Ever had those moments when you are literally in a hurry to get out of the house for a night out with the girls and there is not time to have a full fledged make up session yet you still want to look glamorous?
“Just focus on your eyes,” says celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern. “You can change your look, add drama, or go from day to night in about 60 seconds.”
Below are the freshest ways to score attention-grabbing eyes in no time. Start with the lashes. The tip to having beautiful eyes is to have eye-opener lashes - long sweeping lashes that will bring out the colour of your eyes. Below is how you can achieve such a look.
Get the wand as close to the root of your lashes as possible, and then wiggle it up in a back-and-forth motion, instead of just sweeping out. This way, you will even out the mascara. The thicker it gets, the smokier your eyes will become.
If your eyes look good when they are dark, this tip is the way to go. But if your eyes require just a bit of the beauty ink, dip a little bit of the tip into the bottle and use the same tactic.
You know how to line your top lid, but when’s the last time you took an eyeliner to your lower lash line? “Lining the lower lid with a lighter shade gives you an instant eye-opening effect,” says Stern.
GOOD NEWS! You don’t have to stress over pairing the right shades, thanks to new dual-ended liners that do the colour matching for you. Try a bright coloured eye pencil on one side and white on the other.
“Highlighting the lower lash line area with white brightens your eyes,” says Stern.
Lastly, if you think smoky eyes are too dark and heavy, you’ll love the new take - jewel tones.
Rich gem-coloured shadows (purples, greens, blues, and golds) look good on everyone, and they are less harsh than grays and blacks.
Here’s how them; use a dense brush to deposit colour on your lid, from the lash line up to your crease, using small back and forth strokes. Then go in with another brush and apply a slightly darker shade on the outer part of the lid, blending slightly into the crease. Building colour gradually over the lid and smudging your liner are essential.
