How (not) to line your eyes
Beauties take note: if you’ve got small peepers, you simply can’t line the inner rim of your eyes with black liner. Unless of course you want slits for eyes – case in point, Malin Akerman.
While we love the classic smoky eye that the Couples Retreat actress showcased at the Emmy Awards (not to mention her bumble-bee-like cami – super cute), we have to deduct points for her seriously eye-minimising use of liner.
So what should she have done differently?
Well, she could have created her smoky eye as normal (focusing her attention on the outer contours of her eyes), but then instead of taking to the inner rim of her eyes with a black liner, she should have opted for a white, or pearlescent light blue hue instead. Not only would it have complemented the colour of her eyes, but it would also have created the illusion of wider eyes in an instant.
