From crying sessions to swimming pool adventures, here are 17 smudge-proof eyeliners that will last


As summer approaches, finding the right eyeliner product that won’t budge can be a hard challenge, especially since some formulas tend to run and fade faster than they actually go on. However, the trick is to stick with the right kind of waterproof products, as liquid liners, in particular, offer the most long-wear benefits you’ll totally love.

“Gel liners are smoother and easy to apply, but they don’t last as long, making it wise to invest in a liquid product,” celebrity makeup artist Hector Simancas told HelloGiggles. He said,

“Liquid formulas are usually easy to apply, and usually last the longest. On the other hand, pencil products are best suited for blending your looks together.

To part ways with the smearing liners that don’t work, we’ve rounded up 17 eyeliners that stay on basically forever. And if you don’t exactly prefer the basic brown or black liner shades, we’ve got lots of colorful liners that won’t budge.
