The Eye Contour
Look more awake with this makeup hack.
Contouring your cheeks can help define your face, but contouring your eyes will make them look bigger and more awake. To nail this look, start with a wash of neutral eyeshadow all over the lids. Just as you would with your cheeks, blend a deeper, preferably matte, shade into the sockets of your eyes – just under where you feel you brow bone. Curl your lashes and add mascara as the finishing touch.
