Good eye makeup has the potential to change the way you look. It can either accentuate the features of your face or weighing down your facial makeup if not done properly.
Here are a few eye makeup secrets to make you look ravishing.
1. Choose the right color for eye shadow
You may be an expert at applying eye shadow, but if you don’t pick the right color, your efforts will be in vain. Eye makeup experts claim that beautiful eyes can be accentuated by picking a color that is exactly the opposite of the eyes.
For example, if the color of your eyes is blue, pick any shade of orange for your eye makeup. Alternatively, if your eyes are green, use undertones of red and maroon. It is believed that using eye makeup that is similar in color to your eyes will negate itself out without any impact.
2. Line your eyebrows
Many women spend hours after their eye makeup, but they conveniently neglect their brows. It is a common misconception that once your brows are plucked and shaped, your job is done. But this is far from the truth.
Using an eyebrow liner to define your brows will go a long way in making your eye makeup look stunning. Unless you already have very thick and bushy eyebrows, don’t forget to add volume to your eyebrows by using a liner.
3. Make your eyes look younger with a bronzer
One of the main concerns for middle-aged women is that they want their eyes to look young. They may be able to apply anti-aging creams on their faces, but it is difficult to give wrinkles around the eyes the same kind of treatment.
One of the tips you can use to make your eyes look young and ravishing is to use a bronzer on the area between your lashes and brows. This will produce an illusion that the skin around your eyes is taut and young. If your eyes are light, use a darker shade of bronzer and vice versa.
4. Dodge the heavy dramatic look
Many women make their eyes look heavily dramatic when they use eye makeup. But you can steer clear of the dramatic eyes and use eye makeup to give your eyes a fresh, light, and crisp look too. Whether you are using a liquid eyeliner or an eye pencil, line only the top area of your lashes for a day look.
Line both top and bottom lash lines only if you are stepping out for an evening event. This eye makeup secret will make your eyes look ravishing without letting anyone know that you have used any makeup at all.
5. Make small eyes look large
Many women have the misconception that making small eyes look large involves using dark colors to add more focus to the eye area. But this is not true.
Experts claim that using light and pastel eye shadow shades from the outside area of your eyelids to the inner corner can actually create the illusion of wider eyes. You can also apply a light-colored eyeliner to the lower rim and smudge it well with black or dark liner running through the upper rim of your eye.
