Easy on the Eyes
W's beauty director shares her tips for a dramatic summer look.
As spring warms into summer, I’m all about simplifying my makeup routine—but rest assured, that doesn’t mean embracing the natural look. This trio of products delivers dramatic eyes, no muss, no fuss. Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection ($16, nordstrom.com): If I’m going out after work, I like to play up my peepers by adding a little more mascara. But if you’ve ever tried layering fresh-from-the-tube product over the dried-up stuff that’s been sitting on your lashes since breakfast, you know the result is a gloppy mess. This genius potion softens what’s already there. Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow in Caroube ($34, chanel.com): This smooth formula is the ne plus ultra in low maintenance: Smudge it on and it stays put all day. Lancôme Sourcils Tint Eyebrow Pen ($27, lancome-usa.com): The precision felt tip allows me to fill in any bald brow spots in a flash; no brushing or blending required.
