I was skeptical about trying this look at first because I thought it would seem like I had “forgotten” to do my bottom lashes. But, after trying it once and seeing myself in photos, I realized how much it opened up my eyes and made them appear larger. Also, lower-lid makeup can sometimes emphasize under-eye lines & dark circles (something I don’t need any help with). By keeping the focus on top lids and lashes, your eyes stand out & you look more awake. Take a peek at these celebrity examples:
1) Start by sweeping a neutral shade of shadow across your entire lid & curling your eyelashes.
2) Using a black liquid liner pen, make small dashes or dots in between your lashes. Then go back and “connect the dots” into a solid line. Remember, it’s easier to add more than it is to take away…so start small and you can make the line thicker later on, if need be.
3) Use a moistened pointy Q-tip to clean up any mistakes & ensure the line is symmetrical. You can also add a little flick up at the edges for a mini “cat-eye” effect.
4) Apply two coats of black mascara to your top lashes ONLY & keep everything else simple – a slight flush in the cheeks & a neutral lip.
