Listed: Different Types Of Eyeliners Out There
An eyeliner is a wonder cosmetic. It instantly adds that little bit extra to your everyday mundane look. Depending on how, and how much eyeliner you use, your looks go from classy chic to glam babe. In short, we think eyeliners are pretty cool, and they make you look pretty too. However, finding the perfect type of eyeliner can get confusing with the different types of eyeliners, like gel, pencil, etc., available in the market. And that is precisely why, we present to you the following information on different types of eyeliners.
This is the most basic and probably the most widely used eyeliner type. It works on the same principle a normal pencil does; you have to sharpen it using a sharpener when the tip of the liner becomes blunt.
Application wise too it is easy and rather manageable by un-trained and shaky hands. It comes in a wide range of colours and is easily available in all cosmetic stores. Almost all brands have pencil eyeliners in their product range. It is also the best option if you want to get some colour onto your water line.
Con: If the pencil isn't sharpened well, getting a neat and thin line is difficult.
Liquid eyeliner is probably one of the most difficult-to-perfect eyeliner type out there. It comes in a small bottle or tube, with a brush that you can pull out. This brush is what you apply your eyeliner with. If you want to try out a liquid eyeliner, it's better if you have practiced with other types before.

This liner requires a steady and light hand, and also a good amount of patience. You might end up with liner all over your eyelid if you hurry the application process. Apart from these, if a thin fine line of eyeliner is more your style than this product can give you just that, and it is also easily removeable.
Con: Requires precision and time to dry.
Felt Tip Eyeliner
This eyeliner is like the liquid eyeliner, only much easier to apply. It looks like a felt or sketch pen. It does give you more ease in application than a gel eyeliner does, but not as much as a pencil liner does. If you like thicker lines of eyeliner, then this product is a good option for you.
Remember to start at the middle of your eye when you apply the liner and then come back from either side to the centre.
Con: Hard to remove and might need multiple strokes.
This particular type of eyeliner has been the choice of mostly professional makeup artists, however, general population has begun to use it too as of late. The eyeliner comes in a small pot and one must use an angled or fine tipped brush to apply it. It does require a steady hand, but it is fairly easy to apply.
Because of its creamy texture, it can also be used as a base for eye shadow and can help create an amazing smoky eye look.
Con: Product tends to dry out over time and it isn't as convenient as the other types.
So these are the different types of eyeliners available in the market. Choose one that you think you will be most comfortable with.
