Eye Makeup Tips

It is a real art to make the eyes come alive. And like any good artist you will have to master the exacting techniques of accurate Brush work and careful colour-blending. Almond shaped eyes are considered to be the ideal. So when making-up eyes, one tries with the help of light and dark eye make-up to define the necessary changes to give the eyes an almond appearance.
Eye Pencils
Whether they are being used to shade or define the eyes, lips or brows, pencils should glide on smoothly, without dragging the skin. If you have difficulties with applying because  they are too soft and crumbly, place them in the freezer for a few minutes to harden before applying. Similarly, if they are too hard and pull at the skin, soften the point first by gently running it over the back of the hand.
Eyebrow Pencils
To fill sparse brows and enhance the overall shape eyebrow pencils can be used. Choose a sharpened pencil in the shade closest to the natural colour of your eyebrows and fill any open spaces using short irregular strokes to simulate real hair. Defining the brows, avoid drawing on one strong line as this will look false. Define over the brows in small feathered strokes or soften it by dusting with translucent powder or roll a cotton bud over the brows.
Applying Eyeshadow
Use eyeshadow, in striking, slightly shimmering tones, applied with a light hand, can give the face an air of luminosity. Eyeshadow should always glide on smoothly, and can be used to subtly change or enhance the shape of the eyes, to add simple definition or to make a strong impact, depending on your choice of colour. It is also helpful to mask the blueness many of us have on the skin on our eyelids. 

Eyeliner Application
Eyeliner Application requires a steady hand. But if you find it difficult to apply liner with precision, try drawing it on using small feathered stokes and then blend with a fine-tipped brush or the point of a cotton bud. For easing, put a mirror on a flat surface and then work looking down into it.
  
Eyebrows
Factors to be considered before shaping your brows:

The facial distance from hairline to chin.
The distance between both the eyes.
The hair color and color of eyebrows.
The facial distance from hairline to chin.
The width of the forehead from temple to temple.
The thickness of the brows

How to apply eye mascara
With the advent of modern mascaras there is no need to pump the wand in and out of its container before applying such as it can actually cause overload and result in clogged lashes. Apply only enough products on the wand to coat the lashes, so any excess should be wiped off with a tissue. You should roll the wand through the lashes to help curl-definition; always work on the upper lashes from underneath to avoid overloading and keep mascara on the lower lashes to a minimum, especially if you are looking tired or have a tendency to rub your eyes a lot.
