This week we're going to share with you some of the best black eye liners.

Make up artists often get asked what gel eyeliners are and what is the difference between that and a liquid liner? So we're going to take you through the benefits of a gel eyeliner and whether they're for you. 

Gel eyeliner comes with a round pot and a brush for application. You will find that gel eyeliner is smooth and you have the same control as a pencil as well as more definition than a pencil, with the density of liquid eyeliner. Now we have found sometimes that if you set gel eyeliner with a eye shadow it will last longer. This product is amazing with really trying to get flicks especially if you are a first-time user! The only down side is if you have a heavy lid  that folds over to the front of your eye you will find that it will move into the crease,

Here are some great black eye liners currently available:

Now liquid eyeliners are available in many colours and are available in waterproof formulas. A a little tip when applying your eyeliner: have a couple of cotton wool buds and a glass of warm water ready and after you apply your line dip your cotton bud into the water and run it along the top of your line to straighten it up. You will be professional before you know it!
