Your eyes are so expressive! Eyes are the most essential feature of your face and they certainly need to be cared for. Beautiful eyes always attract positive comments. Eye makeup is one way to make your eyes look more attractive. It also enhances the shape of your eyes. Since eyes are also very sensitive it becomes a must that all the products used on or put into the eyes are branded good quality, safe products. Also, you should make sure that the eye makeup suits your skin type, complexion and occasion.

Eye shadows have always been the primary eye makeup. With so many options of shades within the same color group,the opportunity to play with the colors to suit your mood, the occasion, and your eye color.. When we choose a dress for an occasion we need to choose an appropriate shade of eye shadow as well. The need of the occasion might be to have a casual look or it may need you to make a statement. Properly done eye makeup will really help your outfit make that statement. . When selecting color for your eye shadow keep in mind that the shade should complement your dress and the occasion.

Many varieties of eye shadows are available these days and regular users have their favorite brands. Usually mineral based eye shadows are preferred over the rest since they are safe for your eyes (nourish the sensitive skin around the eyes) and also the effect lasts longer so the touch ups are rarely needed.

While doing eye make you can give either round or winged shape to the eyes. This would again depend on the user’s choice, the occasion, dress and makeup.

Tips for Eye Makeup
Eye shadow brushes are available in many shapes and sizes. While coloring the eye lids a slightly pointed broad brush can be used whereas when thin lines are needed slightly pointed brushes or sometimes eye pencils are used.

The eye shadow kits are available with 2 to 3 shades of a single color tone. These 3 shades have different purpose and should be used accordingly. Use lighter shades under the brow bones (covering the eye lid) as this would highlight the complete eye. Follow this by marking the edges of the eyes by a darker shade.

Pat the eye lid surface dry by first applying a little eye powder before applying the eye shadows. The eye powders also have a highlighting effect on the eyes.

While powder base eye shadows are applied with brushes, cream based eye shadows are applied using sponge tip band and eye pencils are used as it is.

Prefer to go for the medium shade of the selected eye shadow color for the lower lid (light shade for upper lid and dark shade for lining).

Like for other make up tools even eye make tools should not be shared with anybody as this might lead to transferring certain eye infections unknowingly.

Eye make can be added to your night make up.

Always use good quality, branded and safe make up products only.
