“Eyes are the windows to the soul.” Isn’t what they say? Well, it seems for good reason too! What you may not be able to say in a hundred words, your eyes can communicate in a glance. Be it sadness or joy, mischief or seduction, mystery or openness….the eyes can say it all! In a matter of seconds you can be coy or flirtatious, serious or ecstatic, inviting or cold…with just a look from your eyes. No wonder then that women take special pains in highlighting their eyes and scour books and websites for some good eye makeup tricks they can use.

Well, I believe that eye makeup techniques all begin with choosing the right kind of products to apply on your eyes. Without them, there’s no way that you will be able to get the desired results. The essentials to great eye makeup are mascara, eyeliner, and eye shadow. For those who have dark circles under the eyes, you may even want to consider light foundation or pressed powder to hide them. For some more eye make up tricks keep your eyes firmly glued to this article.

Be an Artist with Eye Shadow Palettes

There is a stunning range of eye shadows that are available in the market these days. With an eye shadow palette in your hand, you can blend two different colors and experiment to see how you look. In fact, very soon, you may not need me to give you all the eye makeup tricks. You will come up with some of your own as well!

Eye shadow powders that are traditionally available are very easy to use and handle thanks to their foam pads and applicator brushes. There are even cream-based eye shadows in the market these days, and their motto is “less is more.” With just a light application they can enhance the look of your eyes.

Select the Right Mascara

These days, there a number of different kinds of mascaras for you to choose from, depending on the kind of look you are trying to achieve. From lengthening and thickening mascaras to those that are waterproof and can curl your lashes – you need to carefully define your needs before you choose mascara.

Having read quite a few eye makeup tricks, you’d know that two coats are more than enough to define your lashes. To prevent mascara from clumping, make sure the first coat dries before you apply the next one.

Define your Eyes with Eyeliner

Don’t restrict yourself to plain black eyeliner – you can experiment with colors like khaki, brown, navy or plum. If you are looking to be subtle, a light application would be better. But, for a more dramatic look, you can go for a thicker and darker line. Though there are many eye make up techniques out there, most women are not aware of the proper method of applying eyeliner. All you have to do is pull the corner of your eye outward and make a straight line along your lashes. Then, you draw a line from the inside corner all the way to the outside.

When buying makeup products, do not compromise on quality. Makeup counters at your local department stores are sure to have testers you can try on yourself. Make sure that whatever you buy gives you great value for money.
