How to Naturally Enhance Your Eyes

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share a quick and simple "pictorial" it seems that these types of images are super helpful based on the Pinterest feedback I get from them!

I wanted to talk about "naturally" defining your eyes. A lot of women aren't big on eye shadow but still want to define their eyes in some way. The most common thing I see is TONS of black liner, which, in my opinion, only makes your eyes look harsh and dark.

I wanted to share some of my tips for getting a natural defined eye look without having to whip out a ton of brushes and your "smokey eye" manual.


What I Used

NYX Natural Eye Palette: This is a great natural/every day palette. Perfect for beginners or someone who is just getting into eye makeup. I obviously used the 4th color (pale ash brown) and the 6th color (dark charcoal brown) for this look. I love using the dark brown as an eye liner, it's the most perfect level of intensity. You could also go for the more taupe color for your crease, this is just what I went for.

L'oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara: This is probably one of my favorite drug store mascaras. It doesn't clump and it gives great length. I also love it for my bottom lashes too. The brush is super skinny 
and really lengthens your lashes.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil "Whiskey": Whiskey has to be my go-to brown liner, I love it! It's the prettiest brown liner I own and one of the best formulas I own. It has a bit of shimmer specks in it so it gives a luminous effect when applied.

E.L.F. Eye Brow Kit: As most of you know, this has been my go-to kit for my brows for quite some time. You just can't beat a brow wax and powder duo for $3!

Target Angled Eye Liner Brush: I use this brush to fill in my brows, I'm not sure if I've ever even used it as a liner brush. I love how precise it is!

E.L.F. Essential Eye Liner Brush: This has to be my go-to eye liner brush any time I use powder as an eye liner. Again, it's super precise and is small enough to reach the base of my lash line. Plus, I've had it since I was like 14?!

Sigma E35 Blending Brush: My new go-to blending brush. It fits in the socket of my eye perfectly and it great for simple looks like these!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time...


  1. Have you ever used liquid eyeliner? Would a liquid brown eyeliner be the same as the brown pencil eyeliner you used?

    1. Liquid Liner is very harsh in my opinion. You can't exactly tight-line your upper lash line with it either :/ It's too wet

  2. Love this! I just pinned it to my beauty board. :) I love using shadow as liner and have recently gotten into tightlining. Makes a huge difference.

  4. Love this look! Definitely took down some notes. What sharpener do you use for your Urban Decay 24/7 pencils?
