The Eyeshadow Quad That Helps Me Look Like I Know What I'm Doing

The thing is, I'd always get confused about where exactly the "crease" was and which shade would work best swept over my entire lid...and all that other stuff you always read about in magazines. Good thing there's CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Eyeshadow, $7. Not only do the color-coordinated palettes work to make your eyes stand out (even if they're dingy brown like mine) but they come with shades that complement each other and that are easy to identify as the "highlighter" or "crease" color.
The "Vibrant Browns" collection boasts a slate gray, a lighter gray, a coppery gold and a light gold that really do help add definition to my smallish eyes. (Or maybe that's because I'm finally applying it correctly. Who knows? Either way, I'll take it!)
Ooh, and here's one "secret" that I can share. If you're not too sure about which shades work best on you, consult this nifty color finder. It really helps shine some light on what's flattering. (And what's not.)
