It's one of the best-selling beauty products ever created but sometimes we all need a break from dousing our lashes with high-pigment mascara. However, you can still define your eyes with this savvy technique used by make-up artists and celebrities alike. 

Frame your peepers in a flash by simply lining the waterline of your top lid (that's the part of your eyelid that's just underneath your lashes) with a kohl pencil and close them tightly together.

The colour will subtly transfer onto your bottom lid but remain perfectly intact on the top one too, giving you even definition with next to no effort. 

This trick is so effective that actress Janet Montgomery has added it to her daily repertoire, and that's definitely good enough for us. And, with the chilly mornings rolling in, this savvy trick eliminates any 'mascara running down your face' issues. 

Check out the video above to see just how it's done and be sure to peruse the other amazing videos from our Best Advice We've Ever Heard beauty series right here...
