Eye Makeup Beauty Tips

  • Tips to rocking plum-colored makeup

    tips+to+rocking+plum+colored+makeup_3356_800263234_0_0_7070091_300When applying eye makeup, there are few shades more alluring than plum. The color is softer than black and espresso, yet still offers a smoky finish, and possesses an inherent warmth that makes any eye smolder. But selecting the right makeup can be a bit tricky.

    "Plum shadows are prettiest with shimmer," reports Allure magazine. "Go for blue-plum eyeliner (reddish ones can make you look sickly). Such strong eyes call for neutral cheek and lip hues."

    Still, a bold-colored lid can be a bit intimidating for some. If you want to rock a hint of plum, opt for a purple water-resistant mascara. The formula will subtly tint your lashes, allowing you to embrace the plum trend without piling on layers of pigment.

    Of course, some women prefer to play up their pout. And while many women may think a dark lipstick requires minimal makeup on the rest of their face, they may want to reconsider. According to the news source, a bit of makeup on your eyes and cheeks is necessary when rocking a plum-colored pout - the extra cosmetics will keep you from looking washed out.

  • Going all Old Hollywood

    going+all+old+hollywood_3356_800278227_0_0_7009581_300If there's one classic look that might go with all the holly we're seeing on boughs and wreaths, it's that Old Hollywood makeup style. It's a recurring fascination, kind of like the way we bring the same old holiday decor down from the attic each year, except this one's always fresh and not covered in dust.

    For a sophisticated retro look, Glamour.com recommends applying a thick line of black eyeliner all along your top lash line, winging it out past the outer corners of your eyes. For the smoothest line possible, use liquid eyeliner or sharpen a pencil, making sure to soften the tip a little by tapping it with your finger. You could even start with a pencil and add liquid liner on top for added intensity. Raising your brow will also help you with precision, the news source suggests.

    Next, you'll want striking red or firey orange lips. Apply a creamy lipstick in your favorite traffic-stopping shade, and bring it along for touchups.

    To truly be a Hollywood babe, you'll want full, manicured eyebrows. Try blinc Eyebrow Mousse to restore color and volume to sparse brows.

  • Seeing red

    seeing+red_3356_800280942_0_0_5314_300True, neon eyeshadow can be risky to pull off successfully, but if there's one eyeshadow color that seems especially intimidating at first glance, it's the firey, sanguine red.

    Short of all the vampire makeup trends we've been seeing this fall, red can also be a winning color for festive holiday style, given it's applied the right way and doesn't come off like a bruise or sad effect of sleep deprivation.

    OneIndia.in's Suparna Chakraborty says that mixing red and gold eyeshadow will take the edge off the color and lend depth to eye makeup.

    "Keep the red darker on the inside of the eye lid and use the golden [shadow] on the edges. This will highlight the shape of your eyes, make your eye makeup festive and match well with the party mood," she wrote.

    Finally, you won't want your lashes to get lost behind a wall of red pigment, so finish with a couple coats of blinc Mascara. Its water-resistant tubing formula won't flake or smudge to keep your lashes looking bloody hot.

  • What's good with watercolor lids?

    what+s+good+with+watercolor+lids_3356_800283570_0_0_7061138_300Pastel shadows have been done again and again, and though they may be coming back once more for the spring and summer, there may be an even fresher way to play with this makeup trend.

    "Translucent makeup will be very popular. It's all about wearing makeup without looking like you're wearing makeup. You want to go for eye shadows that look sheer, like water colour," makeup expert Terry Barber told Canada's Metro News.

    For a fresh, dewy look, liberally sweep your favorite sheer, pastel color across your lid and along your crease.

    Pairing with an orange lip color will boost your fashion-forward appeal - according to Barber, it's been showing up on runways in "every possible shade, from citrus orange to saffron."

    Finally, to keep the look light, you can skip the eyeliner - but not the mascara! Brush on blinc Mascara to add definition, as the tubing formula will coat each lash without creating clumpy, too-thick fringes. Instead of a heavy-looking black formula, opt for a lighter shade, such as a medium brown.

  • An eye makeup tip from Antiquity

    an+eye+makeup+tip+from+antiquity_3356_800297626_0_0_5493_300You wouldn't think that ancient artifacts could provide palatable makeup ideas, but there are ways to borrow from Antiquity without looking like a complete ruin.

    That's what designers are doing this season with Byzantine-inspired hair and makeup that defies the conventions of mere mortals.

    According to StyleList.com, the inspiration comes from a mosaic portrait of Byzantine Empress Theodora, found in the Saint-Vital de Ravenne Basilica in Rome, Italy, whose look draws mainly on an exaggerated eyeliner application.

    To copy this look, draw a thick line of black eyeliner along your top and bottom lids, winging the top line and extending the bottom line straight out past the corners. The lines should be virtually parallel, and they shouldn't touch each other. Add a straight line of bright pink or red eyeliner on the arch just below your brow, mirroring the stripe on your lower lash line.

    Finish with a generous application of black blinc Mascara. Its long-lasting tubing formula is designed to hold on through just about anything, up to and including the fall of your empire.
