Black eyeliner can be a bit jarring during the day sometimes. Especially for those with light hair or fair skin. But black eyeliner also gives the most definition to the eyes! What’s a girl to do?! Here’s a fool-proof way to make sure your eyes are nicely defined but not over done during the day!
Who doesn’t want bigger looking eyes? Unfortunately a lot of women don’t apply eyeliner correctly, making their eyes appear smaller than they really are.

Been up all night? Then it’s probably time to break out the concealer! Trust us, if you use it correctly, no one will notice that you didn’t get a wink of sleep.

However, I do need to use a concealer to even out color. Many people struggle to cover bags up, but you just need to follow these steps and you’ll be saying “goodbye” to those dark pesky circles forever!
Today I am going to be showing you how to get a sexy sultry smokey eye. I was inspired by Jennifer Love Hewitt who defines sexiness and is known for her sultry smokey eyes.

Big, thick brows are definitely “in” right now. Have you seen supermodel Cara Delevingne’s?!

Colored shadows can be tricky to work with, but you can’t go wrong with shades of brown and copper since it works well with practically every skin tone and eye color. Browns are great for everyday wear since the natural shadows of your lids are a brownish red. Eyes are the first thing people notice; make them clean, defined, beautiful and not too distracting. You want people to notice you, not your heavy makeup so here’s a way to give your eyes that bit of pop it needs without being overdone. This is a great basic everyday look that can be changed up easily and worn for any occasion.
Step 1: Start with clean eyes and apply primer all over the lid up to your brow bone. Elf Primer is a great alternative to Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. For only 1 dollar compared to a 20 dollar primer, it’s a must have.
