True, our eyes can read and express what we think, how we feel and how we perceive things around us. Our eyes are so powerful that it can start a spark.

In our everyday life, we would always want to give a spark to our eyes. Our eyes reveal more of our personality, thoughts and belief. Why not use your best weapon to stand out? Paint your eyes, let them give a spark, let them speak.

And there’s nothing more charming than a girl who knows she doesn’t need makeup to look pretty. A guy even stated that wearing less makeup is a ‘very girl-next-door’ and ‘comfortable’.
