The perfect eyeliners for girls who aren't good at liner!



In my teenage years, I wanted to be Amy Winehouse. She was my absolute idol. I had the jet black hair and thought that loads of eyeliner would help me look more like her! I have very almond shaped eyes meaning that eyeliner has to be drawn on in a very specific way otherwise my eyes can look very small. Over the past few months, I've been loving lots of mascara and a thin line of liner along the top lashes to enhance how thick my lashes are.

I'm always in a rush and I'm also not very good at eye-liner. I've found two liners which have really helped me recently in achieving my perfect big eyed look. Firstly, the Eyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black is easily the best felt tip on the market. The product distributes evenly, dries quickly and gives a nice thin line. This would be my top pick for anyone who likes to wear eyeliner to enhance their eyes rather than to do a feline flick.

If the 60s eye is what you are after, Maybelline's Black Shock eyeliner is perfect for you. This was released BEFORE the Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner and has exactly the same concept- but at half the price point. It's a gel formal in a wind up pen with a silicone nib. The liner itself is very jet black in colour but it takes a few goes to get it right. A little bit of product goes a long way! The effect is a super clean intense liner look- perfect to team with a smoky eye.
