Eyeliner for me.
My eyes look like currants without it. I look tired and old. But with it... Less tired and merely getting on a bit.

What's your single item?

Lipstick. I have pale lips and look colourless without it. I have dark eyes with fairly long, dark eyelashes and don't bother with eye make up as I wear glasses.
