This gel eyeliner was previously mostly used by professional makeup artists but now it is becoming more common than ever before. Angled brush or even pencil eyeliner is used to get the eyeliner cream out of the pot that it comes in. Gel eyeliner can even be used as a creamy base underneath eyeshadow. Gel liners are generally used to give a lady more of a glam look. It is water-resistant and the structure it gives you more control over the line thickness.

While applying gel eyeliner by brush, you will be needing a slightly steady hand as it is creamy and glides very smoothly.


  • It is very creamy and the easiest to smudge.
  • Gel eyeliner is perfect for getting a smoky eyes look.


  • It is not as portable as pencil eyeliner.

Liquid eyeliner is famous for being one of the most difficult eyeliners to use. The application of liquid eyeliners needs a steady and precise hand.

Even though liquid eyeliner is really good when you put it on, we would not recommend it if you are starting off your eyeliner journey. Start with something that is not so hard to apply, get your hands used to the movements eyeliner needs, and then try out liquid eyeliners.


  • Liquid eyeliners are perfect for Arabic makeup and the cat-eye look. It gives you the dramatic effect to your eyes that would make you look mysterious and sexy.
  • Liquid eyeliners give you a very well-defined thin line. This helps you make your eyelashes look thicker.


  • Cons of liquid eyeliners include, as we have already discussed, being hard to apply. It needs a steady and experienced hand to apply this eyeliner perfectly, and, of course, patience.
  • Other than that, you’re good to go.
