Cream Eye Liners

Cream eye liners are the answer for anyone who has trouble drawing a straight line with an eyeliner pencil. You can apply the creams with a flat make-up brush, and they come in a cream or a gel form that dries quickly and lasts all day. Here are four of my favorite brands.

Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner gives you deep, dark smoky eyes. This long-wearing, waterproof liner can be smudged while wet to create a super dramatic effect. Buy it here for $14.50. Available in black honey, true black, smoke grey, and deep brown.

The Smashbox Proof Cream Eyeliner Palette is the best way to sample 12 hot creme eye liner colors at once, including Midnight Green, Deep Bronze, and one called Lava. To use, apply a thin line at your lash line and then gradually increase thickness by the outer corners. This can also be smudged for a smoky look. Buy it here for $32.

To see the rest,

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner was named Best Long-Wearing Shadow or Liner by In Style Magazine. This eyeliner has the precision of liquid liner with the ease of a gel-based formula, and it's also water-resistant. To use, just dip the tip of your brush into the gel and quickly work the product onto your eye. Buy it in 11 colors here for $18.

The LORAC Cream Eyeliner Collection Palette 1 includes eight magnificent shades that line, define, and accent any eye shape and color. Apply the liners dry and smudge a little bit, or wet the brush just slightly for a more exact line. Buy it here for $32.50. It also comes with a handy double-sided eyeliner brush inside.

rest your elbow on something sturdy,pull your eyelid taut with the other hand. if you mess up that is what q tips are for, to make it look like you were going for the smudgy look. what i like to do is you a pencil first and then go over with liquid, it last longer and its harder to make a mistake

I have used Smashbox Cream Liner for 4 years now, I won't go back to anything else. I have the pallet and just a pot of black. This stuff is amazing, so smooth so easy. You can create to many looks and brush it perfect.
