This beauty guide will help any newbie learn how to do eye makeup beautifully and adequately from here on out. Are you ready to learn some exclusive eye makeup application tips and tricks?
Always start with an eye primer
Eye primer aids in the creation of a smooth canvas for eye makeup. After the primer has dry, apply an eyeshadow foundation to help the eyeshadow adhere better to the skin. A concealer or foundation will suffice if you don't have an eyeshadow base.
Start with four basic shades
For beginners, start with four basic shades to achieve an everyday natural look.
All you need is a highlight 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone, a matte mid-tone shade, a contour 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone, and a matte black shade. You can also use a facial highlighter if you have one.
For application, you'll need a small flat eyeshadow brush, a small and medium-sized blending brush.
An eye shadow complementing the eye shape is significant. Colored eye shadow gives a smoky look to a wide variety of faces. Apply the lightest shade with your flat brush to the inner corner of your eyes. It is where the majority of the product should be, and you can then easily blend outwards. In addition, eye shadow will highlight any eye shadow and enhance any eye shape. Before applying, make sure to tap your brush to remove any excess product.
Trick: Dip the brush's tip in water just enough to dampen it. Then, smear it on the eyeshadow and apply it again in the inner corners of the eyes. You'll be astounded by how pigmented it is. When you finished, use the same color to highlight the arch of your brows. Now we'll move on to the mid-tone shade. Apply the eyeshadow above the crease with a blending brush, blending from the outer corner inwards.
Apply the contour shade to the outer half of the eye, starting from the outer corner and blending into the crease. Please avoid mixing too much because the mid-tone shade should always be higher than the contour shade.
Now that you've completed your eyelid makeup, you can move on to the bottom of the eye. Apply the mid-tone color and contour shade together on the bottom lash line, beginning at the outer corner and working your way inward until it meets the highlighter.
Apply the matte black eyeshadow to the outer corners of the eyes and close to the bottom lash line to complete the look. It will give the eyes a more dramatic appearance.
Of course, it won't look as nice if your lashes aren't perfect. An essential aspect of eye makeup is eyeliner and mascara. Eyeliner is used to draw and create a natural eyelid. Mascara has been used to thickening and lengthening lashes. There are several types of mascara on the market, and each one has its purpose. A typical mascara is a black brush with a dark-colored pigment.
Don't forget the false eyelashes! You can get a dramatic look by using glue or magnetic lashes. As you can see, this basic natural eye makeup is quite simple, and with some practice, you will be able to master it. Once you've got this technique, blending colors and creating new looks will be as simple as eating pie!
