There are so many fun ways to use makeup to play up your eyes and frame those peepers. But, with all of the mascaras, shadows, liners, and more, let’s face it…
Eye makeup can be confusing.
That’s why we’re going to break it down and show you the five best eye makeup tricks ever that will literally open up your eyes and make them pop.
#1 – Chill Out
If you wake up with those dark circles we all dread or puffy lids and under-eye area that keep you looking like you’ve stayed out all night long, we’ve got an easy fix.
Don’t just apply your perfect morning eye cream, use it to chill out and banish those dark rings and puffy eyes by keeping your multipurpose cream in the refrigerator.
We like to keep our Miracles & More Active Eye Cream chilled because this allows the actives in the formula to go to work to tighten and firm the eye area, diminish the look of fine lines, and hydrate for hours.
And, when you add in the cooling effect of the time in the fridge, it can help constrict blood vessels to reduce pooling of blood under your eye so that you can say goodbye to dark circles and puffiness.
Even better, since Active Eye Cream applies like silk and quickly absorbs into your skin, it creates a perfect tapestry for applying your makeup.
#2 – Even out your eyelids with primer
Most of us have a slight amount of redness around our eyelids or even some veins that are just a bit too close to the surface which can show through even after applying eye makeup. And, if you’re lucky enough to have missed out on those problem issues, you can still have eye makeup trouble, like uneven blending, feathering, or wearing off too quickly during the day.
That’s why we always recommend applying a primer prior to your coat of shadow and primer to even out your lids, prep for eye shadow, and make your makeup last.
#3 – Be a show-stopper
You don’t have to go over-the-top to be show-stopper when it comes to your eye shadow. Subtle works!
And, when you’re treading lightly with your makeup, it’s important to keep your other features as natural as possible, so be sure to go for a nude lipstick in a soft, matte finish, like Plush.
#4 – Frame ‘Em
And, of course, don’t forget those lashes to create a gorgeous frame for your eyes to look out at the world.
Start by curling your lashes to open up your eyes and make them look bigger.
Next, apply a coat of our Mascara Lashwear in black and follow with a coat of Translucent Powder, then apply a second mascara coat. This helps to add length and volume, and thicken your lashes, without clumps.
#5 – The Brows Have It
Finally, don’t discount the impact of full brows and be sure to fill in any sparse spots to craft a beautiful arc. For the most amazing brows and to avoid looking harsh, we recommend applying our Eyebrow Cream Liner in light or medium brown, using an angled brush.
With these five easy tricks to perfect your eye makeup, you’ll be ready to face the world.
