Idiot-Proof Eye Makeup

I love eye makeup, but I am sort of a klutz when it comes to applying it, and judging from the comments on this site, I think many FabSugar readers feel the same way. That's why I've been delighted by all of the idiot-proof eye makeup on the market lately. Here's a look at the easy-to-use, no-fail eye makeup you should have in your arsenal.


Sue Devitt E-Z Rollerball Eye Shadow, $18, available in 11 different colors here. These shadows take a page from roll-on lip gloss or deodorant, so you can roll right onto your lids. No brush required.

Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick, $20, available here. Apply this foundation before putting on your other eye makeup, and it creates a dry, matte surface that makes eye shadow go on smoothly and stay put without the ugly creases.

To see the rest,

Maybelline Shadow Stylist Loose Powder, $5.99, available here.
Using a sponge that dips into a reservoir of powder, this eye shadow is applied like eyeliner so it's nearly impossible to mess up.

Cover Girl Liquid Felt Tip Eyeliner, $4.99, available in four shades here. This have-it-all liner pen is easy to use if you weren't born with makeup artist skills. Color glides on evenly to create the right line without tugging.

I dont like the covergirl liner. I tried it awhile a go and the color ran out fast...maybe they have improved. I really like the Lorel Color Intense felt tip liner. The liquid is seperate from the brush so there is no issue with trying to get the color out

Would Lancome Artliner be considered a felt tip eyeliner? Because if so, I LOVE felt tip eyeliners. Very easy to use.

dont like roll on eyeshadow at all!! But the felt tip is amazing for making the more dramatic looks! ~*~Life was Simpler back then~*~

I can't do roll-ons either. The maybelline shadow in the pearl color is fab to use as a corner-of-the-eye highlighter, don't over do it and it will open your eyes beautifully. ___________________________________________ ~~ Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing ~~

i have to try the powder wand shadows... the roll on is a disappointment, it either goes on too light, ends up all over your face, or you get a weird shape because you can't control how it goes on

I'm not a fan of "roll on" anything. But felt tip eyeliner: I may have to try. Sometimes 7am is too early to apply liquid eyeliner correcty.
