Quick Makeup Tip: Let Your Liner Do All the Heavy Lifting

When you’re pressed for time, use your eyeliner as your shadow! Pencil liner usually works best; I like pencils with a bit of slip, but not too much, like MAC liners – Powersurge and Teddy are two of my favourites.

Oh, and try not to overthink it! Simply draw a rough outline on your lids with your pencil, then smudge and blend in with a finger or a fluffy domed shadow brush.
