Low to Luxe: Liquid Eyeliner


I favor the liquids when it comes to eyeliner. Sure, I use pencils and gels, too, but when it comes to my every day makeup, it’s usually liquid liner. It’s easier for me to work with and just a subtle line along the lashes makes my eyes look brighter and wider. Like the eye in the ‘Marc Jacobs’ look above. And on other days the slightly winged ‘Stella McCartney’ — love that! I’ve gotten several requests recently for liquid liner recommendations, so thought it best to share my top picks with everyone low-to-luxe style. You’ll notice a theme, here. These liners all look pretty similar, right? Trust me when I say felt tip “pen” style is the way to go. You don’t have to be an expert to use any of these liners. I promise.


My absolute favorite is NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates, a glossy black. This skinny little tube has hundreds of applications in it and each one of them is budgeproof.

Physician’s Formula makes a ton of different eyeliners and the best, in my opinion, is the  2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum. If you like an inky look as I do, make sure to look for the darkest shade possible (Ultra Black). The others don’t have as deep of an intensity. This is a fab budget buy and with regular use, should last about 4-6 weeks.

I’ve been using L’Oreal Lineur Intense for the longest! I really love the felt tip applicator and have great makeup memories with this.

Falling square in the middle of my low-to-luxe spectrum is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye. I like the black color, yes, but the real perk here is the colors Stila offers. Moss is a favorite of mine as a more interesting option than brown for a more subdued look. And you can really have some fun layering with the Turquoise, Cobalt and White shades.

If you favor high-end beauty, it doesn’t get much better Le Metier de Beaute. And the brand’s Precision Liquid Liner in Noir is all that. The application is foolproof – perhaps the most user-friendly eyeliner pen ever.

To all my liquid liner fans out there, what are you currently using?

I love to love, and I love Valentine’s Day. I’ve picked out the perfect Boston Terrier card for my husband (it’s our tradition on all occasions) and we’ll probably spend the night snuggling with our Boston, who turns five this month, and chatting with my niece who has a V-day b-day. I can’t help but be excited by the influx of pink, red and heart-shaped everything in stores right now.

I’ve pulled together my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired items, beauty and otherwise, that I’ve got at the very top of my wish list.

Happy love month!
