Here are secrets to big, bold eyes!
Chiseled eyebrows outline your face and draw attention to your eyes. Makeup legend Bobbi Brown suggests filling your eyebrows with eye shadow that matches their color. “I like to brush the hair up with a short feathery brush and then towards the tail. Follow a natural eyebrow brow,” says Bobbi Brown in a video on her You Tube channel. For women with thick brows, she also recommends using a clear brow gel after filling to trim the brows. Here’s how to apply makeup to make you look more alert and less tried.
Start with an eyeshadow primer
The last thing you want is for your eyeshadow to disappear or wrinkle your eyes. Use a primer or foundation to keep your eyelids as smooth as possible. This way, your eyeshadow will stay fixed throughout the day.
To make your eyes look big and bold, the key is to add depth to your eyeshadow. First apply light eye shadow to your eyelids. Then, apply dark eye shadow to the eye creases above the eyelids. This will create an element of dimension. Don’t forget to blend the lid color and crease color to create a seamless look.
Choose the right eyeshadow colors
Perhaps the most important step is to choose the color of your eyeshadow to match your shading. “All you have to do is choose the opposite color to your eye,” says beauty expert Lauren Curtis in a You Tube video tutorial.Blue eyes means bronze and copper, while green, hazel and brown eyes are best in the purple and taupe range. It’s also important to pay attention to skin tone when choosing shade colors. The darker your skin tone, the warmer your eyeshadow should be.
Don’t skip eyeliner
Apply a gel, pencil, or liquid eyeliner on your upper lash line. If you have light eyes,use a brown eyeliner, and blace eyeliner will accentuate brown eyes. Work the liner into the lash line as close to your eyelashes as possible. For a smoky look, apply brown or black eyeshadow to your lower lash line with a small eyeshadow brush. Just make sure the upper and lower eyeliner intersect the outer corner of your eye.
Highlight your eyes in the right places

ALWAYS include mascara
First roll up your lashes. Hold the curls for a few seconds,then let them go. Next, brush two to three coats of mascara from the bottom to the top and bottom lashes. “I like to layer different mascara formulas for a customized look,” says Bobbi Brown on her You Tube channel. “You want your lashes to look extra long, extra thick, and extra black.” These makeup tips will help you stand out in your photos.
