1- Smooth foundation evenly on clean eyelids. Follow with an eye makeup primer for color that lasts. Pat concealer a notch or two lighter than your skin tone underneath eyes to camouflage dark circles. This alone helps open up eyes. Dust translucent powder under your eye area to ensure your concealer stays in place.
2-Make sure eyebrows are groomed and shaped to frame your eyes and face. Define brows by filling them in with an eyebrow pencil or powder. This eliminates any sparse patches between hairs as well.
4- Bring more light to eyes by dabbing a flesh tone highlighter on the inner corners of eyes. Pat away any evident lines. Gently run a white eye pencil along inner rims of your lower lash lines.
5- Define eyes by working a creamy highly pigmented black pencil into lash lines. Go in between lashes. You don't want an obvious or thick line. You want just enough product to bring out the shape of your eyes. Curl eyelashes to further open eyes. Use mascara on top lashes only, making sure your application is clump-free and light. Two coats are sufficient.
Note Avoid using a dark color all over a hooded eye if your purpose is enhancement. Darkness weighs it down further.
