Be smoking hot this year with smokey eyes! Forget other fads and exercise your eyeliner to create the look everyone loves — the smokey eye! Find out our most loved liners!
The red carpet was filled with every type of different dress at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Jan. 8 — but one thing almost all the stars had in common — their smokey eye. We love seeing this makeup trend across celebs and know this is the look for future award shows. Since a smokey eye is something that never goes out of style, we tried and tested tons of eyeliner to find the best. Read below to find out our top 21 favorites!
Best Eyeliner For Smokey Eye — Liquid Liners
For a thin liquid tip (and the perfect cat eye), try the Laura Geller Eye Calligraphy Liquid Eyeliner, L’Oreal Infallibale The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner, Clinique Eye Defining Liquid Liner, Sonia Kashuk Dramtically Defining Liquid Eyeliner, or the Terry Ligne Blackstar Intense Liquid Eyeliner. These thin liquid liners are perfect for creating the cat eye. You can get a cat eye look with just a flick of the wrist at the end of the eye creating an arch.
If you want a little bit thicker liner look, the Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Felt-Tip Eyeliner + Serum is a better choice for you.
If you’d like to add a little excitement to your eyeliner — go for the gold! While the Chanel Ligne Graphique De Chanel Liquid Eyeliner comes in the traditional Noir shade — you can dress up the liquid line with Bronze or Platinum. The Lancome Artliner 24h is perfect if you want to get creative! The liquid liner comes in black, blue, green, metallic, and purple, so whatever color you’re looking for, they have it. The Mally Waterproof Luminous Liquid Eyeliner comes in Amethyst, Black Diamond, and Sequin.
If you desire a crayon liner, the Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly Blue Vision is a good fit. What color do you want to give a try?
Pencils And Crayons
For those who aren’t loving the liquid — don’t worry! We found awesome crayon and pencil eyeliners for you. The Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof, New York Color Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, Chanel Le Crayon Yeux, and Physicians Formula 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum are excellent products for a dramatic eye look!
Gel Liners For A Sexy Look
With just a thin, little brush and a dab of the Nars Eye Paint or TopShop Gel Liner in Ink, you can get a totally different texture, but the same smokey eye look! For these liners, you are basically painting on your eyelid.
