What we need for the complete eye makeup:
* a light neutral eye shadow
* a round eye shadow brush
* a dark eye shadow
The Steps to be followed:
The eye shadow brush is run over a light colour.
Starting with the two colours:
a neutral colour and a darker colour.
The brush is run over the light, neutral shade and then any excess shadow is tapped off.
Index finger can be used to apply the colour if a brush is not available.
A light shadow is applied to the lid.
The colour should be applied across the entire lid covering from the lash line to just above the crease with sweeping upward towards the brow.
Now the brush is run over the darker colour.
The brush is sweeped over the darker eye shadow and the excess is taped off before applying.
The dark shadow is applied to the crease.
If starting is done by applying the shadow at the outer corner of the eye just above the top lashes,contour can be created.
Then the brush can be sweeped along the eyelid where the brow bone hits the crease.
It is done by moving the brush in a half-moon from the outer corner of the eye inward towards the center of the eyelid.
It should be noted that it shouldn't be applied to the innermost part of the eyelid.
The brush is moved back and forth several times to blend.
For intensifying the colour, it should be repeated with more shadow.
The same steps are followed for the other eye.
It should be remembered to tap off the excess shadow each time the brush is dipped.
When the matter comes to making up the eyes, there are a few insider beauty tricks one can use to amp up the game.
Here are the Secrets to All-Day Eyeshadow:
A quality eyeshadow primer is chosen.
A good primer can make a world of difference.
If it is used as the base the eyeshadow will stay put through rain, sweat, and even the heaviest of oil slicks that are produced by the skin.
A quality eyeshadow should be chosen.
A great pigmented shadow is the best. One should stick with it and have fun exploring the various colour palettes available.
There are eight steps to get absolutely gorgeous eye makeup.
Concealer is applied to the dark areas.
This means that the concealer is applied and dotted with the pad of a finger or a concealer brush to the blue-ish, purple-y places around the eyes.
Three dots of concealer is applied under each eye.
First dot is started at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then the second one under the pupil, and the third on the outer edge.
Step 2: Priming of Those Lids
One can prime the face before applying makeup.
Eyeshadow primer is the secret for keeping the shadow in place for hours.
For applying the primer, a dot is put simply on each lid and then blended.
Lining the Eyes
Liquid liners or an eye pencil,can be used.
The eyes should be lined as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner corner to the outer corner.
Some Swipes of Eyeshadow
Eyeshadow is great because it covers up any veins in the lids and helps the eyes pop.
It should be started with a light colour that almost matches the lid.
The colour is sweeped across the lid and up to the brow bone.
A medium colour is followex across the lid only.
Then a darker colour is applied in the crease.
The colours are blended properly.
Step 5: Highlighting the Inner Eye
This step is said to be a makeup artist's secret and a trick that people use all the time once they see the results.
A finger is dabbed into the lightest eyeshadow in the palette and then pressed into the inner corner of the eye where upper lid meets the bottom lid.
This totally makes the eyes "pop".
Step 6: Highlighting the Brow
Same light eyeshadow is taken and dabbed on the brow bone, concentrating on the mid-brow outward.
It is blended with fingers.
Step 7: Curling the Lashes
An eyelash curler makes even long lashes look more gorgeous.
For added effect, the curler can be heated under a blowdryer for a couple seconds.
This simple trick makes the eyelashes look bigger, fuller.
A burst of hot air is simply blown for not more than three seconds onto the eyelash curler before curlimg the lashes.
Step 8: Applying Mascara
Finally,the look is finished off with a little mascara.
The wand of mascara is simply placed on the brush at the bottom of lashes and wiggled back and forth.
It is followed with another few sweeps of the wand.
It is applied to bottom lashes as well.
