1. NYX Curve Eyeliner

"The genius shape makes it easy to hold and very literally mistake-proof. I'm liquid eyeliner-deficient, so I'm being totally serious when I say this product is god-sent." -Hallie Gould, Social Editor ($15, nordstrom.com)

2. Ardency Inn Punker Eyeliner

"Despite feeling badass using this edgy eye Sharpie, the color is the deepest black, and always goes on seamlessly. It's a little attitude added to your everyday eye routine. Plus it's small! -Deanne Kaczerski, Digital Director ($25.51, amazon.com)

3. M·A·C Penultimate Eye Liner

"The best part about this liner is you can manipulate the thickness of the line it makes with a quick flick of the wrist. So when I've been listening to one too many Sonic Youth records, I can go as thick as my little black heart desires." -HG ($19.50; maccosmetics.com)

4. Lancôme Artliner

"This is my go-to eyeliner for any fancy event. It's like adding a line of silk to my eyes... AND it washes off without any trace. No offense, raccoons." -DK ($30.50, lancome-usa.com)

5. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

"If Alexa Chung reccommends it, I'm using it no questions asked. Once I tried it, I realized it's perfect for a barely-there eye look with a deep, dark lip." -HG ($16, sephora.com)
