Step 4: The Eye Highlighters

(b) Use this coppery cream liner -- or try the company's gold hue -- along your lower lashes. Isadora perfect contour kajal in Brown Bronze, $8.50, walgreens.com.

Bonus Tip:
If your skin tends to develop a shine during the day, pack blotting papers. It's better to remove oil than to mask it with more powder or makeup. boscia fresh blotting linens, $10, sephora.com.
