Everyday Eye Makeup Tutorial

Things you will need:

  • A concealer and foundation

  • Eyeshadow (colors needed – matte dark pink or red colour, a dark mauve or dark grey eye shadow and a silver shadow for highlighting)
  • Kajal pencil/Black liner pencil

  • A light pink lipstick
  • Some lip gloss
  • A little pink blusher for the cheeks.

How to Apply Eye Makeup?

Step 1:

On clean eyelids, apply concealer and foundation. Follow it up with a compact for a flawless texture. This helps the colors to stick to your eyelids and also keep oiliness at bay. You can also use a primer for longer staying power.

Step 2:

Apply the matte red or the dark pink eye shadow on the whole of the eyelid. Do not extend it in a tail. Just keep the eye shadow on the lid only.

Step 3:

Apply the silver highlighter or silver eye shadow on the whole of the crease, on to the brow bones, at the eye nose junction and blend well. Blending is very important to avoid harsh lines. The better the blending, the finer the look.

Step 4:

For a moderate and simple smokey effect or shadow effect, use the dark mauve or dark grey shadow at 1/3 of the eyelids at the exterior side. Do not do it half and half because that will make it a duos eye look which may not seem like a simple eye makeup look.

Step 5:

Use a black pencil liner or kajal on the lower rim.

Step 6:

Drag the line towards the end of the lid and finish it there. Do not make extensions. Making extensions will be your choice. To keep it simple, I will neither broaden the line nor make any winged extensions.

Step 7:

This is how the completed eye makeup look should look like. It is a clean and neat look.

Step 8:

Use mascara in a top to down fashion on the upper lashes and a zigzag form on the lower lashes.

Step 9:

Brush out any excess or clumps of mascara with a mascara brush.

Step 10:

Use a lash curler if you want added curl.

Step 11:

Use a pinkish blusher on the cheeks. A light pink lipstick with a dark pink liner and some gloss will complete your fresh everyday makeup look.
