‘Pizza-cutter’ and ‘roller-ball’ eyeliners are the answer to your tube makeup woes. The disc-like applicator makes it impossible to sway off course, even with the unsteadiest of hands. We love the one from Nudestix, which also come in a bronze and ‘golden rosé’ shade – an ideal switch up from your classic black for the party season (and for less detectable mistakes).
Kate Moss is already a major fan of this luxury Japanese beauty label and it’s little wonder why. This highly pigmented pen has the ability to create a thin outline or a bold, buildable flick with equal ease. Plus, it’s refillable for sustainability.
Charlotte Tilbury is known for her cat-eye liner and this product doesn’t disappoint. The tip is fine enough to offer pinpoint precision and the formula glides on without snagging.

Eye Defining Pen, £46, Tom Ford
Tom Ford’s incredible double-ended liner pen is worth every pen. With two different sized nibs to work with, you have the option of creating elegant, thin, winged feline flicks or full-on cat eyes.

If that’s not enough, the pigment is perfectly opaque and doesn’t budge come rain or shine.
