I get a lot of emails from women who have a hard time with eyeliner. They want an eyeliner that doesn’t smudge and lasts all day. My answer is try a gel eyeliner.
I recently started using L’oreal Infallible Gel Liner and I love it! It lasts all day without smudging. Gel eyeliner takes a little practice and it’s not as forgiving as an eye pencil. But once you get the hang of it, I think you’ll love it.
I had written about gel eyeliner last year and listed these pros and cons.
- Gel eyeliner produces neat line
- You can control thickness of lines
- It glides on smoothly and does not tug on skin
- Gel eyeliner is long lasting and doesn’t smudge
- It dries quickly so any mistakes have to be fixed quick (I have a cutip close by in case I need it)
- Takes a few times getting use to using a brush to apply eyeliner
When applying gel eyeliner dip the brush into your gel and scrape it on the sides of the container a couple times. It’s always easier to work with a small amount and then add more later.
Close your eye and gently pull your lid taut with your finger. Place your brush right on top of the roots of your lashes. Use small strokes and make sure when you get to the outer corner you sweep up slightly.
Have you tried gel eyeliner? Do you have a favorite one?

Beauty For the Heart~~Galatians 2:20 is one of my favorite verses. I sometimes like to read from different versions of the Bible. This is Galatians 2:20 from The Message.
What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that.
