Life-Changing Eye Makeup Tips You Need To Know

When it comes to eye makeup, there are so many elements that you need to get right to achieve a flawless final look, but there are so many things that can go wrong. Yup we’re talking about panda eyes, falsies that are falling off. You don’t have to suffer from any of these dilemmas again, as long as you follow these easy yet life-changing makeup tips.

 Prep your lid

If you fail to prime, prepare for a makeup fail. Okay, so this may seem a little dramatic, but by prepping your lid, you’ll help create a base for seamless blend ability while ensuring that your shadow lasts all day, and remains crease-free.

Step 1: First, remove any excess oil by lightly pressing a dry sponge onto your lid. This will soak up any moisture or oils sitting on your lid.

Step 2: Apply an oil-free or mattifying primer to soak up any remaining residue, which could cause your eyeshadow to crease. 

Step 3: To finish, apply a light dusting of setting powder to creating a smooth, even canvas for application. 

Find the right brush for the task

Using the right tool will make your life so much easier: it’ll enhance pigment pay off and enable you to blend more easily. You’ll also be able to add definition and precision by using tailored brushes. Plus, if you’re working with different textures like shimmers, the right brush will pick up more product and apply the shimmer more consistently. 

Blend like a pro

Now that you have the tools, you need to perfect your blending technique. Here are our top tips:

Pat then blend: To create an even base, pack the product by gently pressing the powder onto the lid. Once the color has then been applied, blend it out using back and forth motions (think windshield wipers).

Blend outwards: To lift and open up the eye, drag the eyeshadow outwards, up towards the tail of the brow. This will create a subtle cat-eye effect, even without a winged liner. Never blend downwards as this can make your eyes look a little droopy or tired.

Mix eye shadows: Don’t be afraid to mix eye shadows on your brush to create a more harmonious look that blends more naturally. Just make sure you tap off any excess pigment before you apply it to your lid.

Choose a wing that flatters your eye shape

The right eyeliner can make your eyes look bigger, and take years off, while the wrong shape can make your eyes look smaller and even a little droopy – not ideal! You want to enhance your natural shape and play with the dimensions to create the illusion of larger eyes. 

Highlight strategically

Adding a touch of highlighter will instantly open up your eye and add a little shimmer. Applying highlighter to your brow bone will lift the brow, and applying a little to the inner corners of your eyes will help open them up. To finish, add a touch to the very center of the lid to make your eyes pop.

Mascara

If you’re not a false lash kind of girl, this hack is going to change your life. It involves three products: an eyelash curler, voluminous mascara with a feathered wand, and a lengthening mascara with a plastic wand. Firstly, the eyelash curler will help lift your lashes and open up your eyes. The first mascara will help thicken your lashes and add drama.
