I’ve been working with dark eyeliners and eyeshadows too much when I started reading about applying whites on the right places -after all, applying makeup is more on accentuating our features and bringing out our best assets. Recede the bigger areas, accentuate best features, and make the small areas pop!
To brighten up the eyes, even in a normal day, get an angled eyeshadow brush and apply a white eyeshadow ( it can be matte, or it can be shimmery, all up to you ), on the inner V of your eyelids. Monave Semi-Matte White tops my choice. The Susan Posnick Color Eyedefine in Jetblack liner-Moonstone Shadow ( the moonstone shadow’s the silvery white one! ).
To make the eyes bigger on the other hand, the inner rims of the lower eye should be tight-lined with a white eye pencil. Now, it’s a bit tricky since you have to choose a really buttery-gliding mineral eye pencil in white for this. If you don’t want to apply directly using the pencil eyeliner, get an eyeliner brush and rub the bristles to the tip of the eye pencil to get some product, and line the inner rims of the lower eyelid. A product that I’ve used is Monave’s Mineral Eye Pencil in White. Works good!
Any white eyeshadow/ pencil liner recommendations?
