We mostly look at people's eyes first when we meet someone. Read on how to have attractive eyes with some simple and quick make up. Remember to wash your face with a good face wash and pat dry before you begin.
Eye shadow: Select a good quality eye shadow which will stay longer. As a thumb rule, when you buy eye shadow, apply them on your hand to check how they look on your skin tone. This will also be a good caution for keeping out allergies. Try eye shadows that are crème based. They are easy to apply and remove. To begin your eye make up,divide your eyes to three areas,
• Inner Eye :This is the first half of your eye. Put a light colour to highlight the shape of your eyes. Try shades like light bronze, brown, light pink. A little glitter in the eye shadow does the magic.
• Outer eye : This is the second half of your eye. Try a darker shade to create a boundary. Try shades like dark bronze, gold, shimmering pink.
• Brow Bone highlight :This is the area below the end of your eyebrows . Use a light white or shiny cream colour shade to define your eyebrows. While shaped eyebrows are great, applying a light colour below them will enhance and show the shape of your eyebrow very well.
Eyelash : Unless required, refrain from using heavy eye lashes that will make your eyes look dull. Use a good quality water proof mascara and work by lifting up your eye lashes. Be careful when you apply mascara to your lower eyelashes. You could put a wet tissue in your under eye area to prevent from mascara sticking there.
Eyeliner : Use a liquid eyeliner with a good quality brush. The brush determines your ability to line your eyes. Begin with a thin line just about your upper eyelash and continue to the end. Allow it to dry and apply another coat. Depending on the occasion , you can thicken your eye line. Mostly leaving them thin, makes your eyes look simple.
Eye pencil : Applying an eye pencil is a very important step. An eye pencil can determine the way your eyes look without even any of the above make up. It is the most beautiful tool for a women. While most women apply by pulling the under eye area down, this can create wrinkles in future. The best way is to put your finger right below your eye and slowly apply the eye pencil. It is better to do this step with patience. Again a water proof pencil will be handy.
Eye mask : After you have removed your day's make up by applying some olive oil, wash your face and pat dry. Apply a good eye mask by grating some potatoes or simply leave two slices of cucumber and close your eyes. You could even wet some cotton in cold rose water and leave it on. This will give your eye the much needed rest and make it look fresh and clear the next day.
Having a facial tissue in your hand bag always helps. You might want to carry all your equipment in a small purse which has a mirror in it. Even when want to sneeze just after you apply your make up, do so. Don't worry, your basic make up will stay and a touch up should fix it up. Refrain from using your nails as they might remove a bit of your make up.
So have fun 'making up' and let your eyes do all the talking.
