Pencil eyeliner is one of the easiest eyeliners to buy and use. They glide onto your eyelid relatively easily and blend quite well. They are a perfect choice for everyday use. There are several types of pencil liners the wooden kohl, automatic, mechanical and felt tip pencils. The automatic, felt tip and mechanical pencils are good to use as they are always sharp. The lines are always precise so you will need to be careful as these may look too severe on certain eye shapes. Kohl pencil eyeliners tend to be softer and fatter than other eyeliners and have more of a powdery consistency. They smudge a lot more easily, this makes then ideal to use for creating softer looking eyeliner or a smoky look.
