How you apply eye makeup speaks volumes about your appearance. From mascara to eyeliner, eye shadows can create a look that speaks volumes.
The eyes are the windows to the soul. Every emotion is in the eyes; they can show innocence, joy, drama; or be caring and soft. Eyes have a special power that can cast a seductive spell on the beholder. They can be mysterious and intriguing at the same time. They can be cold, warm, reflect the brilliance of the moon, or the radiance of the sun. So make that window display attractive, from first impressions to everyday looks.
Famous poetry by Lord Byron expressed the magic of the eyes when he wrote:
"She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;"
It doesn't matter if you have brown, hazel, blue, or green eyes. What matters is how you make them look appealing. Let's look at a few simple and easy-to-apply eye makeup techniques that you can do at home.
The power of pink is a look that is primarily sought after by women in their teens and early twenties. But how to achieve it? You will need soft pink eyeshadow on the inner lid and pink eyeshadow on the middle of the lid. Apply the same color on the inner crease. Use a deep red eyeshadow on the outer area and another color, perhaps a smoky brown, on the lower lash line.
There is now a wide array of eyeshadow powders to experiment with. Like the mineral make-up eye shadow. It can be applied wet-lined or dry to create a defined look. These shadows can be used on the eyelid for that stunning effect.
Creamy eyeshadows are available in squeeze tubes and used sparingly for maximum impact. Apply them close to the brow. If you are using a cream shadow, then you will find that it is better to use as little as possible. For a dramatic look, blend two different or contrasting colors with a cream shadow base. Want some shine? Top off with glittery dustings; with an applicator brush and some foam pads to blend in.
Most cream shadows are available in squeeze tubes and you can apply them on the lid as well as close to the brows. These eye shadow powders have a distinct advantage: they are easy to use and you can do it anywhere and anytime.
Eyes without mascara can be quite dull and boring. While too much will take away the life from the eyes, you will need to use it with care. There are many options to consider while shopping for mascara. There is tick mascara, black or dark ones, waterproof mascara, and then there are curling ones.
Use a type of mascara that will go with the dress you wear. You can use up to two coats of mascara to define your lashes very well. Avoid mascara that gives you a sadistic prison mate look or a heavy metal brand fan look. Instead, try eyeliner to heighten your fashion statement.
Whatever eye make-up you use, be sure it looks good on you and your personal style. Everyone chooses what to wear a little differently. Yet, when you begin to play with makeup, you have the power to create a look that speaks without you saying a word.
