In this article, we talk about different ways to apply face and eye makeup, including step-by-step instructions for beginners, as well as the best ways to apply eye makeup: mascara, eyeliner, and more.
The smoky eye is one of the most popular and dreaded eyelid makeup trends, and it looks challenging and time-consuming to pull off. We actually have a super handy tutorial for you, and all you need for a quick and intense smoky eye effect is basic black eyeliner.
Just draw a black line with the pencil, no need for precision, and then paint it. Then, with the same brush, apply a light brown eyeshadow with delicate strokes along the baseboard line.
Finish blending the edges for as long as possible – the more you blend the shadow, the more natural it will look. Complete the look by adding a little sparkle to your makeup by applying a lighter or brighter color to the inner corners.
2. Foxy eye look with tape
Drawing a precise line with just brushes and shadows can be difficult for beginners, but you can use this tutorial. You’ll find it much easier to create a soft, sly-eyed look. We’ll create this look using masking tape, an essential tool for many makeup artists.
The first step is to apply a light brown eyeshadow in the crease of the eye, then a milky white eyeshadow all over the eyelid. Using an angled brush or a fine-tipped brush, create a dark brown shadow in the shape of a winged eyeliner on the inner and outer corners of the eyes. After removing the tape, you will see how well the line is drawn. The look in your eyes will surprise you.
3. One eyeshadow color
The most impressive beauty tutorials tend to use the least amount of product. Sometimes you really don’t need to complicate things with more shadows, as you can achieve more traditional eye makeup with a dark crease and lighter lid with just one color and 2 brushes.
First, choose a shade that you think matches your skin tone. Apply all over the eye socket with a flat brush and blend with a blending brush. Be patient when blending the color, as this will make a significant difference in areas where you want the shade to be lighter. You can add skin if you want, but the look is complete. You achieved a beautiful ombre look using just one color.
