Eye MakeUp Tips:
Are you a little confused on how to apply your eye makeup? Well, you’re only a few steps away to applying your eye makeup like the professionals. The colors you use makes a huge difference on how much your eyes stand out. Eyeliner and mascara puts that finished touch on your whole look.
|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.|
First, pray to God to help you in your new venture of developing a better appearance. Putting God first in everything you do will make anything go smoother. Applying eye makeup may seem small, but God is God, and He cares about our needs as well as our wants regardless of how big or small.
Next, you will need to find the perfect eyeshadow colors for your eye color. If you have blue eyes, you need to get different shades of browns. If your eyes are green, you will need various shades of rusty browns, plum, and brownish red colors. If you have brown eyes, get all shades of purples, deep blues, and violets. For hazel colored eyes, get different shades of gold, greens, turquoises, browns, and pinks. Hazel colored eyes are accented with almost any color on the spectrum. Matching your eye color with the correct color of eye shadows will make your eyes pop dramatically.
Then, take your deepest darkest shade and put it all over your top eyelid. Next, put your medium shade above your lid to the brow bone. Lastly, put the lightest shade directly under your brows. Your lightest shade should be a little bit lighter than your skin color. Make sure to blend each color into each other. Blending gives you that nice polished look. You would also put your deepest shade, the same one applied to your top eyelid, on your bottom lid. Treat your eyeshadow applicator as if it is an eyeliner pencil. You would also put your lightest shade, which was applied under your eyebrows, in the inner corners of the bottom lid. Remember to treat the applicator like an eyeliner pencil.
Your next step would be to get a black eyeliner pencil and draw a line over the lashes of the top lid. Blend the line you just drew in with the eyeshadow to create a more natural look. Then, draw a very thin line on the bottom lids. Next, get a mascara that lengthens and thickens lashes and apply two to three coats of it onto the eyelashes. Once one coat dries, apply the next coat of mascara. Your last step would be to brush your nicely trimmed eyebrows and fill in any places that needs to be filled in with an eyebrow pencil.
|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.
Now, look in the mirror and you should see eyes made of gold. Your eyes should dramatically stand out and all the blended colors should give your face a wow factor. Once you get the hang of it, it will become fairly easy to apply your eye makeup. Now you are ready to turn some heads.
Eye Makeup – Eye Makeup Tips Guaranteed to Make You Look Better
Eye makeup is by far the most fun of all to apply. Your entire look can be changed when all you do is darken or lighten your eye area, which is a really cool concept. The first thing you need to be aware of is which kind of facial moisturizer you’re using. Sun damage is the leading cause of wrinkles and cancer, and your eyes will show your age more than any other body part. Got crow’s feet? They’re easier to prevent than they are to cover up, let me tell you. That said, you should start with a moisturizer that features at least a SPF 15. Make sure you cover your whole face and neck, paying special attention to the area around your eyes.
Next, you should put on your foundation. I like to cut mine 50/50 with more face lotion to avoid a dreaded makeup line, but if you need more coverage you should just blend a little more. After you’ve put it on your entire face, you can put on your concealer. This is the first step to having great eye makeup: covering the bags under your eyes. Everyone has a little natural discoloration in that area, but you should make sure to even it out before applying eyeshadow or anything else. Once that is done, set it with face powder.
Now that your face is primed for the colors you’re about to put on it, you’re good to start applying eye makeup to your heart’s content. From eyebrow pencils to mascara, it all has to start with a good base. I prefer powdered eyeshadow over its crËme counterpart, mostly because the crËme shadows tend to crease and smear a lot. I have found that powders never do, although they may fade a bit. They key to good eye makeup is to have fun with it, though, so I encourage you to experiment on your own.
|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.
