Why have a top 10 when you can have 1 more!

1. MAC Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Black Ice

  • A soft black pencil liner. Use for all day wear, without smudging.
  • Needs to be sharpened.
  • Remove with waterproof makeup remover ( I love REN Rosa Centifolia Express Make-up Remover from Woolworths)
  • TIP: I like to line underneath the top lashes (inside the tear-line) to make lashes look thicker.


2. CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Espresso

  • A soft, deep, coffee-coloured pencil. Also Longwear, doesn’t budge.
  • Twist-up pencil. It lasts longer because you don’t lose product by sharpening every 5 minutes.
  • Remove with waterproof makeup remover.
  • TIP: Brown/grey eye pencils can be more flattering on paler skins and lighter hair colours.

3. MAC Crayon Khol in Smoulder

  • This is a very soft black kohl pencil, ideal for smudging to create a smokey eye.
  • Sharpen.
  • You can use a gentle makeup remover like Bioderma Crealine H2O (Available from Clicks/ Dischem)
  • TIP: Draw along your lash-line and use a soft blending brush or your clean finger to smudge and smoke outward.

4. TOPSHOP Eye Crayon in Copper

  • Very soft copper crayon. Dries and stays put!
  • Sharpen with a fat pencil sharpener.
  • Go for the Waterproof makeup remover.
  • TIP: Use on the inner corner of your eye and smudge to brighten your eyes.

5. BOBBI BROWN Long-Wear Shadow stick in Bark

  • Technically not a eye pencil, but a twist-up, shadow stick.
  • Waterproof makeup remover.
  • TIP: I love this MULTITASKING PRODUCT! It gives me a really soft and subtle line. I run my eyebrow brush along the tip of the stick and blend into the lash line for a slimmer line.

6. STILA Smudge stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Tetra

  • A twist-up, budge-proof liner ,in a shimmery purple colour.
  • Waterproof makeup remover.
  • TIP: Purple liner is beautiful on green or blue eyes. It really makes them ‘pop’!

7. CHANEL le Crayon Kohl Intense in Clair

  • A beautifully soft, flesh-coloured liner.
  • It’s a pencil, so you have to sharpen it.
  • Normal makeup remover.
  • TIP: To brighten and freshen up tired eyes, line your tear-line with this pencil.

8. SMASHBOX Limitless Eyeliner in Indigo Ink

  • A soft, Navy coloured liner.
  • Comes with its own sharpener attached. Bonus!
  • Bring out the Waterproof remover!
  • A great alternative to black Eyeliner. Makes Blue and Green eyes more intense.

9. RUBYBOX Cat Kohl Liner in Grey

  • A soft dark grey pencil liner.
  • No waterproof remover necessary.
  • TIP: To make large eyes seem smaller, line inner tear-line with a subtle grey instead of black.

10. STILA Stay all day waterproof liquid liner

  • This a felt tip pen and in my opinion the rockstar of liquid liners.
  • Stays absolutely put, but easy to remove.
  • TIP: Start drawing your line from the corners of your eye and work inward.

11. MAC Teddy Crayon Kohl

  • This is a lovely soft bronze brown with a soft shimmer.
  • It’s a pencil and easy to remove and smudge.
  • TIP: Use for a chocolate smokey eye. This is also fabulous lip liner for dark skins.
