Presenting the dual-ended liquid liner that adds twice the intensity to eyes.
Written By Jayme Cyk

While on set for The Violet Files’ shoot with Miss Golden Globe 2016 Corinne Foxx, makeup artist Monika Blunder created the ultimate smoky eye for the model of the moment. Her tool of choice? Tom Ford’s Eye Defining Pen, a dual-sided liquid liner containing a fine calligraphy tip on one side and a thicker brush on the other. Blunder also loves the pen for its rich pigment and precise design, which delivers smooth applications and perfect dramatic flourishes.


ON SET: Provides a seductive stare for a photo shoot that’s all about the eyes.

ON THE RED CARPET: Creates a jet black cat eye that stands out in a crowd. 

ON THE VANITY: The precision calligraphy tip gives the illusion of longer, thicker lashes.


“I love how this pen gives a rich, dense black pigment.”—Monika Blunder, makeup artist
