When we do our eye makeup, the whole point is to make our eyes look better, right? It’s funny, though, because half the time, our eyes actually end up becoming red and irritated, tearing up from all of the tugging and poking. Or worse: Our perfect cat eye ends up at our chin within the first hour. Why even bother?

Before her royal wedding to Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan spilled many of her secrets to Beauty Banter, and we’re still so impressed with her picks. She described how she likes to do her eye makeup, saying, “I use Chanel Cassis Eyeliner on my upper lash line and water line, and then a touch of shimmer powder adds a brightness and sparkle.” Cassis is a gorgeous deep purple color with brown undertones and we added it to our cart at the speed of light!

This Chanel eyeliner claims to be both waterproof and smudge-proof, and hundreds of shoppers are singing its praises, noting how it goes “from day to night” without even one touch-up! “No more raccoon eyes,” one said, while another said it even stayed perfectly put after a shower! Now that’s impressive. One reviewer said this was a “‘have to have’ cosmetic” and we agree wholeheartedly!

This liner has a “gentle, soft, silicone-enriched formula” and may apply completely smooth with no tugs or scratches in sight. Even if the tip starts getting a little dull, all we need to do is detach the sharpener on the opposite end and give it a little twist! Just like new.

Speaking of twists, this eyeliner is actually retractable, so all we need to do is twist to make it appear or disappear. Retractable tips are our favorite, partially because we can’t lose the cap if there isn’t one in the first place, but also because it keeps our liner safe from dust, dirt and any accidental smushing!

This Stylo Yeux liner comes in a super wide range of shades. Cassis is obviously a go-to, but we can play even more with color with shades like Fervent Blue, Jungle Green or Eros, a dusty pink mauve. More traditional colors are also available, with shades of black, gray, brown and navy. Make sure to check them all out!

To use this eyeliner, it’s recommended that we start with “short, feathery strokes” across our lash line for a simple yet stunning look. We can also use this liner to draw a crisp cat-eye or a bolder, thicker border around our entire eye! Play around; makeup is all about having fun in the end!

We’re definitely going to grab a few different shades to start off with to totally transform our makeup routine, beginning with Cassis so we can start every day feeling like royalty. Not the worst thing to wake up to, whether we’re in a palace or not!
