Puppy-Eye Makeup Has the Power to Win Over Even the Toughest Judges

Step aside, kitten eye—there’s a new adorable look in town. Puppy-eye makeup has us wagging our tongues for its brightening and widening effect. In just three steps you can be warming the hearts of everyone you meet with a wide-eyed stare.

Step 1: Start with a brown eyeliner pencil. Draw along your upper lash line, down past the corner of your eye and just under your lower lash line to create a triangular gap at the outer corner of your eye.

Step 2: Take a black eyeliner pencil and fill in the triangle, darkening a bit of the lines leading into your corner as well.

Step 3: Finish the look with a touch of champagne-colored eye shadow or highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes and along your lower lash line.
