Applying Eye Makeup—What Every Woman Should Know

Every woman should learn how to apply eye makeup.

Makeup for the eyes includes eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, and concealer. These are the makeup essentials to emphasize your eyes and to improve your overall look. Wearing makeup can vastly improve your appearance. The right makeup can turn you from being a plain Jane to a vixen in no time. What you should know now is how to apply makeup for your eyes to achieve that goddess-like look.

A lot of women think that applying eye makeup is more difficult compared to applying lipstick or foundation. This is because there are several things that you have to take care of such as your eye lids, eye bags, and eye lashes. The truth is that applying makeup around your eyes is not as difficult as it looks as long as you know the basic guidelines that you need to follow. Here they are:

  • Eye shadow. This is the makeup that you apply on your lids. You can use one color or a combination of two to three colors. The more colors you have, the more dramatic the outcome would be. You can use creams, powders, or paints, depending on which one you are most comfortable in using.
  • Eye liner. This is used to emphasize the shape of your eyes. Be careful when you use this product. Make sure that your hands are steady or you will end up poking our eyes with the makeup pencil. You need to draw the outline around the edges of your eye lashes. The most common colors are brown and black.
  • Mascara. This type of makeup makes your eyelashes thicker and longer. Having longer eye lashes that curve upwards makes your eyes look larger and more dramatic. Just use the mascara wand by combing or brushing it through your eye lashes. You can use liquid or powder mascara. You can also choose either clear or black mascara.
  • Concealer. This is actually a kind of foundation but it is also necessary to conceal the dark area around your eyes or your eye bags. Apply the concealer on the dark areas around your eyes before you apply eye shadow or liner.
