How do I make my eyeliner look more natural?

Bobbi: Stay away from harsh black and go for dark brown, which looks pretty on everyone. I also suggest lining with an eye shadow because it creates a softer look than a gel liner or pencil. MAC Satin Eye Shadow in Mystery and Angled Brush #266 ($15 and $20; maccosmetics.com) would work. Dampen a small liner brush with water, dip it in a dark-brown shadow and use it to trace along your top and bottom lash lines, as close to the lashes as possible. If it’s still too much for you, just do the top lash line.
