Our cute Asian eyes sometimes need a brightening and opening boost. We've tried all the tricks in the book, and lugged numerous eye-popping beauty essentials in our kikay kit, but this SINGLE makeup item is really the only thing we need when we're craving for instant results without the fuss. We're talking about a champagne-hued pencil like Benefit Cosmetic's High Brow Glow Pencil (at Rustan's Makati, Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, and Alabang Town Center).
Surely you've read and heard that white or nude eyeliner can enhance your peepers, but using a champagne pencil with micro-shimmer does it better. The diagram below shows you the key areas where it the highlighting pencil should be placed:
For bigger-looking eys, start by rimming your waterline with it, and then dabbing a bit of the pencil on the center of lids to make your eyes look more 3D. Lift your brows, an often neglected step in eye-opening makeup, by gliding the pencil on the browbone to the tail of the brow. As a finishing touch, dot the pencil on the inner corners of the eye.
