The Secret to Flirtatious Eyes: Flatlining

Flatlining is here! A new breed of unique eyeliners, these new pencils are designed with a flat head so that you can create a classic thin line or a thicker bold line depending on how you angle the point. Best of all, these pencils never need sharpening!

To use, start from the inner corners of your eyes and work your way out. First, place the thin edge of the pencil against your upper lashes and draw a line to the middle of your eye. Then twist it so that you've got a profile of the fattest part. Use this to draw the rest of your line. This is a fantastic way to create those sought-after cat eyes. Here are two new products on the market.

Physicians Formula Flat Liner Automatic Eyeliner Pencil is a foolproof way to create a crisp, clean line or a sultry smokey eye. The silky, smooth formula won't skip when you are drawing your line, and I love that it won't irritate my sensitive eyes. It's also designed to stay on all day without smearing or fading away. Buy it here for $5.95; available in Ultra Black, Warm Black, and Dark Brown.
