Sure, your lengthening mascara is a team player in your makeup game, but the MVP is undoubtedly your eyelash curler. Curl your lashes up and out for an instant eye lift it would be impossible not to notice.

Eye Shadow

Never underestimate the power of well-executed eye shadow. A darker shade in the crease gives your lids depth, while a light, shimmery color on the inner corners brightens them. Use both for the widest-looking eyes you've ever seen.


An expertly lined eye transforms your look in seconds. Go for a barely there liner to make your eyes look wider (a chisel-shaped marker is perfect for achieving the thinnest line possible). No professional experience needed.


If eyes are the windows to your soul, eyebrows are the windowsills: They are meant to frame and draw attention to the eye. Make sure your brows are always perfectly groomed with the help of a set that has everything you need in one place.
