Watery eyes? Don’t worry. My eyes water – all the time. The moment I even take a look at eyeliner, my eyes turn watery. I’ve spent lots of time searching for an eyeliner that won’t budge even with my watery eyes, and I’ve found 5 that stay put, all day long – even with my watery eyes.
1. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
Why I Like It: Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner is my #1, go-to liquid eyeliner. They claim it’s “the magic wand of makeup” and they aren’t kidding. Although, I will say, if you’re not going for the perfect, winged eyeliner look, there’s other mascaras that will do the trick. But, if you’re looking for the best wing without smudging all day, this is the best 24-hour formula I’ve found.
2. Girlactik Smudge Proof Precise Marker Liner
Why I Like It: This is the next-best liquid eyeliner, trailing right behind Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner. The major difference I find with this versus Kat Von D’s is that this brush tip is a lot softer which makes it easier to mess up if you aren’t precise. Other than that, this eyeliner stays all day without a problem.
Where to Buy: Girlactik
3. IT Cosmetics Gel Liner
Why I Like It: If you have watery eyes, try using a liquid liner on top and a crayon or gel liner on the bottom waterline. I’ve found that this IT Cosmetics Gel Liner is the best at staying on my lower lash line and in my waterline even when my eyes are watering. IT DOESN’T MOVE! So, if you prefer crayon-type liners, this is the one for you.
4.Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon
Why I Like It: This is my 2nd favorite gel eyeliner. This one acts more like an actual gel from a pot in crayon form. If you’re looking for a smooth, glide-on eyeliner that is extremely black, you’ll love this liner.
5. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil
Why I Like It: This is a great, lasting eyeliner because it comes in so many different colors. The formula is great, it will last a majority of the day with watery eyes. The real benefit of these eyeliners is the color options since there aren’t many watery-eye-proof eyeliners with so many different shades. If you’re looking for the blackest black, try the shade Perversion.
6. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner
Why I Like It: Just like its name, Stila Stay All Day really does stay all day long – even with watery eyes. When I was into wearing colorful eyeliners a lot, I really enjoyed the shade Indigo. It was a little bit different than wearing an everyday black or brown but still not so bold that people stare strangely at your eyes.
