Well, this hack that the talented ladies of The Beauty Department came up with falls perfectly into the category of subtle-yet-impactful makeup tricks. Instead of completing a smoky eye with the typical black or nude liner on the inner rims, the TBD girls suggest lining them with a metallic shadow stick.
For their DIY, the ladies used a bronze-y gold (Jouer Crème Eyeshadow Crayon in Baroque to accent an espresso-hued makeup look, but we could see this eye being amazing in black with a silver accent or navy with a shimmery light blue rim. Any way you wear it, your eyes will be illuminated with just a hint of brightness — a perfect fit for an early meeting, if you ask us. But, hey, if you're a big fan of The Hyper-Literal Cat Eye, you do you. (The Beauty Department)
