We can already hear you screaming… “Sticky eyes! Clogged pores! Lip gloss sliding down my face!”

But don’t run in the opposite direction just yet.

We promise this is one of those things that looks too scary to attempt, but it’s not.

Most of the time, it’s easiest to stick to what you know – i.e. liquid liner, kohl pencil, a coat or two of mascara and a smudge of shadow if you’re feeling super fancy (we know, ’cause we’re pleading guilty too) – but we say life’s too short to be predictable.

The alternative? A wet-look eye, of course (phresh off the runway).

But if you’re still on the fence, consider this: 70% of the time you wear wardrobe staples (black jeans, a leather jacket, a denim shirt), but sometimes you step it up a notch if the occasion calls for it. So why shouldn’t the same go for your face?
