There are many women that have no clue how to apply make up properly. Some women know just the basics, there are those that don’t know anything at all, and there are those that go to parlors to get the job done. Eye makeup is definitely a toughie. Women have diverse eye shapes, sizes and colors. This makes applying makeup on the eyes hard. There is no definite one rule that applies to everyone however with some basic steps, your eye makeup should turn out fine. All you need are three eye shadows, be sure to pick those that complement your skin tone and an eye color to shape your eye.
First thing you need to do is to apply your highlight color within your brow bone and your eye lids. For highlight colors, shimmery ones are usually the best ones. Apply just a small amount to the duct of your eye. This will certainly wake you up and make you feel alive. This also helps to draw attention to your eyes.
Crease brushes are handy to use. You can begin by applying them on the outer corner of your eyes. The crease of your eye is where you can sweep the mid tone. It is important that it blend with the highlight color and you can achieve this by going back in circular motions.
By again starting on the outer corner, apply the contour color. Be sure to go along the lash line and only about two-thirds of the way. You then go up to the crease and merge with the mid tone. Lastly, use an eye liner on top of your lashes. It’s all that simple and quick. You will have fabulous eye makeup.
Looking natural, even with makeup is one of the latest trends today. In Hollywood, actresses are wearing the so called nude lips. Somehow, this natural look accents the beautiful face in another way. The purpose of this is just to eliminate the visibility of some blemishes, dark circles and the like. There are a few steps to do when applying makeup to achieve this look.
You will need foundation, blush, eye shadow and lipstick. The foundation is the first makeup that you will apply. This should depend on the color of your skin. If you have a fair complexion, you can use light foundations. For darker skin, light to medium tones work best. Apply a generous amount on your face and neck. You will know if you have the right color of foundation if it has a disappearing effect on your skin once applied.
For eye color, use earth colors like brown, olive green and the like. Apply just the right amount on the eyelids. If you want to use eyeliner, you could still do so, but just draw a line close to the upper lashes. For your blush, wear sheer colors for these look more natural than opaques. A little touch of color will look great, just like how you would look when you blush a little when it’s hot. Finally, for your lipstick, do not use bright reds or pinks. Once again, you must go light. You can also just wear lip gloss to complete your all natural look.
