Tips for perfect eyes

Make-up tips for perfect eyes

Eyes are the mirror of the soul – With the right eye make-up, small blemishes can be concealed like drooping eyelids and inconspicuous eyes can come out big. In addition, the shape of your eyes determines which make-up suits you best. We will tell you the best make-up tips for eyes and eyelashes. Make your eyes shine!

With a few tools and a little practice, you’ll get professional results for a breathtaking look. You will need these utensils to make up a comprehensive eye make-up:

  • Eye shadow palette (dark and light eye shadow)
  • Eyeliner
  • Kohl (Kajal)
  • Mascara
  • Eyebrow pencil or eyebrow gel

4 make-up tips for larger eyes

1. eye shadow

First apply a light eye shadow in a nude color to the movable eyelid and then use a dark nuance in the eyelid crease to create contrasts. The darker shade gives your eyes more depth. Be careful to choose colors that match your skin tone and eye color. Bright highlights with copper, cream or silver eye shadow applied to the inner corner of the eye will make your eyes shine. Important: Stay in one color family and blend the eye shadow for soft transitions.

2. eyeliner

This important beauty tool helps to enlarge your eyes. The eyelid line is drawn along the lash line and tapers slightly upwards for a seductive cat’s eye effect. You can use an eyeliner in black, brown or gray. When choosing a suitable beauty product for the perfect eyelid line, you can use liquid eyeliner or an eyeliner pencil. Eyeliner pencils differ in that there are models that resemble a felt-tip pen and others that are more like a colored pencil. With a liquid eyeliner or a felt-tip eyeliner you can easily draw a straight edge. An eyeliner in the shape of a crayon is more suitable for a smokey eye look. It is best to draw the eyelid line from the inside out.

3. kohl

White kohl pencil on the waterline of the lower lash line makes your eyes appear larger and makes them shine. Redness is so easily spirited away. If the contrast with a white Kohl is too strong for you, you can also go for a light pink shade. If you have small eyes, it is better to be careful with black Kohl, because the lines you draw around the lash line only make the eye look smaller.

4. mascara

Curved, long and voluminous lashes are the key to big eyes. Your lashes will look best if you lift them up with an eyelash curler just before applying the mascara. If you blow-dry them briefly before applying the mascara, the heat will give them an even better curl. But be careful, test the temperature of the forceps before use and if in doubt, let them cool down first to avoid injuries to the eyes. Then apply the pliers to the lash line, close and wait ten seconds. Then the volume mascara is used. Apply several times with the brush in slight zigzag movements for an irresistible look. Caution: Too much mascara quickly causes fly legs. Less is often more here, because no woman wants to have clumped lashes.

Eye make-up according to eye shape

Hide drooping eyelids

Drooping eyelids tend to make the eyes look smaller and more tired. With the so-called banana make-up technique, however, you can compensate for this well. That’s the way to do it:

  • As a foundation you first apply a light eye shadow on the entire movable eyelid. It is best to use an applicator for this.
  • For a natural result, do not apply too much color and let the edges run out gently.
  • Then apply a darker color in the eyelid crease – in the shape of a banana.
  • Using the tip of the brush, trace the eyelid crease, using a little more of the dark eye shadow at the outer edge of the eye.

Close-set eyes

Close-set eyes benefit from light shimmer eye shadow at the corners of the eyes and a rich eye shadow color at the outer corners of the eyes. The mascara should be applied more on the outside than on the inside. In this way the eye appears more open. Also, do not start the eyelid line until the middle of the eyelid.

Eyes set wide apart

Use dark eye shadow on the eyelid and a lighter shade under the eyebrows. Emphasize the inner corner of the eye with dark kohl. If you apply make-up to eyes that are wide apart, your face may appear a little narrower.

Deep-set eyes

To highlight deep-set eyes, you should accentuate the movable eyelid with a light eye shadow. Don’t use black for eyeliner and use colors like dark gray or brown instead.

Make up eyebrows

Eyebrow makeup has been a big trend for some time now, which is why there are more and more products on the market that you can use to style your brows. For the perfect eyebrows, you can choose between different beauty products. On the one hand there is eyebrow gel, on the other hand there are eyebrow pencils. With both methods you can make up and shape your eyebrows. If you have a very light skin tone. You should rather not use dark brown tones or even black. You are on the safe side if you match the color of the eyebrows to your hair color. Do not worry if it does not work the first time. Drawing well-formed eyebrows requires some practice and patience.

Which make-up matches my eye color?

Blue eyes

To make your blue eyes really shine, various shades of brown are particularly suitable. Combine a metallic color such as gold, copper or bronze with a brownish tone to make your eyes look even more intense.

Green eyes

Green eyes sparkle most when they are underlined with violet tones like eggplant. A classic eyelid line in a dark purple also looks great.

Brown eyes

Women with brown eyes are welcome to dig a little deeper into the color pot. Correctly applied, they do not look over-painted even with brighter colors. In summer, aqua tones like turquoise are very beautiful.

How does my eye make-up last longer?

If you feel as if you are already without make-up after half a day, you can easily get rid of the problem. Before applying a primer, use it as the basis for a long-lasting eye make-up. When you are finished with your make-up, you should make it permanent with a fixing spray. This way your make-up will last much longer and ensure a radiant look all day long.


yeah well okay so today I'm going to show you how to do use ...

yeah well okay so today I'm going to show you how to do use one single eyeshadow all over the entire eye using an eye sketching technique which is what I would do on anybody's eye just to map it out and make life a bit simpler I picked up the wrong bloody box there let's use purple I haven't used purple in a while okay let's have a look yeah we'll use this palette here so this is a Tom Ford palette which we're gonna use because the first one picked up now with the kind of technique that we're talking about here what you're doing is you're just drawing out the eye in its entirety and with this technique you go underneath the eye and around but you go all the way around to the inner corner and that's kind of important because you want this to be a more structured look so we're gonna start by applying a light eyeshadow and we're just going to apply this to the eyelid itself and as things move on what's gonna happen is you are going to probably reapply the light eyeshadow because it just gets blended you know into the rest of the face I've now just lost my brush no fun to be around okay let's make a stuff so you want to start on the lower lash line as always and it's easier to trace than it is to draw so we're gonna trace our lash line because that's what we've got so we're gonna start here and so I'm always gonna go darker then perhaps you would but the reason being is because I just want you to see the placement so go underneath the eye and then just past your own natural eye line which is right here now you're just going to go join it and wrap it around but when you open your eye you should barely be able to see it it's really in the socket of the eye and then go right the way in to this inner corner so you're almost touching tearduct so it's this complete tracing of the color so this is mapped at my eye so it goes underneath the eye don't worry if it's rounded at the moment we're gonna pull it out slightly but it then goes right here and then it turns and comes right back in to that inner corner now we're gonna just soften it by blending it so you want to just take a blending brush or a crease brush and now very lightly just start to go over that now I always place two hands here because I'm old and my skin moves more than somebody who's in their 20s so that's why I do that it just stabilizes things for me and you just want to soften this line so you're blending it and that's why we stuck to really close to the own eye in the crease because if we already draw that line and up here baton we blend it's right the way up to the eyebrow so there we go now this is the bit right here at the outside corner we can now decide whether we want to keep it more rounded or whether we just want to just slightly bring it out which is what we tend to do most of the time now the only time you wouldn't bring the eye out and this is and it's entirely up to you but if you have a very very round eye a really round a true and I particularly if it's a large eye as well bringing it out just looks so dramatic no matter what color you use so it's always better to stick with your own eye shape so this is based on my own eyes shape so my eye isn't particularly around so you can see I've not gone round I'm more pulled it out so now you've kind of got the shape now what we want to do is just darken the outside corner just a tiny bit more so again starting right here and I'm just drawing it in where I want it so right here that's the outside corner and then again a touch underneath the lash line and joining it and then I'll get my blending brush and I'll soften it and you see as I'm softening it I'm bringing it onto that light eyeshadow color so there's this graduation from light all the way to dark and you can see that I'm stopping here are not bringing it in anymore and again just soften underneath so now you get a choice of whether or not you want to deepen the lash line area so we've got kind of two options here right so I'm just going to rewrite this part of the eye and let me just blend it slightly here so you've got two options you could leave it to is all dark on the outside or you could go in and just very lightly from this outside corner just sort of lightly brush it across the top of the lash line and that just has to add a bit more balance to the eye so let's find let's find a celestial shade somewhere I'm sure I've got one sure I do that's certainly not one is a silly boy that's not one either half of God's sake so yeah we'll use we use more of a purple one and I'm just gonna now pop this just here and I'm just going to kind of work it into the eyelid a little bit just to give it more of a a sort of a purpley feel to this look it just adds a little bit more just had something so because I've done that I actually know from the lighten it slightly so I'm going in with that original color and just lightly kind of just pressing it onto the eyelid so I'm actually gonna use a concealer because it's just I need this area just a little bit lighter than the rest of the face so I'm just gonna use a concealer and I'm just gonna Pat it in and it just adds a bit of it's just adding a bit of brightness to this area and it's gonna help us just to tidy up that outside corner okay so I'm just gonna go back in and just very lightly just apply a tiny amount of that light color just in that inner tear duct area here and we'll put some mascara so give the lashes a little curl now I'm gonna use this one actually by benefit which isn't my favorite mascara but there is something about it that is quite good it's the bad gal lash which you know whatever but it's not a terrible mascara at source not my favorite but I do quite like it it builds up quite quickly and with this kind of look it's not a bad idea to go a bit thick and kind of clumpy with it and I like to work the lash with the same amount of product it's on there so I'm not reading it I'm just gonna kind of keep going over until I peaked out as much as I can from it now you don't have to but I always think with this kind of look it's always good to just darken the the lashline area you know the wartime I just I love it I just love it so going right in to that water line into the inner corner just gives it this kind of really nice about and I don't like to kind of just take it just slightly out as well just to give it a kind of more lived-in feel and we'll finish the lashes and then we'll apply that to the upper line as well oh there you have it so that's how you draw or how I would draw out an eye on somebody because you can literally you're just following the lashline you're following the eye shape that person has and then you're adding to it but again it is always kind of best to err on the side of caution if you have a very round eye now what can happen with this look or any look in general when you're trying to sketch your own eye shape is that you have your standard I shape so mine would be a relatively standardized shape although it's becoming a bit more hooded as I get older if you have a very deep set eye so what that means is is that the eye socket looks like it's going back into the head it's a very deep set eyes then you can spot on a mile away what can happen is if you go too deep into the crease because the crease is set way back into the head so if you put a very dark color in there what happens is it can look like this cavernous cave that's going on and that may or may not be a look that you're going for so when you're thinking about doing a smoky eye you want to keep most of the deep onto the lid because remember the lid goes way back into the eye socket and when it comes to the crease a lot of people with deep set eyes go into the crease and put it inside that's just gonna make it look even deeper you want to actually place it more on the bone itself so use that medium color onto the bone of the eye itself or with really deep set eyes you can just focus on the eye itself so you could do a light cut because you've got a lot of space you've got a lot of eye that's visible so you could concentrate use a light color on the inner corner darker color on the outside corner blend it in you don't have to work on the creases all but there you go that's the effect we've used purple which I'm really pleased with because I think purple is such a fun color to use yeah there you go absolutely splendid bloody bloody spending thanks for watching I'll see y'all soon bye bye

Apply eye shadow for perfect eye make-up

Applying eye shadow is easy with the right tips. We have step-by-step instructions for you to make your eye make-up perfect.

Whether with glitter, a slight shimmer or a matt effect: eye shadows are available in all colors and variations. It is the color highlight of eye make-up and makes our eyes shine – provided it is applied correctly!

Apply eyeshadow in 4 steps

Step 1: The eye shadow base

Before you start applying eye shadow, you should first use a primer as a base. Apply it on the eyelid up to the eyebrow. The primer ensures that the eye shadow comes on better and that the color does not settle in the eyelid crease later.

Step 2: Light Eye Shadow

First use a light shade of color and apply it evenly with a wide brush to the moving eyelid.

Step 3: Dark eye shadow

Now you can choose a darker shade and apply it with a finer brush in a semicircle to the eyelid crease, around the corners of the eyes and along the lash line.

Tip for finding the right color: If you want to make up your eyes with earthy tones, for example, first a cream and then a cognac or khaki tone is the right choice. With a blue eye make-up, on the other hand, it would first be a light and then a more intense shade of color.

Step 4: Blend eyeshadow

Finally, blend the eyeshadow by blurring the color upwards and outwards. The stronger accents create the optical effect of lifting the eye.

Extra tip: If you want, you can also apply a rosé or mother-of-pearl eye shadow to the inner corner of the eye as a highlight. This opens the view and makes the eyes shine.
