There’s no argument here, eye makeup both enhances your eyes and brightens your look. But when the process involves cleaning up specks of powder shadow that have dropped down over your face, it’s forgivable if you think wearing eye makeup is too much trouble.
Well, here’s a solution – eye crayons. They’ve been around for a while, but many women are yet to discover their versatility and just how wonderful they are. So, if you like the idea of fab eye makeup, without a fuss, these are definitely for you.
