The eyes, they say, are the windows to the soul.
And maybe that’s true. What’s indisputable, however, is that the eyes are some of the most prominent facial features. We look into people’s eyes when talking to them. The eyes convey emotion, intent, and let us know what a person is truly feeling.
Perhaps that’s the reason why no makeup regimen is truly complete unless sufficient attention has been paid to the eyes. Eye makeup is a sub-domain of beauty in its own right, and many makeup artists specialize specifically in eye makeup.
Whether you are dressing up to attend a formal event or just preparing for a night out with friends, the right eye makeup is of vital importance. However, this is easier said than done, because every pair of eyes is different, and hence the eye makeup needs of one person may not be the same as that of another.
Listed below are some tips that’ll help you create the perfect eye makeup look for every event!
1. Use Eyeliner for Full, Dense Lashes:
Applying eyeliner is one of the most basic steps that you can take towards perfecting the eye makeup. The eyeliner is relatively easy to apply and allows you to fill in any empty or sparse spots on your lash line. To ensure that the eyeliner lasts longer and doesn’t smudge, you should clean your eyes and then apply primer on your eyelids before putting the liner in place.
Then, you must apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as you can to ensure that the eyeliner looks like a part of your natural lash-line and your eyelashes will look fuller and denser than before.
2. Ensure Precision and Accuracy:
When applying the eyeliner, the precision and accuracy of application are key to getting the desired results. So, for maximum precision, you must ensure that your eyeliner brush or the tip of the pencil is thin but blunt, as this shape will help you achieve greater precision and enable you to create the ideal shape for your eyes. To keep your eyeliner from crumbling during the process of application, you may try freezing it before sharpening.
If you are trying to create the perfect winged eyeliner, it would be best to use a liquid liner and start working at the center of the lash line, moving outwards towards the corners as you go. You should, however, first line your eyes with the help of a pencil liner, if you feel your hands aren’t yet steady enough for a liquid liner.
3. Choosing the Right Makeup Look:
Currently, smoky eyes have become very popular among makeup enthusiasts. To create a smoky-eyed look, you’ll need a pencil eyeliner, as they are softer and creamier than liquid eyeliners. You will also need a smudging brush to smudge out the eyeliner after application to create the smoky look.
For the best results, opt for dark colors such as black or brown, as they look best when smudged. You can also apply some mascara to fill out your lashes at the end. Ideally, when applying eyeliner, you should always tilt your face up and keep your gaze directed downwards, for maximum precision and symmetry.
4. Be Careful While Applying Mascara:
When applying the mascara, you should always start from the roots of the eyelashes and move slowly towards the tips. This will help add substantial volume to your lashes without weighing them down. After you have applied the first coating of mascara, wait for ten seconds and allow the product to settle and dry a little before going in for the second coat. This will keep your lashes from getting clumpy.
Use a tissue to wipe off any excess product from the wand before applying the mascara, as that will increase precision and make it easier to maneuver. You must also use a high-quality eyelash curler to curl your lashes before you make use of the mascara.
5. Add Depth and Dimension with Eyeshadow:
By applying some eyeshadow, you can give dimension to your eyes and add a bit of depth. However, first, you must ensure that you buy some high-quality makeup products, including eyeshadow brushes. Before applying the eyeshadow on your eyelids, you must use some primer to ensure that the product will stay on for a long time without creasing.
You can also cover your eyelids with white eyeliner before applying the eyeshadow, in order to create an even base for the eyeshadow and get a more vibrant and prismatic look. At the bottom of your eyes, under the lash line, you should use a darker shade of eyeshadow, which will help add greater depth and dimension to your eyes and make them look bigger and more prominent.
These are some of the tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your eye makeup. You should always invest in high-quality makeup products, manufactured by trusted brands, in order to keep your skin safe and get the best results.
