Effective Eye Makeup Techniques

Posted by FE Beauty on 8/8/2014 to Beauty Tips

For many years, women have been defining their eyes with various eye makeup products. Even today, women are using makeup to accentuate their eyes. They like to experiment with their makeup styles. It is essential to apply your eye makeup the right way. Here are few tips on how to apply eye makeup:

Always start with a clean face before you apply any makeup. Cleanse or wash your face first because extra oils and dirt from the day before may cause your eye makeup to slide off and stick on to sticky spots around your eyes. Then choose your makeup products carefully like moisturizer, concealer, eyeshadow, foundation, eyeliner, mascara or other cosmetics you use. The products you choose should go well with your skin type. If your skin is oily, you should avoid using oil-based products. Women who have dry skin should avoid using very matte formulas.

Before applying your eye makeup, be sure your skin is not too oily or too dry around the eyes. If the skin around your eyes is oily, it may leads to smudging, while if it is too dry, you should use a good moisturizing cream onto the skin around your eyes. This will help your eye makeup to stay in place and prevent any smudging. You should use an eye makeup primer or concealer before applying any other eye makeup products. Concealers will help you hide your dark spots or any blemishes. It also holds your eye makeup for throughout the day.

Make sure you apply a little amount of foundation around your eyes, before you apply your other eye makeup. Foundations are the key for a long-staying beautiful eye makeup. Now use your eyebrow pencil before applying eye makeup. Eyebrows give a proper frame to your eyes and are essential to your overall look. Always choose an eyebrow pencil that is one shade lighter than your natural hair color. But if you have blonde hair, your brows should be little darker than your hair. Now apply eyeliner. If you are choosing eyeliner for daytime, go with a brown shade. Line your upper lid and get as close to your eyelashes as possible. Do the same for bottom eyelashes. You should use a Q-tip lightly to smear out any hard edges. Then you need to apply a highlighter for the inner corner of your eyes. Be sure the highlighter has some shimmer. For a normal daytime look, choose eyeshadow shades such as brown and other earth shades. Be sure you curl your eyelashes before applying your mascara. Highlighting your eyelashes will make you look much prettier. For a daytime function, apply a brown mascara to highlight your lashes. For a more dramatic makeup for night, use a black mascara..
