HIGHLIGHTING THE INNER CORNERS OF THE EYES

This is not an unknown beauty trick.  I've just never tried it before.  But today, I'm very brave!

I heard that adding a little highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes can really widen and brighten.  So I gave it a try.

Here is my eye makeup before highlighting the inner corners of my eyes:



Here is my eye makeup after highlighting the inner corners of my eyes:




In my opinion, it worked.  But for everyday or office wear, I don't really think I'll use the highlighter.  It's too glamorous.  For night time though, I'd really like to repeat this look.

BTW, I used Sephora Collection Nano Eyeliner in "Pearl Beige".
I love this liner!

  3. I do this too! It definately pops your eyes out! But only good for going out! Very helpful tip if you're going out straight after work! Just carry a white liner and you're off ^^

  4. I have both the black and white eyeliner from that brand, and I love both. They are very easy to glide on without hurting my skin.

  11. I like to highlight the inner corner of my eye when I go out, but like you said, I don't think it's really suitable for an everyday look unless it's toned down.

  17. awesome post. Try adding the highlight color on the inner corner where you can almost touch the side of your nose but not to much..if that makes any sense lol. you'll see more difference.
