Is it time for an eyeliner update?
From pencils and pens to gels and beyond, the eyeliner options are endless. Essential for adding definition to the eyes or taking your look from day to night—and an easy way to experiment with color, to boot—no makeup collection is complete without at least an eyeliner or two. But could your liner look use an update? These two new offerings are up to the task…
Back in the day, cake liner was the only game in town—and it’s back in an all-natural way thanks to RMS Beauty. The new Vintage Cake Liner is a highly pigmented super-dark powder that can be applied with a wet or dry brush depending on how intense and precise you’d like your line—or used as a matte shadow. Cake liner has a many upsides… First, it lasts for a really long time (I’m sure my mom had more than a few for 10 years or more). You can also create a smudgy, sooty look or a more defined line. Even more, you never have to worry about melting or leakage while traveling or toting it around in your bag.
A decidedly more modern take on this beauty staple is the new Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Smudgy Matte Eyeliner. This loose-powder liner delivers a lived-in, morning-after look without the wait, and the pearlized grey color makes for a sultry smoky eye. The main reason I’d love to try this is because it requires little to no eyeliner-application skill—and I’m definitely down with that.
