Whether you love experimenting with dramatic eye makeup, or simply canâ€™t step out without lining your eyes, youâ€™ve definitely gone through your share of eye pencils and eyeliner pots. With so many options available, if thereâ€™s one thing weâ€™ve learnt, itâ€™s that not all liners are the same! We donâ€™t blame you for getting confused when it comes to picking something black and intense to make your peepers pop.
So we set things straight for you with the difference between kajal, kohl and eyeliner. From application to stay-on power, we tell you when you should use what. Your eye makeup regime is about to get so much simpler!
Kajal is mainly made with a combination of natural ingredients and soot. It is organic in nature, making it soothing for the eye; it also helps protect eyes from infections.
Kohl pencils are typically made from powders, pigments and waxes. They have the smooth glide of kajal, but they are not as messy.
Eyeliner can be found in liquid, gel or pencil form, and can be harsher on the eyes compared to kajal since it is not generally made from organic ingredients. It doesnâ€™t have as soft a texture compared to kohl and kajal, or that silky finish.
Which Is a Better Bet?
You may be thinking kajal is the best option to use, but it isnâ€™t always so. Though it can last for a very long time (for days, even), it is not very easy to apply, can be pretty messy and should generally be applied inside your lower lashes. A kohl pencil is great for its soft smoothness and easy maneuverability, but it can also be prone to smudging. Whereas an eyeliner is perfect for well-defined cat eyes and dramatic flicks â€“ it is a good option for a neat and striking effect.
What You Need for Everyday Eyes
You donâ€™t need to look too made up during the day; hence most of us mainly use kajal and lip gloss as our daily go-to. When we say kajal, though, we generally mean a kohl pencil on our lower lash line as actual kajal has a knack of spreading and creating that panda-esque effect.
The Verdict: An intensely black kohl pencil is perfect for a little bit of fuss-free magic in our daily lives. If you like to line your upper lids often, then a gel liner is great for a smudge-free line that isnâ€™t too thick.
What You Need for Dramatic Winged Eyes
If you want to up the ante with a dazzling cat eye, then liquid eyeliners are your best bet once you develop a steady hand. If you arenâ€™t very confident about your flick-drawing skills, then you can experiment with a kohl pencil â€“ but it wonâ€™t give you the extremely sharp and perfect lines that you want.
The Verdict: Have a liquid eyeliner handy for those nights when you want to grab attention.
What You Need for Sultry Smoky Eyes
To channel a sexy stunner, you need to use something that is easily blendable, which means that liquid or gel eyeliners are simply out of the question. A velvety kajal liner or a kohl pencil is ideal to smudge away with the tip of your finger for a stunning smoky-eye effect.
The Verdict: A kajal liner is perfect for when you want to flaunt some look-at-me charm.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
