If you have truly magnificent eyes, you need to accentuate them. Makeup can then be your best friends when used correctly. The best way to show off your eyes is to make sure they stand out. Opt for eye shadow darker than your skin tone if you have pale eyes and light tone for dark eyes. Add an eyeliner to get a more sophisticated finish. By focusing on the eyes you should avoid dark stipe or foundation for the contouring. Use colours similar to your skin tone.
