Just like accenting your outfit with the perfect scarf, the right eyeliner can accessorize your eyes with ease. There are several types of eyeliner, but pencil is the easiest type of liner to master because most minor fixes are just a smudge away.
Pencil can also be a very versatile product depending on how you sharpen it—drill down to a blunt edge for a polished point or dull the tip on your hand for a softer smear. Either way, choose a creamy formula that glides on with ease, like Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner, to avoid creating too much friction on the delicate skin around the eyes.
The secret to Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner's intensity is in the dark kajal formula. Used for centuries by women in India and other Eastern parts of the world, kajal is a richly intense black ingredient that delivers stunning definition. And with its unique conal tip, it glides on effortlessly for a dramatic, captivating eye look.
Go from a subtle day look to a glam night look by gradually creating a thicker line that extends outward for a sultry eye, or penciling in and smudging a second coat of liner for a smoky eye. Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner's blendable, versatile formula makes creating all your eye looks as easy as 1, 2, 3.
The 60s-inspired cat eye has been a sultry staple for decades, but this retro beauty trend is anything but dated. Meticulously winged tips are one of the tougher skills to master, but with these tricks and a little practice (and some makeup remover), you’ll go from bland to glam in no time.
Step 1: Make tiny dots all along the lash line, starting from the inner corner of the eye and working your way out.
Step 2: Channel your inner-toddler and connect the dots, holding the edge of your eyelid taut. Rest your elbow on a table for an extra steady hand.
Step 3: To add more drama, use the side of the liner to draw a thicker countouring line. Smudge if desired.
Expert tip: If you fudge, don’t panic. Keep a Q-tip with one dry end (for blending) and one end dipped in makeup remover (for damage control) nearby.
