A person’s eyes have the ability to show one’s true personality and emotions. When you put on eye makeup, whatever colour you have decided, they can end up being the central point of the face and grab anyone’s attention. Thus, it is important that 50% of your makeup should be entirely dedicated to your eyes. However, majority of women today find it very challenging to put on a decent eye makeup. So instead of enhancing their eyes’ natural beauty, they end up looking unflatteringly covered by layers of eye shadows, eyeliner and mascara.
You have seen celebrities and they seem to have the most beautiful makeups as every feature of their face is well accentuated. They all owe it to their reliable make-up artists. Unfortunately, regular women cannot afford to pay a professional every day to do their make up for them. So the best option is to put it themselves and they just have to learn how to apply eye makeup like a professional. Do not worry because it is not as difficult as you may think. Just study and practice the basics and you can begin there. Once you have mastered the skills, you will find that learning the more complicated eye make up styles is easier.
Here are the fundamentals you need to learn how to apply eye makeup like a professional.
1. You should first apply a concealer around your eyes as this will cover up any dark circles or even wrinkles you may have. It would be best if you utilize an applicator brush instead of your fingers so as to maintain hygienic standards.
2. An eye make up is considered effective when it can stay long so always apply an eye base. If you are confused on what colours to use, opt for lighter ones for daily use and darker shades during night outs or club parties. Some women who want to play it safe based their eyeshadow colours which would work together with their hair colour but other women who intend to show their rebel side, apply colours that would contrast them instead.
3. Then, pick up your eyeliner and line up beginning from the middle part of the eye until the outer part. If you want to achieve that dramatic look, apply on top and on the bottom.
4. Wait for your eyeliner to dry so as not to smudge it before you apply the mascara. This piece of eye make up tool can extend one’s lashes, curl it or even darken your lashes. Now you can have those lengthy lashes you have long wanted. Begin applying it with a single stroke from the very base part of the eyelashes up until its tip. Add another two coats for definition. An eyelash curler can also be used to make the eye pop even more. Then enhance your brow with an eyebrow pencil.
Being knowledgeable on the basics of how to apply eye makeup like a professional provides you with endless opportunities to try out different styles and techniques. Now, you will have different looks that will suit you for whatever the occasion and event it may be. Displaying your personality through your eyes is now more fun with your new found make up skills.
