The Best Eyeliner Isnt Actually Eyeliner (But It *Is* in Your Makeup Bag)

No offense to eyeliner, but sometimes the sheer volume of pencils, pomades and felt-tips in our makeup kit can be a little overwhelming. So yeah, we’re always looking for ways to streamline our beauty routine, and Jessica Alba’s makeup artist, Daniel Martin, may have just saved us another sliver of space. Bless you, Daniel.

Instead of creating a cat eye with a traditional liner, he suggests dipping a small angled brush into a tube of mascara and using the lush pigment to draw a sharp line. Mascara is naturally more opaque and slightly thicker than most eyeliners, making it stick to lids better and stay put for the long haul.
