Eye makeup can define how natural or dramatic your look is. Whether you want to learn a process you can use every day or look stunning for a special occasion, here's how to get it right. Wearing a smoky eye is always popular, and there are limitless ways to reinvent the look. For a unique style, use a light metallic eye shadow color to highlight a dark or jewel-toned smoky eye (use a silver highlight for cool colors like black, grey, blue or purple and use a gold highlight for a warmer smoky eye in brown, copper, or green). Use the highlight shade both above the eye and below the liner under the eye for the most dramatic effect. Eye makeup ideas are limitless. The continually growing range of eye makeup colors and products means there will always be something new to explore.
Eye Makeup Ideas
Try looks and colors that call out to your personal sense of style, but don't be afraid to try those outside your comfort zone too. Sometimes the most unexpected color combination or application technique turns out to be the one you love. Apply mascara. You can apply a little or a lot, and there are many different brands and formulas for volume, length and definition. Find a product you're happy with. Start at the base of your upper lashes and slowly sweep upward. For a more dramatic effect, apply mascara to the lower lashes as well. If you want to apply multiple coats, do it while the first coats of mascara are still wet - applying a new coat to dry mascara will result in clumps.
