Finding a great eyeliner is a struggle for so many beauty lovers. It’s gotta have a perfect, long-lasting formula, an easy-to-use applicator, and a reasonable price. And who has time to try ’em all? But just as with finding the perfect shampoo, or a wonderful hairstylist, a fantastic eyeliner is just a recommendation away. In this case, that rec comes from the massive beauty community on Pinterest.
“Liquid eyeliner is known for its precision — clean sharp lines are often used to create a mod cat eye — but it’s also the trickiest to apply because there’s no room for smudging or repurposing for a smoky eye,” Larkin Brown, Pinterest researcher and style expert, told Teen Vogue.
So what are people loving? Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($22, Sephora). Its liquid formula and brush tip have made it appealing to makeup artists and the average cat eye lover alike, making it the most pinned eyeliner on the site. Brown adds, “This is a top pick on Pinterest because of its saturated colors, quick-dry formula, and staying power on even the oiliest skin.”
Bonus: This liner comes in not one, not two, but 15 shades, ranging from basic black to bold turquoise to daring white. With that level of variety, you can finally try all those trendy new liner looks of 2016.
Now all you need to do is start practicing those handy eyeliner tricks so you can make the most of your new makeup.
