We all know that wearing black is not only chic, but it makes you appear smaller. Well, the same applies to makeup. We all love our black eyeliner, but using black eyeliner on the waterline, makes eyes appear smaller.
While our favorite CeleBeauties like Ciara get away with lining in the waterline, for everyday makeup, wear your black eyeliner under the waterline, right along your lashes. This little trick makes eyes appear larger. Be sure to use a pencil that is gentle to the eyes and has staying power.
