Getting the right look for your eyes can completely transform your look. Knowing what you are doing when it comes to makeup is half the battle and you won’t have to spend an absolute fortune on all the top of the range products when you know a few small tips.
It goes without saying that different people have different preferences when it comes to the makeup they use and there are ways out there for you to try different products without breaking the bank but that’s for another post.
Here are some of our top tips for making the most of your eyes;
Make your eyes appear bigger and brighter by curling your lashes. This might seem a bit of an obvious one but it is amazing the amount of people that don’t bother. Simply curl your lashes and then apply your mascara for a great, bright eyed look.
While we are talking about mascara it can be a great idea to mix things up. Use a thickening mascara for the base and a lengthening mascara up to the tip. This will make your lashes look fuller and longer.
Another great way to open your eyes up with the use of makeup is by not connecting the top and bottom. By leaving a gap it will create a space that brightens your eyes.
Finding the right shade for you should really depend on your eye colour, here is a quick guide that should help you.
Blue – Light neutral tones suit blue eyes the best and you should avoid anything too dark or smokey. Complementary colours like champagne won’t distract from your natural eye colour.
Grey – Grey eyes are great for a smokey, hazy eye shadow. Grey eyes are rare and making the most of them should be your priority.
Green – Because green eyes already stand out a darker, muted colour will help to make them pop.
Hazel – For hazel eyes think metallic or pastels to really give your eyes a sparkle.
Brown – Brown eyes are the most adaptable and most shades will work. Neutral shades might work the best but you really have a lot of options.
Dark Brown – Strong shades can help to enlarge your eyes.
There are a number of great tips to make your eyes your main feature and all you have to do is have a little look about, do a bit of research or even speak to your friends. It’s amazing the amount of tips we all pick up and if we start to share them with each other there is no reason that we can’t all look great.
