We all love to accent our favourite features whether it be our hair, lips, eyes or all three. No matter what colour eyes you have, becoming aware of some simple techniques and making adjustments to your daily routine can really help your eye colour pop out.
Find below 10 ways to make your eyes stand out, brighten up and look awake! AMAZING!!
1- Line the inner corner of the eye or your lower lash line with an eye pencil in white, pink or silver. Blend in the line. For extra brightening, use the pencil to highlight the brow line.
2- To brighten eyes apply white (high sheen) eye-liner above top lid. Silver works well also. Some people find that a nude shade works best for them. White can be too obvious for some skin tone if so, try a nude shade or something light peach or beige.
3- Apply a tiny dab of concealer at the outer corners and blend it with a sponge. Skin around eyes is highly coloured; you need to smooth it out to make eyes look healthier and brighter.
4- To create brighter eyes around the eyelids, dot concealer from the lashes to the crease, blend slightly then apply a dot of highlighter at the inner corners of the eyes (this creates an illusion of bigger eyes as well).
5- To brighten eyes use a Q-tip cotton swab to apply a light shimmery shadow to the area between the bridge of the nose and eye. The light shadow will draw all eyes to yours.
6- Don’t try to match the eye colour a contrasting colour makes the eye pop.
7- Brighten blue eyes and draw attention with Smoky Grey, Pink Smoke, Cappuccino, or eggplant. Brighten Green eyes and draw attention with Perfect Pink or Wine & Roses.
8- Concentrate a darker shade on the outer corner of the eye and sweep across the lid.
9- A liquid liner has an amazing ability to stay on longer and creates a deeper colour. You can also make an eye-liner or brow colour out of some eye shadows.
10- Use the lightest shade as a base and highlighter, the medium shade for contour/shading and the darkest as a liner.
