Eyeliner may or may not be an appropriate for you, but it is used to say that the eyeliner is the basis of doing your eye makeup.
The basic advantage is that it gives you the freedom to work on the shape of your eyes.
This is the perfect way to emphasize them and fill in any sparse looking lashes.
There are different types of texture of an eyeliner.
The final effect of applying an eyeliner depends on the texture itself and your vision as to how you’d like to apply this – it looks great either ways.
Let’s take a quick review at some of the tips and techniques for this step.
1. The first step is to ensure if your eyelids are clean and then apply a primer on them, so the eye makeup does not smudge and stays for a longer period of time – that is all we aim at.
So, do not miss that essential step before you start doing any makeup.
2. If you want your eyelashes look denser, apply the eyeliner as close to the lashline as possible so it looks like to be a part of your natural lash line.
This is called tight-lining. Make a dotted line from the outer to the inwards corner and connect the dots.
3. It is very important the tip of your liner to be thin but blunt to achieve precision and so you get the perfect shape.
You can also freeze your eyeliner before sharpening to keep it from crumbling.
4. To accomplish the perfect winged eyeliner, use a liquid liner – start on the lash line at the pupil and work your way towards the corners. If your hand is not steady enough for liquid liner then first line your eyes with a pencil liner, then trace over it with your liquid liner.
(If you’re in a rush, you should just skip the liquid liner in your best interest!)
5. In case you want to achieve a smoky eye, opt for a pencil liner as these tend to be softer and creamier.
You can also use a smudging brush for that effortlessly cool smoky eye.
6. Another useful advice – do not regret your age.
Use such colors that are appropriate for you and for your age.
Let us say that brown is appropriate for a more elegant look and apply mascara to complement the simple look.
I am sure that you have noticed through the years while taking care of your beauty that mascara totally transforms your eyes, giving you that extra oomph?
The magical mascara wand makes you look bright-eyed and youthful. It’s a total game changer and the only kind of drama that I like.
Here are some important tricks for mascara application.
7. Start applying your mascara from the roots of your lashes and wiggle your way to the tips. Doing this instantly adds additional volume to your lashes and does not weigh them down.
8. After applying one lay of mascara, wait for about ten seconds to go in with a second coat (if desired). This way, your lashes don’t get clumpy! This advice is essential. The basic of the makeup is a guaranty of its long duration.
9. Wipe off excess mascara from the wand on a tissue before applying, so it’s easy to maneuver and won’t clump (you will also avoid the horrid spidery-lashes look).
10. Use a curler before you go in with mascara. Always make sure to curl your lashes using a high-quality eyelash curler. When you go in with curling, pinch your eyelash curler at last base and hold it tightly rotating upwards.
11. The way you hold your mascara matters! Hold your hand horizontally for thicker lashes and vertically (especially for the lower lashes) for a more natural look.
12. An essential tip for a long lasting mascara is then stop pumping the wand while pulling it out (this way you are only sending in the air to dry the product out), just swirl it to prevent it from drying out.
Note: For best results, mascara should be the last act of your eye makeup.
Eyeshadow is adding depthand giving dimension to your eyes.
If it’s applied in the right way, it makes your eyes look bigger and helps accentuate your eye color.
Do you need any advice?
13. Buy only high-quality products and brushes. There is a saying- I am not rich enough to buy cheap thing.
The quality always deserves investments. In this way you will not only achieve the desired effect but also will take care of your natural beauty.
They will go a long way besides ensuring proper application and blending.
14. If you want your eyeshadow to stay put all day and not crease besides wanting the eyeshadow color to really pop out – use a good basis before you go in with the eye shadow.
In case you want to make a less pigmented eyeshadow look vibrant and poppy, cover your eyelid with a white eyeliner first.
This leads to cancelling out the color of your skin and it creates an even base for your eyeshadow.
15. A dark shade is used for the bottom area of your eye (that is just near the lash line) – use a dark shade of eyeshadow, for the area above that, use a medium shade and for the top, use a light shade and blend them perfectly.
Eyebrows are often underestimated. We should emphasize on how important they are to provide a structure to your face.
Well groomed brows are indeed a game changer, they frame the eyes and they drastically ‘up’ your beauty quotient.
If you are someone who has over-plucked them, then worry not, because just a little bit of added definition will make a big impact!

17. Keep the look as natural as possible – this is the most important thing to rember.
For this – make sure to blend the product out properly to avoid any harsh lines and such.
18. Use a subtle highlighter right beneath the brow, under your arch to show off the shape and to add height to your brows.
