The 20 Best Liquid Eyeliners, According to a Beauty Editor

I’m not exaggerating when I say I’m passionate about liquid eyeliner. I’m a cat-eye enthusiast, and back when I used to venture out into the world daily, my snatched eyeliner was the source of many compliments from friends, co-workers, and even strangers. Seriously, the beauty topic I get the most DMs about is my eyeliner! My big secret? Practice…and the best formulas, of course.

I’m woman enough to admit that it’s taken years and years of trial and error to get my liquid eyeliner skills down pat. I’ve watched an embarrassing number of YouTube tutorials and used to spend my spare time at home rehearsing my stroke in the mirror until I got it just right. And now that I’m a beauty elder (I had a Myspace, OK?), I feel it’s my duty to share the top eyeliner tips I’ve picked up along the way. Check out my tried and true tips ahead, then keep scrolling for the absolute best liquid eyeliners money can buy.
