E is For...Eye-(Catching) Liner
Talk about the holiday blues! Lining your eyes in a cool marine shade is a faster, easier alternative to a smoky look but makes an equally dramatic impact. For a vibrant cat eye, pull the skin at your temples taut and paint a line from your eye’s inner corner to just beyond its edge using short dashlike strokes. Fill in and straighten the line, and flick it up at the outer corner for extra sass.
