Eye MakeUp Tips:
If you are trying to find a way to speed up your morning makeup routine then you are going to want to check out this application technique. You can easily find the time to put this look together when your morning coffee is brewing. This is a good eye makeup look to help you to look awake when you have over slept for work as well.
|Eye Makeup Step #1: Always Start With An Eye Primer|
|Eye primer helps create a smooth surface for the eye makeup. Once the primer has dried, you can apply an eyeshadow base that helps make the eyeshadow stick to the skin better. If you don’t have an eyeshadow base, a concealer or foundation will do.|
|Eye Makeup Step #2: Start With 4 Basic Shades|
|For beginners, you want to start with 4 basic shades to pull off an everyday natural look. You need a highlighter that is a shade lighter than your skin tone, a matte mid-tone shade, a contour shade that is 2-3 shades darker than the skin and a matte black shade. If you have a facial highlighter, you can use that too.|
This eye makeup look is something that can be done with any eye color and skin tone. You do not need to worry about matching colors or trying to highlight your eye color when you are creating this look. All that you need to do is to focus on looking great before you walk out the door.
Use a cream concealer that is a half shade lighter than your skin tone to start this process. You will put some on any dark circles that you might have. You can also put some on your eye lids to even out the color of the skin. This helps to make you look more awake and will get your eye makeup to last all day.
|Eye Makeup Step #3: Grab The Essential Eye Makeup Brushes|
|You will need a small flat eyeshadow brush for application, a small and medium-sized blending brush and a smudger (optional).|
|Eye Makeup Step #4: Glide Your Flat Brush|
|Glide your flat brush on the lightest shade and apply this on the inner corner of the eyes. This is where most of the product should be and then you can easily blend outwards after.Make sure to tap your brush before applying to remove excess product.|
|Eye Makeup Step #5: Here’S A Neat Trick You Can Try|
|Dip the tip of the brush in water enough to dampen it. Then glide it on the eyeshadow and apply again in the inner-most corner of the eyes (tearduct area). You’ll be amazed at how pigmented it is.|
When you’re done with that, use the same color and highlight the arch of your eyebrows.
Grab your blush brush and put some of the same blush that you are going to use on your cheeks across your eye lids. A light dusting of this color will help to give your eyes some depth without too much color.
Grab one of your eye makeup compacts that you have. You can choose just about any color compact that you own to do this look. The key is that you are looking for a multi pack that has one light color that is known as a highlighter in it. This is the only actual eye shadow color that you will be using.
Apply a little bit of the highlighter color to corner of each eye by the nose. You will put some of this light eye makeup color under your eyebrow where it arches. You can also use a fan brush and apply some of this color on top of your cheek bone.
Finish your look with black mascara and eye liner on the top lid of your eye. If you layout all of the eye makeup and tools that you need to create this look in the morning, you can do this application in less then 5 minutes in the morning.
|Eye Makeup Step #7: Contour The Eyes|
|Using the contour shade, apply from the outer corner while blending into the crease on the outer half of the eye. Please make sure that you don’t blend too high because the mid-tone shade should always be higher than the contour shade.|
|Eye Makeup Step #6: Mid-Tone Shade|
|Now on to the mid-tone shade. Use a blending brush to apply the eyeshadow above the crease, blending from the outer corner inwards.|
How will you know you didn’t overdo it with the shadow? Hold your brush at the edge of your nose going up to the edge of the eyes. Anything below the line should be clear.
