To make eyes pop I do a smokey Gold eye. I think Gold looks so nice on my skin tone…I make the lid and botton extra dark for a sultry look and it instantly makes my eyes pop.

claudia Avatar

Using a beige pencil on my waterline helps a LOT ! I’m not really fond of using a white pencil, but a more ‘nude’ color is perfect, just like those chromagraphic pencils :))

Cathy Avatar

My favoite way to make eyes pop is the old standby where you use white liner on waterline and just outside of tearduct. set with a light shadow and it wakes up your eyes.

awesome give-away πŸ™‚ I always use a silver eyeliner at the inner of my eyes to make them pop and a great mascara – Chanel Exceptionel πŸ™‚

Marinka Avatar

My favorite beauty tip to make my eyes pop; use neutral eyeshadow on the eyelid and a bright color on the lower lash line. Also, I like to use a white/flesh toned eye pencil on my lash line to give it that special look.

Andie Avatar

My favorite beauty tip to make my eyes pop is using white eyeliner, it really does make the eyes look bigger, plus it hides any signs of being tired. πŸ˜‰

Emily Avatar

I love to use dark bronzy browns around my blue eyes to really make them stand out and pop. I always get the most complements when I use bronzy browns or purples!

Lorraine Avatar

My favorite beauty tip on making eyes pop is adding gorgeous false eyelashes to add fullness and length to your natural eyelashes. It makes for a sexy more sophisticated look. They make for tons of differnt looks and fits any personality. =)

kaylena Avatar

I think a couple ways to make brown eyes pop is to use purple and brown eye shadow shades.

Warm browns with ruddy undertones and cool purples with pink undertones always make my eyes pop.

Add a bit of Benefit’s Eye Bright or MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl to waterline and its heaven on brown peepers!

Thanks for the giveaway! ^_^

I usually line my waterline with a creme liner to make my eyes pop! Or….put a dab of goldmine (or any gold-toned shadow) with a 219 brush in the inner corners of my eyes! Hope your final went well!

PurpleSaila Avatar

My favourite tip to make my eyes pop is to curl my lashes from root to top to create “doe eyes” and then coat the lashes with black waterproof mascara. The waterproof mascara makes the lashes stay curled the whole day. A very effective way to make your eyes look bigger.

Zoe Avatar

I’m very pale with almost clear blue eyes which can get lost on my face so it’s very important to make my eyes POP. I like to do this two ways, one is to apply MAC Teddy eyeliner on my upper eye, a smooth rusty bronze that really makes blue eyes stand out, and follow that with a nude/beige liner on my bottom inner eye line, I recommend the MAC Chromagraphic pencils in the darker shade. The other thing that I love is lining my lower inside lid with an electric blue like NARS eye liner pencil in Kitty or mac Technakohl in smooth blue!

verybecca Avatar

To make eyes pop (mine are brown) I use a champagne or gold on the inner corner which always makes me look more awake…a slightly deeper gold on the lid and a deeper shade on the outer corners – top with liner on upper lashline only for a doe-eyed look.

Irenaeus Avatar

I tightline, add a lot of mascara, and use a lighter eyeliner instead of black or brown! To make eyes really pop, use a spoon.

Sarah Avatar

my favorite beauty tip to make my eyes pop is using eyeshadows and pigments wet! The colors are a lot more concentrated when used wet! So dab the eyeshadow/pigment onto your makeup brush and spray MAC’s Fix + on the brush where the shadow/pigment is (one or two spritzes is enough)!

Its both sanitary and clean way to add more color to your eyes! πŸ˜€

elly Avatar

My favourite beauty tip (and new favourite product) to make my eyes pop is using the chromagraphic pencil on my waterline! I look about a hundred times more awake!

Laura Avatar

Hmmm, I think one of my favourite beauty tips to make eyes pop is the obvious one, white liner on the waterline.However, my eyes are blue, so when I add a bit of aqua liner to the waterline, I think it makes them pop even more.

Khristine Talactac Avatar

My absolute favorite beauty tip to make eyes pop are put concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin shade under the eyes as well as put a nude/white liner on the lower waterline for instant awakening/pop of the eyes!

Grace Avatar

My favorite beauty tip is to add white or a nude color eyeliner on the botto waterline to give a more awake and open look. I have the Asian monolid (because I’m Asian..duh hahaha) so it really helps and I also like to add a bright color in the middle of the lid to give it an open effect as well.

Ashley Avatar

My favourite tip to make eyes pop is to highlight the eye and apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. If you do nothing else with your makeup, your eyes will still pop!

CurlyKye Avatar

Oooh Enter me! All I need is my CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara to work my eyelashes and make my eyes POP. Simply as that. If I want to get creative for evening, a subtle black or navy/midnight blue smokey eye will do!

Valene Avatar

My favorite tip to make eyes POP is a sparkley little highlight in the inner corner to brighten. And with my blue eyes I choose something with a touch of copper or bronze to really set off the colour.

Shelby Avatar

My favorite way to make my eyes pop is to line my waterline with purple eyeliner. I have green eyes and purple is opposite of green on the color wheel so the contrast makes my eye color pop. For any other eye color, just choose the color opposite on the color wheel. Also I ALWAYS curl my eye lashes because it makes such a huge difference.

kristie Avatar

I like to use bright colors in the middle of the lid and at the inner corners to make eyes POP, looking larger. Thanks for a giveaway Christine!

Kathleen Avatar

Best way to make the eyes pop is to use an off-white creamy eyeliner to line the waterline, use Benefit High Brow and put on the inner corners of the eyes. Use curling and lengthening mascara and black eye liner only on the top lash line. Voila!

Jenny Avatar

my favourite product to make eyes pop is an eyeliner, pencil, liquid, anything which defines the eyes & makes them the centre of attention =)

Ruth Halls Avatar

my favourite tip to make eyes pop is: line the waterlines of your eyes with a white or flesh toned liner – it really makes you look as if you’ve had a full 10 hours sleep and also makes the whites of your eyes bigger and brighter!

Farida Avatar

My eyes are hazel/green depending on what I wear. In order to make my eyes pop, I wear black eye liner on my upper and lower waterline everyday. Every where I go, people compliment me on my eye colour. THX!

Arianna Avatar

My tip is: always apply a darker color in the outer corner, a brighter one on the lid and an iridescent color on the brow bones and inner corners to illuminate the eyes! =D

diana Avatar

i like to use eyeshadows that compliment my dark brown eyes. i like to use greens in this case, because i think it looks good and because i love green

Anna Avatar

i love to put white eyeliner on the water line but bringing it right into the tear duct and blending it makes you look so awake!

nomimon Avatar

I like to apply MUFE white pearl liner on inner rims of eyes and then extend the line past my eyes-corners and winged out at edges-its surprisingly subtle but really gives illusion of big eyes

Ashlee Hicks Avatar

I love to use black or dark brown for my upper lashline and on the outer edge of my lower lashline, then white on my waterline, and a little bit of the white around the tear duct/inner corner. It creates the most beautiful doll-eyed effect

Hendrix Avatar

My favourite way to make my eyes pop is to do a smoky eye in purple. It really enhances my green eyes and makes them sooo bright! If I’m feeling really daring, I’ll put on some false lashes, but that’s for super-dramatic days.

I retweeted this, too! (@kissprintsblog) πŸ˜€

Wendy Avatar

I know everyone knows this, but what I do to make my eyes POP is to curl my lashes. Even if they are already naturally like that, it doesn’t hurt to curl a bit to open up the eye more. I also like to line my waterline with a peachy eyeliner to brighten my eye up.
For special occassions, I use a tiny bit of glitter near my tear ducts! But of course, one can use a shimmery neutral shadow for everyday. πŸ™‚

Rita Avatar

I have creased eyes, so the best for me is to put some light&shiny e/s on lid and a darker shade above the crease (cause the crease don’t show).

Alice Avatar

My favorite trick to make my eyes pop is to put a colorful liner on my lower lash line– like designer purple pearlglide intense or urban decay’s electric 24/7 eyeliner

sara Avatar

I have 2 tips to make may eyes POP (and yours if you want πŸ™‚ )

1. I use a classic shade all over the lid (browns, taupes, purples, dark blues, dark greens) and a lighter and brighter eyeshadow on the lower lashline (lilac, gold, teal….)

2. I use a glitter eyeliner on the lower lashline!

Fabienne Avatar

My beauty tip for making my eyes pop would be putting on some falsies. I think false lashes are a great way to make your eyes stand out, even if you do not have much going on with your eyeshadow- you really do not even need that dramatic of eyeshadow to wear falsies.

brittany Avatar

my favorite beauty tip to make eyes pop is to put white eyeliner on my lower waterline,and in the inner corners of my eye. then i put a bright color e/s on my lid!

Hanna Avatar

My favorite beauty tip on making eyes pop is to use falsies. I also do a light smoky purple eye and line my bottom lashes with a sky blue. It really makes my eyes pop and is a cool look for the summer. Thanks for the giveaway!!!!!

Leah Avatar

Please enter me! I would love to try that coral crepe paint pot!

My fave beauty tip to make eyes pop (I actually have 2 :)) is 1: visine! My eyes get slightly red easy and before I go out or take pics I make sure to drop some visine in my eyes first, I stopped for awhile and I totally noticed a difference and 2: I like to put a luminizer on the outer corners of my eyes such and ELF’s luminous.

Great post!

Christina Avatar

My favorite way to make eyes pop? Layer on the mascara. Like, cake it on. The key to not having clumps is putting a piece of paper behind your lashes and push your brush against your lashes against the paper. It gives you mile long lashes, protects the shadow you’ve applied, and prevents clumps, no matter how clumpy the mascara! It also curls well without an eyelash curler! I also RT@prblms4loki

Lona Avatar

I apply Lashbalst to top eyelashes and then wing out a few fake lashes with black eyeliner pen–its trompe l’oeil falsies!

michelle Avatar

lining waterline with a light color flesh pencil. or highlighter around the tear duct : )

im guessing everyone knows this

Veronica Avatar

My favorite way to make my very small eyes pop is to line the lower waterline with Benefit’s Eye Bright pencil. I also dab a little into the inner corner of my eye. Then I ALWAYS follow-up with CoverGirl’s Lash Blast in Very Black. It’s my one drugstore staple πŸ™‚

Mona Avatar

I love to wear a smokey eye- I used MAC Satin Taupe over MAC Earth minerals (or something like that) with Urban Decay Bourbon liner all over(lid, waterline-smudge). It’s fast, easy and looks great!

Bluebell Avatar

Beige eyeshadow on the lid and highlighter along the browbone, black winged liquid liner and curled lashes with black mascara on top only, white pencil liner along inner bottom lashline

53 Avatar

1) powder my eyes.
2) wash the entire eyelid with a fav neutral e/s such as Hey from MAC.
3) line my upper water line with a dark colour
4) line the upper lash line and pull it to a “slight” cat eye look or a thin winged tip.
5) lower lash line should be lined with a light colour like gold/pewter/light brown.
6) Finish off by using a light coat of fav mascara

latindolll4 Avatar

My favorite way to make my eyes pop is to make sure my brows are well groomed and polished.
I use Anastasia products they are worth every penny !
Also , lining my top and lower eyelid for a more dramatic look πŸ™‚

Jamie Avatar

OMG you’re awesome!!!
I’m still trying to make my eye pop, using the already known rule of thumb such as applying lighter colors on the bottom waterline and on the tear duck area… somehow it never works for me!

hopefully the chromatographic pencil will work!

thank you for the contest! I may not be showing up as a follower as there is some kind of bug but I have been following you for quite some time now πŸ™‚

thanks again!

Mollie Avatar

I love love love using smashbox eyeshadow primer right under my eye/lower lashes… it perfectly hides redness, darknesss, smudging… whatever and makes you look so awake and brightened up. It’s my favorite trick!

DANA Avatar

To make my eyes POP– I like to highlight using MAC nylon or another glitter shadow right in the inner corner of the eyes!! Also filling water line makes my eyes pop!!!

Jean Avatar

My eyes look bigger when I curl my lashes and apply a good lengthening mascara or false lashes. It makes a world of difference.

Sara Avatar

I hate the way my eyes look when I line the waterline with white… so I make my eyes pop with my Vanilla pigment! I use it in the inner corners (blended up and out) and then the tiniest bit along my lower lashine instead of the white liner. That being said, I’d love to try the new pencils in this collection, the nude color must be more subtle than white!

Missa Avatar

My fav way to make my eyes pop is adding a little shimmer or bright color to the corners of the eye. And also adding natural lashes, which I think enhance your lashes so it gives it more of a pop.

mellow Avatar

I love to use a lighter color in the inner tear duct area and lots of super black mascara. Also, if going for a darker look, tightline and line the water line. It really makes brown eyes pop.

Trish Avatar

My eyes really stand out with eyeliner. And it’s so easy, when I’m in a hurry and have no time to do a proper eye, I just put eyeliner on the top and bottom water line, some mascara and it looks great. I think brown is good to go softer and black or purple if I’d like something a little bit more heavier. But since it’s a bit warmer now I turn a bit more to coral and gold shadows, keepin’ it simple for those hot days.
Paint pots are great to intensify the colors of the shadows too. Coral Crepe is a must have right now.

evo Avatar

my bf loves it when i have smokey eyes. i don’t make it too dark by lining the waterline with stila’s topaz kajal liner

Suji Avatar

To make my eyes pop I like using a shimmery white shadow on the inside corners of my eyes and sometimes allover the lid, and a line of eyeliner only on the top lid. Simple and pretty!

Kathryn Avatar

I use pearly eyeshadows in the very inner corner of my eyes and they just pop and sparkle! I use different colours depending on what the rest of my eyeshadows are, usually a very pale pink or a vanilla/creamy white.

sarah k Avatar

My tips for making eyes POP! ;D

1) Black eye liner w/ curled lashes, ultra black WP mascara, & great looking falsies!

2) Add a bit of shimmer to the inner corner of the eyes. kaPOW!

3) If I’m in a rush and I feel like I need a little *umph* to my look, I just take a bright colored e/s or liner and add a bit of color (blue, purple, green, etc.) to the outer corners of my lower lashline. A great detail that many find fast and easy to do!

Valerie C. Avatar

I use a blue pencil to line under eyes to brighten. Usually it’s a light to medium blue like MAC’s kohl in Blue Yonder….not sure if they still make that one.

milly Avatar

I use a light sticky eye primer like UD primer potion and then use MAC pigments and the apply mac eyeshadow for the crease, using a satin/shimmer hightlight colour for the highest brow point and in the inner corners. Using a light sticky primer always helps to pop pigments and loose shadows. πŸ™‚ Vaseline also works instead of a sticky primer!

Rachel Avatar

LOADS. LOADS. LOADS of Mascara. Not to the point where they look like spidery lashes, but ultra deep black mascara always works.

Rachel Avatar

For an everyday look that makes my eyes pop, i start with Bare Study paint pot over the entire lid. Then Ricepaper on the lower lid, Dazzlelight as a brow highlighter, tempting on the outer lid and crease, Nylon on the inner lid, line the lower lid with Honey Lust, and line upper and lower lashes with Black Tied. top it of with lots of black mascara, and I’m done! πŸ™‚ I have blue eyes, so this is a great look on me to make that blue really stand out. πŸ™‚

LuvJ Avatar

To make my light brown eyes stand out — I wear teal and turquoise shadows! These colors never let me down! A little white gold or champagne liner on the lower lash lines and that completes an eye-popping look πŸ™‚

Alina Avatar

My best tip to make eyes “pop” is to add a pretty and semi bright colored shadow in the inner tear duct, a bright colored eyeshadow or eyeliner on your lower lashline, and my favorite tip is to add a shimmery or glittery eyeshadow to the center part of your eyelid and blend. Doing that will help make your eyes look bigger and more awake. I feel like it helps make your eyes look hypnotic and makes It hard for people to look away from your beautiful peepers! πŸ™‚

milly Avatar

I use a light sticky primer such as the UD primers and then apply MAC pigments on the lid and apply MAC eyeshadow in the crease to define the look, i then use a shimmer/satin highlight colour on the highest point of the brow bone and in the inner corner. Using a slightly sticky base helps lock in the pigment colour and makes it pop! Also vaseline can be use instead of a sticky eye base, but must be applied very lightly. πŸ™‚

georgina Avatar

The only way to ALWAYS make my eyes pop is by curling my eyelashes and wearing mascara, all the other tips won’t work if your eyelashes aren’t curled

makeupmonkey Avatar

my favourite tip is to use benefit’s high brow pencil on the lower lash waterline – it’s not quite as obvious as white but still makes eyes really pop.

Amy M Avatar

My favorite tip to make brown eyes pop is to use pinks and purples. My current favorite springy eye is UD Asphyxia on the inner third of the lid,tear duct,and lightly above the crease on the inner part, MAC Lala (applied wet) on the rest of the lid, UD Crash in the crease, MAC Designer Purple on lower lash line, UD Yeyo on waterline, and Stila Loves Barbie in Purple Pumps on the top lash line.

Vanessa Avatar

My favorite tip is to use a white/dark cream base to make colors pop on my lids! The kat von d cream shadows in her palettes really do that!

Brie Avatar

My favorite thing to do to make my eyes pop is to smudge a light, neutral shimmery shade on the inner corners of my eyes. It really brightens them up and makes them stand out!

Jess Avatar

I like to use Sin by urban decay all over the lid and up close to the brow bone and teddy eyeliner by MAC then topaz liner by stila on my lower water line, lots of YSL mascara and TADA, easy and bright eyed look!

Cathy Avatar

To make my eyes pop, I like to use bright colors on the upper lid and line my upper lash line with a bold, black eyeliner!

Jenna Avatar

To make my eyes pop, I put on some black eyeliner (MAC Blacktrack, of course!) and a ton of mascara (or a couple of layers of false eyelashes!) while keeping the rest of my make-up very natural-looking.

I hope I win!

MimiG323 Avatar

To make my eyes pop I use a burgundy liner and purple mascara. it really brings out the green in my hazel eyes and makes them stand out!

kirsty Avatar

Putting a light silver shadow/liner just around the tearduct area really brightens my eyes! I try to avoid too much popping around the eye area, as I don’t want them to contend with my glasses!

Li Ming Avatar

Tight line upper lashes with black or dark brown eyeliner
Highlight inner eyes (top & bottom) with a frosty/shimmery eyeshadow or pencil – gold, champagne pink (MUFE Aqua Eyes 23L), white
Line lower waterline with matte or frosty pencil

Bianca Avatar

To make my eyes pop, I always wear a dark color in the part of my crease that is furthest from my eye. Not all the way across the crease, but just that outer area.

Darrien Avatar

My favorite beauty tip is putting a shimmery white shadow in the corner of my eye and lining my waterline with white or skin colored liner!

Sarah Avatar

Line the waterline (top and bottom) in shades that compliment your eye color (the opposite of your eye color), and highlight the inner corners with a shimmery pale shade.

kasiaj85 Avatar

That’s a good question and I’d love to read all the comments on this!I usually use my Bisque e/s on the whole lid to even it out, then I use any dark color I want on the crease and a little bit of eyeliner, usually black, just above my lashline. And then comes Vanilla Pigment which works miracles for me! I apply it onto the middle of my lid and blend it – this makes my eye look much bigger. And then I use it as a highlighter under my eyebrows. To finish it up, I use my mascara to thicken and curl my lashes. πŸ™‚

Hannah Avatar

A neutral eye with a bright color on the lower lashline. My favourite color to use would have to be teal πŸ™‚ Give such definition to the eye!

Tamara Avatar

To make my eyes pop, I like to put DiorShow Blackout mascara on my top and bottom lashes, making sure every lash is defined. It makes my eyes look HUGE and I’ve even been asked if I was wearing false lashes a couple of times!

Christina Avatar

I like to line just my upper lash line, and only put mascara on the upper lashes as well. That, plus some fun bright eyeshadow!

Anna Avatar

Use a light color of eyeliner to line your waterline, then put a mid tone color under your lashes to make you eyes look huge.

kara vitacca Avatar

personally i think curling your eyelashes is the best way to make your eyes pop but for going out
I like to use macs pearl reflects on my eyelids over a smoky eye. I love the way it makes your eyes glitter!

Mattea Avatar

i love to do the whole color theory thing, & use colors that are or have an undertone thats opposite of my eye color. i also like to use a good mascara πŸ™‚ definitely makes eyes pop πŸ™‚

Anna Phylactyc Avatar

When lining my eyes with my go-to black liner, Blacktrack f/l, I always do the following, and my eyes really pop!: Starting at the inner corner, I line verrrry close to the lashline, keeping the line thin, but as I get to the the center, gradually, subtly widen the line so that it stays thin throughout, but is thickest at the outer third of my eye. Then I line the upper waterline with the same and apply black mascara, but keep my lower lashline and waterline bare- this makes my eyes look huge, almondy, almost feline, and I love the effect. The addition of a white or flesh-toned liner to the lower waterline adds even more wide-eyed freshness, so I would love to try the Chromagraphic pencil!

Fridde Avatar

My favorite tip to makes the eyes pop is to use contrast-colors. If you have blue eyes- go with oranges, corals and coppers. If you are a brown eyed girl- use purples, violets and yellows!

Dawn Avatar

White pencil on the waterline is the thing that makes my eyes pop. I’m looking forward to trying the chromographic pencils when they come out over here, too

Molly Avatar

I use white eye liner on my waterline and a light blue and silver shadow on my lid. Because my eyes are brown, it draws attention right to my eyes!

Aoife Collins Avatar

I love MAC Woodwinkedο»Ώ eyeshadow!!!ο»ΏIt’s perfect for me as it makes my blue/greenο»Ώ eyes POPο»Ώ haha!

Helen Avatar

My tip to make eyes pop is to highlight highlight highlight. I know it’s pretty obvious but it’s the only thing that works for me.

shelby Avatar

To make my eyes pop I use a navy-blue eyeliner instead of black. The blue eyeliner makes my eyes look larger and the whites of my eyes brighter!

Maggie Avatar

I have olive green eyes and to make them pop i do a smokey purple taupe combo on my eyes with colors like mac sketch, fig1, satin taupe & Nars ondine, or ashes to ashes,

MissDeeCanada Avatar

A good shadow base similar to the colour can definately make a shadow pop. I love using the paint pots from mac for this πŸ™‚

Phoebe Dixon Avatar

Two simple tips;
Use white liner along the water line, then counteract with black on the lower lash line, will immediately create the illusion of bigger, more defined eyes.
Also, try using a colour to match your eyes, or at the opposite end of the colour spectrum to line all around your eyes, will bring out your eye colour beautifully!

Sophie Avatar

I like to make by eyes pop by putting some blackliquid liner on my upper lashline and then a thin line of white eyeliner above that, overlapping with the liquid liner just a little, little, little bit to make a super thin silvery line in between the black and white. Easy to do and takes all of two minutes, but definitely gives the basic look a little extra oomph πŸ˜€

Kerstin Avatar

I have hazel eyes, so the best color to make them “pop” is purple. I like browns, too. Blue liner on the waterline works well, because the white appears whiter and so the color of my eyes is standing out, that’s how i feel ;).

Good luck to everyone!

Kirsten Avatar

Making eyes pop depends on the eyecolor. I have blue eyes so if I use purple eyeshadow or liner the blue really stands out

Lauren Avatar

I have blue eyes, to make my eyes pop I line my water line and tight line. Then (sometimes) I use light brown(lid), copper(crease and outer V),and a light white shadow(highlight), and yeah it makes my eyes look awesome! (: yay! haha (and of course mascara!)It would be nice to win. I cant afford MAC :/

fabienne Avatar

Hi darling!
my name is fabienne and i’m italian! the secret for make the pop-eyes is to unleash our creativity, thinking about things that make us happy, and use bright colors, thinking about flowers, sea and springtime! and why not,listen to good music!

Cynthia Avatar

I use several “tricks” that I find help my eyes to POP! I doubt these ideas are new, or exciting, but they work for me. πŸ™‚

-Heavier mascara on the outer half of the eye, very light hand on the inner half.
-Slightly shimmery, flesh coloured pencil on the waterline, and inner corner of the eye.
-In situations where I have to keep eyeshadows neutral/muted, I’ll usually use a “fun” colour on the outer 2/3rds of the lower lashline.
-When doing a dark/smokey look, I’ll use a lighter, shimmery colour on the inner corner.

That’s all I can think of for now. I look forward to reading what others have to say!

Hannah Avatar

I like to use a plum colour on my waterline to make my eyes look white, and I also think purple makes my eyes (brown) stand out πŸ™‚

Sarah Avatar

1- Always curl lashes
2- use fake lashes smartly
3- white pencil on waterline
4- perfectly shaped eyebrows
5- use. Colored contact lenses
These are my best tips,which work wonders on me.

Stephanie Avatar

I love to highlight my inner corners with a shimmery shadow like Mac’s femme fi or naked lunch. I also like to use a green or blue liner to make my brown eyes pop!

Bernice Avatar

Hi Christine,

Thanks for the contest !
My favourite tip to make my eyes pop is to line my waterline with a matte, black kohl eyeliner and on the lower lash line I add a bright colour while deeping the outer lash line πŸ™‚ Oh, and a flattering white or champagne highlight in my inner corners! It definitely makes a difference =)

Alex Avatar

reaching for black mascara rather than brown, and using lots of pale pink and purple because it’s light enough to look fresh but not so light that it makes my eyelids look obese.

Ingrid Avatar

My fave beauty tip to make eyes “pop”: using dry e/s to softly line the lashline. Really enhances the eyes without going overboard. Matte e/s like MAC copperplate or LM black plum work the best for me, really bring out the green tones.

Phoebe Avatar

One thing i do everytime i go to work is use a shimmery brown eyeliner (almost gold but darker) to make your brown eyes pop. I think it will also look good on other eye colors. I do this all the time since black is too harsh for day makeup specially when i go to an office environment.

Julia Avatar

I think using the right kind of under eye concealer– nothing to chalky or heavy– makes your eyes pop in a natural way!

Sarah Avatar

1- Always curl lashes + good mascara
2- use fake lashes smartly
3- white pencil on waterline
4- perfectly shaped eyebrows
5- use Colored contact lenses
6- I use kajal on lower lashline, smudge it with a qtip,give me a smouldry smoky look+ defined eyes.
These are my best tips,which work wonders on me.

Stephanie Avatar

I have brown eyes, and I love using gold e/s on the lid or green liner on lower lashline to make it really stand out. I also put MAC Vanilla/Your Ladyship pigment in the inner corner of my lashline.

Lauren Avatar

i curl my lashes and put on two different mascaras! and then, as others have said, i use a white eyeliner pencil on my lower waterline and on my inner corners to open up my eyes

Audrey H. Avatar

The best way to make my eyes pop is a good night sleep, I look bright eyed and alive! Otherwise, highlighting eye shadow under my brows and curled/mascara eye lashes (which I’m too lazy to do lol). Thanks for this lovely giveaway, would love to try these Mac products.

Valerie Avatar

To give my eyes some pop takes 3 easy steps
