Glow, glow, glow.. you must be sick of hearing me use that g-word all the time, but truthfully, I love anything that makes me glow! Until now, that function has been left to the face products - the foundation, primer, bronzer, blusher and highlighters, bar the Estee Lauder French Vanilla. But recently, I've found an eye product and a technique that adds another level of - wait for it.. glow, to your face!
And that is, the white eyeliner. Not on the waterline as many people suggest, but on the bottom inner corner as I have above. It's super subtle but makes worlds of difference. A lot of people don't like using white eyeliner because it can come across quite stark, but using it this way I find it much more natural and more effective. I tend to blur it out with my finger if I find it too stark anyway, and because of my folded eyelid, I don't apply it all around the tear duct - but I suppose you could if you wanted to! I'm not quite sure why, but this seems to instantly open up my eyes and brighten the area around the eye.
The pencil I've been using is the Rimmel Soft Kohl pencil in white. Cheap as chips, and granted it doesn't last ages on the skin, it's easy to buy 2 and take around with you if you are touch-up inclined.
There's really not much more to say other than that I've found this trick and I wanted to share it with you in case it makes a massive difference to you too! Short and sweet, I highly recommend a go - I haven't skipped this step in months now, it just makes me look much more awake than I really am most mornings! ;)
Have you used a white eyeliner before?
What do you use to give that glowing/brightening effect?
