Tips for Easy Eye Makeup
Define Your Brows
Make sure your brows are well-groomed and shaped. Tweeze the extra hairs and avoid overpenciling. Fill only sparse spots.
Dark circles and wrinkles will make you look aged. There may be a number of reasons for dark circles like fatigue, irritation, allergies etc. You can cover up the puffiness and dark circles by using creamy concealer and moisturizer. Pat it gently around the eye with the help of your ring finger. Avoid using forefinger, as it puts more pressure and can stretch, pull and damage the skin around the eyes, which is very delicate.
This is one of the eye makeup tools, which is largely unpopular among women. A curler could make you look bright and awake in a few seconds even in the absence of makeup. Gently press the eyelash curler from the bottom of your lashes. If you prefer extra lift, the clamp can be opened and closed on your eye lashes right up to the end.
There are many factors to keep in mind while selecting mascara, as every brand claims better and bigger benefits. It is available in blue, brown and black color. Apply 2 coats of mascara to give a definition to your lashes. Apply the second coat only after the first coat dries. This prevents clumping.
You can set your lids with an eye-base, so that they are ready for a gleaming eye shadow of your preference. You can apply a three-toned eye shadow for an alluring look. Start from the bottom of the eyelid to the brow, which allows the makeup to merge perfectly. This way, your eyes will look more sensuous.
A liquid eye liner will enhance the appearance of your eyes. Always start lining from the inside to the outer eyelid and apply as close to the lids as possible. You can apply the eyeliner on the lower eyelashes as well. This gives a distinct and clear look to your eyes. Thicker and darker lining is acceptable, if you want a dramatic look, but light application is more suitable for a subtle definition.
Highlighting is an important step in the eye makeup. It gives an appealing touch to your eye, making you look like a diva. Use a creamy or a glittery white highlighter and apply to the brow bones, inner corners and the middle of the eyelid. You can also use a black shade to create more prominent and alluring look.
Makeup Colors Depending on the Eye Color
Purple is the best bet, if your eye color is green. Gold will look perfect, if you have emerald or olive eyes. You can try cranberry for a bold look.
Orange tone will look great for those with blue eyes. Orange lipstick is ideal if you want a dramatic look. However, do not choose a blue shade that is similar to the color of your eyes.
Choosing the right color may be a little difficult here, as it depends on the shade of your eyes. So, you need to first figure out, if they have brown, blue, or green tone and then pick the color accordingly. All hazel-eyed girls will look good in chocolate and pink tones.
Any shade will look good on girls with brown eyes, especially purple. Navy, honey, chocolate, and champagne will look great if your eyes are lighter. You can choose any color for a wild look. However, avoid super dark smoldering eyes, as they could dampen your eye color.
If you are wearing glasses, then you can apply a little more mascara at the bottom of the eyelashes, so that the fringe looks thicker, which will divert the attention from the frame to your eyes. You can also emphasize the brows and use an extra layer of eyeliner along with a deep-toned eye shadow.
There is a wide variety of products available in the market. Always choose one that perfectly suits you. Also, you can check the counters in the departmental stores, where you can test the makeup products before purchasing them. Home makeover can be absolute fun and a way to relieve your stress.
