Holy grail products are great, but they also make it super easy to get stuck in a makeup rut (black eyeliner, we’re looking at you). If you’re looking for a way to refresh your everyday eye looks, try switching your usual black eyeliner out for a brown one. Brown eyeliner is basically contour for your eyelids, giving the illusion of depth and definition, and offering a softer, more natural finish than jet black.
