But now I think that maybe I'm not applying it correctly for my eyes.I honestly am so confused right now...plz help!!! Any suggestions welcome!!!

Your mom may be right... I have put eyeliner top and bottom on women/teens before and they have noticed that it opened their eyes. If you personally think it makes you look tired and dull, maybe use less? Or try brown eyeliner. If top and bottom black liner is too much, try just tight lining your upper lash line and apply a thin line of black eyeliner on the bottom and blend it out.

 

Eyeshadow is always great since it adds more life to your eyelids. I recommend light browns if you are just beginning. A palette from the drugstore i recommend is Cover Girl 'Shimmering Sands' Trio.. or if you dont mind splurging, i recommend the TooFaced Natural Eye palette. If you do use eyeshadow, i suggest applying mascara after and black/brown eyeliner on your lashline and then smoking it out to not be so harsh

Ok thank you so much for responding! Do you think it will give the same effect if I just line the top? Or do suggest lining both the top and bottom to really open up my eyes?

Oh yes, defiantly. I do that a lot of the times when i just want to wear eyeliner and only wearing it on top opens the eyes too. If you just line the top i suggest try also tight lining (only if you're comfortable with it) Because it'll also make your lashes look fuller if you plan to wear mascara
