The Best Natural and Non-Toxic Eyeliners

November 4, 2019

Ohhh eyeliner. You can be tricky but you can also totally transform the eye. To be honest, I don’t wear eyeliner on the daily but after testing out five eyeliners for a week, maybe I should?! I realized how little natural eyeliner it takes to make my eyes pop and how quickly throws together a look. Is it just me or is eyeliner one of the trickier makeup skills to master? It took me years! So today  I’m sharing my application and removal tips as well as my favorite non-toxic eyeliners!

How to Apply Eyeliner (+ Fix Mistakes)

First things first, if you’re using a pencil eyeliner, make sure it’s sharp! You don’t want to apply with a dull/flattened pencil. Second, go slow! There’s no rush when it comes to applying your eyeliner. Go slowly and apply in small strokes for the most even application.

Besides those two tips, there are different ways to apply eyeliner. I typically just create a line above my eyelashes for a bolder look but if you’re new to eyeliner or don’t love the bold look, you can also line closer to the waterline – almost in between your eyelashes.

If you happen to make a mistake, don’t stress! A Q-Tip will be your BFF. I recommend starting with a dry Q-Tip but if that’s not working, you can use a little make-up remover, face oil or face lotion on the Q-Tip to really remove product.

How to Remove Eyeliner

If you feel like every time you wear eye makeup, it looks like you have it on for days, you’re not alone! My go-to makeup remover is the Trilogy Makeup Be Gone Cleansing Balm. This balm gets every last drop of makeup off my face, eyes included! Warm a small amount in your hand and gently massage around your eye area and then the rest of your face. Remove with a warm washcloth.

    Hello, I appreciate this review as I’ve been trying to find a natural eye liner that stays in place better than my 100% Pure pencil does. Their liquid eye liner burns my skin, and I don’t like the shimmer that is in the brown liquid one. How does the Juice Beauty one compare?
