Getting your eyeliner right is one of the most important steps of eye makeup. Here are some eye makeup techniques for beginners that should be definitely followed.
Use a makeup remover so that your eyelids are oil/grease-free to ensure a smudge-proof application with the eyeliner.
To get that perfect wing while using an eyeliner, keep your eyes open, look straight into the mirror, and line the outer corners of the eyes.
Make sure you apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible so that it appears to be a part of your natural lashline.
To achieve a soft smoky eye, go for pencil eyeliner as it tends to be softer and creamier. Apply it on the eyelids and smudge it with your finger so that it looks more natural and gorgeous.
As you age, you might be reluctant to use an eyeliner. You don’t have to stop using the eyeliner, rather, opt for more subtle colors, such as brown and grey, and apply lots of mascara to complement the look.How can we talk about eye makeup and not talk about mascara? Here are some important tips for proper mascara application.
Start applying the mascara from the roots of your lashes and not the tips. This technique gives you enough volume and doesn’t weigh down your eyelashes.
To prevent your lashes from looking clumpy, coat on layers of mascara, depending on the desired volume.
To make your mascara last longer, avoid pumping the wand while pulling out the mascara. Instead, swirl it. This also doesn’t dry out the mascara.
In case you are using an eyelash curler after applying the mascara, ensure the mascara on the eyes is semi-wet and not dry.
While applying the mascara on the lower lashes, place a tissue paper right under your lashes to prevent smudging your makeup.Invest in good quality brushes. They last for years and ensure better blending. The flat brushes are for depositing the eyeshadow and the fluffy brushes are for blending.
If you want the eyeshadow color to really stand out, then use a white pencil on the eyelids just before applying the eyeshadow. This technique makes the colors pop out.
While creating smoky eyes, use creamy eye pencils as the base for a stronger/intense effect. If you are going for a brown smoky eye, opt for a brown pencil as the base.
