Eye Opening Tricks

It's a basic tenant of Beauty 101 — for an instant pick-me-up, there's nothing better than an eyelash curler and a swipe of mascara. Here are some of our other favorite ways to make your eyes pop, from brows to lashes.

Brush up those Brows

Well-groomed brows completely open up your face. Watch our video with Boston brow expert Lauren Genatassio to learn how to get the perfect shape for your face — whether you're plucking them yourself or having them professionally waxed. Don't forget the brow gel!

Pop of Color

We've always said taupe is one of our favorite colors, and in the case of makeup, neutral eyeshadow never goes out of style. Since that's the case, why not try on this season's runway trend, super saturated eyeshadows? These rich pigments add instant flair and make your eyecolor pop. Read our guide or watch our video to learn how to rock the look.

Get in Line

If you never wear liner, or just save it for special occasions, you're missing out on the easiest way to add definition to eyes. Makeup artist Diane da Silva demos the foolproof way to a smooth, non-shaky line in our how-to video. Already a pro? Upgrade to winged liner. You can go as subtle or as dramatic as you like — either way it's a winner. Check out our Beauty Dare tutorial for tips.

Fake It

When all else fails, it's got to be false lashes. These aren't those cheesy stick-ons your see in costume stores: luxe false lashes look natural and give you a full, eye-opening fringe. Read our Beauty Dare to get started.
