How to Enhance Eye Makeup
- Start with Primer – If your eye makeup never seems to stay put, try a primer (available at makeup stores) before applying additional layers.
- Brighten Eyes – To reduce red-eye, or make tired eyes look more awake, line the inside of your lower eyelids with a flesh-toned liner. A natural shade is subtler than white.
- Hues to Use – Many people look great in coffee-hued shadows. A more surprising shade that many can wear well? Lavender. It enhances almost every eye color.
- Subtle Liner – If black liner looks too harsh but brown doesn’t seem to blend, try gray. Start at the outer corners and work in, hugging top and bottom lash lines.
- Balance the Face – Strong eyes? Then play down your other makeup, with a softer gloss on lips and a natural color on cheeks.
- Liner Notes – The secret to using liquid liner is to press (not sweep) it on using a flat, square-tip brush along the lash line. This technique paints a precise rim of definition.
- Fix Mistakes Fast – Dip a cotton swab in an oil-free moisturizer and dab the soft tip on the back of your hand until it feels almost dry. Use it to wipe away stray marks.
- Double Your Mascara – For long, full lashes without clumps, use two types of mascara: Apply a lengthening and separating mascara first, then a volumizing one.
- Add Bronzer – Don’t forget to bronze your eyes, too sweep a thin line of bronzer along lower lash lines to make your eye color pop.
- Gold and Gray – If smokey eyes are too strong for your fair complexion, try pale gold eyeshadow and gray liner. The effect is subtle but sexy.
