  6. Eyeliner. There are a few to choose from (liquid, pencil, gel) and regardless of the finish, eyeliner is a non-negotiable for the very reason that it can instantly make your eyes pop, defined, smaller, bigger, and the list goes on.

  7. Lippie. Take your pick from a lipstick, lip stain, lip gloss, or tinted lip balm, and make sure that you always have on in your kikay kit because swiping on some color on your lips is the answer to looking more put together or even just adding warmth to your pretty face.
