To jazz things up a bit I used a navy blue eyeliner that added rich depth to my eyes and also a tiny bit of color. And the wine colored lip (#964) didn’t compete with the eyeliner and remained the focus of the look!When I’m shopping for beauty products, especially lipstick, I like being able to see all the options up close. I love shopping at Nordstrom for that reason because the beauty section is divided up by brand, but you can easily see all the shades available. And you can try it on, live with it for a couple minutes, and then make the decision on whether or not to buy.
After drawing your wing, draw a line back to your upper lash line. This should create an empty triangle on your upper lid. To make you eyeliner thick, draw a bigger triangle, ending at the middle part of your lash line. For a more subtle look, draw a small triangle that finishes in your outer corner.
So, the two changes I can easily make that take a daytime look to holiday party ready are eyeliner and a strong lip color! Since I knew I was going to be building on this daytime look, I chose a neutral shimmery eyeshadow (shade Ashes to Ashes) that I’ve been wearing a repeat for the last month or so. And instead of going strong on the upper lid eyeliner, I pressed used an angled brush with a bit of Rich Caviar liner into my lash line and did a tiny flick at the ends. And the serious volume on my lashes comes from this Bobbi Brown mascara that I love.
If you have the beauty balls that Rihanna has, then good for you! The singer lined her inner upper and lower waterlines with black eye liner, and then traced her eyes along her lash lines with a white shimmer pencil. This result? This icy effect that's absolutely gorgeous.

Re: eye liner on the inner eyelid
I've done this for years and feel bald eyed without it I find over the years a few things that work well for me. Waterproof crayon type softer eyepencils. Lancome or Tony & Tina (herbal pencil) that glides on like a dream. You can also take eyeshadows and a flat stiffer brush...dip it into visne and apply right into the underneath lash line and work it up into the lashes. Visne in anything will give you staying power all day.
Bobbi Brown gel liners have all day staying power too.
