Here’s the run down on nine of the best eye products from the InStyle Best Beauty Buys awards that will help you achieve the perfect smoky eye, feminine feline flicks, boy brows and a fuller flutter. Take note.
Best powder eyeshadow
These 12 neutral hues can be used to add dimension to your eyes, brows and cheeks. “This palette is my daily go-to – light shades for work, deeper ones for evening,” says InStyle's Editor, Emily Taylor.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. We’re yet to find a makeup artist who isn’t a fan of this product. It first launched in 1971, and has been a best seller ever since, thanks to its small, easy-to-wield brush that coats hard to reach lashes.
Best liquid eyeliner
Charlotte Tilbury The Feline Flick. This is the finest felt tip on the market, declares May, describing its pigment “as rich as gel.” A calligraphy-style brush guarantees a precise application.
Best waterproof mascara
Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Clis Waterproof. The short bristles allow for a defined, yet voluminous finish. Better still, the waterproof formula won’t dry out lashes.
Best cream eyeshadow
Bobbi Brown Long-wear Cream Shadow. Available in 14 shades, this cream shadow glides on effortlessly and doesn’t leave a chalky residue. “I also use it under powder eye shadow for a crease-free finish,” says Makeup Artist, Charlie Kielty.
Estée Lauder Little Black Primer. “This boosts lash volume, dialling up the drama on my eye make I also wear it on its own for a natural look,” says InStyle's Beauty Director, Hayley D’Onofrio.
