Check back for the Beautiful eye series in Mastering Makeup Mondays. I loved learning from International Makeup Artist Robert Jones and one of the first things I really tried to master was how to apply eye makeup for specific eye shapes. Today we will focus on the basic or sometimes people will refer to it as a standard eye. Either way you don’t have to tweek your eye shadow to make your eye look any way this is the ideal eye shape, or the eye shape most people want to make their eyes look like. A lot of people really forget the middle color the midtone it is usually the most boring of the three. But it makes the biggest difference! Highlight color should be skin colored or a shade or two lighter. The midtone is usually a shade of brown this shad is usually matte.
It makes a HUGE difference in a lot of eye shapes. It gives depth to your eye. You will be surprised how much more sophisticated your makeup looks when you use all three correctly. The accent color frames the outer part of your eye and if you choose the right color it can emphasis the color your eye as well. If you remember the blog post I did about choosing colors Go opposite of the color wheel if you want to make your eyes pop! Now that is not to say someone with blue eyes can’t wear blue but if you want to POP your blue eyes you shouldn’t 🙂 I just say don’t do it on a regular day basis 🙂 Hope you love my series. Check out for the next 5 or 6 weeks! Hope you enjoy if you have any questions please feel free to let me know!
