Ever wished you had gorgeous popping eyes, the likes you see in magazines and makeup ads? Wonder no more. Most women are not born with large popping eyes and need a little help from the Makeup Industry. If you know how to apply the proper foundation, eye shadow colors, eyeliner and mascara, you too can have large eyes that pop.
The first Step is to find out what colors compliment your skin and eyes. See this color chart for suggestions.
Pick eyeshadow that compliments your eye color, choose your foundation based on your skin tone, choose from liquid to kohl eye liners, and decide what type of Mascara can help thicken, lengthen or do both for your eyelashes.
If you have eyelashes that are thin, barely there or very short, you may consider false Eyelashes or Individual Eyelashes, which you can place where you want to add more volume or length. You can apply two individual eyelashes to the outside of your eye only to extend the length of your eye.
Apply Primer or Concealer all over eyelid up to eyebrows and underneath eyes to cover dark circles.
Apply your choice of eyeshadow colors. Cover all of your eyelid with lightest color, up to your eyebrows.
Apply medium dark color into crease of eyes and blend well.
Apply your darkest color on the very outside of your eye, only about 1/5 of the outer part.
Apply your eyeliner close to the lash line and extend it outward and upward on the outside of the eye. Apply eyeliner on lower outside third of eyelashes.
Learn how to apply eyeliner according to your eye shape in this Tutorial “12 Eyeliner Applications for Different Eye Shapes“.
Curl your Lashes and apply Mascara or apply False Lashes.
