Draw the Line

These grade-A eyeliners will turn you into a devoted pencil pusher


OLD FAITHFUL: The creamy cult-favorite, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($19 each;, skims along your lash line without leaving little gaps and requires zero in the way of midday touchups.


CHOCOLATE REIGN: Tom Ford Eye Defining Pencil in Espresso ($36; is a dark brown deep enough to create soft but striking definition.


LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE: Try smudging Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeliner Crayon Intense in Platinum ($30; in the inner corners to brighten up your eyes when you look tired.


SHARPER IMAGE: Shu Uemura Lasting Gel Pencil Eye Liner in Black ($24; is a deep, dark black that is always on point thanks to its super skinny, twist-up lead, which never needs to be sharpened.


THIN GREEN LINE: You might not apply every color of the rainbow on your eyes at once like the models in the Chanel spring 2014 show, but for a hint of a wild streak, try the apple green Butter London Wink Eye Pencil in Jaded Jack ($18;


CHUBBY FRIEND: With a wax and oil formula that adds a hint of light reflection, the Givenchy Magic Kajal Eye Pencil in Brun D’Exception ($24; can also blend out over lids for a bronzy shadow effect.


SMOOTH MOVE: If you’ve never mastered gel or liquid eyeliner, try Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer ($25;, which makes fore a shiny, opaque, and precise black line.


ABOVE WATER: In a range of flattering colors, Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eyeliners ($19 each; are completely budge-proof without being dry.


COP A TEAL: Get a head start on the Marc Jacobs spring 2014 blue eyeliner look with Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Blue Oasis ($26;, a universally wearable shade of aqua.


HOLY SMOKES: For her latest liner, Bobbi Brown created the Smokey Eye Kajal Liner ($24 each; in saturated jewel tones that can be easily blended and smudged for a dramatic look.
