EYES SECRETS

TECHNIQUE ON EYES AND EYE BROW

Make your eyes pop by changing their shape – for natural definition: Apply a black pencil to your upper inner rim. It lengthens the eye and it also sharpens the appearance of the eye, giving more fullness to the natural lashline without seeing the hard edge of a liner

If you have narrow-set eyes: To elongate your eye width, apply a black liner to the outer half of both your upper and lower lashlines, connecting at the outer corner.

If you have drooping, heavy lids: Use what you just learned about highlights and shadows to lift your eye. Apply highlighter above your crease, from the inner to outer lid. Then blend a shadow to the area that you want to push back, which would be the heavy fold. Make sure to blend the edges from the shadow to the highlight.

If you have small eyes: Apply a beige-colored eyeliner to your lower inner rim, which will help make eyes look more open. Then use a black pencil liner along your entire upper and lower lashlines, connecting the lines at the outer corner. The key is to blend the liner with shadow, going outwards. Wherever you place the darkness is where your eye will go, so by smudging the lines, it gives the allusion that your eyes are taking up more real estate on your face.

Make fake brow hairs look real – the biggest mistake women make with brows is choosing a color that’s too dark. Dark brows can make you look older, so pick a color that’s a couple shades lighter than your hair.

If you’re using a pencil: For a realistic look, apply more pressure at the bottom of the stroke where the root would be. Ease off on the pressure as you flick your stroke upward, using small strokes to make it most look like hair.

If you’re using a powder: Brush the powder starting from the outer corner of your brow and work against the direction of your hair growth. This ensures a more natural finish by allowing the brow hair to sit over the powder, so that your brows don’t look drawn in. Make sure to emphasize the arch with your color, and taper off at the inner corners so you don’t look angry.

How to conceal those under-eye circles –  Dark circles are such a sore spot for most of us, how to remove under-eye circles with the “V.” With your concealer brush, swipe the color-correcting concealer under your eye in a “V” shape from your outer to inner corner. Then, buff the concealer into your skin, until you get to the center of your lower lid, where you’ll want to feather the concealer for a lighter application.
