The eyes are the window to the soul, as the saying goes. They are what can capture a crowd or a special person. They are also one of the features people notice first when they meet someone. Therefore, you want to make your eyes pop. Here are some beauty tips to really make your eyes look their best.
Get Plenty of Sleep
The first trick to making your eyes look dreamy is to make sure that you don’t look too tired. When you’ve stayed up too late the night before, your eyes will show it no matter how much makeup you use. If you want to make your eyes pop for a special event, you need to make sure you get plenty of sleep the night before.
Be Open to Trying New Things
There isn’t only one way to do your makeup. You can find different tips and recommendations depending on your eye shape, skin tone, style, and mood. To find what fits you best, you need to be willing to experiment with your eye makeup. Try different styles, colors, and products. Trying new things will help you learn what looks best on you. You will also get to gauge responses from other people at work or on social media. Don’t be afraid if one look isn’t well-liked—we all make beauty mistakes from time to time.
Lengthen Your Lashes
Long lashes accentuate your eyes and highlight your femininity. However, not everyone is blessed with gorgeously long lashes naturally. If you don’t have naturally long lashes, try fake lashes. You can glue lashes on or get lash extensions.
If you get lash extensions, don’t forget lash fills when the old extensions have run their course. Most likely, you’ll need to get lash fills every two to three weeks if you’re keeping your extensions full-time. Even if extensions aren’t something you prefer for your everyday look, they are great for special events.
Use High Quality Products
It can be difficult to budget for high-end beauty products. However, there is a reason these products are so expensive—they work, and often, they contain safer ingredients than cheaper products do. If you want to try a product before committing to the higher price tag, you may be able to get smaller samples. Then, when you’re ready to buy, you can feel confident that the product will work well for you.
If you want to make your eyes pop, you need to put in the effort. Spend time practicing your makeup. You can get help from YouTube tutorials or friends. Some people even offer makeup lessons. Talk to your cosmetically-inclined friends to see if they can help give you a couple of pointers.
Don’t Go Overboard
One of the biggest mistakes people make with their eye makeup is going overboard. You don’t need to use heavy eyeliner, eyeshadow, fake lashes, glitter, and dramatic colors all at once. In fact, sometimes less is more. You don’t want the makeup to distract from your beautiful eyes; you want the makeup to enhance them. While a full glam look is appropriate from time to time, keep the makeup to a more natural look most other days.
Start with sleep and a good moisturizer. Next, find a good, neutral eye makeup routine that will work for most days. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experiment and do something a little bolder on occasion. Most importantly, have fun and wear eye makeup that makes you feel your best.
