I don’t like to bring along extra makeup products if I don’t have to. It doesn’t really matter if I’m carrying a baby-scale minaudiere or a super-roomy tote (although, at least the tote gives you the option), I say the less clutter, the better. That’s why I’m a fan of the stuff that doesn’t require a touch-up – but who isn’t? Especially in the summer, when sweat-inducing elements make eyeliner fade extra-fast.
The name of Stila’s liquid liner says it all and doesn’t lie. Not only does it stay in tact all day, it cements itself on your lid the instant you draw it on. Luckily, the tip is perfectly thin and the formula is delightfully lightweight. Make your line as thin or thick as your heart desires. Just whatever you do, be prepared to commit!
Pair it with Urban Decay’s amazing 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner pencil in Perversion, a “matte blackest black” that’s honestly the deepest, sharpest, darkest black I’ve ever seen. Together, you’ll have a truly smoky cat-eye that will last as you dance into the wee hours – and even until the next morning (but don’t let it! You should always wash your face, no matter how tipsy and tired you are!). At Sephora for $20.
