Eyeliner is a multipurpose product: it can thicken the lash line and enhance the shape of the eye. It can also bring attention to the eye area and strengthen your eye makeup look, whether you keep it simple or experiment with colors and finishes. A timeless icon, the winged cat-eye is like the classic black leather jacket of eye looks at Urban Decay, so we recommend 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion (especially for beginners) or Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Pen if you prefer a liquid liner and brush-tip. If you're curious how our different eye pencils can fit into your look check out our Virtual Try-On.
What type of eyeliner should I use?
The type of eyeliner you're using is totally up to you—we recommend the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil for beginners, since it goes on super-creamy and is very forgiving. It makes for a worry-free application because you can easily clean up mistakes and adjust before it dries with a waterproof finish. Plus, it comes in an insane range of colors and finishes.
Why is eyeliner attractive?
It can really accentuate the shape of the eye and draw attention to the eye area. We love experimenting and are constantly reinventing our look on a daily basis. You should play with eyeliner colors and looks to see what you like! Wear what you like—there are no rules. While eyeliner works wonders as a standalone eye makeup product, when combined with your favorite eyeshadow, mascara and/or brow makeup it can give your eye look a completely different depth.

Should you wear eyeliner on the bottom lash line?
It depends on the look you're trying to achieve. Wearing eyeliner on the bottom lash line when you have large eyes can make your eyes look smaller. If you have hooded eyes (meaning eyeliner on the upper lash line won’t always show up), then eyeliner on the lower lash line can accentuate the eye. Don't get caught off guard and make sure to keep your eye pencils sharp with our Grindhouse Double Barrel Sharpener so you can line your bottom lash line more precisely.
