5 Eyeliners That Won’t Smudge Even When You Ugly-Cry

Eyeliner is every makeup lover’s lifesaver. It makes you look fierce and awake even when you’re feeling soft and sleepy.

A quick, precise swipe of the brush pen is all you need to create a signature look. Winged liner, red lipstick, some blush and you’re all good to go.

Eyeliner is also notorious for smudging. Even blinking can cause your eyeliner to smear and destroy a good makeup day. Worst feeling ever.

Every time you wear eyeliner, it’s like the Hunger Games of makeup. Eyeliner can make or break your makeup look, so we’ve compiled a list of liners that’ll last through the whole day. You could even cry with these, and you’d still be on fleek.
