Avoid any future eye makeup catastrophe with these simple yet essential steps!

Yes ladies, we are talking about clumpy lashes, uneven eyeshadows & maybe worse! if you are looking for clear uncomplicated daily steps that will guarantee a beautiful looking eye-makeup... Keep reading, it’s all going to be there in just 5 simple steps!

 

P.S: Once you become more comfortable with these steps, don’t be scared to try things around! Have fun with your eyeshadows & explore new looks! That’s how any makeup artist becomes an expert... Right?!

Step 1: Enhance

This step calls for: Light eyeshadow or a highlighter (preferably a non-glitter one).

 

Let’s start off with this easy step, grab your eyeshadow brush & apply a shade lighter than your skin tone or a highlighter, over the eyelid & below the eyebrow. Start from the inner corner of your eye & work across the lid, make sure to spread it evenly. Don’t forget to blend below the eyebrows, to highlight them & add more definition.

Step 2: Contour

This step calls for Warm eyeshadow or a bronzer.

 

If contouring isn't your area of expertise, don’t worry this step will not require much skill! First, pick a shade darker than your skin tone or a bronzer & blend it above the lid. To accomplish this perfectly, it’s crucial to keep your eyes open and apply the shade only above the lid, creating a smooth contrast between the lighter shade above it. This will add a subtle definition to anyone’s eye shape.

Step 4 - Define:

This step calls for: eyebrows brush (spoolie) & brows pencil, gel or powder.

 

Transforming your eyebrows into a thick beautiful shape is an easy mission! Just remember to follow these tips below:

 

  • Brush your brows upwards creating the base shape, and to make them look bigger.
  • Use your pencil or angled brush to outline the outer half of your brows.
  • Keep the outline thin and gentle to give them a seamless blend later on.
  • Fill in between the two lines you created, adding strokes that match your eyebrows color.
  • Move on to the front section of your brows by filling them in without outlining them.
  • Take the spoolie and brush your brows again to spread the product evenly and diffuse any excess.

 

And voilà! you got yourself beautiful looking eyebrows!

Step 5 - Finish:

This step is completely optional: Fake Lashes

 

If you want that extra WOW-factor then fake lashes are the way to go! They are the perfect addition to a gorgeous eye look. But before diving into the world of fake lashes, it’s important to remember these do’s & don'ts:

 

Don’t:

  • Don’t forget to curl your eyelashes before applying.
  • Don’t over-add the glue, a small amount is more than enough.

Do:

  • Do put mascara before adding lashes.
  • Do wait for 5 to 6 seconds for the glue to dry a bit before adding them to your natural lashes.
