Rules of Enhancement
The secret to a gorgeous gaze? Using soft washes of color to play up the shade you were born with. See how to do it, starting with these application tips:
Draw the liner along your upper lash line, from the inner curve of your iris outward. Smooth base shadow all over your lid with a brush. Then dust the crease of your lid with the darker shadow and blend with a clean brush. “Err on the subtle side,” says Collier Strong, a makeup artist in Los Angeles. And if you prefer neutral shades, black liner and bone shadow work well on everyone.
