Beginners Guide to Eye makeup
If you’re new to makeup, or you don’t play much with eyeshadows, or eye makeup products, creating any eye makeup look can be pretty confusing, and oftentimes confusion leads up to messed up makeup look, and discourages you to try it out again. In today’s post I’m sharing 5 really amazing eye makeup tips that every makeup lover, especially beginners need to know. These tips make a world of a difference, and makes it a whole lot easier for you to do your own makeup and be more creative, with less makeup mishaps.
Blending Brush Powder
If you wear makeup you need a good blending brush, doesn’t matter you’re a beginner or not. Invest or find a good blending brush, that blends out your eyeshadow seemlessly and creates a very well-blended look. I personally love Real Techniques Base Shadow brush and Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease brush.
Start with neutral eyeshadows, neutral eyeshadows are always good to start with, they’re forgiving and also easy to work with. The best way to practice eye makeup is starting with neutrals, plus they’re perfect for day to day life.
If you’re more adventurous and you want to try darker and bolder looks, use tape to your advantage. If you struggle with winged eyeliner, tape is your best friend in that case too. Align the tape from your lower lashline to the end of your brow and get the perfectly catty smokey eye or winged eyeliner. It’s totally up to you how bold or soft you want it. There’s always a blending brush to make thing softer.
True Color Application
If you find that eyeshadows don’t look true to color on your lids, or you’ve darker lids, it’s always a good idea to use a tinted primer, something like mac paint pots or nude/white eyepencils as a base on the lids, to get the shadow to look as true to color and opaque as possible.
Attention to little details
When you create an eye makeup look paying attention to little details makes all the difference. Add highlight shade in the inner corners of the eyes to brighten up the eyes, use black eye pencil in the inner rims to make your eyes look smaller and sassier, but to make your eyes look fresh, wide open or bigger use a nude or white eye pencil in the water liner, I personally like nude better, but that’s personal preference. Tightline with black eye pencil, it makes you lashes look fuller. Little things, that make such a big difference.
Once you get these techniques down, I find that you feel confident enough to play with makeup on your own, and show your own creativity. At the end of the day makeup is the art of self-expressions.
