Applying eye makeup is great because it has the power to bring out the beauty of your eyes and makes it extra irresistible to men. If properly applied, you can go from several looks from day to night and match any outfit in your closet. Here is a complete guide on how to perfectly apply your eye makeup.
1. Figure out your eye shape
This is imperative when it comes to picking the right eye makeup as one look can totally look drastic on the other. Ladies with hooded eyelids should use a light shadow on their eyelids and a darker eyeshadow on the center of the eyelid to the outer corner of their eyes. Veer away from dark shadows as it can make your eyes look even smaller. Curling and applying mascara helps open up the eyes and makes it “pop”. Women with prominent eyelids should stay away from shimmery eye makeup as it can further emphasize their prominent eyelids. Stick to medium to dark colors. Lastly, deep set eyelids can get away with any makeup looks. Just be sure to take things in moderation or you may end up looking like a drag queen. Always remember that less is more.
2. Prep your eyes
If you want to make your makeup lasts longer, applying eye primer is recommended. This will help your eyeshadow to have something to cling in to and prevent any smudges throughout the day. There are affordable yet quality eye primers that you can choose from. Some may even have light reflecting pigments in them for an added glow into the eyes.
3. Choose 3 base colors
If properly applied, you can go from several looks from day to night and match any outfit in your closet.
You should use 3 eyeshadow colors that belong to the same shade family. Your base is the lightest of the three shades. This serves as the foundation color and should be applied all over your eyelid. The next is the medium color which is applied in your crease. The last one should be the darkest and it is used to define and deepen the color of your eyelids. Damping your eyeshadow brush with a bit water can intensify the color and makes it last longer. This is great if you wish to create a smokey eye look. The three should balance each other and not clash to prevent harshness and keep your makeup looking natural. Use a blending brush to blend the three colors and to prevent streaks or any visible lines. If you are quite unsure about the look of your makeup, you can ask your family member or a friend who is with you for an honest opinion. This will help you correct any mistakes as early as possible before heading outside.
