The Only 4 Smudge-Proof Black Eyeliners You Need This Season

Smudgy, smokey, hazy eyes on a Saturday night are hot. Smudgy, smokey, hazy eyes at a 12 p.m. job interview are not. But if you’re using the wrong eyeliner — you know, the kind that leaves marks in the crease of your eyes and slides below your lower lash lines almost immediately — your odds of looking like a club kid in the middle of the day are well in your favor. WATCH: The Secret to Carrie Underwood's Smoky Eyes So unless you’re cool with walking around with a perpetually smudgy, just-rolled-out-of-bed-and-have-never-heard-of-makeup-wipes look, we suggest you swap your black liner for one that won’t escape your face after a few hours. And to make the search easier on you, we tested out a billion black liners, trolled makeup forums, and stalked makeup-artist recommendations to find the very best black liners that are creamy to apply, super-pigmented, and easy to remove (with makeup remover, of course). Keep reading to find your new favorite liner, and keep your inner club kid where she belongs.
