What she thought:
This look was extremely easy to do. Just a quick application of my usual foundation (Clinique Even Better foundation in 03 Ivory, $24.50), concealer (it Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer in Neutral Medium, $24) and mascara (CoverGirl Lashblastfusion mascara, $9.99), then a swipe of light blush, lip gloss and eyeliner. I probably wouldn't wear a liner this bright to work, but it's perfect for happy hour or a party. What's great is you can easily apply the eyeliner without having to re-do any of the makeup you're already wearing -- it won't mess up or change anything, just add an element of fun. And with a good pencil, it literally takes seconds to swipe on and smudge. I could easily do this in the bathroom or car after work. Plus, wearing the liner underneath your eyes creates a stronger statement, and is more unexpected than applying it to your upper lids.
