Play Up Your Eyes

My favorite duo for gorgeous, defined eyes? The RealHer Do Your Squats Shadow Palette and the Doucce Smudge Resistant Eyeliner. This shadow palette contains a beautiful mix of matte and shimmer shades in warm neutrals that flatter any skin tone. Use the lightest shades to highlight your brown bone and the inner corners of your eyes, and create depth with the darker brown shades. Finish off your look with a line of ultra soft, smudge-resistant deep black kohl liner.
