Eye Makeup Beauty Tips

  • Choose a colored mascara that will complement your eye color

    When selecting colors to enhance your eyes, it can be tricky to figure out which shades look better - those that match your eyes or a complementary hue?

    Luckily, celebrity makeup artist Carmindy recently spilled some insider information to StyleList.com, and she has effectively taken the guesswork out of choosing makeup that emphasizes your peepers.

    "When it comes to enhancing your natural eye color, I really believe that opposites attract," the beauty expert told the news source. "If your eyes are brown, I like to use a deep sapphire blue, for blue eyes, a nice, rich chocolate brown, for green eyes I like to go with...an amethyst color, and for hazel eyes, green really makes them pop."

    While most women turn to eyeshadows and liners when they want a dramatic look, ladies can also use a special mascara to add a hint of subtle color that is sure to brighten their eyes. Brown-eyed beauties can enhance their stare with blue water-resistant mascara, while green-eyed girls can make heads turn with a few coats of purple water-resistant mascara.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19932019-ADNFCR

  • Use black mascara to make white eyeliner pop

    While many people think of dark palettes when dreaming of edgy makeup, sometimes a light hue can be just as effective - like white eyeliner. But correctly applying the snow-colored makeup may not be as simple as drawing a white streak across your lids and heading out the door.

    According to the beauty blog Cee Mee, women need both white and black cosmetics to flawlessly execute this look. To begin, use a white eye pencil to draw a modest-sized stripe across your upper lash line, and emphasize the line by applying a streak of white eyeshadow on top of the liner.

    Next, apply a bit of black eye makeup to add definition and keep your peepers from looking washed out. The news source suggests applying an extremely thin line of black waterproof eyeliner as close to your upper lash line as possible, and finishing with black mascara on top lashes only.

    If you want to try this look, you could opt for a black tubing mascara - the acrylic-based formula won't smudge or flake, so you won't have to worry about the dark pigment interfering with your impeccable white eye makeup.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19932155-ADNFCR

  • Eye primer and special mascara may help makeup last

    eye+primer+and+special+mascara+may+help+makeup+last_3356_800075821_0_0_7034517_300Whether you are preparing for a long day of work or getting ready to attend a black-tie event, making sure your eye makeup lasts can be of the utmost importance. However, with the seemingly endless amount of products on the market, how can you easily select the best ones that will help your eyeshadow stay-put?

    Sometimes, it really may pay to look toward the stars for such answers - Hollywood stars, that is. To help Katie Holmes get ready for a show during New York Fashion Week, her makeup artist wanted to ensure that her face remained flawless throughout the entire event.

    "I prepped her lids with an eye primer in a light/medium shade before applying a blend of shimmery taupe and deep gray shadow," Mai Quynh told InStyle.com, adding that she finished the look with two coats of black mascara.

    Eye primer is a great product for women who want to make their makeup last, as it helps to keep pigments from running, fading and creasing on the lid.

    Ladies may also want to don an acrylic-based tubing mascara, which coats each lash individually, and will not flake, smudge or smear.

  • Wear green water-resistant mascara this fall

    wear+green+water+resistant+mascara+this+fall_3356_800080625_0_0_7042660_300As fall arrives, women everywhere are clearing out their cosmetic cases to make way for new products in the season's hottest colors. According to InStyle magazine, one look that is sure to be a hit is green eye makeup.

    "There's something about green shadow that makes eyes really golden," makeup artist Pati Dubroff told the news source. However, the beauty expert warns against applying too much of the pigment.

    "I consider green a neutral eye shadow, but it's important to be very measured when you use it," Dubroff added. While emerald-hued eyeshadow can be applied in moderation - below the crease of the eyelid or along the bottom lash line - women can also use green water-resistant mascara to add a touch of color that will make their peepers pop.

    Acrylic-based tubing mascara is especially appealing , as the product forms tubes around each individual lash, and will not flake, smudge or smear. After all, while green eye makeup may be alluring, runny mascara can ruin a look.

    When wearing green water-resistant mascara, remember to keep the rest of your eye makeup simple - a variety of colors on your lids may compete with your tinted lashes. Instead, opt for a neutral shimmer and brown or black liner.

  • Hot eye makeup trends for fall

    hot+eye+makeup+trends+for+fall_3356_800088003_0_0_7070090_300While most women spend the beginning of autumn making room in their closets for the newest fall fashions, ladies may also want to take some time to clean out their cosmetic cases, as there are a few new eye makeup trends on the horizon.

    This fall, heavy black eyeliner is back, and to achieve the most sultry look possible, makeup artist Pati Dubroff recommends lining the inner rim of your bottom lash line.

    "I put it on my clients's waterlines, have them blink, blend the liner and start again," she told news source. "Building this imperfect, smudgy line is incredibly sexy."

    Though women are often warned against mixing metallics, rocking different hues can be quite dynamic.

    "Layered silver, gold and bronze on the eyes is like wearing jewelry on the face," Dubroff advised. To push the look to the limit, she also suggested keeping the rest of the makeup minimal and opting for a white dress.

    However, Dubroff offered one last piece of advice to ladies looking to rock multi-colored metallic lids.

    "Too much mascara can interfere with these sweet, sparkly shades," Dubroff added. "I tend to use brown mascara to keep it light."
