Trade your black liner for one of these colored liquid eyeliners for a fresh new look this season.
Sketch Marker, $20 at Too Faced
Count them: there are 12 different shades to choose from in Too Faced's Sketch Marker collection. Resist the temptation to go for black or brown and try something unexpected like white, yellow or peach. The colors are surprisingly wearable with the pastels delivering a soft wash and the deeper tones providing a sultry finish that's perfect for date night. The liquid liners are inspired by Japanese calligraphy pens and feature flexible tips that make it easy to draw the waterproof formula on in a fluid line.
Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner, $22 at Sephora
When eyeliner is in a striking shade, it's imperative that it has a precise brush, otherwise the bold color will reveal every squiggle and smudge. Like the name implies, the eyeliner has a fine-tip brush. Use it to draw thick and thin lines for a #flawless flick every time. The bottle has a metallized finish and microfine knurling (read: ridges) that make the product easy to find in makeup bags. The design also provides a secure grip when lining eyes. Choose from 10 shades in shimmer, sparkly and matte finishes.
NYX Professional Makeup
Vivid Brights Liner, $7 at NYX Cosmetics
Black does a decent job of enhancing eyes, but it cannot create the same punchy effect as a colorful eyeliner. The aptly named Vivid Brights collection contains nine eyeliners that wake up eyes with just a flick. There's no need for mascara. At less than $10, try a few different colors. There's a full rainbow to choose from, including yellow, pastel lime green and light red.
Kat Von D
Ink Liner, $20 at Kat Von D
Kat Von D is known for bold and unexpected makeup colors. The Ink Liner has a few surprise options, including white, hunter green and periwinkle. Choose from 10 eye-enhancing colors. The liquid liner pen has a crisp tip for a precise cat eye. There's no need to draw over the line to build up the color. There's ample pigment in the first sweep.
Liquidlast Liner, $21 at MAC Cosmetics
When MAC says this liner is long-wearing, it means it. Once it's applied, it will stay on until it's removed with makeup remover. It won't smudge or flake off. Choose from nine shades in a range of pearl, matte and metallic finishes. Our advice: Try the bright teal and deep oxblood.
Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, $22 at Sephora
Put down the colorful eyeshadows and pick up a statement-making liner. Stila's range has some unique options, but they're all easy to wear. If you're hesitant to leave your comfort zone, play around with teal, forest green and indigo. There are 12 colors on offer and they all have a quick-drying, waterproof finish. The liquid eyeliner has a marker-like tip that is intuitive to use whether you're an eyeliner newbie or a seasoned pro. The formula glides on without pulling, feathering or smudging.
Make Up For Ever
Aqua XL Ink Eye Liner, $24 at Sephora
Choose from a good array of colors and finishes with the Aqua XL Ink Eye Liner. There are matte, satin, shimmer and metallic options and a selection of easy-to-wear shades. All of the liquid liners are highly pigmented and promise up to 24 hours of waterproof wear. We dare you to see how long the liner will last. Once applied with the precision tip, it's not supposed to fade, transfer or smudge.
Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Liner, $7.99 at Ulta Beauty
Keep a tried-and-true eyeliner shape, but experiment with different liquid liner colors. Maybelline's Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Liner range has six different options. Beyond the classic gold, there's shimmering teal, deep purple and sand. The eyeliners are ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested and suitable for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes. The result is 24 hours of smudge-proof wear without itchiness or stinging eyes.
Matte Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $24 at Sephora
Those who want color don't want a wishy-washy finish. Black Up's formulas are super saturated, guaranteeing intensity. What's more, they're specifically designed for women of color so the liquid liner won't get lost on deeper complexions. Choose from six quick-drying matte colors. Draw on the liner and the color will stay put for up to 24 hours.
Infallible Paints Eyeliner, $9.99 at Ulta Beauty
Makeup is all about creating the right kind of impact. These bright liners play up peepers without looking clownish. The black option will become a staple, but the five other shades are worth a try. They enhance the color and shape of eyes in a totally different way. The 0.1 mm felt tip allows users to draw a thin or thick line. Even the skinniest streak will stand out thanks to the pigmented formula.
We’re not saying you should give up your black cat eye for good, but this spring is all about having fun with colored liquid eyeliner. Get ready to try on a whole new look and embrace the rainbow with green, blue, pink, red, yellow and even white liners.
If you’re accustomed to black, we can understand why you’d be hesitant to start rimming your eyes with lime green or turquoise, but it’s a switch that will pay off. Not only is colored eyeliner perfect for spring, it also doesn’t require any new techniques. Simply draw on the liner in the signature flick you’ve been doing for years for a fresh, eye-popping effect.
Need more convincing? Colored eye makeup has been a big trend the last few seasons with the Spring 2018 and Fall 2018 runways showing how a bit of bright eyeliner can wake up the eye area. What’s more, colored liquid eyeliners are hard to overdo, unlike eyeshadows, because of the fine-tipped brush. A bright line is also easier to pull off than an eyelid full of color.
Whether you try a pastel option, a rich jewel tone or a bold neon shade, these gorgeous colored liquid eyeliners will help you get out of your black liner rut.
