Stila Eye Liner

Eyeliner, it’s one of those things that has become my staple and bold cat-eye lined eyes have become my go-to signature look over the years. If someone were to ask me what the two beauty products I would absolutely have to have on a deserted island, I would say eyeliner and lip balm. In my teen years, I used to really dislike the color and the shape of my eyes – too light, too small, too almond shaped and just not right. Now, having in my makeup bag the right eyeliner and mastering the application of this powerful tool, I can truly embrace and enhance what used to be one of my most disliked face features.

On another note, having light colored eyes also puts you in a position of being really sensitive to natural conditions such as wind and sunlight, so the best bet is to be armed with a great pair of sunglasses for UV protection and a great, long-lasting, waterproof eyeliner and mascara that work well for those with sensitive eyes.

I went through loads of eyeliners from different brands and the one I’ve been using religiously for the past 4-5 years is Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. It has all the key features I am looking for in an eyeliner. It’s really dark black (that’s what I usually go for, but they do offer a variety of colors), goes on smooth, has a felt tip for a precise application, is very long-lasting, waterproof and works great with the most sensitive eyes (waterline included). As for the application, practice makes perfect (though a marker-like tip applicator helps significantly) as well as learning the shape of your eyes so you can truly create your signature look. You can purchase it here or here.
