Best Waterproof Eyeliner

Create dramatic or understated effects with the best waterproof eyeliner on the market. This eye makeup essential is a must-have for bringing out the best of your natural beauty in a smudge-proof formula that promises to outlast the day, rain or shine.

Laura Geller, Bare Escentuals, and Lancôme are just a few designer names offering eyeliners that perfectly complement your chosen eye shadow while keeping a fresh, solid line despite any tears, perspiration, or wet weather. Women that prefer mineral makeup will appreciate a mineral-infused formula that boosts vitamin E, all in an easy-glide pencil applicator that makes it easy to create the right line thickness, or thinness, you desire. Pencil eyeliners provide rich, creamy colors that stay put all day, and these hues go beyond the traditional black and brown. Shake things up with a deep navy, plum, or smoky moss eyeliner that can bring out specks of eye color you didn’t even know were there.

When shopping around for the best waterproof eyeliner that meets your needs, consider liquid eyeliner. Although the application may take some getting used to, especially for those used to pencil liners, liquid eyeliner is packed with rich pigment that glides on like nothing else, creating a bold, dramatic line. Aside from the standard brush application, some liquid liners have a convenient sponge tip applicator for improved control. This makes application even easier for those transitioning from pencil liners. For a night on the town, choose a formula infused with glittering sparkles.

Another option for lasting wear is gel eyeliner. Designed to be applied using a small angled brush, you can also dip any pencil liner into the gel liner for a more controlled application. One benefit of gel liner is that it is crease-resistant and glides on with little effort, but be sure to seal the jar immediately after using to avoid drying out.
