If you’re tired of wearing the same old eye shadow and mascara over and over, you should know that there are many different ways to make your eyes look different from eye makeup ideas. You can go for a more dramatic feel, an ethereal look, or a sweet ‘girl-next-door’ appearance. With just the way you apply your eye shadow and eyeliner, you can create a different mood or feel. Below are some eye makeup ideas that will take your look from boring to glamorous.
Dramatic Eye Makeup Ideas – One of the things that really creates a dramatic look is using more than one shade of a specific color. Use the middle shade to cover the eyelid, the darker shade in the crease of the eye and then the lightest shade along the brow bone (under the eyebrow). Blend well with your fingers or a good makeup brush. You can then use liquid eyeliner to line the top eyelid just above the lash line. Kohl can be used on the bottom eyelid, and then blended to create a smoky look. Turn the top eyeliner up at the corners to make the eyes look bigger.
Daytime Eye Makeup Ideas – Heavy eyeliner and mascara during the day aren’t a good idea, as it can look fake or too severe. Instead, choose soft eye shadow colors and lighter eyeliner. Rather than jet black, use soft browns, blues, or purple shades. Instead of three shades of eye shadow, use two; one over the whole eyelid and a darker color in the crease of the eye.
Colors – To create a statement, use colors that are bright and vivid. For brown eyes, blue and purple shadows look great. For green eyes, anything in gold, green, brown, and shades of gray and black work really well. For blue eyes, gray and black shades, pinks and golds, and whites look great. Experiment with different colors until you find a few that look really fabulous with your eyes. Artistry Makeup has a variety of bold colors that will excite and suit nearly everyone.
Nude Look – If you believe that ‘less is more,’ get a ‘nude look’ by applying a flesh-colored eye shadow and light mascara and eyeliner. This is great for outside during the day or a work look.
