Applying liner/shadow under the eyes

For my daily look, I wear eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow on the lids of my eyes only.  Any time I have attempted to put something on my lower lashes line -liner, mascara - it just seems to either make my eyes look really small or I feel like it accentuates lines under my eyes.  Is there a way to apply something under my eyes for a more dramatic look with out the negative effects?

Re: Applying liner/shadow under the eyes

I like to use a deep brown eyeliner pencil (Lancome Black Coffee) Because it isn't as harsh as black, so it still is a more dramatic look, but it doesn't draw as much attention as a stark black. I still wear black liner on the top and it is barely noticeable that I wear brown on the underneath! It is just a tad bit softer to avoid drawing attention to the impossible to avoid, fine lines under the eyes!

Hi prosopon,


I would suggest trying a brown shadow right beneath your waterline to blend out the harsh lines of the black, to make it a bit more wearable.  The Lancome Black Coffee that DeltaGammaGirl might work perfectly Smiley Happy

Another great product that is blendable is the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eyeliner in Mahogany Brown

Hope that helps!

Hi prosopon, 


Have you tried using a brighter highlighter pencil in the inner corners, or another line of coloring other than black or dark brown? I use a lot of dark liner to minimize my eyes but adding a pop of color on the lower lash line or a gold/champagne highlighter can really open them up as well.


Take a look at our Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner #20  Beige Glitter

Thank you for the suggestions.  I will definitely look into a brown pencil and highlighter pencil.
