For daytime application, the most it should take you to apply your
make up should be 10 - 20 minutes. Hope some of the tips below will help.
There are a couple of things to remember when applying eye
make up. The skin around the eye area is one of the most sensitive. Always use products
that are hypo-allergenic. When possible, try it out before buying, or if that is not
convenient I recommend a product line that is guaranteed, so if for some reason you find
it incompatible with your skin, you can return it for exchange of refund.Always use a base
foundation. Whether it is a powder, liquid or concealer, you want to start off with an
even base from which to work.
Pencils, are great for highlighting and bringing attention to
the eye area. There are a couple of things to keep in mind. Less is better, you want to
keep it subtle, so as not to draw too much attention to anyone area. One way you can
achieve this is to make sure that you have a sharp end, minimizing the width drawn.
Picking the right colour. Black is not the only colour available out there. For most
women, it is the most suitable colour, although shades of brown can be just as appealing.
For those that are far more fair, dark shades of blue can add a great dimension. One very
important thing to remember is that eye pencils are not to be shared. That is where one
can easily contract "pink eye". While it is not deadly, it can be painful and it
sure is not great to look at.
Shading. There are just a couple of tips to remember. Shading
is almost an art form onto itself. If you are as not practiced, I would recommend that you
follow these simple tips. Darker shading creates the illusion of depth, so if you are
trying to bring out smaller eyes, stay far away from dark shades. Do not put the same
colour on the entire eye. Most especially if you wear blue eye shadow. You don't want to
look like Mimi Bobeck. Blue eye shadow should be used in small dosages and only on the
lid. When shading you want to put the darkest colour on the lid and lighter shades as you
approach the brow. Ê Mascara. We have all seen the commercials about how we want to stay
away from those that clump.
