Nailing a liquid cat-eye is the great equalizer of the beauty world. No matter how skilled you are, creating a crisp line on your upper lid that turns into the perfect flick takes a bit of practice (and can even trip up a seasoned pro from time to time). Whether you struggle with using a less forgiving form of eyeliner, or your wings have a tendency to double in size as you try to even things out, using one of the best eyeliner stamps is a game-changing solution.
If you're new to the liner stamp game and you're concerned this is just another complicated makeup trick you'll have to learn, have no fear, these babies couldn't be easier to use. Most liner stamps contain two sides — one with your classic liquid liner pen and the other with your completed wing. While you'll want to check each brand's specific instructions first, in general, they work in two simple steps. First, you take the wing stamp side of the pen, line it up with the outer corner of your lash line and press down. Then, you use the pen side to carefully connect the wing to the rest of your lash line, working from the outer corner to the center of your lid (and thinning the line out as you get closer to the inner corner).
Once you get the basics down, you can use your stamp-pen combos to create more detailed designs, like floating eyeliner along your crease, open space wings, or even reverse cat-eyes along your lower lash line. The possibilities are endless, which is the perfect excuse for buying them all, right?
To help you easily achieve any liner look — from a classic cat-eye to a graphic neon creation — here are three of the best eyeliner stamps you can buy.
