How to Make Eyes Looking Brighter


A little while ago, I learned a tip from a makeup artist and found this to be quite useful to brighten up my eyes. I thought to share this after several gal pals asked me about this particular bright eye trick. They are all quite happy with the result. I am using a silver/white pencil to achieve my look but a gal can also use a dab of powder at the corner to brighten up the eyes. However, I find pencil easier to apply and last longer than powder. Before I explained my little tip, gal pals commented my eyes always looked bright but how? Now they know. I hope this will help you with all the holiday parties? Have you tried this before?

*Answer to yesterday's question: Ostrich Leg Leather. Who knew, right?!

  5. I use the Sephora smokey eyes kit and they recommend that you use a silvery color on the inner eye and I love it!

  6. I did think of Ostrich but not the leg bit - that is how it looked so unusual and almost reptile like - very clever!

  26. I do! I haven't tried with a pencil yet - as per your advice, I may pick one up some day - but when I'm doing full makeup for dressier events, I'll usually dab a tiny bit of shimmery white powder eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eye. I also picked up a tip from Carmindy, the lady who does the makeup portion on What Not to Wear - taking a small but fluffy eyeshadow brush and sweeping a tiny bit of white powder along my brow bone.
