What type of eyeliner is best?

How to Choose the Best Eye Liner

Which eye liner you use is a matter of the look you want and what's easiest for you. Liquid, gel and felt-tip-type pen liners create strong, well-defined lines. Powdery pencil and fat crayon liners are better when you want a softer, smudgier effect. Creamy pencils create a strong line and can also be smudged into a smokier look. Many women find pencils easier to use than liquid, especially for everyday use when there's no time to fix mistakes.
