Black eyeliner is one of many staples that everyone needs in their makeup bag. Whether used on the inner rim, to smoke out an eye look, glam it up for the evening or wing it out, a black eyeliner can add a lot of drama to any look with just a quick step. A great black eyeliner is essential to your makeup bag, whether you prefer pencil, liquid or gel, you need at least one (or a few). I have tried hundreds of eyeliners in all of my testing and when I find a great eyeliner, I always pick up a black shade. These are the best black eyeliners I have tried.
