We just cannot do without our black eyeliners, can we? Take away all the eyeshadows, blushes, and other makeup products, but you’ll have to pry my favorite black eyeliner from my cold dead hands! Okay, so, I am exaggerating a little, but really no makeup can ever be complete without the classic black eyeliner.
But how do you pick the best liquid black eyeliner? There are so many of them out there! Well, for one, you can use this list as a guiding post!
