Eye MakeUp Tips:
It is often our eyes which most people will be the first thing that others focus on. Not only are they one of our most beautiful features but they help to reflect our personality and who we really are. Of course many women today will want to further enhance the way their eyes look and will use a number of different products in order to do so. So in order to help you with making yours look even more beautiful we offer a number of eye makeup tips that you may find extremely useful.
|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.|
Tip 1 – Applying Eye Shadow
It is important that the color of eye shadow you choose to apply is done so with the utmost care and of the best quality possible. Generally women will apply a couple of different color shadows to their eyes and the base coat should be the primary color that you wish to wear. It is best to apply as dark a color as possible and make sure that it covers the eyelid completely. After you have applied the base coat then you can apply the next color and this should be a lighter shade than the first and only be applied right below the eyebrows.
When choosing eye shadows select shades that complement each other, plus also the outfit you will be wearing. If you will be wearing a dress that is made up of several different colors then use several colors to decorate your eyes as this will help to create a more funky look.
|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.
Tip 2 – Applying Mascara
This is the best way of helping to make your eyelashes look much thicker, darker and curvier and also longer. Although the applying of mascara isn’t difficult you still need to be able to apply it in the correct way. You should always apply the mascara starting at the base of the eyelashes and stroking along them towards the tips. Also make sure that you do each coating in one continuous stroke. Never apply more than two coats of mascara to your eyelashes as this can make them look clogged rather than thick.
Tip 3 – Applying Eyeliner
Today when it comes to the applying of eyeliner you of course first have to decide on what color to use. When it comes to our eye makeup tips we would recommend that you choose to use a color that is going to match or complement the colors in the outfit you are wearing. When it comes to applying either liquid or powder eyeliner you should begin applying it from the inside corner of the eye and using one continuous stroke work your way along the line of the eye to the outside.
However if you would prefer to make sure that applying eyeliner is easy then use a gel based product instead. Also you should only ever apply eyeliner after you have actually applied both your eye shadow and mascara. By doing this it helps to create a more finished look to your eye makeup.
|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.
