How to Apply Makeup For Beginners-Part2 Putting on Your Eyes

Feb 05, 2018

1

Apply an eyeshadow of your choice to your eyelid. For beginners, try a single neutral shade like taupe or aubergine. Use a rounded shadow brush or your finger and make quick, short swipes across the lid, working your way up to the brow bone.

  • The shadow should go from your lash line to just beyond the inner crease. From there it fades upward toward the bone.

  • Set with a thin dusting of translucent powder.

  • If you're using a brush, tap it lightly on the side of the eyeshadow case to remove any excess.

2

Apply eyeliner. Use a black or brown pencil and apply along the rim of your upper lash line in short strokes.

  • Lift your upper lid with one hand and look down into a mirror as you apply with your other hand.

  • Eyeliner is one of the areas that you can really experiment with as you become more confident applying makeup. Factors like color, texture, and line application can have a big impact on the appearance of your peepers. Play around!

3

Curl your lashes. Place a lash curler at the base of your upper eyelashes (along the lid) and press for five seconds.

4

After this, apply mascara. Apply to the upper and lower lashes with the tip of the wand oriented towards the outer corner of your eye. One coat should suffice for this look.
