It’s a lot easier than you think!
Defining your crease and your lashes are really the secrets to bringing out the contour of your eye.
- Sweep a medium-toned brown shadow over the crease.
- The next best thing you can do for your eyes is to enhance the look of your lashes, and filling in the gaps between your lashes can really help them appear more full and thick. To keep it natural, take a dark brown eyeshadow and trace closely along your upper and lower lashlines, and smudge.
- Lastly, curl your lashes and sweep a dark brown mascara over the lashes to enhance thickness and length.
