Let’s get one thing clear, Eyes have a way to communicate. Eyes give our face the individuality and energy. Let’s get one thing clear, we do not need eyes to be of a certain shape or colour to be labelled “pretty”. All eyes are unique and add beauty to any face. Applying eye make up should give you a food feeling, only then, it will give you the confidence to carry yourself well. A subtle application of eye shadows, mascara and eyeliner can make your eyes look the best they can be. So, below are a few eye care tips to ensure that the makeup you apply remains natural and gives you a fresh look instead of an over the top and dramatic effect. Eye Shadow Eye shadows have one purpose and that is to define and highlight eyes. If you use dark colours on your eye lids, it will make the eye appear smaller. A lighter colour will make the colour appear larger. We all have different eye shapes so if you have one of the following: Small eyes Try not to use too much eyeliner or eye shadow. Instead, apply a light colour on your eyelid, darker colour on the creases and a highlighter under the brow to lift your eyes. Large eyes Wear a darker shade of shadow on the lid and extend it all the way to the crease. Remember to use a flat colour under the brow to give it a highlight. Deep-set eyes Use lighter colours under the eyelid and brow and use a medium colour on the crease. Wide-set eyes Use darker colours on the inner corners of the eye. http://www.widepr.com/15842 Page 1/3 Hooded eyes Try applying light colours on the lid. Use darker colours from the centre of the eyelid to the outer corners and blend to finish the look. Round eyes For round eyes, use the eye shadow all around and extend towards the outdoors. Asian eyes Apply highlighter under the brow and then use light shadow on the inner half of the lid and a darker colour on the outer half and see the magic happen. Eyeliners Eyeliners are meant to define the eyes but not make them the focal point. Eyeliners come in various colours and forms such as liquid, pencil etc. To line the eye, start on the lower lid, just beneath the lashes. The golden rule with eyeliners is try to keep them as straight as possible and avoid a smudge unless that is the look you want to create. It is okay to thicken the line at the end but I always believe, unless you experiment with eyeliners, you will not know which style fits you the best. Mascara Mascara has two purposes. One is to make your face come alive and the other is to frame your eyes. Mascara has the effect to accentuate the eyes as well darkening and thickening the eyelashes – giving it volume. Some of us do not have naturally curly lashes so if we want a glamorous look, curl the lashes first, with an eye curler then apply the mascara. Always select a shade that compliments the skin. Normally, women prefer black. The best way to apply mascara is to look in the mirror with your chin slightly raised. This way, you have a better view of your lashes. Insert the wand once in the bottle and twist; please do not pump it up and down; it damages the brush bristles and worse, you will have uneven distribution of mascara. Roll the wand from root to tip in an upward motion. Insert the brush again and reply again. With practise, you will perfect the art of mascara application and shine at the next party or event. I have always believed that beautiful eyes are essential for a positive image. This does not mean that applying eye makeup is the only solution. Having a good sleep pattern, eating properly and drinking lots of water all are contributing factors to beautiful eyes always. THE BEAUTY DETECTIVE There were other reasons why I set this website up.
