Must-Try Eye Makeup

James T Murray

Blink and you might miss them.

When it comes to eye makeup, pencils and mascara are continuously being reformulated in search of staying power and a natural look. Our latest obsessions are Guerlain’s Voilette de Madame retractable (no sharpener needed!) permanent (water-resistant) eye pencil ($30; neimanmarcus.com); Hourglass’s Arch brow sculpting pencil with its twist-up, triangular-shaped tip that helps you draw a perfect line ($32; hourglasscosmetics.com); and Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll ($30; yslbeautyus.com), which defines every last lash without clumping. Top the lid with Japonesque high-pigment shadows (from $20; ulta.com) inspired by Kabuki makeup tools.
