Big, beautiful eyes—we all want them. Unfortunately, heredity rules and exotic eyes simply aren’t part of every gene pool.

Never fear—eyeliner is here!

Natalie Bloom, founder of Australia’s girly makeup line Bloom Cosmetics, says, “Eyeliner is a great cosmetic for accentuating, dramatizing and bringing out your natural eye color while also enhancing the shape of the eye.”

She shares with us some liner notes sure to have clients lining up!

Set Your Sights  Apply a small amount of eye shadow over pencil eyeliner to help set it and lend a softer, more flattering look.

Stay Sharp  Always line with a freshly sharpened pencil for control.

Close In  Emphasize the inner corners of the eyes to bring wide-set eyes closer, and don’t extend the line beyond the outer corner.

Far and Wide  For close-set eyes, place liner only on the outer edge of the upper and lower lids, with the line becoming most intense at the far corners of the eyes.
