Best For: Waterproof Eyes

Benefit They’re Real Push Up Gel Liner Pen, £18.50

The comfortable, squidgy nib of the pen helps get the perfect flick without scratching. It’s waterproof and lasts all day without even a smudge. The angled nib gives a super close line giving you a sexy feline look!

Best For: A Feline Flick

Bourjois Mega Liner In Dark Black, £7.49

This soft marker-style tip glides onto lids without dragging. It’s seriously saturated with jet-black liner, so even the slightest swipe leaves an intensely pigmented line. The flat nib and inky formula is the ultimate combo for perfecting a sharp, cat-eye flick.

Best For: A Bold Thick Flick

KIKO Daring Look Eye Marker, £8.90

This chunky liner ticks every box; the tapered tip is long enough to get right into the corners you can draw a thick or thin line depending on how hard you press. The fat pen is really easy to grip so drawing a clean, flawless line is foolproof. Once on, it doesn’t budge and stays smudge-free all night long.

Best For: Tracing Your Lashline

Urban Decay Ink For Eyes, £15

The needlepoint tip is amazing for drawing a natural, barely-there line, plus it’s thin enough to reach those awkward inner corners. If you want to make more of a statement, the ultra-pigmented formula makes it easy to build up the thickness with extra layers, plus the glossy finish gives an instant glam boost.

Best For: Smokey Eyes

Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock Gel Liner, £8.99

Genius product alert! This liner is unique in that a creamy gel formula comes up through the tip, allowing the precision of an inky liner with the smooth, blendable finish of a gel. Wear it on your upper or lower lashline to instantly amp up your smokey eyes.

Best For: A Graphic Line

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner, £5.49

Draw a thick or thin line with the 3D slanted tip, one stroke is enough to get a flawless, streak-free line. The felt nib is harder than most, so it’s easy to create catwalk-worthy, angular lines.
