Since the days of Cleopatra, women have been accentuating their eyes with liner—and by the looks of it, that trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon. The good news: The liner has gotten better and there’s mascara to boot. Our current go-to combo: Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara and Little Black Liner.

Not only is the formula better than what they had in ancient Egypt—Little Black Liner is waterproof, smudge-proof and flake-proof—it also allows you to create three different finishes with a single tube. The slim tip is ideal for precise, ultra-fine lines while the opposite end houses a flat wedge tip for stronger styles. Flip the wedge on its side for a bold, thick line.

And of course no bold eye is complete without mascara—Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara to be exact. Swipe on a few coats to quickly amp up fullness (thanks to lash-thickening fibers) and add major volume without weighing down your lashes.

Pair your bold eyes with a neutral lip to let the eyes have it, or pop on a classic red to really make a statement. Either way we’re going to bet that Cleopatra would approve.
