[dropcap]As[/dropcap] the saying goes, the eyes are the windows to the soul. We asked two makeup mavens to weigh in on giving your peepers a little soul of their own.
Create a canvas: Saks Fifth Avenue Yves Saint Laurent beauty specialist Niccole Wyatt says start with a primer, such as YSL Top Secrets Wake Up Eye Care, that will smooth eye contours, refresh the skin and set the stage for make up. Then dab on a little concealer just slightly lighter than your skin tone.
Lash longer: While some stay away from waterproof mascara for everyday wear, Joy Robinson, cosmetics buyer for Balliets, says it’s the way to go on your wedding day. Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara will earn its name when the tears flow and it will simply last longer.
Get in line: Wyatt says to reconsider black eyeliner, as it can look harsh especially in natural light. Opt for a slightly softer shade of gray, navy or brown.
Brilliant eyes: Robinson suggests a light colored shadow on the brow bone to keep you looking bright and refreshed. Contour with a complimentary shade, but don’t use anything too intense.
Pencil it in: Definitely pay attention to your brows, says Wyatt. Give them definition with the YSL eye pencil or a product that matches your hair color.
