There are so many tricks to the trade. So how do you know if you are doing it right for the best and most flattering look? I have found makeup expert tips from all over the web to get that look you are looking for. Or just some tips you may have not thought of for your best look.
Layer Your Liner
If you’re not a professional makeup artist, it can be difficult to line those eyes, but then again liquid liner tends to stay on longer and smudge-free. So what I do is, I line my eyes first with a pencil liner because it’s easier to make that straight line with it. Then I go back on the line with the liquid liner. It’s kind of like coloring! The result? Your eye liner will stay on, smudge-free, and well-lined.
For Soft and Sexy Eye Makeup
For an eye look that’s defined but not too heavy, line your upper lash line with black eyeliner and the bottom lash line with brown eyeliner. This is one of my biggest makeup artist tricks for beautiful, soft eyes!
To Open Up Your Eyes
Take a white eye pencil and line the inside rim of your lower eyelid. This really makes eyes pop! Fun fact: Look at the old black/white photos of the gorgeous women of the ‘30s and ‘40s like Marlene Dietrich and you’ll see this was done to them. Additionally, if your eyes are a close set, use the white pencil to lightly line the section where the upper and lower lids come together, closest to the nose. This will make them appear wider apart. The key here is to make sure it’s subtle.
For Thin Brows
For people with thin brows, use a pencil first that is a bit lighter than your natural color to define the shape, then follow with a brow powder that is close to your natural hair color with a thin, strong angle brush. After, use a brow gel or sealer which will set the powder. My fave is the Model in a Bottle – Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer. It is by far the best sealer out there and I have tried many
Make Mascara Count
Make a tube of local mascara look as good as the results from Chanel tube by holding a business card up along the inside edge of your lashes and sweeping the brush against it with your other hand. This way your lashes can’t bend out of the way of the brush and you end up coating every lash all the way to the tip. The results will leave you wide-eyed in more ways than one.
