7 Simple makeup tips and tricks to make your eyes pop

Best of the best makeup tips and tricks for your eyes!

In most cases, one would use navy blue eye shadow or any dark eye shadow to make their eyes pop out, which is good. However, to soften the look and not make it look harsh, one can use a neutral shadow to achieve the same. This was one of the ways to make eyes pop out. You can also opt for bright liners for the eyes, which can make the eyes pop out; blacks and browns or neutral liners make the eyes look defined and small. These were just some of the tips, tried and tested, which most of us with small or hooded eyes have been using all the while to make the eyes stand out and pop out. Excited, aren’t you?

1. Use an eyeliner brush:

To get that perfect cat eyes or winged eye look, instead of using an eye pencil, it would be wise to use an eyeliner brush dipped in cake or gel liner to achieve the same. This would be a firm touch, no mess, no worries and no double strokes needed, which can be applied directly to the lid in one stroke.

2. Highlight the inner corner of the eyes:

A touch of shimmer, champagne or metallic white in the inner corner of the eyes can help make the eyes stand out or pop out. You can achieve the same with a smudge brush, a concealer brush or with an applicator brush by dipping the tool into the eye shadow powder.

3. Highlight the brow area:

Just below the arch of the brow and to the out of the eyelid, this is where with a brush you should use a matte white shadow to highlight that zone. A medium sized brush would help achieve the same, by drawing a triangle here and smudging it upward towards the brow, which makes the eyes look bigger and nicer.

4. Don’t swipe across the lids:

Most of us make the grave beauty mistake of swiping eye shadow across the lids. You should stop doing that right now. What you should do in fact is to press the pigment or the color onto the eyelids with a brush or your fingers. And then blend with a brush. End with a tight lining of the eyes with taupe or gray eyeliner.

Once the base is done, only then should you conceal the under eyes with the right color correcting fluid or concealer. This would help with better camouflaging and wouldn’t allow your dark circles to be seen as well.

Smoke it up and create a sensual look for your eyes. However, when applying a shade to smoke up the upper eyelids, don’t forget to use the same shade for the lower lash line too. This helps create drama and definition, and helps with making the eyes stand out too.

From grays to yellows to blues, girls with light colored eyes should know which eye shadow colors to use. One could try bronze to coppers and golds to browns for smokey eyes and crease cut eye makeup styles. Chocolate eyeliners go well with them and you can use shimmer or glitter a little to make the eyes stand out.
