Eyes are the first thing to be noticed on the face. Your eyes reflect your mood and persona, so you can make them shimmery to add mischief, make them smoky to add mystery, or make them colorful to add some fun. So get going girls...... Bat your eyelashes with confidence!
The basic steps are used when you apply eye makeup, whether you go for nude eye makeup or the seductive, smoky eye look. You change your look by your choice of colors. Go for natural colors, close your your skin tones for that nude makeup look, something rosier if you want to look radiant, something more golden, or with metallics if you want glamour, or darker, smoky colors for the smoky eye look.
Smokey, colorful, and shimmery eyes are hot this year.
Decide on your look. Pick three colors for your eyeshadow.
- A light shade for the highlights. This could be a pearl-like shimmer, a very light metallic, or simply a very pale color.
- A medium shade which would be the main color you would use.
- A dark shade for the shadows.
If you have been longing for smoky eyes, then just a combination of two colors such as blue with green can do the trick. You just need to replace your pencil eyeliner with eye shadow which should be applied with a damp brush to prevent shadow flyaway and top it up with two coats of black mascara.
A cool combination of shimmers and mattes is going high this year as it gives you the best of both worlds. Think some cool, pastel eye shadows such as powder blue and baby pink mixed with warmer shades such as coppery peach or metallic bronze. This marvelous combination will not only prevent color overload and would create a more wearable and natural look.
We have a more fantastical look for the lovers of enchanting greens. Encircle your eyes with an opaque peacock green pencil, top it up with sheer, glittery emerald pencil and give a shimmering touch with some gold powder just below the brow bones. Now you are ready to dazzle!
A silent touch of sheer eye shadow speaks volumes by not overpowering. A very natural look which beams an understated glow that gives a luminous and fresh look. This sheer look can be worn alone to make your eyes shine in a healthy glow, or you can apply it over your regular shadow to add that extra glitz.
Lashes are getting more dramatic with high tech mascara which mimics the look of false lashes and helps you to give a salon like look. Colorful mascaras are fun and unexpected and allow you to choose colors, whether dull or bright according to your style. If you want to get noticed, you can go for bright shades like magenta, emerald or if you want to look sober enough then you have options like cinnamon, russet, coffee or auburn. Waterproof mascara and mascara with metallic accents are also catching rage these days.
