This is a hack often used by makeup artists in fashion shows, being quick and effective to try out. Just make sure you choose a quality white eyeliner pencil, in order to obtain the desired effect.

During the winter, it is highly likely you will battle a dull complexion, caused by the accumulation of dead cells on the surface of the skin. While exfoliation can be of great help, it is not enough. Keep in mind that the skin was exposed to the sun, the entire summer and a good part of autumn. For this reason, you might present areas of hyperpigmentation on your face, with an uneven skin tone. You need to use top skin brighteners and eliminate that dull complexion, enjoying a beautiful and uniform skin tone. It is recommended to use only high-quality products, preferably with natural or herbal extracts, as these deliver the best results.
