Eye Liner

The purpose of eyeliner to enhance the size and shape of your eyes.

Eyeliner can be pencil, liquid, felt tip or cake. Pencil eyeliners tend to be quite popular because they are easy to use.  Liquid eyeliners on the other hand requires practice, before you will achieve enough control to create precise lines. The relative newcomer is felt tip liners,  which are quite similar to liquid eyeliners in consistency and offers the user a bit more control.
