Tips to Make Your Eyes Pop
Try a (colorful!) smoky eye
If you fear a smoky eye is too dark and heavy, you’ll love the new take on it: jewel tones. Rich gem-colored shadows (purples, greens, blues, and golds) "look good on everyone, and they’re less harsh than grays and black," says Carissa Passerella, a makeup artist in Denver.
Here's how: Use a dense brush to deposit color on your lid, from the lash line up to your crease, using small back-and-forth strokes. Then go in with another brush and apply a slightly darker shade on the outer part of the lid, blending slightly into the crease. "Building color gradually over the lid and smudging your liner are essential," says Passerella.
