Navy eyeliner is stunning and a nice break from black. “It also gives you flexibility to be imperfect, because it’s not reading as vividly as black,” says Mortis. It’s easiest to work with a brush and a gel liner in a pot so you can control the amount, unlike a liquid liner (where the brush is a bit more pliant, making it harder to nail a sharp angle). Trace a line just above your lashes, then place a business card at the corner of your eye. Lift the card to where you’d want your lashes to wing out. Draw the wing along the edge of the card. To keep the focus on the eyes, go soft on cheeks and lips. The salmon-y pink matte lipstick used here works best if you neutralize your natural lip color with a flesh-tone shade first to cancel out the undertones.
