Eyes are in the spotlight this season. To help you create a killer look, Woman This Month selected five vital tricks to make them attract all the attention.
To make your eyes look bigger, apply your eyeliner on the water rim of your lower lash line. Colourful and metallic pencils will amplify the result. Blue shades make the white of your eyes look brighter.
After applying eye make-up, dab dots of highlighter along the brow bone and around the eyes. Blend it well to illuminate the area. The skin around the eyes is very delicate, so use your ring finger or the appropriate brush to spread the product.
To get a more defined look, use a creamy khol pencil. If you’re going for the smoky effect, keep the rest of the make-up soft. To intensify the colour and make your eye shadow last, first apply a layer of primer.
The Best Shade
Take the colour of your eye into consideration while choosing a shadow. For brown eyes, navy blue works well. Peach and coral shades make blue eyes pop. Green eyes are best complemented by purple, lavender and violet tints.
The list of don’ts includes avoiding an eye shadow that is the same colour as your eyes. Be careful with brown shades, as they can become reddish on your skin, giving you a tired look.
