The best eyeshadow pencils

By Rebecca Gonsalves

Published 25/04/2013

Eye colour is often neglected during the daytime – not least because of the time-consuming application.

But the ease of colouring in eyelids with a crayon should be too much to resist, even for the cosmetically challenged.

Note: if you're adding a little bit of a lift to a daytime make-up look, avoid too much glitter.

With formulations that range from soft and creamy to glossy and high-impact, there's a range of shadow sticks to choose from in classic and on-trend colours. Simply draw a line – no steady hand needed – and quickly blend the colour with an eyeshadow brush before it dries.
