Eye make-up

Use eye make-up to emphasize the eyes. The type of eye make-up varies depending upon the occasion, the time of the day (whether daytime or night) and also according to the shape and setting of your eyes. You have to first use the eye shadow, then the eyeliner, kohl pencil or kajal, and lastly your mascara. When applying eye make-up, it is best to do so in natural light.
1. Eye shadow: Eye shadow should be applied as close to the roots of the lashes as possible and then blended over the lid and outwards with a brush or your fingertips. Carry a little or the color around the outer corner and smudge it gently to give the eyes a soft look. Eye shadow, when applied and blended properly, helps accentuate your eyes. This is especially true if you have dark eyes.
2. Eyeliners: Eyeliners are available in pencil, liquid and cake varieties. Each type has its positive features and the one that you use would depend on your preference. Draw a very fine line with a pointed brush from the inner to the outer corner of your eye, without flicking upwards at the end. Make sure you apply the liner close to the roots of the lashes. If you want to experiment with colors, use different color eyeliners to bring out the natural color of your eyes. For example, if you have brown eyes, try using black or blue eyeliner.
3. Kajal or kohl pencil: Kajal looks great if you have dark eyes, especially suits Indian eyes. Kohl pencils or kajal can be used to color the inner rims of the lower lids.
4. Mascara: Mascara should always be applied last. When applying mascara, look down into a mirror held at chin level and first stroke the brush over the lashes. Then brush the lashes from root to tip, pushing them up, so that you have to look up into it. Mascara should be applied in several thin coats, allowing each coat to dry, before applying the next coat. Black or brown colors look good on our complexion.

  1. Have you tried pink shadow?
    Here's some advice: Line your inner bottom rim with black liner. Take a shimmery pink shadow, and brush some from the outer part of your eyelid (the part above your cheek) to the inner part of your eye, going just beneath the browbone. It will make your eyes pop and isn't too dramatic. Use lots of black mascara on your top lashes, and you're set

    If you like to apply liquid eyeliner, and want to get a fine line with a beautiful curve , try this: Note: Don't pull the eyelids at any point. Apply the eyeliner from the middle of the upper eyelid till the outer end. Repeat with other eyelid. then, apply eyeliner from the inner corner of the lid, till the middle.)Now run another stroke over it, from beginning to end,end with a small upward-tilt at the outer corner.
    The result: 2 coats ensure deeper color, and an even line, with a beautiful finish..

    If you want to make the appearance that you have big eyes, apply to under-eye. First do it from the outer bottom corner to the middle of that lower section. Use a very black or a brownish black color. Then, smear or smudge it with clean fingers, a small brush, or a Q-tip, for a smoky eye effect. Use lots of mascara. I use XXL Maybelline 2 step mascara, which costs about 5 bucks, and is really effective

    Before using eye shadow for eye makeup use a little amount of foundation on eyelids. It gives the best results like stay eye shadow for long-term period.

    For lower lashes, one has to be more careful so as not to smudge the under eye area and the wand is to be held vertically and mascara is applied from side to side. Less mascara is used on the lower lashes and extra color should be blotted off using the tissue paper

    Don't throw away cash on an expensive eye makeup remover! Find a pretty glass bottle and fill it with baby shampoo.

  14. Never go to sleep without removing mascara. When you take it off, make sure you don't drag the delicate skin around the eye area. Moisten a cotton wool ball with remover and stroke it over the lashes in a downward motion until they're free of all traces of make-up. Be gentle since, when you lose a lash it takes a couple of months for a new one to grow. If you're shedding more than a couple of lashes a day it could be that you're allergic to your eye make-up.

    To look glamorous, you need to know just how to apply makeup correctly, to achieve the desired, finished look. Learning how to put on eye makeup does not have to be a difficult process either.Use your fingers for working the foundation on one area of your face. It is better if you are moving your fingers in circular motion, and after you have finished this finger-walk, you can use sponge for the final working of the foundation.

    Apply your foundation first over your entire face before you start on your eye makeup. You need a good canvas to work with.Apply an eye shadow primer from lash to brow to make your eye makeup last. You can skip this step if you prefer. Using a makeup brush or eye shadow sponge, apply the medium shade from lashes to the crease of your eyelid.

  19. If you apply a little powder on the lashes between the coats of mascara, they will appear thicker

    Dust a light shade all over the lid and up to the brow bone. This helps even out skin tone and acts a base.

  21. , Kajal is a form of eye makeup, which has been in vogue since the ancient times. It's the womenfolk of India who mostly apply kohl to darken their lower eyelid. However, it is also applied in case of children's and earlier, even the Indian men used to wear kajal.

    To make the whites of your eyes look brighter, use a light blue pencil under the eyes. Blue eye shadow lightly applied under the eyes works just as well.

    Apply mascara and start with the outer lashes and work your way to the inner lashes. That will make them look thicker.

    When applying any color to brows, apply with short strokes in the same direction in which the hair grows. Brush lightly again with brow brush.

    Mascara makes your eyelashes look thicker, blacker and longer. It opens up your eyes and makes them look glamorous.

    Choose a thick, dense brush and wiggle it at the base of your lashes to create length. Avoid runny eyes by applying waterproof mascara.

    - Hold the corner of your eye and follow as close to your lashes as possible with eyeliner from the inside to outside corner. On the bottom lid, start from the middle and draw a line to the outer corner; smudge the line lightly with a soft Q-tip.

  28. if you want to improve the look of your eyes, putting on mascara will surely help make you stand out. If you do not at the moment include wearing mascara in your make-up regimen, you might ponder over it.
