Learn how to create a natural look with brown eyeliner and matching mascara

Black eyeliner and mascara looks great most of the time, but it tends to be too dramatic for a natural "no makeup" look. If you're shortening your makeup routine by creating more natural low-key looks, consider switching from black to brown products, especially for daytime. This simple swap can make a world of difference while still accenting your eyes.
Brown eyeliner complements lighter skin tones and those with blond, light brown or red hair. If you have small eyes, brown is also more flattering because black tends to make the eyes look tiny and closed off. To achieve a natural look, start with neutral eye shadow. Carefully line the upper lid, and add mascara in a matching shade of brown. Your eyes will still be accented without looking overdone.

Instructions
1. Dip the angled brush in the eyeliner pot.
2. Gently sweep the brush along the upper lash line in small strokes. Hold the outer corner of the eye taut to prevent it from moving while you're applying the eyeliner. (Don't draw the line in one shot. You'll get a straighter line if you work in small sections.)
2. Apply two coats of brown mascara to your upper lashes. Blink rapidly as you gently touch the mascara wand to your upper lashes.
3. Apply two coats of brown mascara to your lower lashes. gently brush the mascara wand on the lashes to avoid clumping.
