Mastering eye makeup can be quite tricky because there are so many steps and products working together to form the completed look. Good thing there are plenty of hacks and tips that will make the process infinitely easier and give you beautiful and achievable results. Here are some of our favorite hacks so far:
Do your eyes before applying foundation
Eye makeup application can often be a little messy or require makeup remover to perfect. That’s why it’s actually wise to actual proceed with your eyes first before you put on other products on your face—even foundation or concealer. You’ll avoid disrupting parts of your face that have already been completed. And if you really want to be careful, consider purchasing eye shields specifically for eye makeup application.
Consider white eyeliner as a handy beauty tool
It could be a strange concept to opt for white eyeliners, especially when we’re so used to having black ones. But actually, it’s one of the most versatile products you can have in your makeup bag. It can be used to enlarge and brighten your eyes, to highlight certain areas of your face, and as a base that makes eye shadow pop.
Blend a cut crease for easy definition
How do you achieve sultry, defined eyes? It’s all about making the most of your cut crease. Simply take a dark shadow and blend it really well along the upper crease of your eyelid, connecting the end of the line with the outer corner of your eye. Use a lighter shade on your mobile lid (the part that moves when you blink) to create contrast.
Get familiar with strokes
Don’t be afraid to make a very defined shape on the outer v area, then blend it so the edges fade away. A trick is to use eyeliner pencil to draw a hashtag. Then, try gently blending with a cotton swab. As for your all-over shadow color, you can use small patting and dabbing motions. This will help you get a more pigmented, even layer of application than if you simply wipe the color over your eye. After applying color to your crease, use windshield wiper motions to soften any harsh lines. You can use a brush without any product on it at all: you’re not adding any more color, just gently distributing what you already have on your skin.
Invest on an incredible mascara
Mascara polishes a complete eye makeup look. Many people think that they need falsies to get darker and thicker lashes, but just find the perfect mascara and you’ll be all set. What is the best one out there at the moment? Lash Factory’s 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, contains a secret ingredient called Natural Green Tea Fibers that connect to your lashes, giving you the longer and fuller lashes that you want in one single stroke.
