How to Apply Eye Makeup in less than 15 minutes.
When its time for that special outing, you want to focus on making your eyes amazing. Here’s how to apply eye makeup very fast and easily.
What You Need
Prep your eyes with concealer. Concealer can be used to cover up under-eye circles. To cover dark undereye circles, apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Pat, never rub with your ring finger (this finger tends to have the softest pad) until it disappears.
Then, apply eye base to your lid. Eye base is the secret to keeping your shadow in place for hours. Without properly priming your lid first, your eyeshadow will likely end up a greasy line in your crease.
Follow with eyeliner. Dark eyeshadows work great as eyeliners. Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner corner to the outer corner. Follow with liner on bottom eyes, but only line from the middle of the eye out. Smudge the bottom line with a Q-tip or your finger. You don’t want a prominent line. For a smokey eye, use a brush to pat in a dark eyeshadow along the upper lid and below the lid. You don’t want a stark line, instead you want to blend it so it’s “smudge-y.”
Apply eyeshadow. It’s great to use a three-toned shadow and build from lids to brow. Start with a light color that almost matches your lid. Sweep the color across the lid and up to your browbone. Follow with a medium color across your lid only. Build on this with a darker color in the crease. Blend the colors well.
Brighten your eyes with a highlighter. This step involves only the inside part of the eye. Putting a bit of your lightest eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eye will brighten it significantly .This totally makes eyes “pop.”
Highlight your brow. Take the same light eyeshadow and dab it on your browbone, concentrating on your mid-brow outward. Blend with your finger. A super light shadow will do.
Apply mascara. Place the wand of your mascara brush at the bottom of lashes and wiggle back and forth. Follow with another few sweeps of the wand. Apply to bottom lashes as well.
