Why you should own black AND white eye liner

Sometimes I prefer my eyes to look Very Wide Awake and fresh.

But sometimes I want them to look all smouldery and dramatic.

I know! I know. It really is terrifically exciting waking up and discovering which shade I will opt for.

For the times I want to look fresh and bright, I use a white (or a pinky, fleshy toned, such as Benefit Eye Bright) eye pencil, and when I want it all defined and sexy-ish, I go for a black or brown eye pencil. And where do I use them? My waterline! A not-even-made-up area that’s definitely worth toying round with.
