How to apply eye makeup - are you the typical woman who feels her eyes are her most positive feature and wants to learn everything she can to help her eyes look fabulous? Regardless of how minimal your routine is, rarely do you leave the house naked, even if it is only mascara.

The amount of information out there can be daunting. Would a common sense approach and some straight facts help to answer some of these concerns?

  • How come my makeup application never looks like the magazine pictures?
  • Do I need to keep up with the latest and greatest trends?
  • Do I have to be young to pull off a smoky eye?
  • Am I wearing an outdated style?
  • How can I simplify my routine if I am pressed for time?
  • Why does my makeup not last through the day?

How to Achieve Beautiful Eyes

To be successful in achieving your most beautiful eyes you first have to understand some basics. If for a moment you can think about clothing styles that work for you. You know there are certain styles that no matter what you do you will not be able to wear because of your body shape.

This same concept applies to our eyes. We all have an eye shape and it should be our number one consideration. If, for instance, you happen to have a hooded eye there is only so much you can do with makeup to change the proportion of your eye structure. (A hooded eye shape is where when you look in the mirror with your eyes relaxed and you can barely see your eyelids).

Applying eye makeup to enhance your eye shape will always be "in" and is the number one consideration for successful makeup application.
