Deep Set Eyes!

11 Jun

One of the best things you can do is Highlight your lid.  God gave you a crease you don’t need to deepen it.  So instead of hightlighting your brow bone like all the other eye shapes you want do put midtone on it.  You are trying to push back your browbone and bring forward your lid.  You also want to be very light handed with your accent color.  Just on the very corner of your eye don’t bring very much into the crease.  Demi or her make up artist 🙂 did a really good job in this picture.  She is such a natural beauty I think.  Deep set eyes can tend to be a hooded eye as you age so make sure you use a FABULOUS eye cream to help with wrinkles!  Deep set eyes are beautiful help them guide them to be that way!

Exceptional Eyes!!

6 Jun

Your eyes are the first place that we show aging.  So one of the first things that we need to make sure is that we have a Fabulous eye cream!  One of the main things about aging is hydration.  If your skin isn’t hydrated watch the wrinkles appear.  So,  number one in an eye cream is make sure that it is very hydrating.  I know that for me you should probably start using an eye cream once you graduate high school.  I KNOW I KNOW  crazy but true.  I thought I was super young and I was and then I was walking down the mall one day and one of the kiosk ladies asked me do you want to know how you can get rid of those eye wrinkles and I was APPAULED  I do not have eye wrinkles.  But I went home and sure enough they had crept up on me.  The sad part is I had a FABULOUS eye cream in my make up bag I just wasn’t consistently using it.  So moral of the story start using it so you don’t have to worry about them coming for years.  Great thing though they dissappeared so even better news people you can reverse the hands of father time!!  A great eye cream can have vitamin c, collagen producing peptides.  You can also look for an eye cream that brightens to help if you have light circles.

Anti-Aging Eye Creams For Wrinkles

  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area are always associated with aging;  ingredients in anti-aging eye creams such as caffeine, alcohol, retinol,  alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), copper peptides and vitamin C are used to tighten  skin and stimulate collagen growth. Collagen gives skin elasticity and  hydration, giving it a more youthful look

Wide Set Eyes!

4 Jun

The way you figure out if you have wide set eyes is if you take the length of the eye and try to fit it in the middle of both eyes if you have extra space than you have wide set eyes.  Wide Set eyes this is for sure one of the eye shapes you would NOT want to do the Cat eye.  Bring as much dark color into the inner corner.  You really want to layer in that inner corner.  Usually you would put the accent color in to the iris the middle of the pupil.  With the wide set eyes you want to pull in in farther than that.  I have a friend that has wide set eyes and seeing without her makeup  is strange because I hardly ever see her without it 🙂 I hate to say that.  But when she applies it the right way it works and looks FABULOUSLY!!!  I chose this picture because her makeup is not doing her any favors.  She needs to pull that color farther over and has too much highlight or not enough midtone.

Close set Eyes!

28 May

Close set eyes are figured if you can’t fit the length in between both your eyes than you have close set eyes.  Alright so I am using celebrities because I want you to see that just because you have one doesn’t mean you should be upset or think it is the wrong one.  At first I thought mine was a negative, but I really have found I love playing with my own specific colors and applications.  When you have close set eyes.  The one thing you for sure don’t want to do is have a really dark accent and pull it super far into the other eye.  The more you pull it in the closer they appear.  So the accent color you want to make sure you leave it just on the outside and you can for sure do that cat eye look.  That would specifically work really great with this eye shape.  So think about that.  You can wing it out.  This is the one eye shape that if you want to go outside of the line of the corner to your eye brow you can.  It won’t be a bad thing.  So remember that.  When choosing how to make it look more dramatic.  Instead of pulling it farther in push it out a little bit.

Droopy Eyes

21 May

We can always tweek our makeup to make things appear a little differently.  For the next couple of weeks I am going to do a series of how you should change your makeup based off your eye shape.  If you have a droopy eye the corner of your eye turns down a little bit.  Some people might want to raise it a little bit.  When you do your midtone and you do your accent you don’t want to pull it down you want to raise it a bit.  Normally you don’t want to pull color any farther than diagonal from the corner of your eye to the tip of your eyebrow, but especially with a droopy eye you want to lift it a little bit higher.  You also want to leave a little space in between your eye liner of the top and bottom lid.  If you connect them than you drag your eye down ward again.  If you do this you will be amazed at what a little change of where you are placing you color can affect how lifted your eyes look after!  Give it a try and let me know what you think.  Deep, close, prominent, wide set eyes are all Yet to come 🙂

Beautiful Eyes Series!

14 May

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!

No more Magic Markered Eye Brows!

9 Apr

First You need to have a perfectly shaped Eye brow.  You can either go to a professional and have them waxed or threaded and then you can just upkeep them, or if you need to shape them first yourself there is a great simple way to do it yourself.  Watch the clip above its a fast way to tweeze and make your brows look natural.  Then most women need to fill your brows with a pencil and powder.  I would say about 85% of women need to fill in your brows.  When I take my make up off my mother asked me once if I had overtweezed 🙂 I told her “No this is the way my eyebrows look normally.”  She said “Wow I didn’t know they looked real 🙂 ”  We all know those women who draw in the eye brows and it looks like they took a magic marker and just made a crescent moon over their eye.  It never looks natural, you need to make sure you do short feathery strokes with a pencil and than if you go over it with a powder than it smooths out any extra harsh lines and it makes it look even more natural.  It also makes everything last longer if you use both a liner and a powder.  Hopefully this helps you have FABULOUS looking Brows!
