There are plenty of eye makeup tips out there that will either make you want to roll your eyes or pop them all together. Eye makeup can be tricky, and so, we will simplify things for you by giving some life-changing tips that will make putting on eye makeup a real feat.
For beginners, some may ask, what should be in my eye makeup kit? The short and long answer is that: you have to have primer, correct brushes, eye shadow, eyeliner, eyebrow make up, and mascara.
Some Things to Remember
Here are some eye makeup tips and tricks that you have to remember to achieve that flawless look that will either make your eyes pop or make them smoking hot.
1. Prepping is crucial
Priming will lead to more successful eye makeup. Creating a base will ensure that blending, later on, will not make that eye makeup patchy and that your eye shadow is creaseless and capable of lasting the entire day!
How to prime your eyelids?
Step 1: Using a dry sponge, lightly press your eyelids to remove any excess moisture or oils.
Step 2: Use a primer that will soak any moisture or residue from your eyelids. You may opt to use an oil-free or a matte primer to avoid those major crease lines showing up on your eye shadow.
Step 3: Set it by dusting it lightly with a setting powder.
2. Define them, eyebrows
Defined eyebrows are important to frame your face and your overall look. Eyebrows also draw attention to the face. Fill in your brows with a color that matches the natural color of your brows. Use feathery, light strokes and create upward brushstrokes that move towards the tail. Follow the natural arch of your brow to create a more natural look.
3. Know your brush, know your makeup
It is imperative that you know where each type of eye makeup goes. If you do, then almost a big chunk of the job is done. In the same way, if putting on eye makeup is war, then you should know what are the best weapons to use and how to use them.
