Do you want to apply your own eye makeup while still having that professional look? Some find it quite difficult but here are some tips on how to do it right.
Use a primer which helps you smooth and prepare the eye area for the make up application. The primer also helps in keeping the makeup on for a long time and keeps the eye from creasing. You can apply it all over the eyelid using your ring finger, tapping and blending it all over the lid. Make sure to get it in all corners.
Get a concealer that matches your skin tone. If you have darker areas on your face slightly darker than your skin tone, best to use this. Tap right on the bone underneath the eye and blend upward. Make sure to get into the inner corners because they have a lot of darkness .You can use a concealer brush or a finger.
Apply your base eye shadow. Choose one that is one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. With a fluffy brush, cover the entire eyelid with the shade and get into the corners as well. Make sure no part is heavier than the other.
You can now apply the crease eye shadow which is slightly darker than the one you used first. Start with the outer corner of the eye, place down the brush and work in only half way of the eye lid. Since you are going into the crease, bring it down slightly along the lash line in almost a “v” motion.
Apply the inner crease shadow which will be two to three shades darker than the one used before. With the eye half open, choose the deepest part of the eyelid and with the use of a brush, tap and make a smaller “v” on top of the one you made before.
The brow highlighter which make the eye look wider, and hides those little hairs underneath the eyelash if one does tweezing can be applied at this stage.
You can now apply the eye liner.
The last step here is the application of mascara. Start from the very root, the base of the lash line and wiggle your way up towards the tips. Wiggling helps keep the clumps from forming.
