17.Clumpy Lashes and Faux Freckles
Did you ever think that there would come a time when you would want to make your lashes clumpy? Life definitely is full of surprises. I say so because the time has arrived. This look is simple yet crazily impactful. All you need to do is use a mascara with a thin wand and wiggle it back and forth on your lashes until they are the thickness that you want them to be. This has to be done for both the top and bottom lashes.
If you are smart enough, you can also take advantage of a taupe color eyeliner and create faux freckles. Faux freckles will bring a lot of attention to your face. The key to making your freckles look as realistic as possible is doing them in different sizes and spacing them out about ½ an inch apart. Make sure that you keep the rest of your face as natural as possible.
Love your black eyeliner to death? Well, its time to let it go! White is the new black!
Its a common hack to wear a white eyeliner in the waterline to give the eyes a larger appearance. However, now you can wear white wing liner instead of black. The white gives your eyes a pop of natural color and also makes you look edgy all at the same time.
Make sure you keep the rest of your face natural with little or no product. Also, a good idea would be to skip the mascara as dark lashes will be a little too much for this look.
