The eyes are the window to the soul, as people say, and they are the brightest and the most beautiful features in a woman’s face. Whenever you put on your eye makeup, your aim should always be to make your eyes look brighter. You can achieve this by selecting the right colours for your eyeshadow and creating the right blend of eyeshadow for your eyes.
Before putting on eye makeup, prime your lids first with eye cream for protecting the sensitive skin of your eyelids, and then dab on a little foundation over them. The foundation will make sure that your eyeshadow will last for hours.
The colours you choose for your eyeshadow should either match the colour of your eyes or provide a contrast to it. Your eyeshadow palette should be composed of three shades: a light colour such as taupe for your base shadow, a darker highlighter for the crease of your eyes, and the main colour for your eyelid that is a shade lighter than your highlighter. The key to making your eyeshadow work is to blend in these three colours.
After you are done with your eyeshadow, you can start putting on the other elements of your eye makeup, applied to the eyebrows and the eyelashes. Your eyebrows give character to your eyes, so you should not neglect them when you are putting on eye makeup. Brush them with a brow brush and then shape them with eyeliner. As for your eyelashes, the proper application of mascara on them will do a lot in making your eyes pop. Make sure that your kajal eyeliner pencil is sharp and matches the shade of your mascara.
To finish it off, line your eyelids just under the lashes with eyeliner. Also, use smudge-proof and waterproof kajal, so that it will not run if ever tears come to your eyes, especially when you are wearing contact lenses. Special occasions require special touches on your eye makeup and in that case, you can put a little amount of shimmer on your brow bone.
You can further brighten your eyes by drawing a dot or two with white eye kajal or eyeshadow on the inner edge of your eyes.
Another thing you should remember when putting on eye makeup is to go for balance. If you are wearing bright red lipstick, tone down your eye makeup.
