Eyeshadow Tips on How to Wear it like a Pro

If you want your eyes to stand out, you need to have great skills when you do your eyeshade makeup. It’s a little bit frustrating when our eye makeup doesn’t turn out the way we want it to be. We’ve got some helpful tips here below that can help you improve your eye makeup skills.

Do’s and don’ts when wearing eye shadow

First thing you have to consider is the color you will be picking. It doesn’t have to be the same with your eye color. What is important is that whatever color you choose, it has to match your eye color and will look great on you. For example, if you green eyes, try using shades of purple and see which shade looks perfect on you. Another, if you have brown eyes, since brown is neutral, any color should look best on you. Another thing, when choosing colors, it has to coordinate with what you wear. Common mistake of women is that they use same color of shadow with that they wear. Never ever do those, you’ll end up looking like a clown. Also, it has to fit the occasion that you’re attending to. Don’t wear too much makeup during business meeting, and wear little to no make on your first date.

Wearing eyeshadow

Choose three colors of your choice. Categorize them into three, light, medium and dark. Light colors are the first to be applied. It has to cover entire eyelid going to your brow bone. Next, wear the medium shade, apply it on the crease. Start from the outer corner of the eye going inside. Remember to blend it well with the first color. Don’t put too much color in the inside corner of the eyes, it will look gaudy and loud. Then the last to be applied is the dark shade. Apply it on the upper lash line and on the lower lash line. It needs a little practice to master this step and leaking of eyeshadow is just normal part of the process. All you need to do is to conceal it by applying medium shade of eyeshadow.

Tips for keeps

Always start your eyeshadow makeup with a base or eye primer. Though you may skip this, it is best not to because it helps the eye shadow to wear and last longer throughout the day. If fine lines are already visible, stay away from shimmery eyeshades, it will just make fine lines more visible.

Working on eyebrows is one of the hardest things, especially if you have few to no hair at all. It can sometimes be frustrating seeing your face with no eyebrow hair at all. This article can help you shape and define your eyebrows perfectly.

Materials needed

  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Eyebrow powder
  • brush
  • Tweezers
  • Eyebrow razor
  • Eyebrow stencil

Shaping your eyebrows

Eyebrow MakeupAlways start with clean and dry eyebrows. You will be needing your eyebrow pencil, hold it straight beside your nose to see where your brow should start, mark that point, then angle it outwards, about 45 degrees to check where it should end. Don’t forget to mark that point too. Tweeze hair strays. Use brow razor to shave fine hairs that are too fine to be tweezed. Using a spoolie brush (it looks like the brush in your mascara wand), brush brows so you’ll see uneven hair parts. Trim it with scissors. There will always be unruly hairs, brush it down suing spoolie brush and trim it again. Now that you’re done cleaning and removing hair strays, we can now move and work to start filling your brows.

Once you’re done, tap extra powder and start lining the upper side of the brow. Don’t make it to dark and harsh. It is best to make it light to look more natural. Use your spoolie brush to blend colors well. If you have a clear brow gel, you may use it for unruly hair. You can also use hairspray and spoolie brush as an alternative. Apply shimmery eye shadow on your brow bone to give your eyebrow makeup a clean look. Remember to blend it well so it will not look like a rectangular patch. Finish it with bold black mascara and you’re done!

Additional tip:

  • For more dramatic look, use bolder shades of eye pencil.

Makeup tips

It can be sometimes hard to pick and choose which color and look are you going to wear. Here’s a tip, try copying one of the celebrity’s look but make sure that your skin color is the same with them so there is a great that it will compliment and look good on you. Common mistake among beginners is that they try to make each facial feature a focal point which is not correct. Choose only one area, whether your lips, eyes or nose. We all want our eyes to stand out, right? If you have a beautiful and glowing skin, especially the young ones, you may skip foundation, instead, use a concealer to hide blemishes. Less makeup makes your eyes stand out just the way you want. Another tip: if you already got beautiful eyes, don’t overdo or don’t do much on them. Just work on your lips, wear your favorite shade of lipstick and, voila. You already look great. Less makeup is better.

How to do eye makeup

Follow the simple step we have below. You can use whether you’re trying to create a natural or dramatic look in your eyes. It’s better to start with a clean face. Wash your face with clean soap and rinse with water. Dry it using a clean fluffy towel. If it happens that you still have makeup residues, remove it using makeup remover or a cotton swab with lotion. If you’re using moisturizer, don’t apply on your eye lids, it will make your skin greasy and when you try to put makeup, it will just wear off. Putting primer ass your base helps makeup to last longer, but that’s just optional. You may skip if you wish to. If you have those dark circles under your eyes, use a concealer to hide them. Dab small amount on the area you want to cover and blend it using your fingers. When buying concealer, swipe it on your wrist, the one that hides the veins best is the best concealer. Now you can start applying eyeshadow. Pick three colors, light, medium and dark shade. Be sure that the colors you pick complement each other. The shade that you’re going to apply first is the medium shade. Apply it on entire eyelids. Light brown or medium pink is the preferred color. The light color must be applied on your brow bone. When you do this, you can also use light gold shade to give you a more bouncy and light look. Use good quality brush when you apply it. The darker shade of eye shadow is applied on your crease. Start from outer corner of eyes then moving into the inner corner of eyes. Violet and brown compliments the two shades mentioned above. Blend the colors well. The more you blend the more natural it will look. After working with the eyeshades, let’s proceed with eyeliner. You may use liner pencil, liquid eyeliner and even your eyeshadow palette. Start on your upper lash line using small, tiny controlled strokes, then on your lower lids too. To finish your look, apply mascara. When you apply mascara on upper lash, hold the wand horizontally, start from roots to tips in a zigzag motion. For the lower lash, position the wand vertically and move it up and down. If you already got those natural curled lashes, no need to curl it. But if you wish to you may still do it. But remember, curl lashes first before applying mascara, or else you’ll have smudge mascara all over your curler.

It looks more natural. You can also have your lips tattooed if you want it to make as one of your features. How nice it is to drink in a wine glass without staining it? Aside from that, permanent makeup can also make your lashes fuller. Think of yourself coming out from the pool not worrying about your mascara smudging all over your face.

After the procedure, you will feel swelling with redness that goes away in few days. It is part of the process to achieve the result that you want. The color may be dark for few days but lightens and fades after time. Supportive measures for swelling is cold compress and take some antibiotics to minimize infection. It is advised to make a test if you are allergic to dyes to avoid and minimize further complications. There are also reported cases of HIV complications because of contaminated and unsterile devices. Tip: it is best to go and visit a reliable clinic so as prevent complications and infections on the latter part. Before jumping into your decision, think and weigh the pros and cons. Be very careful when choosing colors. Remember, if you pick green color for your eye liner, you’ll have it for years.
