The Two-Toned Eye

Here's a simple way to change up your eye makeup: try alternating colored liners on top & bottom.  It adds more dimension to your look, but in a subtle way.  I also love that you can choose whatever colors you have on hand or prefer.  Take a look at these two different examples on Emmy Rossum & Joanna Garcia:

As you can see, Emmy has a peach/shimmery gray combo (perfect for daytime) while Joanna's is a more sultry charcoal/plum mix (great for a night-out).  Here is the close-up shot for a more detailed view:

To recreate this look, just blend well into the upper & lower lash lines (and don't forget the inner rims, too) - you can either use an eyeshadow with a pointed applicator or an eyeliner pencil.  Apply mascara to complete the look & you're done!  Here's some color combinations that are perfect for fall & products to try:

Alysson - sorry to hear that! You could try Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Eye Liner (it's specifically designed for contact lens wearers & those with sensitive eyes).
