Put some shimmer in the right spots for a sophisticated effect that lets you sparkle and bring out your natural glow.
The secret: Apply your all over shimmer foundation, or if you want to use a luminizing lotion or cream apply the subtle sheen in three areas: the tops of your cheekbones, just under your brows, and on the inner corners of your eyes.
Make Your Eyes Pop with Liquid Liner
Enhance your eyes with an easy swipe of liquid liner. Gaze downward into a mirror and hold the skin at the outer corner of your eye taut so your lid is stretched into a straight line. Apply a regular black pencil, right along the lash line, from your inner corner just to the outer corner. “This creates a stencil to trace and fills in gaps between lash hairs,” make-up artist Carmindy explains.
Next, trace the line with liquid liner, extending it about 1/4 inch past the outer corner of your eye with a slight upward tick, which gives eyes a lifted look. It is recommended that you use a pen version of liquid liner for beginners.
Sheer, creamy formulas leave a soft wash of color, and they swipe on in seconds—you don’t even need a brush. Just use your ring finger to dab the shadow onto the center of your lids, then blend it out toward the corners.
