Hello lovelies!!! Today, we are going to focus on the eyes. There are legends that speak of the eyes as the windows to the soul. How wonderful!! What do people see in your eyes?? Seriously, with such weighty expectations on them, why not make sure they are as big and bright as possible? If, unfortunately, you weren't blessed to be naturally doe-eyed, there's always make up!! These tips are wonderful no matter the color, shape, or size of your eyes. Today's tutorial will hopefully give you some awesome tips to get bigger, brighter eyes.So, gather your materials, and let's get started!!!!
What You'll Need:
2 flat angle brushes
1 concealer blending brush
Precision eyeliner brush (if using gel or liquid liner)
Brow powder or pomade
White or light eyeliner
Black eyeliner (pencil, liquid, or gel)
Step 1: Shape and define your brows. Shaping the arch of your brow in proximity to the pupil opens the eye, as well as frames the eye nicely. Use a brow powder ( I like Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow), to fill the brow evenly. Use a concealer a shade or two lighter than your complexion will give the brow a nice highlight, as well as define it's shape. Apply the concealer along the arch of the brow to neaten any imperfections. When blending the concealer, blend away from the brow. Be sure to use angle, or flat precision brushes to apply the brow powder, and concealer and be sure to blend blend blend.
Step 2: Line the waterline of your eye with a white pencil. ( I like NYX jumbo pencil in the shade Milk) Starting in the inner corner, and working the color out. This immediately opens the eye, as it serves to slightly extend the white of the eye. If your eyes are abnormally small, you may line underneath the lid as well for a rounder eye, this is just a bit of extra insurance. If you like a dark liner on the waterline, apply it directly below the white liner, or on the outer corner of the eye. This gives it the definition of the dark liner without creating a messy gray. For darker complected girls, use a light gray, or flesh colored pencil instead of white.
Step3: Line your lid above the lashes with a black liner. Using a flat angle brush, or a precision liner brush, create a wing on the outer corner of the eye and move toward the inner corner of the eye. Once you have created and filled the shape of the liner, you may detail it to the thickness or darkness you prefer. Be sure to extend the wing slightly past the outer corner of the eye. This extends the width of the eye, as well as offering a little extra lift to perk up the eye.
Step 4: Define the lower lashes with a lengthening mascara. This further opens the eye, and offers a contrast to minimize the obviousness of the white liner.
Step 5: Pop on some falsies. Lengthening and thickening the lashes, opens the eye and makes it pop. Falsies come in so many different lengths, thicknesses, styles and looks. I am partial to Nu Bounsom 100% Cruelty-free and 100% Mink lashes. Mascara can also be used to create a similar effect if you prefer it.
