Your eyes are the windows to your soul, show your inner beauty by enhancing your outer beauty. I love to wear eye makeup because it makes your eyes look so refreshed, awake, bright and full of life. I would like to share 5 tips that I use in my makeup routine each day that you will love.
A little concealer around and under your eye can be a great thing, especially if you are getting older. I use a concealer slightly lighter than my skin tone, under my eyes and also on my lids. Concealer on your lids can be a good base, if you choose to use eye shadow as well.
If you have never tried a dramatic look with your eye liner, you should. I personally love the cat eye look. You can use a pencil, liquid or gel liner for this. In my experience pencil liner has a softer look but is easier to draw on. It also is less irritating to the eyes. Gel liner goes on smooth and has a darker sultrier look. Gel liner last longer in my opinion but it can be irritating if you get it in your eyes. Also you should use a makeup remover pad to get the liner off. If you want your eyes to appear wider you can line the bottom of your eyes with white pencil liner to wear eye shadow.
Even if you don’t like to wear eye shadow, there are subtle colors that enhance your face like pink and a shimmery kind that is close to your complexion. I love light pink shadows because they are so feminine and flirty. It instantly makes you look more youthful. Beware of too much pink if it’s a metallic, or really bright like fuchsia. In my opinion glitter should be left for teens and twenties unless you’re going to a Halloween party or its disco night.
I love mascara because it makes your eyes pop. It makes your whole face light up, when your eyes look brighter. When applying mascara never over pump the wand because it will dry out your mascara faster. If you don’t want a dramatic look you can just apply one coat lightly. If however, you are going for a dramatic look, you can apply two coats. Just be careful not to make it look too think like a raccoon. Water proof mascara is great because it helps the mascara clump less, and also you can wear it all day with little touch ups.
