Whether you are ready to go out for that hot date, or you just want to look more striking in your day to day life, you will find that it is time for you to start looking for eye makeup. Though our eyes are often described as the most striking feature, many people simply disregard them because they see makeup as being something that is too hard or too time consuming to do. Take some time and think about how some of the following tips can help you; eye makeup is much easier when you have few rules and tips to get you started.
One thing that can really bring your eyes stand out is the effective use of mascara, but for mascara to be really effective, you need to make sure that it is applied evenly and without any globs or smudges. The goal is going to be for eyelash strands that are long, dark and separate from each other. If you want to apply your mascara evenly, make sure that you start at the base of the lashes and bring the mascara wand up and out. A small wiggle of the wand will help keep things even and afterwards, the end of the lashes can be finished of with a lash comb. Another tip that can be useful when you are in a hurry is to make sure that any excess mascara is being wiped off from the wand before you use it.
When you go to do your eye makeup, make sure that your eyes are prepped with concealer. Concealer will help you cover up any discoloration under your inner eyes and it can also help camouflage bags under your eyes. Apply a few dots of concealer to your skin and then pat it into smoothness. A lot of people forget this step and the result is that even if they do a good job, they end up having relatively uneven results.
When you go to apply eye shadow, you might find that you are little concerned about what color to choose. The truth of the matter is that using any one color, even if it is a relatively sedate one, can give an effect that is a little too bold or pointed. A three toned shadow that you can apply effectively is something that can be very helpful in this case. You can allow the shades to blend into each other to give you a dramatic look and doing this in bold colors can be perfect for night time while using milder shades is something that can be better for daytime wear.
If you want to make your eyes brighter, you will find that you can get some good results through using a highlighter. You can use a gold or pink highlighter to draw a V shape that follows the corner of your eye; essentially you are bracketing your eyes with color and then smudging it down. While this can be dramatic, you will be delighted as how lovely it can look.
Take some time and consider what your goals are when it comes to eye makeup; this is something that can make huge difference to the way you look and the image that you project.
