Glam up your eyes!

Applying eye makeup can be very basic, but makeup artists often have additional tricks to make eye makeup look even more perfect and glamorous. Below are some of those secrets that we can do at home to make our eyes pop!

Glam up your eyes!

Take out the liner

Apply a black pencil to the inside of your upper lashes. The effect is defined eyes and longer looking lashes

Go nude

To make your eyes look bigger, line the inner rims of your lash lines with a nude pencil


Add sparkle

Perk up tired eyes by adding a light shimmer or cream shadow to the inner corners of your eyes

Try navy blue

To reduce the look of red eyes, line the inner rims of your upper eye lids with a navy blue pencil. You can also apply a navy mascara just to the tips of your lashes to make your eyes look brighter (apply regular black mascara first)

Opposites attract

Remember the opposites rule when choosing colors to make your eyes stand out. Brown eyes look great in blue hues, blue eyes look rich with brown or peach hues and earth tones look fabulous on green eyes.
