Beauty Buzz : Get to the Point

Eyes are the main factor in your makeup application. Get to the point with smoldering, subtle, or smiling eyes. Forget the rules that brown eyes = black liner and blue eyes=brown liner. Whatever your mood is go for! Surprise your face with a turquoise or bright green liner, you will be surprised at the wonderful praises you get-That's if you apply it right of course!
The best way to apply black eye liner is to apply in the inner rim of the eye, it creates that dramatic yet appealing look. For bright fun peepers, you can just apply to the actual bottom rim of the eye and apply a nude shadow on your eye lid. And for dramatic results, apply all over the eye. Both the bottom and top. To create subtle eyes, its best to use a cream tipped eye pencil in a light brown shade. This universal colour will allow your eyes to look amazing on top of any eye shadow.

Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencils are the rage, it applies smooth, the color is long lasting, and they range in 13 shades inspired by different beauty locations. My favorite is Tanzania. (, $22.00)

To create a smoldering eye, its best to line the entire eye with a Kohl pencil. MAC Eye Kohl in smolder will create a sizzling factor. Check out Tyra's eye, great application will get you a look like hers.

Cat Eyes are back again for the Spring! Pair this look with a pop of pink gloss and you are diva in the room. Revlon ColorStay Liner in Blackest Black is a steal for only $7.49 (

For this Easter weekend, be sure to line your bottom eye in a bright shade of pastels!

Can you give tips on how to do a smokey eye? I'm also wondering how to keep the eye liner from coming off. A lot of times I put on black liner & it seems to travel down
