Cliché as it might sound, the eyes are the windows to the soul. But what if you want to do something different with those windows? Artificial or not, contact lenses have helped a lot, may it be for medical purposes or not.
Put some tainted glass and curtains to that window through contact lenses and eye makeups – matte, shimmers, or even diamond stickers. Friends will definitely want to take a peek into that window. There are a lot of different eye makeups, but here are some of the most popular:
Go for natural
The “barely there” look is best for your next business meeting or formal engagements. Whatever suits your mood, you can play with strong colors that will be good together with the respective occasion.
Natural here does not mean monochrome. Brown, gold, silver, maroon are some of the best choices. You just have to prettify your peepers for a good first impression. Also, do not forget that the color must compliment your attire.
Go for smokey
The Smokey Eye Makeup is recommended for Asian eyes (except for Taylor Swift’s everyday smokey eyes). This trick will make small, chinky eyes appear bigger and brighter, great for night outs. It makes use of metallic colors black, gray, silver, blue or brown.
Since this trick intends to accent the eyes forward, the iris should appear normal or natural – in the shades of your natural eye color. Other colors are safe to use, but not the creatively designed contact lenses. Check out some tutorials in Youtube.
Go for creative
If you have something fun happening soon like a product launch or a fantasy-themed birthday party, go for the creative makeup.
Wear an outrageous designed contact lens that relates to the theme of the party. Compliment it with a similarly outrageous eye makeup. Layer different colors together, or even include a face paint for more theme-authenticity.
Do not forget about the fake eyelashes, or mascara if you already have thick and long lashes. Opening and closing your eyes will be sultrier by adding volume to your lashes. Put the brush at the end of the lash roots and wiggle in an upward motion.
Eyelining your covers will not hurt, especially if you have small eye opening. Sweep carefully over your covers and smudge a little on your lower lid. Better to use pencil liners first if you are a starter.
Now, flaunt it!
There are a lot of eye makeup tutorials and tricks in the Internet that you can check out. Moreover, there are a lot of affordable yet high quality makeups out there such as drugstore brands. Just be sure to understand first your face structure, especially your eye shape and what kind of eye makeup goes best with it. Remember to not overly do it that will make you look like a cramped up spooky doll.
