Step 3: Line the eyes

Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner corner to the outer corner. Liners help make your eyes pop and if you blend correctly, it won’t be obvious.

Eyeshadow is great because it covers up veins in your lids and it will help to make your eyes pop. Start with a light color that almost matches your lid.

Put light eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eye. Dab a finger into the lightest eye shadow and then press it into the inner corner of the eye where the upper lid meets the bottom lid.
