My most frequently asked question when it comes to make up is, how to apply eye make up? Listed below is a step by step guide to show you exactly how to apply eye make up.


The key to using eyeliner is to choose what you feel most comfortable with. Eyeliner is available in liquid or pencil form and you should choose the one that is easiest for you to manage. A good eye make up trick is to use an eye pencil if you want to create a smokier look.

If you choose to put eyeliner on both the top and bottom lids, you should start with the top lid. You need to apply the eyeliner all the way from the inside of the corner of the eye, continuing along your eyelash line to the outer corner.

You may have heard of eye make up ideas where eyeliner is applied to only have the lid. This is a big mistake. Lining only the outside half of the eye will make your eyes look smaller.

Another of the eye make up ideas that you should avoid is extending your eyeliner upwards outside the corner of your eye. This will give you a very harsh look and is known as cat eyes.

Eye Shadow

Medium color is used for the lower lid, with a lighter color for highlighting.But don't be afraid of color no matter what your skin tone it you just have to know how to "ROCK IT" and how to pair the right colors together and which colors compliment each other.

One of the best eye make up ideas for eye shadow relates to correctly applying they eyeshadow so you won't look like a fool or a circus clown. If you apply a Face Paint Cosmetics Shadow Base first this will stop your eye shadow from creasing.

You should apply your eye shadow by sweeping your brush across your eye lid ensuring an even color. You should never match your eye shadow to the color of your eyes. It makes your eyes disappear instead of standing out.

They do have shorter lashes that look realistic if you are not into the RuPaul looking eyelashes that I LOVE so much.

Start from the base of your eye lash line and work your way out to the tip. Mascara should be applied to both the upper and lower lashes. Keep in mind that they do sell lower eyelashes so you use the same alternative for your lower lashes.

One of the best eye make up ideas relates to achieving thick lashes. Thick lashes do not however mean large clumps of mascara. The key to success here is to apply several thin coats of mascara.
