RealSimple.com: Makeup Tips for 8 Common Problems

Help! I Don’t Know How to Play Up My Eyes

Before: Ivy Pittman, 55

“I have good-looking skin and eyes, but I really need to play them up!” says Ivy, a saleswoman and an aspiring novelist from New Jersey. Her normal makeup routine—foundation (or bronzer in the summer), blush, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil—was, she says, “not complicated, just boring.” It was also, perhaps, a little too uncomplicated, which may be a cause of her dissatisfaction. One crucial eye-highlighting tool missing: mascara. (T-shirt by Splendid.)
