Try the perfect blend eyeliner from Cover Girl. The classic liner with blending power. For a defined look, draw a precise line; for a smoky look, softly smudge with the plush blender tip.

Open your eyes

Choose a mascara that can thick, curve and lenght all in one.

If you have round eyes, apply mascara only on your upper lashes.

Experience the new Voluminous False Fiber Lash by L'Oreal fto give you an outrageous, false lash look! To open your eyes, wiggle the mascara wand left to right at the base of your lashes. Mascara that is placed near the roots of the lash provides the greatest amount of “length”. Then pull the mascara wand through your lashes, “wiggling” it a little as you go. This wiggling motion is important — it acts to separate your lashes.

Don't forget your eyebrow

If you need to correct the line, fill-in brows with eyebrow pencil using thin, hair-like strokes.
Step 2: Blend color and groom brows with comb.
