8 Easy Steps to a Perfect Eye Makeup

1. Prepare your makeup by applying concealer under your eyes.

A concealer hides any bluish vessels or any discoloration under your eyes. To cover dark circles under the eyes, place three points of concealer under each eye. One point at the inner corner, one below the pupil and one point at the outer edge of the eye.

Then wipe out the concealer with small light pressure using the ring finger until the concealer has merged with your complexion. The ring finger should always be used when working with creams under your eyes, as this finger does not push so hard.

2. Apply a fixed eye cream that will keep your eye shadow in place.

Without a proper foundation, your eyeshadow will probably form thick lines on your eyelid.


Dark eyeshadows work well as eyeliner. Soak a bevel brush and dip in the dark eye shadow. Draw a line on the eyelids as close as possible to the upper lashes, from the inner corner to the outer corner. Follow with a line on the lower lash line, but only from the center of the eye. Wipe the bottom line with a tops or a finger so as not to get a hard line.

For a slightly “smoother” eye makeup, use a brush to pat a dark eyeshadow along the upper eyelid and its eyeliner. Do the same along the lower lash line. You should not have sharp lines without a slightly “smoother” look.

4. Then apply an eyeshadow

It may be a three-tone shade to create a more dramatic effect. Let the tones blend into each other like a rainbow. Use one or two shades for a sophisticated slightly more discreet look or combine all three shades for a more intense look. Let the color intensity be brighter during the day and more intense in the evening.

Option A. Start with a light color, preferably a color that almost matches your eyelids. Sweep the color over the entire eyelid and up to your eyebrow bone. Then follow up with the color over the entire eyelid and finish with the darker color in the glossy line. Blend the colors together with a pointed applicator so that there are no lines between the three shades.
Option B.
Divide the eye into three sections. Then use a round applicator to apply a light color to the eyebrow, the one between the color of the middle of the eyelid and the darker color at the outer edge of the eye. Then use a pointed shaped applicator to blur the lines so that there are no lines between the three shades between the shades.

To create an intense look. Also, let the color continue down a little bit at the outer edge of the eye, down along it under the lash line or create an intense block with a kohl pen.

5. Highlighter

Press a finger or hard applicator into the light eyeshadow and then push it into the inner eyelid where the upper eyelid meets the bottom lid.

A very light eyeshadow, often white or beige and preferably something glossy.

6. Highlight your forehead.

Take the same bright eyeshadow and press it on your eyebrow bone, focusing on the center of the forehead and outward. Erase with your finger.

7. Bend your eyelashes using an eyeliner

Gently bend your eyelashes with this tool but be careful not to break the lashes. In the past, a teaspoon was used to bend to the lashes.

8. Finish by applying mascara.

Apply by pulling the stick with the brush on the bottom of the fringes and wiggling back and forth. Follow up with a few more sweeps.
