Tips For The Perfect Eye Makeup
The way you apply your eye makeup can affect your overall appearance. Many women take the
smoky eye effect a bit too far and end up looking unattractive. Don't take the focus away from your
eyes- add to them! Makeup shouldn't hinder your appearance, it should add to it. The tips in the
article below will help you achieve the perfect eye makeup in a few simple steps.
Depending on your skin tone and eye color, different colors of eye shadow may or may not work for
you. It is imperative that you choose colors that complement you and not take focus away from your
eyes. Fair skinned people may notice that colors such as blue, silver and pink look great on them.
Darker skin tones will find that bronze colors, browns and greens look beautiful paired with their skin.
Your final selection should be made accordingly with your eye color. A good rule of thumb is always
that blue eyes look good with shades of blue, brown eyes match browns and greens look great with
green tones. These are just some of the basic ways you can select colors that work for you.
Many women think that their outfit has to match their makeup as well as their handbags. This is a
false idea that should only be followed if the colors you are wearing would complement your eyes and
skin tone. For example, if you are wearing a black and white outfit, by all means don't apply black eye
shadow. Your eye shadow should complement you as a whole person and not your outfit.
Remember the term, less is more? This is definitely undoubtedly true when it comes to applying
makeup. Many people think that applying a lot of eye shadow or adding a large smoky eye will make
a great impact. It usually makes a huge impact, but in a negative way. Your makeup should enhance
your eyelashes, skin tone and size of your eyes and not work against it.
For applying a good eye shadow effect, make sure that you choose three colors that complement
each other and are in three different shades (light, medium and dark). For example, consider
choosing silver (light), light blue (medium) and dark blue (dark) if you have fair skin. The lightest color,
which in this case would be silver, apply it from the crease of the brow in an arched fashion. Do this
lightly! This step is only to make your eyes pop three dimensional and to highlight the arch of your
If you have taken art class, you may remember that to make a three dimensional effect on any object,
you need a dark color to shadow it. This is very much the case with getting a proper effect on your
eyes too. Take the darkest colored eye shadow, which would be dark blue and apply it on the crease
of your eyes. The effect you should see is almost like a hamburger layer.
The medium color, in our example light blue, should be applied on the eyelid. This will complement
your eyelid and when you blink, it will look natural. Remember, use this color sparingly and don't rub it
to the point where the color looks really dark. Use enough to get your point across. If you have to use
a lot for the color to work, it means the brand you purchased isn't using high quality pigments. A high
quality eye shadow will contain enough colored pigments that one or two slow applications are
Blending is key in getting just the right effect. Where you see the borderlines of your eye shadow,
grab a cotton swab and slowly blend them together. Don't use circular motions to smear everything
together. That is what you want to avoid. Do this in a manner that makes your eyes look well blended
As you can see, applying the right amount of eye shadow is just common sense and a bit of practice.
Try this new art form and you will see how well it can work for you. Apply the tips from the article
above and you will be looking at a prettier you in the mirror.
