Not only long eyelashes are able to emphasisze the beauty of our eyes. Arrows of different shapes and colours are best suited to add additional effects and enhance the depth of our look. An eyeliner or pencil and a couple of skilful strokes can completely change your look, add mystery or playfulness to your look, and even visually correct the shape of your eyes.
Eye pencils are products that directly add to the glamorous share of your make-up. At Alyaka, we know for sure that finding the one that best suits your skin as tricky as discovering the right pair of denims that fit you ideally! Several factors should be considered before selecting an eye pencil. It must be:
- safe and unharmful
- comfortable to put on
- and perhaps water-resistant (if you’re going for that sexy beach look)
When you do finally find a product that works best for you, it’s better to stick with it. The skin on your eyelids is sensitive, and it’s essential to take good care of it.

Now that we’ve discovered this year’s best 5 natural and organic outliners let’s take a more in-depth look at how they can affect our delicate skin.
How Eyeliner Can Affect Our Sensitive Eyes and Eyelids
While we love how spectacular eyeliners look, people with delicate eyes can suffer from them. Chances are, non-organic and artificial-ingredient liners will irritate your eyes and damage your eyesight. Since it is applied just above your eyelid, it can slide into your eye quite easily, especially if it is not smudge-proof. This can cause discomfort, irritation, and itching to sensitive eyes. Hence, you must include products that ensure a good colouration yet are skin-friendly.
People who wear contact lenses should be particularly careful with the selection and application of eyeliners. They usually contain oils and wax, which are difficult to remove from the surface of optical products and, if accumulated, can cause irritation, redness, and inflammation. Also, along with cosmetic particles, pathogenic microbes can enter the lenses, which lead to various eye infections, fraught with a decrease in visual acuity or blurred vision.
Cosmetic liners are (liquid) pencils, with which the so-called arrows are usually drawn on the eyes. Scientists have found that the use of liquid eyeliners can be hazardous and negatively affect the eyes’ health. Researchers studied options for applying eyeliner to the lash line’s inner and outer sides and then compared the number of cosmetic particles that got into the eyes.
The experiment results showed that, regardless of which side of the eyelash line was applied, its components invariably penetrated the tear film. But in the case when the eyes were painted from the inside, 15-30% more particles got into the eyes, so the rate of their penetration was higher. We can conclude that it is absolutely necessary to use natural and organic eye products only!
The Perfect Line
Eyeliner puts your eyes in the spotlight, literally and figuratively. But it often seems like a hopeless and unsuccessful make-up job. Fortunately, with these six easy tricks, you too will soon shine and show off a professional look!
Step 1: Put your elbow on the table so that you have a steady hand. Stretch your skin a little.
Step 2: Draw an eyeliner line on your top lash line, but stay away from the corners. Put small lines if necessary.
Step 3: Now draw a wafer-thin line from your inner corner of the eye and connect it with the line you just made.
Step 4: Now, it gets a little more complicated. The “wing,” or the outer part of your eyeliner, starts on the imaginary line between the outer corner of your eye and the end of your eyebrow. The higher you go on this line, the more dramatic your look is. Place a business card against your cheek to determine the boundary.
Step 5: First, put a dot to where you want to put the eyeliner. Now connect this with the line that is already there, from the outside to the inside.
Step 6: If necessary, fill in some more and make the “wing” thicker.
