To finish off this look apply a lighter color to the centre of the lid and up to the brow bone. Applying it to the corner of the eye really opens up the eye. Add a few more layers of the darker color to the lash line.

The last effect is using a cream eyeliner as a highlighter. It gives a really natural glowy look to the face. It’s also a really good idea to apply it to the underneath area of the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye. It helps to make the eyes larger and make you look wide awake. Apply the shadow stick down the bridge of the nose. It helps to reflect the light from that area giving it a really beautiful look. Other areas to target with the highlighting are above the eyebrow, chin and the cupids bow. This bold look really helps to make the eyes pop and to help frame the face.

The cream eyeliner stick should become your new best friend but just in case you need convincing or just need to see these chic and easy effects done for yourself there is a video tutorial below.
