10 Best Waterproof Eyeliners You Should Grab From Nykaa

The most evergreen beauty snag in vanities across, is inarguably eyeliner. And rightly so! This formulation wields the immense power to transform a look, from nay to yay in a split second. No matter the rendition you are opting for, a barely-there look with a soft touch on the waterline or sharp, neat lines in fishtail liner—it is bound to enhance your gaze by X100! All you need is a trained movement of the hand to add incredible depth and dimension with a smidge of drama to your beautiful eyes.

Now, there is no scarcity of eyeliner formulations in the market, however, you must weigh your options before committing to that one product. We propose testing the offering against a gamut of parameters— such as staying power, finish, format, pigmentation and most importantly, water resistance. Your eyeliner shouldn’t smear with sweat or water to create deep, darkened hollows (often creating the illusion of under-eye bags). To help you circumvent this problem, we are bringing you a list of the ten best eyeliners on Nykaa. But before we jump to this cheatsheet, let's pause for a brief section on different types of eyeliners.

Which Type Of Eyeliner Should You Opt For?

The eyeliner has come a long way vis-a-vis the evolution and is now available in different formats. If you are a pro at sketching sharp lines, then go for the classic liquid eyeliner. The intense pigmentation and staying power of this concoction remain uncontested. However, for people who lack confidence using a liquid variety but fancy a similar colour saturation– the pen variety is a fitting choice. This offering bestows you with the precision of a twist-up but the intensity of a liquid eyeliner! Win-Win! For beauty novices or beginners, we would recommend going for a pencil eyeliner. This format helps you crack different eye looks in the same capacity (as a pen liner) till you are confident enough to graduate to the liquid variety. Alternatively, gel formulations are known for their versatility, used by pros for creating an array of looks.
