I love when I find out about little makeup tricks that take hardly any time at all to apply and yet can make a big impact on your overall look. I certainly struggle with finding ways to make my eyes look wider and brighter (otherwise I sort of have that sleepy-all-day look about me). One quick little fix you can use is to line the bottom of your eye with a white eyeliner (I use this one) to really make your eyes pop!
Actually, the white liner on the bottom look was kind of a 60s makeup staple too (see Diana Ross rocking it above), so you know I’m especially up for anything that gets the 60s glam stamp of approval.
All you have to do is trace a creamy white liner on the lower waterline (the inside edge of your lower lash line), and your eyes look brighter in seconds! I usually pull down gently on the top of my cheekbone to make the waterline a bit easier to access while I apply the liner with the other hand.
See? It just makes the eyes pop a bit and helps them look fresher and more open. If you wear mascara on your lower lashes (also a big 60s thing), just make sure to apply the liner first and then your mascara. This trick will only add seconds to your makeup routine but will make all the difference – give it a try and see if you agree! xo. Laura
