2. Take your favorite black eyeliner like Revlon's ColorStay Eyeliner ($7), and line the upper eyelash line all the way from the tear duct to the end of the eye. Flip the color up a bit at the edge of the eye to create a lifted eye illusion. I like this formula for it's incredible staying power, there's no smudging, and it is self sharpening! No need for annoying pencil sharpeners.
3. Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler (always;-)) then apply two coats of black mascara ( I used Maybelline's Define-A-Lash, $8) to the top lashes and one coat on the bottom if you desire.
