Shades of ombréWhen you're wearing shades of ombré, like designer Rachel Roy and actress Fivel Stewart, think of the darkest part as a layer of eyeliner and mascara on your top lid. To balance that out, try a dark smoky eye: Apply black eyeliner all the way around your eyes and smudge it outward, which makes your eyes look bigger. Then apply multiple coats of mascara. (Try COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire, $8.79, and COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara, $7.99.) Keep the rest of your makeup soft and neutral.
Bonus tip: Smoky eyes are especially great for the nearsighted, whose lenses tend to make their eyes look smaller.
