BY BEAUTY BAY AQUAVATED LINER PALETTE BRIGHTS
There is nothing better in the coloured eyeliner world than a water-activated eyeliner, and we only have to do a few scrolls on Instagram to back up that point. Now, not only is By BEAUTY BAY’s Aquavated Liner Palette Brights ultra-pigmented, smooth, and budge-, crack-proof, but it also features a hidden colour. Sure, you get four shades on the face of it, but with a little arts and crafts, you can mix that white with any other shade to make yourself a pastel palette. It’s genius really.
GLISTEN COSMETICS SPLIT LINER
Sticking with the innovative water-activated theme, we have Glisten Cosmetics’ Split Liners. The creamy, ultra-pigmented liners each feature two complimenting shades that are made to be mixed, matched, or to create ombre liner looks. All we’re saying is, you need at least 12 of these.
