First, trace the upper lash line with my Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Forever Stay Eye Pencil in Deep Black using it as a stencil for the liquid. It is much easier to follow along the lashes when you have something to trace over. Next grab a black liquid liner pen like the Chanel Ecriture De Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner, as they are easier to handle then a regular liquid liner and sweep it over the pencil ending into a little wing at the outer corners. If you mess up the wing, no worries, simply grab a Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelette and fold it in half.
Now, use the corner of the towelette to clean up any edges that are smudged, and then grab a small-tipped concealer brush that has been dipped into a little foundation and clean up the area. This will create a flawless wing that makeup artists would be jealous of.
Next, sweep a hint of highlight shimmer shadow right under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes and use a taupe shadow in the crease. Finish with black mascara and a natural pinky nude cheek and lip for a fabulous fall look.
