This fall the new beauty must-have is eyeliner. You will want a few different colours and you will want textured eyeliners to wear different ways. Eyeliner looks seen on the runways for spring ran the gamut from classic winged and cats-eye looks to smoky-eyed liner and pastel liner.

These eyeliners are new and unique, and have never been easier to work with. The pencils really stay put because of the gel in them. You have about five minutes to smear and adjust them as they dry. Pen-type liquid liners are easier to apply, too, and stay on longer. Keep a pack of swabs handy, as the pros do, to clean up your work. And instead of black, try a liner in dark shimmery mink, deep plum, or navy for a softer, more interesting look.

If pencil or liquid looks too harsh too you try lining your eyes with eye shadow.  Use powder shadow in a smoke or slate shade  and  small tapered brush.
