When we were kids, we’re taught to always color inside the lines, a task that I usually failed at. The good news was, my ability to be creative and color outside the lines totally paid off in makeup application. Granted when it comes to liquid liner, my hand is anything but steady, but that’s exactly why I succeed in applying eyeshadow. Even if color extends outside the crease, as long you blend, it’s still a masterpiece.
Lately, I’ve been spotting tons of eye pencils that double as eyeshadow sticks and here’s why they’re perfect for the holiday season: instant color, easy application, portability, and you won’t spend any extra time dealing with excess shadow on your lower lash line. I’ve rounded up a handful of eyeshadow pencils including a couple of my tried and true favorites (NARS and Make Up For Ever). Whether you’re looking for a double duty liner and shadow or some sparkle for your eyes, all of these options offer exactly what you want for just the right price. Finally, some crayons for grown-ups!
