One of the most sensual makeup looks, a clever flick can lift the eye, creating primal allure. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury makes it foolproof. Step 1: Make a dot a third of the way between the outer corner of your eye and the brow tip. Step 2: Run a kohl pencil along the lash line, up towards the dot. Step 3: Trace over the kohl with liquid liner for a graphic finish.
