All About the Eyes

The right eye makeup can transform your entire look. Follow these steps to create an absolutely alluring eye look from lid to lash.

1. PRIMER

Using an eye primer like Cease Crease will help even out your skin tone and prevent color from fading and creasing.

2. LINER

For a softer daytime appearance, start from the inner eye and lightly trace the lash line about two thirds of the way across. Use short strokes to avoid any hard-drawn lines. For a more daring evening look, line the entire lash line, lightly smudging each stroke for a smoky, blended effect.

3. SHADOW

Tone it down during the day with pinks and neutral, earthy tones. Turn it up at night with a smoky eye. Use a bright, shimmering shade to highlight the outer and inner corners of your eyelids, blending with your eyeliner. Next, sweep a bolder, deeper shade into the crease for added depth and dimension.

4. MASCARA

Complete the look with an intensifying mascara like Triple Impact Mascara. If you have shorter lashes, try using an eyelash curler before applying mascara. (Curling afterwards can cause severe breakage.)
