If there is one makeup product that has stuck with us through thick and thin, it’s the humble eyeliner. From grunge looks, to the perfect wing, a smoky eye, and everything in between, eyeliner completes just about every single look. But it doesn’t come without its flaws – everyone’s afraid of dreaded panda eyes. That’s where a waterproof eyeliner becomes your new beauty BFF – everything you love about your favourite eyeliner, without the bad parts. We’ve got our top waterproof liners together, from liquid to kohl, and brights to classic black.
Eyeko Sport Waterproof Eyeliner
If there’s a brand that knows how to create eye products, it’s Eyeko. The renowned makeup brand has brought us some of our all-time favourite mascaras, and the Sport Waterproof Eyeliner is no exception. As the name might suggest, this eyeliner has been created to withstand even the sweatiest of workouts at the gym. The gel pencil formula comes in a classic black shade and glides onto the lid effortlessly with extreme colour payoff. The dual-ended pencil features a smudging brush on one end, making it ideal for whatever look you want to try out.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Micro Tip
Another firm favourite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Micro Tip Eyeliner. This liquid liner pen has one of the finest tips that we’ve ever seen, making it perfect for mastering a precise wing. The formula itself is an intense black shade that defines the eyes in seconds. The smudge-proof finish dries down and doesn’t budge, no matter whether your heading out in the height of summer or on a night out with your friends.
BH Cosmetics Power Pencil Waterproof
At BEAUTY BAY HQ, we’re all big fans of a coloured liner, and these Power Pencils by BH Cosmetics are right up our street. Available in matte, shimmer, neutral, and bright shades, you’re going to want to add more than one to your bag. The ultra-creamy formula glides onto the lids with ease, but instead of staying soft and prone to smudging, this eyeliner dries down to a waterproof finish that will not budge. The Shimmer Gold shade is ideal for creating soft, bronze eye looks.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Crème Colour
A staple in countless MUAs makeup bags, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Crème Colour is a coveted classic for a reason. The ultra-opaque, creamy formula makes creating the perfect wing or smoky eye simple, and the weightless texture doesn’t feel heavy on the lids. The formula sets in place so that the colour refuses to smudge or run – exactly what we are looking for.
Linda Hallberg Mood Crayon
If you’re not familiar with Linda Hallberg’s Mood Crayons, then you need to get to know them. These multi-use, super bright pencils come in a range of bright and neutral shades to complement any look. Use as eyeliner, eyeshadow, or even as body art. The super soft, ultra-creamy formula makes blending these shades so easy, but they also dry down to a finish that will stay in place all day (and night) long. We love the tangerine shade Likeable to add a pop of colour to a neutral makeup look.
Depixym Cosmetic Emulsion
It’s safe to say that we have been well and truly obsessed with Depixym since they landed at BEAUTY BAY. The multi-use cosmetic emulsions can be used for just about anything beauty related (check out the full list here) and the range of colours is second to none. The versatile formula is so waterproof in fact that it will not budge unless you use an oil-based cleanser. If you want a long-lasting finish, then this is it.
Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner Black Waterproof
A simple felt-tip liner can make mastering the perfect wing as easy as anything, and that’s why we love the Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner Black Waterproof. The precise, delicate tip lines the lids perfectly, whilst the opaque, waterproof formula lasts without transferring, running, or smudging.
