Trying to make your eyes pop with makeup can be a challenging task. Not a lot of women can invest their time nor patience into achieving a dramatic look. However, if you need something that can be done in less than 20 minutes, and that will suit any eye shape, keep on reading! Each morning you will look 10x more rested, you will feel youthful, and everyone will ask you “what concealer are you using”? Here is how to make your eyes pop with makeup for any event, and in only 5 steps!
1. Ombré Eye Look
The ombré eyeshadow look means doing gradual shadow and emphasizing your eyes with soft transitions. It can be done with any shadow color that suits your preference, or that is appropriate for your headed event. How to do it? Start your makeup portion with doing the outer corner shadow (preferably a dark brown). Apply the shadow with a round fluffy brush by doing the back and forth swiping motions. Once that shadow is blended, move onto the middle portion and place a lighter brown there. Move to the inner corner where you will gradually place a light beige, nude and in the inner corner – a white shadow. This little makeup trick will elongate your eye and give it fullness.
2. White Gel In Your Waterline
If your eyes are not too sensitive you can experiment a little and place a gel liner in your waterline. You should go for either white, beige, or a creamy nude. You can use an eye pencil (kohl pencil) and slowly put it into the waterline. You can also use a gel that is super creamy thick and rich in pigment. If you opt for this solution, place down the pigment with an angled brush by dipping into the product. Make sure your eyes don’t water since this could ruin your outcome. Also, make sure that the color you choose as well as the brand itself is waterproof, smudge-proof and that the color itself is matte.
3. A Set Of Lash Extensions
Your eyes will look 10x bigger, rounder as well as rested once you get lash extensions. You should book a skilled lash esthetician who will place individual lashes on top of your natural ones. The process takes 60-90 minutes to do, and once done, you will be left with lashes for 2-3 weeks! They can be customized per your preference. This means that you can ask for long, luscious, as well as wispy lashes. Talk the process through with them, and let them determine your ideal solution based on your style and eye shape. In the end, you will love your outcome as well as the fact that lash extensions are low-maintenance.
4. Skip The Lower Mascara Lash Portion
Since you’ll have lash extensions on, you won’t need any mascara. This rule could also apply to the lower lash portion. Plenty of women can’t apply mascara properly to their bottom half. Often they will end up looking funky due to the well-known spider lash effect. By avoiding any black shadow underneath your lash line, and only sticking to the white gel in the waterline, you are making your eyes round as well as rested-looking.
5. Use A Concealer That Is 1-2 Shades Lighter Than Your Skin Tone
Bring a lot of lightness to your under-eye by reaching for a concealer which is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone. Apply the product with either your fingers or your trusted brush. This little makeup trick will conceal any discoloration, dark circles, wrinkles, and will make your makeup pop! After you are done applying both (the concealer and your foundation) set your makeup in place with the right kind of powder. If your skin is dry – use a loose powder. If your skin is oily – use a matte powder. Make sure that the powder you’re using has illuminating properties, it will further brighten your under-eye!
