Wide Eyed, Sparkly Eyes {How-To}

achieving wide-eyed, sparkly eyes is simple. it requires some extra attention to your eyelashes. curling your lashes, and appropriately applying mascara, can make your eyes appear wider and brighter.

an eyelash curler is an essential tool in your makeup kit. there is no other eyelash curler i recommend more than the Shu Uemura eyelash curler (you can read my review here). curling your lashes doesn't hurt, and the results are immediate. if your eyelashes are anything like mine, which grow straight forward, it will literally "open" your eyes.

another essential tool in your makeup must-haves would be mascara. mascara adds definition to your lashes, making them fuller, longer, and darker. experiment with colors to determine what you prefer. i am a Blackest Black kind of girl, but perhaps you are a Dark Brown, or Navy.
