The con­cealer pen­cil

“The per­fect touch-up so­lu­tion on the go,” ex­plains Sharon Dowsett, May­belline New York makeup di­rec­tor. “Sharpen it reg­u­larly to keep it clean.” TRY Ur­ban De­cay 24/7 Con­cealer Pen­cil (R295).

The eye­shadow pen­cil

“These are much quicker to use in a hurry than pal­ettes and brushes,” Sharon says. “Use a pen­cil for day­time, then top up from a pal­ette for your evening look.” TRY Chanel Stylo Eye­shadow in Moon River (R790).

The eye­liner pen­cil

“You get a softer fin­ish than with liq­uid liner,” says makeup artist Caro­line Barnes. “Blend kohl into an eye­shadow if you want more of a smoky ef­fect.” TRY GOSH Vel­vet Touch Eye­liner in I Sea You (R115).

The brow pen­cil

“It leaves a denser shape and stays on longer than a pen,” ex­plains Caro­line. “Draw fine, hair­like strokes for a nat­u­ral ef­fect.” TRY May­belline New York Brow Satin Smooth­ing Duo Brow Pen­cil & Fill­ing Pow­der (R109.95).

The lip pen­cil

“Ap­ply a peacht­inted balm,” Sharon ad­vises. “Then use a beige lip liner on top to cre­ate a ‘nude stock­ing’ ef­fect.” Sharpen your lip pen­cil af­ter every use to help keep it hy­gienic and free from bac­te­ria. TRY Revlon Colorstay Lip Liner in Nude (R169).

The high­light­ing pen­cil

“It’s very easy to over­ap­ply with a liq­uid, so pen­cils are best for pre­ci­sion,” ad­vises Caro­line. And it’s not just for eyes, ei­ther. “Af­ter lip­gloss, line your Cupid’s bow to make your lips look fuller.” TRY NYX Won­der Stick (R199.95).

The nail pen­cil

“This gives a groomed fin­ish,” re­veals nail ex­pert Jes­sica Hoff­man. “Soften it with a hairdryer, then run it un­der your nail from side to side.” TRY Essence Nail­white Pen­cil (R24.95).
