MAKE YOUR LASHES LOOK THICKER
TIP: Gently lift your lid and wiggle a super-slim precision pencil between fringe to create the illusion of full, lush lashes. “When using gel liner, make sure you remove any dried product at the tip before applying. This liner is perfect for very detailed techniques and is incredible for tightlining your eye for the most natural look,” says Sephora PRO Artist Erik Soto.

ENHANCE YOUR EYE COLOR
TIP: Make any eye color sparkle with a swipe of complementary liner: Brown eyes are amped up with navy and hazel tones, green eyes glimmer with purple and deep plum hues, and blue eyes intensify with plush brown shades. “When using these liners, work one eye at a time,” says Soto. “This will ensure you have enough time to blend, plus you can also use in conjunction with an eyeliner brush to create detailed looks.”

RECREATE RETRO DEFINITION
TIP: Dash a gel liner pen along your lash lines to effortlessly craft an even line, then extend the pencil outward into a classic cat eye for a timeless look. “The key with using this new gel liner is making sure you prep the pencil before each use,” says Soto. “Once you have removed any dry product from the tip, one click of product is all you should need for each eye to create the most effortless winged liner.”

MAKE YOUR SHADOW STICK
TIP: Lay down a foundation of long-wearing liner over the lids, and then layer on matching shadow (or a similar shade for a pop of dimensional color) to help shadow stay put from dawn to dusk. “This pencil is ideal for more diffused looks because of its shape,” says Soto. “It’s a nice, soft texture to get close to the eye.”
