5 Eyeliners Perfect for TightliningJune 22, 2020
You've probably heard a thing or two about tightlining, the makeup technique that sounds like a daring circus act but actually creates the illusion of darker, fuller lashes. While lining the inner rims of your eyes, a.k.a., the waterline, might sound tricky, using the right tools is the key to success. You don’t want to use just any eyeliner pen or pencil — a liner that suits a cat-eye, for example, might not be best for tightlining. Instead, you’re going to want to use a product with a rounded tip and a formula that glides on easily and then stays put. Ahead, find five of our favorites.
This new formula was created with exclusive technology that gives the eyeliner a smooth texture, pigmented finish and all-day wear. Choose from eight shades, ranging from neutrals to jewel tones.
This gel-like formula is the perfect match for tightlining because it’s long-lasting and smudge-proof — it won’t fade for a whopping 36 hours.
This satin pencil glides on without tugging and is formulated with mineral pigments that are safe for sensitive eyes and are smudge-resistant. An ergonomic rubber grip allows for easy application.
The 24/7 Glide-On pencil is one of our favorite tightlining tools because it comes in 40 shades. Whether you’re looking for a metallic sheen or opaque finish for a defined look, there’s a pencil in this range for you.
