Eyes are the focal point of a womans face. Because of this women need to take the time to create beautiful eye makeup. Unfortunately, the skin around the eyes is thin and it is prone to several conditions that make applying eye makeup difficult to do, especially as we age. Fortunately there are some tricks that you can follow to improve your results.
One of the most common problems that women have with eye makeup is that it can accentuate fine lines and crapiness around the eyes. One of the best ways to fix these problems is to apply a moisturizer to the eye lids in the morning, in the evening, and/or before you apply a new coat eye makeup. What has worked for me is using a night time firming cream around my eyes. Put a little bit on your ring finger and then gently smooth it over your upper and lower lids, as well as applying it to the skin around your eyes. This will help to revitalize your eyes, as well as tighten and lift the skin around your eyes.
Create Beautiful Eyelashes
If you have skimpy eye lashes, or if you have blonde eye lashes, then your most challenging eye makeup problem is probably creating thicker looking eye lashes. To plump up your eye lashes try these steps. First of all use an eye shadow to line your eyes. Push the shadow into your lash line to create the illusion of a thicker lash line. Next curl your eye lashes. Finally apply a healthy coat of mascara.
Create an Open Eye
If you want to make your eyes look bigger and more open then you will want to use this trick. First of all you will want to line your top lash line with an eye liner. Then you will want to only line half of your lower lash line. Start at the outside edge of your lower lash line and sweep the line to the center of your lash line.
When you are creating a fresh natural look, or when you are trying for a smoky eye, you will want to use a light tone to highlight the area of your eye right below your eye brow. If you are trying for a natural look then you will want to use a soft eye color shade like pink, peach, or beige depending on your skin tone. If you are trying for a smoky look then you will want to use a light shade eye shadow that compliments the darker tones that you are using.
Close Set Eyes
If you have close set eyes then you can use your eye makeup to make them look farther apart. To do this you will want to shade the inside corners of your eyes with lighter tones of eye shadows and then use a darker shade on the outside section of your eyes.
