Dear LovelySkin, What makeup will make my eyes pop? -Anonymous
When you’re doing your makeup, it’s fun to play up your eyes because there are so many different looks you can try. If you want your eyes to pop without looking overdone, there are a few simple tricks you can use. Brightening the area, using highlighters and adding bright colors will ensure that your eyes are the focus of the look.
If you want your eyes to stand out, the first thing you need to do is minimize the look of dark circles and under-eye bags. Choose a concealer that will illuminate the area and last all day such as bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener.
Applying makeup to a few strategic places around the eyes will make them pop without looking overdone. Choose a shimmery shade such as jane iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Oyster and apply it to the inner corner of eyes to make them appear more open.
You can use YOUNGBLOOD Eye-Illuminating Duo Pencil on two other areas to make your eyes pop. Apply the shimmery shade beneath the brow bone to open up the eyes and brighten your complexion. You can also use the matte shade on the inner waterline to give the illusion of larger eyes.
A splash of bright color keeps the focus on your eyes and makes them pop. Use glo minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner in a distinct color such as Teal on the upper lash line. You can keep it simple or go dramatic with a cat eye to create the exact look that you want.
The last step to making your eyes pop is to curl your lashes with a tool such as Tweezerman Classic Lash Curler. Curling your lashes and then applying one coat of mascara makes them look instantly longer and fuller.
