Perfect Pairs: Eyeliner & mascara combos that suit your style

Our eyes are a window to our souls, or so the saying goes. And with the right eyeliner and mascara, you can express your (inner) self with a few swipes and flicks. Read on for our perfectly paired eyeliner and mascara combos that best suit you.

Natural & Easy

For those days when you want to keep it low-key and don't necessarily want to look like you're wearing eyeliner, use an eye pencil to draw in a soft line close to your lashes and apply one coat of mascara to subtly enhance your eyes.

Edgy & Graphic

A boldly lined eye makes a statement and more so when teamed with pared back makeup. Achieve the look with a gel liner applied with a good angled brush and finished with a few coats of lengthening mascara.

Clean & Precise

Whether you're after a feline flick or a flourish or two, liquid eyeliner is your best bet to avoid blurred lines. Apply with a steady hand and select one with a calligraphy pen-like nib. Finish with a mascara that provides equal definition to your lashes.

Smoky & Dramatic

No longer just for nighttime mischief, the smoky eye can be worn anytime you want dramatic effect. Intensify your gaze with a kajal liner which glides on creamily and smears nicely, then follow up with a volumising mascara to complete your look.
