Headed for a party? Here's how to make others steal glances at you.
Starting point: Begin by applying a light shade of concealer to the under-eye area, and all over the top lid.
Line it up: Line both the top and bottom rims using a dark colour eye pencil. If you have small eyes, apply the liner starting from the middle of the under eye to the outside of the eye. If your eyes are large, feel free to line from corner to corner.
Adding shadow: With a small eye shadow brush, soften the edges of the eye pencil line. Apply a dark shadow using a sponge-tip applicator over the penciled area and smudge. If you prefer, you can use your finger tip.
Balance it: Next, apply a shadow in a neutral tone with a larger eye shadow brush, encircling the entire eye area. Be sure to soften and graduate outward to get the perfect blended look.
Final touch: Now, put on some mascara. You can go in for transparent mascara or, if you want to make the look more dramatic, use dark colours like black, blue or brown.
