Eye Care Make Up Tips
The first step to eye make up is applying eye shadow. Here are some make up tips on different styles of applying eye shadow:
• For wide set eyes, or for giving an impression of more distance between the eyes, apply a light or medium shade eye color to your entire eyelid. Apply a darker color eye shadow to the outer one third of your eyelid and extend it beyond the corner of your eye. Smudge the color inwards to make sure that it blends with the lighter color. Widen the outer edges of your eye using an eye liner. Apply mascara on the tips of your eyelashes on the inner corner and keep increasing to the full length of your eye lashes on the outer edge.
• For closer eyes, or for the impression that your eyes are closer than they are, apply a light color eye shadow on the eye lid as before. This time, apply the darker shade on the inner edge of your eyelid and draw a fine line towards the outer corners of the eye and blend the color.
• For big, bold eyes, apply a light color eye shadow just underneath the brow line. This highlights your eye. Apply a medium shade of eye shadow to the main eyelid. The dark eye shadow will be applied along the crease of your eyelid till the outer edge of your eye. Blend the colors with the help of your fingertips. Apply eye liner, both on the upper lid as well as the lower lid, above and below the eye lash and make them meet at the outer edge of the eye.
• For softening your eyes, for highlighting the brow line apply a medium color eye shadow. The darker shade is applied to the rest of the eye lid. With the help of an eye liner, draw a line just above your eye lash and then apply mascara to your eyelashes.
