Applying eye makeup takes constant practice to bring out the best in your eyes. You first need to know on what works best for your eyes in order to have easier eye makeup applications. For your eyes, you need to have sufficient knowledge on mascara, eyeliner pencil, and powder eye shadow for a more perfect look.
Let's start with the mascara application. Before applying the mascara, you may consider curling your lashes first with a lash corner in order to open up the eyes. This step is really helpful in framing the eyes, especially if you have short lashes. To curl the eyelashes with the use of the lash curler, you can begin by squeezing in steps from the lash line for about ¾ toward the tip of the lashes. For the mascara, it is usually applied in two coats. Place your finger at the mid-lid or on your eyebrow and pull it up to hold the lid taut. Hold the wand in horizontal position and sweep on the mascara from the roots going to the ends. Only apply to the lash tips and roll the wand slightly as you start to move. And lastly, wiggle the wand from side to side in order to evenly distribute the mascara and have a very good end result.
There are many good mascaras in the market today. But before purchasing the mascara, make sure that it is rich in moisturizers. After the mascara application, allow it to dry in order to thicken the lash and prevent clumps. It usually takes 4-5 minutes for the lashes to dry. You have to be patient as a wet mascara can only ruin your makeup and turn all your efforts in vain. As you begin with the second coat, avoid blinking as it can cause the wet lash end to leave messy marks. Once the first application is already dry, apply the second coating. Carefully apply the mascara to the upper side of the lashes and wait for another few minutes to let it dry.
After applying the mascara, you can now focus on applying the eyebrow pencil. Before starting, you need to sharpen the pencil then lightly scribble it on the back of your hand in order to dull down the sharp portion of the eyebrow pencil. Draw thin lines in the exact direction of your brow in order to perfectly define its shape. Avoid drawing an outline around the brows as it will create a very unnatural look. It would also help if you find a good quality eyebrow pencil as it has firmer texture that could help the liner stay longer and prevent constant breaking.
And when it comes to your eye shadow application, the colors of the eye shadow must be perfectly blended on the lids. Eye shadow colors should be smooth and harmonious looking. To achieve this, you need three colors: the base color, the main color and the highlighter. Apply the base color first and then put the main color. And lastly, highlight the crease of your eyes for a more alluring effect. This only proves that it does not take a genius to applying eye makeup. All you need to do is follow the given steps and guides to have a very satisfying end result.
