You know what they say: Eyes are the windows to the soul, and as such, they can be one of the most captivating parts of your face. Thus, the role of makeup should be to enhance your eyes and give them definition and impact — not take away from their power.
Eyeliner, specifically, can really perk up your peepers when wielded properly. But, on the flip side, it can also really drag down your makeup look when used incorrectly. Here are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind before you grab that eye pencil or liquid liner.
Do choose the right color
If you’re stuck on black eyeliner only, then you’re missing out on a range of hues that can really boost your eye color. For example, a brown shade is a less harsh option that creates a softer, more subtle effect. A deep, jewel-toned eyeliner such as an emerald green or sapphire blue can work wonders to bring out the color of your eyes whereas a white or nude eyeliner on the lower lid works to brighten the eye, creating a refreshed, awake appearance.
