Actually, two legitimate uses:
1. Swipe it along the inner rim of your lower lash line to visually extend the whites of your eyes, making them appear bigger and brighter.
2. Draw along the inner corner of your eye, making two little arrowheads that point towards your nose, for an ethereal highlighting effect.
Could your eyes use a bit of brightening? Find the liner you’re looking for in one of the four choices below.
Save: Wet n Wile Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in White (99 cents at Walgreens)
This drugstore staple is the way to go if you’re not sure about the look – a dollar has been spent on less useful things.
Spend: Sephora Slim Eye Pencil in White ($5 at Sephora)
These pencils come in any color you might want. If you like the formula after one try, I say stick with them.
Splurge: Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil ($15 at BeautyBridge)
This dual-ended pencil gives you a white highlighter as well as a softer pink color – two liners in one!
Shimmer: Benefit Mr. Frosty ($20 at Sephora)
A pearly liner is particularly good for the second use, on eyes’ inner corners, and can double as a brow-bone highlighter.
