OH, what a BIG difference COLOR makes!

There's a great waste of beauty in eyes that make no use of color, and need it. You've only to look at "before" and "after" pictures of models and actresses to realize what a vast difference colorful eye cosmetics make in their appearance.

JUST for the fun and frivolity of it, take a mirror under a strong light and take a close look at your own lashes. Longer, aren't they, than they usually seem? That's because the tips are finer, paler than the rest.

Now flick a bit of colored mascara along the lash. See how the color extends them to fascinating lengths and makes them look quite luxurious?

It's all very exciting, particularly if nature hasn't given you the eyelashes you'd like.

Now let's look at eyeshadow. In these days of beauty eyeshadow belongs out in the light of day, where brushed on accurately, it's no more sensational than lipstick. Always pick smoky, muted shades for daylight, whether you use blue, green, brown, or violet.

If any one color can be more generally becoming than another it's blue, which gives the skin around the eyes that wonderful look of transparency and makes the white of the eyes seem clearer.

You can have the bluest blue eyes in town by using blue eyeshadow, blue eyeliner, and blue mascara and look utterly bewitching provided you keep the rest of your makeup pale and simple.

Eyeshadow is just about the most flattering cosmetic around, and you needn't have blue eyes to be a blue-eyed beauty. A wide band of blue makeup brushed right out to the corners of the eyes often has the effect of making neutral-colored eyes seem enormous and as blue as the ocean.

To be thoroughly eye-stopping you need only do one more thing, spend a minute or two with an eyelash curler to lock your lashes into a crisp curl. The combination of curl and color is terrific.

For hazel or nondescript eyes, try this trick: Use two shades of eyeshadow, one brilliant green, one sky-blue. Apply the green first just above the eyelashes and blend it up and outwards with the paler blue.

A brown-eyed girl might well consider using two different shades of green to give her glance warmth and lustre and then put on a good application of black mascara to make her lashes a lovely velvety fringe.

If you're lucky enough to have green eyes (said to denote talent and a shrewd mind) it's turquoise eyeshadow for you. Add a touch of charcoal pencil, black mascara (to balance the eye's clear green).

Grey eyes, with their chameleon-like quality of reflecting the colors around them, look superb shadowed by many of the greens and blues. Choose creamy mascara to give grey eyes that luminous effect.

It's a good idea to keep a lip brush to put on your eyeshadow, or else use a shadow-stick to place color just above the eyelashes. Many people find this easier. Once the color is on, you can leave it in a band or blend it up and out.

There are fashions in eyebrows, just as there are in other features. Today's eyebrow is light in color, just a trifle darker than the hair color. It is definitely arched and very well groomed.

Keep the pencil sharp, and just before use, run the point over a warm surface, a light bulb will do, to soften the lead.

To darken your brows, or if they are skimpy, touch them up delicately with eyebrow pencil of the right color. Fill in lightly with tiny strokes. Don't make one heavy pencil stroke.

Remove any straggling hairs between and under your brows with clean tweezers.

There are several small tricks of eye makeup involving mascara and pencil that are generally helpful in achieving the prettily colored and emphasised eyes that are fashionable.

For instance, you can create the effect of wide-set eyes (the ideal is an eye-width between) by emphasising your mascara on outer, upper corner lashes. This gives a shadowed or sidelong look.

Where eyes are naturally small, you can improve the view by putting mascara on upper lids and deft pencil strokes to darken the lower fringe slightly.

If you are quite young you will want to reserve the use of mascara and the like for evening wear and then apply it lightly.

For daytime wear put a bit of eyelash (or other) cream on your brows and lashes to give them a silken sheen.

And for that gorgeous and pretty look, always brush your lashes and eyebrows with a clean eyebrow brush after putting on face-powder.
