These let you get a clean, precise line thanks to the thicker formula and the precision  brush. Gel eyeliners typically have a creamy consistency that is easier to work with. The few tiny downsides of it are that they are a little difficult to maintain since they tend to dry out faster. They can be a little pricier! As well as it needs some maintenance when it comes to hygiene of the brush since it can give you infections!!

Precision is one word that defines this type of eyeliner that creates clean lines, and is perfect for flicks needed.

Draw the shape you want with the marker like a pen, then fill it in. Simple!

I personally feel this is good for beginners. Good quality branded marker pen styles are expensive but saves you a lot of time.

Similar to gel eyeliners if you forget to put the cap back on then the marker pen will dry out and cannot be brought back to life anyhow 🙁

Liquid Eyeliners

This comes in a nail color like bottle, a little old fashioned! This has an applicator brush inside that you will use. Now this typically is easier on your pocket but hard to apply, there will be times (if you are a novice) when you will hate the liquid eyeliners simply because they are too ‘messy’. 

There is little to no maintenance issue with these types. 

You can use it extensively till the bottle is finished or the expiry arrives (whichever happens sooner)
