Ladies, if you are always fumbling with your make-up pouch at 7am stressing over your uneven eyeliner, this article is for you. Today, let’s learn more about four easy types of eyeliner and find out how you can ace your eyeliner game in seconds!
Firstly, you have to know there are different kinds of eyeliner, because not all of them are the same! Here’s a list of our top four:
- Felt Tip Liner
- Brush Tip Liner
- Dip Brush Liner
- Gel Liner (NOT liquid!)
- THE FELT TIP LINER
For those of you who want to achieve that dark & intense cat-eye, try the Felt Tip. If you are just starting to get into the whole eyeliner thing, this would be perfect for you too! A Felt Tip liner is one of the easiest to use because they act like actual markers. And we all know how easy it is to work with markers. The Felt Tip formula comes out the same as a brush tip, but it gives you more control which means you wouldn’t have to deal with excess fluid. With the Felt Tip, you’ll never have to worry about messing up your eyeliner!
2. THE BRUSH TIP LINER

Brush tip liners are a go-to for many ladies as it can either help them create a simple everyday look or even a dramatic cat-eye. Whether you want perfectly defined killer wings or a simple one-stroke liner, trust that this will do the job.
Liners with brush tips give more control to create thin to thick lines with ease and can help create a wide range of looks from natural to dramatic. However, do take note that it is also a lot easier to mess your eyeliner game with this brush tip liner because of the hairs of the brush. Don’t be afraid to mess up! Remember, you can always just wipe it off with a q-tip.
3. THE DIP BRUSH LINER

If you are always worrying about running out of eyeliner fluid while drawing the perfect cat-eye, fear no more. Dip brush liners are not only refillable, but the brushes are also made with micro-fibre hairs for precise application.
If you’re in search of an environmentally-friendly dip brush liner, check out Zao’s Liquid Eyeliner in Black above. It is made from bamboo and certified organic and it’s also vegan & cruelty-free!
Plus point: Every purchase comes with a reusable pouch too!
4. THE GEL LINER
Ever seen these gel eyeliners at a makeup store and wondered “Just how the hell do I use that?”
Gel liners are durable, versatile and comes with a buildable formula. It’s just like painting or calligraphy, where you dip the brush into the gel or ink and apply it onto your eyes. With a pair of steady hands (train them!), you would see that the gel formula glides on smoothly, making it an almost impossible task for you to screw up.
So there we have it, our favourite go-to eyeliners for any and every occasion. Don’t be afraid to experiment with all types of eyeliner! Remember, you can always remove everything if you mess up along the way.
