If there’s something that I reach for daily, no matter what type of makeup look I’m aiming for, it’s eyeliner. I don’t think anything else makes you look (or feel for that matter) more awake than a slick of it, and I just love how customisable it is. For days in the office, or casual afternoons, I tend to rely on a swipe of pencil, but for evenings out, I’ve been loving playing around with something a little more dramatic or geometric.
The pencil I probably use most regularly out of the set’s four choices is the Graphic Eyes pencil in ‘Black To Earth’ pencil which is a super smooth, waterproof liner that works incredibly on the waterline. A single stroke gives slick definition which is perfect for a sleek and easy day look.
The formula is super creamy, with incredible colour payoff. A single stroke is super-black, and once is more than enough for day, and if I’m heading out after work, it’s so easy to add a little more to achieve a slightly more dramatic look.
If I’m looking to get a smokier, more rock’n’roll look, I’ve been turning to the Soft Kohl Eyeliner in ‘Noir.’ It’s the kohl of your dreams, as it’s so easy to smoke out, without turning too panda-esque. I love it applied across the top of my upper lash line, then messes up a little using a blending brush. It provides the perfect amount of drama which only needs a little mascara and gloss to complete the look!
Much like the other pencil in the set, Zoeva’s Khol is just the dream. The formula is soft enough to manipulate with fingers or a brush when applying, but once it dries, it will.not.move.
If I’m wanting to create a look that’s seriously dramatic, the set’s Calli Graphic Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Black.’ Packaged with a fine tip and liner which you dip it into, it’s the perfect product for adding a Cleopatra-esque flick to evening eye looks.
As someone who isn’t all too confident creating serious ‘looks’ (I watch those you-tube tutorials in awe) this couldn’t be easier to use! After applying a subtle taupe over my lid, then blending a deeper chocolate into my socket and into the lash line, I’ve been adding a lick of this from the inner corners, all the way to the flick. Super pigmented, and very black, it’s a no fail way to make me feel terribly glamorous, and it’s deep colour and matte finish could feel more chic!
Last but not least, is probably the liner which I find most fun to use in the set – the Graphic Eyes pen in ‘Black To Earth.’ After spending years pretty much exclusively using pencil liners, I’ve been adding a subtle cat eye to day looks when I want to mix it up a little.
The superfine tip means that adding a subtle line to my upper lash line couldn’t be easier. I trace the upper lash line ending in a super subtle kitten flick. I love how it’s an easy way to update my makeup, without having to put a whole lot more work in!
