BEAUTY: How To Do Your Eye Makeup for the Prom or Events!

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Hello Beauties,

This time we're going to talk about "How" to do your makeup for the Prom. The trend this year seems to be light eyes, bold lips. You might be wondering what this means. When you do makeup you want your face to be balanced, so you should either concentrate on accentuating your eyes or your lips—you very rarely ever do both! So pick which one you personally want to accentuate.

In this segment we will concentrate on eyes. Doing eye makeup usually takes the most time and I personally tend to do eye makeup first even before foundation as it is easier to clean up any excess that has fallen during application.

The tools you will need are:

• Eye shadow (in 2 or 3 shades)
• Eyeliner
• Mascara
• Q-tips
•  Eye makeup remover (just in case of mistakes)


Directions:

1. Apply some of your foundation to your lids and brow bone (NOT on your brows). This gives your eyes a primer and blends them to the rest of your face.

2. Eye shadow palettes usually come in 3 shades (a light, medium and dark). Place the base color (the medium tone) to the eyelid first, starting from the inside corner of the eye to the outer lid.

3. Next, apply the main color (the dark tone). There are different ways to do this depending on your eye shape. Below are some examples and how to apply the color.
  • Wide-set eyes: On wide set eyes, you use the dark tone from the inside corner of the eyelid to the middle of the eyelid, and apply the light tone from the center to the outside of the eyelids.

  • Close-set eyes: If you have close set eyes you have to apply the dark tone of the eye shadow from the center to the outside of your eyelids and go beyond the outer corner. Then apply a lighter color from the center to the inside of the eyelid.

  • Droopy eyes: If you have droopy eyes, then you have to apply the darker tone on your eyelid and go upwards in a wing shape. Use the highlight tone under your eyebrows.

  • Big eyes: In this case you apply the dark eye shadow tone going outwards and a little bit upwards on the eyelid. The highlight should be just under the eyebrows with a lighter color.

  • Small eyes: If you have small eyes then you apply the darker tone of eye shadow on the socket of the eye and the upper part of the eyelid. On the lid you should use a lighter tone of eye shadow and highlight under the eyebrows.
(Chart is slightly different than the above)

4. Place the highlight color (the lightest tone) under your brow bone to highlight and brighten your eyes. The main thing is to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! You can use a brush or your finger to even out the three shades, although I suggest using a brush as it is easier to use and you get better results.

5. Now it's time to apply eyeliner. Eyeliner comes in many different forms (cake, liquid, pencil) so just pick the one you feel most comfortable using. Note that if you use a cake form of eyeliner you will need to use an eyeliner brush. A pencil should be sharpened each time you use it for hygienic reasons and for easier use. You can also warm it up between your fingers to make it easier to apply.

6. Starting with the upper lid, place the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible and draw a line from the inside corner out then reverse the process on the bottom lid. You do not have to go the whole way to the inner eye on the bottom three quarters of the way is fine. Wait for the eyeliner to dry for a minute or two before moving on to the final step. This is especially important when using liquid eyeliner. To make a smoky effect, smudge the edges with a Qtip.

7. Lastly, apply mascara. It is easier to use a hand mirror when applying your own mascara as you get a close up view of your lashes making it easier for placement.

Firstly, brush out your lashes using a brow/lash comb to separate your lashes; it's much easier to this now when they are dry and not wet with the mascara. While you are applying the mascara you should always apply it from the inside out and not miss coating any lash. To eliminate clumping you should apply the mascara in one stroke on the whole length of the lashes to have full and long eyelashes. You can make your eyelashes longer by applying a second coat of mascara after the first has dried.

That's it! Now you have amazing, knock ‘em dead eyes!

Till next time...xoxo!
Wendie
