Most eye colors have a couple of choices of color combination. One is usually more for daytime and one is a little bolder for the evenings. You can also mix and match the options of shadows, liners, and mascaras to achieve your own unique look. The eye shadow choices come in sets of three colors that are aligned in the case in the same order that they should be applied to the eye. So the bottom shadow goes on the lid, the middle shadow on the crease, and the top shadow is applied just under the brow.

Once all three colors are applied, blend, blend, blend. You can even use the bottom color to enhance the eye liner under your eyes. No matter what your eye color, check out this product from Almay that makes eyes easy. Almay Intense i-Color Smoky-i Powder Shadow Kit

Stay-put Make up Secrets

Nothing is quite as frustrating as achieving the perfect look and then watching it fade throughout the day.  From eye liner to lip stick and everything in between seems to fall victim to midday smudging or fading.

If you find that your eyeliner and/or mascara smudges or runs halfway through the day, try reducing the amount of eye cream used in the mornings by half or leave a little space between where the eye cream is applied and where the eye makeup goes.

If your blush seems to disappear throughout the day, put a very thin layer of cream blush under your finishing powder and then top it off with a powder blush.

To keep lips in place and avoid feathering, always start with a lip liner.  Apply lip color, blot, lightly dust with face powder and finish with a gloss to add extra shine and moisture.

Trying these quick and easy tips will help keep that perfectly applied face in place all the live-long day.

Makeup Tips to Open Your Eyes

Eyes Wide Open -  No one wants that tired, sleepy look.  To create the wide-awake or doe-eyed look, eye shadow colors and placement are key.

Using a white or sparkly eye shadow of your choice, take your pinky, and lightly sweep the color on the inner corners of your eye, blending accordingly.  Keep darker, more vibrant colors just on the outside corner of the lower eyelid.  Darker shadows should only cover about a third of your lower lid.  Use a medium shade to cover the middle of the lower lid and the upper lid.

A highlighting shadow along the brow bone will finish off your amazingly bright-eyed look.

Makeup Tips for Smokin’ Eyes

This year, many of us are trying to achieve that ever-popular smoky eyes look.  We see it in multitudes of commercials and all over the red carpet.  How do you create that smoldering look at home?  Easy!  Start by blending a light shade of eye shadow across the entire lid from the lash line to the brow bone.

Next, apply a darker eye shadow to the outer corners of the lids and along the lower lash line forming a sideways V shape.  To create an even more dramatic effect, use darker shades of blues and purples (as long as they complement your natural eye color).  After applying eye liner to the upper and lower lash lines, start smudging.  Smudge it good!

Don’t go too crazy smudging though or you will to look like a raccoon.  Finish off this dramatic look with a couple of coats of mascara to the top and bottom lashes.  You’ll be smokin’!

Tips to Make Eye Makeup Last Longer

Stay-Put Tips for Eye Make-up:   Looking great when you walk out the door is one thing, but looking great hours later can be quite a challenge some days.  One simple trick is to apply your eyeliner and then use a fine-tip brush to dust on an eye shadow that is almost the same color over the liner.

This will help keep the eyeliner from smudging or running throughout the day and will also helps to create that very popular smoky eye look.  To keep your eye shadow from creasing, put a few drops of contact lens solution on each eye lid before applying your favorite shadow colors.  The sodium chloride in the solution helps to retain moisture making eye shadow indestructible.

Eye Make-up 101

It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul.  Whether or not that’s true, it is certain that your eyes are some of the first features people notice.  Here are some basic eye do’s and don’ts that will make those peepers even more impressive:

  • Shades of black eye shadows work well on all eye colors, are a sure-bet, smudge on an intense streak of one of these along your lash lines.
  • Out of eye makeup remover or just don’t own any?  Put some facial moisturizer on a cotton ball and wipe across eyes.  This works just like eye makeup remover!
  • To enhance your lashes, apply two to three coats of mascara.  For a more dramatic look, apply a couple of coats to both the top and the bottom lashes.
  • To open up your eyes on those less than perky days, use a silvery eye shadow at the brow bone and the inner eye corner.
  • To make those eyes pop, choose shades of complementary color eye shadows (the ones that are opposite your eye color on the color wheel).
  • No matter what your eye color, skin tone can make a difference in making your eyes stand out.

Whatever you decide to do to decorate your eyes, be sure to take good care of them by keeping them clean, moisturizing with a light eye cream, and resting them enough.

Makeup Tips for Brown-eyed Girls

Those with deep, dark brown eyes have the freedom to enjoy, experiment, and enliven their eyes with all most any eye shadow color.  A spectrum of shades will enhance your eye color, so have fun trying them on!

To create some extra impact, give deep purples and navy blue colors a try instead of the usual black eye liner or mascara.  Contrast is the key to making your eyes stand out, so let go of the brown eye shadows that mimic your natural eye color.  Shades of mocha and cappuccino with a bit of shimmer will really stand out against your brown eyes.

However, just because you have the option to use every color in the rainbow, doesn’t necessarily mean you should.  Brown-eyed girls should take their skin tone into consideration when choosing eye shadow colors.  Talk with a color expert to find out what colors go best with your skin tone and then experiment away with all of the shade choices available to you.

Makeup Tips for Hazel Eyes

Get some eyeshadow color tips to make yourself a Hazel-eyed Hottie!

You have them, and you love them!  Hazel eyes have an ability unlike any other eye color.  Depending on the light in the room or the color of your clothes, hazel eyes can differ in intensity between shades of green and brown or even sometimes a hint of blue.  Take some time to experiment with a range of colors to create the eye color you’re in the mood for on any given day.

Eye shadow color choices that work for people with brown or green eyes can be extremely beneficial to you, but don’t let them limit your creativity.  Avoid shades of blue and the softer bluish purples.  These colors will not enhance your eyes and may create a lady-of-the-night look that no one wants.  Neutral tones of brown can play up the natural beauty of your eyes, while warm tones of gold and yellow bring out the golden flecks that often grace the hazel eye.

Makeup Tips for Green Eyes

Ga-ga for Green Eyes — Did you know that green is the rarest of eye colors?  It’s true!  Only about 2% of the world’s population has green eyes.  It’s time to start celebrating your uniqueness and give these gorgeous greens the attention they deserve.

To highlight your eye color, use eyeshadow in bronze, copper, soft coral, or peach tones.  These natural eye makeup shades will play-up the earthy green in your eyes.  If you want to create a more smoldering, sexy look, try deep, rich shades of purple and violet in  your eye shadows.  The contrast between the green of your eyes and the purple will create a bright and striking look.  Although dark shades of purple are striking, shades of lavender and lilac are not.  Stay away from these!

Opting for darker shades of purple and building up a little black with your eyeshadow and eyeliner will create a more dramatic, smoky look.

Makeup Tips to Brighten Blues Eyes

Blue-eyed beauties have been looked up to for decades.  If you’ve been blessed with blue eyes, don’t take that for granted.  Make the most of it.  Most of us think that eye shadow in icy pinks are the way to go, but shades of pink and coral can often make the whites of your eyes look bloodshot or yellowed.  Broaden your horizons and think about some complimentary eyeshadow colors that can help your blues eyes POP!

To highlight those vibrant blue peepers, try some warmer colors.  Eye-shadows in sun-kissed shades of brown, gold, and taupe will increase the impact of your eyes.  For the nighttime, try mixing dark shades of turquoise, fuchsia, and even blue itself with black eyeliner.  The darker framework will make the light of your eyes really stand out!
