Slept in makeup

Since the supermodel era of the nineties, the fashion, industry's best faces have sworn that a coat of jet-black mascara and a swipe of kohl look better the next morning. Luckily, you don't have to sleep in your makeup to get a bedroom eye smolder.  


  1. Using a kohl pencil, outline a solid line from inner corner to outer corner along the top lash line.  
  2. Dapple dots above the line you've just drawn to create an bleeding, imperfect effect. 
  3. Using your finger or a brush, smudge and blend the line as much as you'd like.  
  4. Tight line your lower lash waterline with the kohl pencil.  
  5. Stipple just below the bottom lashes, creating an imperfect, bleeding effect. 
  6. Blot the lower lash eyeliner for a true slept-in look.
