Applying Sexy Eye Makeup
Sexy eye makeup is a concept that has been used since the reign of Cleopatra. Over time the techniques have changed and evolved, but the effects on men are still the same. Women know that the eyes are a terrible weapon, and if done correctly, makeup can amplify the effect by tenfold. Getting the right look is not so hard if you know what you’re doing. Knowing what to play up and tone down is the key to achieving those killer eyes. Being sexy is not all about getting garish colors to get everyone’s attention, rather it’s all about the shape of your eye – almond eyes are what you’re trying to achieve here.
First off, remember to put moisturizer on before applying your sexy eye makeup. This sets the foundation for what you are going to apply later on. Now choose your shades. A good and safe combination would be brown, black or gray for your lids and liner and a lighter shade like grays or cream or whites to highlight your brow bone and the middle of your lids. Start by lining your eyes and keep as close to the lash line as possible. Depending on your kind of eyes, make the line thicker to give it a defined shape. Line both the upper and lower lids.
Now moving on to eye shadow, start with a lighter shade of the color you are going to use on the lids themselves. Use an eye shadow brush to apply shadow on the outer corners of your eyes creating a smoky effect. Now take a darker color and paint them on your lids. Make sure to blend both of these colors so the change in shade is not too dramatic. Put a little of your highlighter color on the middle of your lids just so you make your lids pop. Sexy eye makeup is about being sexy without being too harsh.
Remember to curl your lashes to open up your eyes more. Apply mascara on both the upper and lower lashes, focusing on the outer corners of your eyes. Apply about two to three layers. When you want sexy eye makeup it is very important that your lashes are well defined too. When you apply your mascara, you can also choose to curl it in between applying each layer so the curl lasts long. Make sure there are no clumps. After it all dries, voila! You now have sexy eyes.
