Eye Makeup Application

 
It’s back to school and you want to look your best.  Here are some back to school makeup tips that will leave a great impression.
According to Eye Shapes
Each eye shape can be enhanced if needed, with placement of eyeshadow. Small eyes can look larger and bulging eyes can be recessed a little. Wide apart eyes can have the illusion of being closer together. I trust these simple explanations can help with your eye shadow application.
SMALL EYES. to recognise this as your shape, there seems to be very little space between lashes and eyebrows, so we need to give the appearance of a much larger eye. Apply a light colour on the eye lid.
Use a darker shade in the socket (or crease) of eye and bring this colour to the outer corner to lengthen eye area. With a dark toned eyeliner, outline eye, intensifying colour slightly at outer edges of eye, then slightly smudge. Use a light highlighter along the brow bone to add width to eye.

DEEP SET EYES . This type appears like a hooded eye. Place a light coloured shadow over entire lid, and apply a highligher along the brow bone line. Use a darker toned shadow, and begin at the socket line and blend colour out above the crease to recess the area.

Use a small amount of eyeliner, in a thin line for definition only along top lid and 2/3’rds along lower lid blending towards the outer edge.
NORMAL eyes. If you are fortunate enough to have this shape you can be as adventurous as you like. What you should be aiming for with eye makeup is to make your eyes look even more attractive by giving them
strength with the help of eyeliner pencil. A pale colour can be blended on lid while a darker shade is smoothed into the outer corners and socket line to give more depth and character. Finish off with a coat of mascara.

AGEING EYES can look years younger with the help of soft contouring. Use eyeliner pencil around the outer corner of the eyes, making sure that the line is kep thin. Avoid frosted shadows completely. Apply a soft toned shadow, like a mossy green, light brown or grey with a hint of blue in it, to the outer eye area, keeping the colour close tothe lashes. Use a soft peach colour on your inner top lid. Mascara oftens looks too thick and unnatural on older eyes, so try to have lashed tinted instead OR apply mascara lightly.

PROTRUDING EYE – the goal here is to recess the eye lid, from seemingly to protrude. Use a dark toned eye shadow and blend this over the eye lid, fading colour away near eye socket. Apply eyeliner along top
lid, and lightly smudge. On lower lid, draw eyeliner at outer corner only and smudge softly. Apply highligher on brow line. Please dont use light or frosted colours on eye lid, as this will make eyes pop out futher. With this eye shape, finish off with some navy or deep grey pencil on inner rims to help make the eyeballs appear smaller.
CLOSE SET eye shape. These need a dark shadow blended into out half of the eyes to give illusion that they are further apart. Start by drawing your pencil out a little just above natural eye crease. now blend a strong colour into the outer area. The inner top lid area can
be left natural or a pale colour can be used if you like. When applying mascaras, brush your top lashes outwards, concentrating on the colour with an extra coat on outer lashes.

ASIAN EYE SHAPE – usually has a minimal eye lid and eyes are wide space. Gently brush a light or neutral colour over eye area and blend towards nose area. Using a darker shadow, apply to lid, starting along lash line, and fading the colour upwards and out to a half-way pint between lash and eyebrow.

Apply eyeliner close to lashes to give appearance of thickened lash line. Line the lower lid and smudge to soften the line.

WIDE SET EYES can appear closer set and more attractive if you emphasise the inner eye area with colour to draw eyes together. Apply eyeliner pencil all way across the bottom lid with only a tiny extension on the outer cornes. Apply any strong coloured shadow to
your outer socket line, but instead of extending it up and out, angle it towards your inner brows. Further enhance this with a lighter shade on your inner lid and complete the look with mascara concentrating on inner lashes.

DROOPY EYES. These need to be lifted at the sides with the help of clever shading on the outer areas of the top lid. A little extra eyeliner slanted upwards on the corners and further blended and subtly extended with shadow plus extra mascara on the top lashes.

Eyes Trick and Makeup Tips

  • If you’re going to line your eyes but want them to look bigger, line only the top. But if you want to line the bottom too, line just the outer half.
  • Another tip for eyes to appear bigger: Line your eyes with white eyeliner. Darker colors make your features smaller; consequently, black eyeliner would make your eyes appear smaller.
  • Put your pencil eyeliner in the freezer for awhile before applying it. The tip will be more hard and make the eyeliner easier to apply.
  • To give the appearance of wide-set eyes (eyes that are further apart), apply eye shadow/liner on the outer part of your eyes; vice versa for a desired appearance of close-set eyes (eyes that are closer together).
  • For a modern version of liquid liner, dip your eyeliner brush in water, then eye shadow, and apply.
  • If you want a smoky eye, use an eyeliner that smudges easily, and smudge it with a spongy tip. Some eyeliners supply these on the opposite end of the liner part, like Max Factor Pensilks. After smudging your eyeliner, apply eye shadow close to the lashes in the same color as your eyeliner.
  • If you want your lashes to appear thicker, apply coats of mascara. Try not to apply it all at once, or you can get clumps.
  • To separate lashes, use a lash comb. This also gets rid of clumps.
  • When applying any eyeliner, pull your eyelid taut to make a smoother surface for the liner.
  • Apply mascara from roots to ends of lashes while moving wand from side to side.
  • Mascara starts to go bad after about 3 months or so (smell and clumps take place), so make sure to replace it accordingly.
  • Applying foundation on your lids before eyeshadow helps the shadow to stick better.
  • Usually there are three basic shades for eyeshadow and their locations: The lightest goes right below the eyebrow (to make eyes appear brighter), the darkest in the eye crease (to define your crease), and the medium shade goes on the actual eyelid (for the basic color).
