Sometimes eye shadow is the hardest thing to pick out. You don’t know what colors to put on before you exit your home and head out into the crazy world. Well people, I’m here to help! Your eyes make your whole entire makeup look come together.
Looking to define your eyes? Define them with an eye liner (preferably liquid or gel liner). When lining your eyes, extend the liner slightly out of the corner of each eye; to make a cat eye look. Make sure the liner is thick enough so you can view it when your eyes are open. Below are some great options to use.
If Kat Von D’s liner is too expensive and you’re looking for a cheaper option try:
Want to give your eyes a wide awakening? Brighten up your eyes by applying some shimmer on the inner corner of your eyes near your tear ducts. You can use highlighters or shimmery eye shadows. Try this out!
Don’t leave your brows out! Eyebrows will ALWAYS be very important part a whole look. They make the frame for your eyes. They give you expression and help create bold statements. So fill them in with a dark brown shadow or pencil! At the same time PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be careful! Don’t come out looking like a clown by going too crazy filling them in. So if you’re not sure your brows look good, please ask someone or get advice from a professional makeup artist, before you come out in the world with crazy brows and people talking about you. Bad brows can really mess you up…because if everything else looks nice on you besides your brows, that’s the first thing people are going to notice about you. Below are some brow fillers you can use.

A cheaper option.
Last but not least, MASCARA, MASCARA, MASCARA!!!! Mascara can really make or break the statement you’re trying to make. It adds a vibrant, energetic look to your face. It adds to the bold statement you’re going for. So don’t forget to apply it! If you have black or brown hair, I would suggest using black mascara. For those of you with red or blonde hair, reach for that brown mascara! If you want to take a further step and add an extra bold statement, put on some false lashes (this is completely optional). False lashes always add an extra flirty, feminine touch and they don’t have to always be crazy and dramatic. So if you have time and know how to apply false lashes, knock yourself out and put them on! Some get mascara options are:
TARTEGifted™ Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara, $23
Of course there’s always a cheaper option!
MAYBELLINE Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Mascara, $7.99
My rule number one in makeup, if you don’t like it, you can always take it off! So, go ahead, take a chance and give it a try. Go put on some makeup!
