We chatted up brilliant makeup artist Justin Henry (clients include Naomi Watts and Eva Mendes) on how to "make it work" in the real world. "First, make sure your pencil is both sharpened and clean-this is important because you're rubbing the pencil on the delicate, inner eye area," Henry says. "The white liner should be your final step-after applying all eye makeup and mascara-to keep it from smudging." If you want an even more natural pick-me-up, Henry suggests using a beige or cream pencil. "It will look just as effective and it's a little less dramatic," he says.
