Simple Way to Brighten Eyes: Fall Edition (feat. Covergirl)

This is not really a tutorial, but is just something I found out recently. The reason why I said fall edition is because in the spring and summer, people usually use bright colors on the bottom water line to brighten the eyes. But since it's fall, bright colors on the water line can be a little too much sometimes.
Eyeliner isn't the only thing you can do to the bottom lash line. I find eyeshadows to be a great alternative. The eyeshadow I have been using recently is the Covergirl Eye Enhancers in the shade "Swiss Chocolate". Since the name was torn off from the packaging, I'm not a 100% sure what the name is, but there's a picture shown for the color.
This eyeshadow is a chocolate brown with gold shimmer and glitter. The gold makes the eyeshadow look almost bronzy or a little coppery.

I apply this eyeshadow by just using a pencil brush (make sure you pick up more than you usually would, but not too much) and sweeping it on the bottom outer third of my waterline/lash line. This gives a similar effect as black or brown eyeliner has on your waterline, except not as harsh and looks more natural. It also brightens your eyes because of the gold shimmer, and makes any eye color pop, especially brown eyes.

I usually wear this three ways:
1. Applying a champagne color like "All that glitters" all over the lid, then just the "Swiss Chocolate" eyeshadow on my bottom lash line.
2. As a substitute for the Gold shadow from the Maybelline Quad "Chai Latte", from my Thanksgiving tutorial.
3. When I'm lazy and don't want to work on my make up, just sweeping this on my bottom lash line instantly brightens the eye.

I hope this was helpful and please follow and comment!!
And Happy Thanksgiving!
