Eye makeup can seem complicated, but with a little practice and the right tips, you can achieve a stunning look in no time. In this step-by-step guide, I will explain how to make up your eyes so that they stand out and look incredible.
Step 1: Preparation
Before starting to make up your eyes, you must prepare your skin. Be sure to cleanse and tone your face before applying any product. It’s also important to apply a foundation and concealer to achieve an even canvas for your eye shadow.
Step 2: Shadow Base
Apply a base shadow all over the lid to help the eye shadow adhere and stay throughout the day. You can use a cream eyeshadow or an eyeshadow primer.
Step 3: Eyeshadow
Now is the time to apply the eye shadow. Begin by applying a light, neutral shadow to the entire eyelid, from the lashes to the brows. This will help create an even base for the rest of the eyeshadow.
Next, choose an eyeshadow of your choice to apply to the mobile eyelid. If you are looking for a natural look, go for soft brown tones. If you want something bolder, consider brighter or more saturated colors.
Apply the eyeshadow on the mobile eyelid and blend towards the crease. Use an eyeshadow brush to help blend the colors. If you want to add more dimension to your eyes, apply a darker shade in the crease and blend out.
Step 4: Eyeliner
Now is the time to apply the eyeliner. There are several eyeliner options, including pencils, liquids, and gels. If you’re a beginner, you may want to start with an eye pencil.
Begin by applying the liner to the upper lash line. If you want to make your eyes look bigger, you can apply the liner just beyond the lash line. For a more dramatic look, try a winged eyeliner.
Step 5: Mascara
Mascara is an important part of eye makeup. Begin by applying a coat of mascara to your upper lashes. Then, apply the mascara to your lower lashes, making sure not to apply too much product to avoid smudging under your eyes.
If you want to add more volume or length to your lashes, consider using a waterproof mascara or a fiber-filled lash formula.
Step 6: Eyebrows
Eyebrows can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your eyes. Use an eyebrow pencil or gel to fill in your brows and define them.
