Eye makeup is used to create dramatic or natural looks which make you look stunning for a special occasion, proper application of eye makeup is a useful skill that can both impress your peers and help you look and feel your best. The basic concept of any eye shadow design is to shape and shade in well-blended progression of light to dark colors. Three key points to keep in mind:
- Light colors will highlight or emphasize shallow areas.
- Dark colors will recede or minimize fuller, more prominent areas.
- Always load your brushes with a small amount of color since it is easier to add more eye shadow than to remove it.
You can do your eye makeup first and then apply foundation or concealer to the rest of the face afterward. This will allow you to remove any eye shadow which may have flaked onto the area underneath your eyes, avoiding a lot of frustration. Prep your eye area with foundation and/or concealer and set with a dusting of powder.
Below are instructions on how to apply eyeshadow design. Whether you want to use just two or up to four colors (more than four tends to get too complicated and the results tend to be muddy looking unless blending is extremely precise) this systematic guide will help you create a classic look, which you can tone down or build upon. It is best to finish every eye design with eyeliner and mascara.
Instructions for perfect eyeshadow
- In order to find the perfect area to place your brush, look straight ahead into a mirror, find the highest point of your eyebrow, and then follow an imaginary vertical line going down toward the eye’s crease. Set the brush down into the crease precisely on the imaginary line, begin blending in a slightly outward direction that follows the true crease, and just above, to where the brow bone begins.
- Next, move inward (think windshield-wiper motion) ,in the crease and along the edge of the brow bone. Do not blend all the way into the inner corner of the eye unless your eyes are noticeably wide-set.
- Curl your lashes. Use an eyelash curler to grip your upper lashes. Hold the clamp for about five seconds. Accessing your lashes is easiest if you half-close your eyes. Remember, always curl before you apply mascara you can apply a little or a lot, and there are many different brands and formulas for volume, length and definition. Find a product you are happy with. Start at the base of your upper lashes and slowly sweep upward. For a more dramatic effect, apply mascara to the lower lashes as well. If you want to apply multiple coats, do it while the first coats of mascara are still wet applying a new coat to dry mascara will result in clumps.
By following these simple points, you can look stunning with this eye shadow and you can simply rock the floor.
