I like putting a gold/bronze eyeliner on the inner corners of my eyes. It looks pretty and makes me look more awake.

I have medium to dark brown eye's and always used the brown's when it came to applying eyeshadow. I DID notice that it really did nothing for my eyes which is my best facial feature so I found advice on here about trying mauve's, plum's, grey's, etc.. since there is NO color you cannot use with brown eyes.. I LOVE the mauve and grey color's together and apply from the lightest color to the darkest (I D0 add water too) until I get that perfect look.. It made my eyes so much more noticeable and I received so many compliments..I watch tutorial's on applying make-up and finally learned how to apply eye make up like the pro's although it took a lot of time, trying and re-trying, and a lot of patience..Thanks totalbeauty and everyone who made comments for sharing this information

I've noticed that gold eyeshadows make my eyes look more awake and bigger. Sparkly/shimmer nudes are also beautiful!
