Re: Eye Make - Up Tips & Tricks :)
I love eye makeup! Eyes are my favorite feature to play up. I am addicted to loose, shimmery eyeshadows. I also like solid shadows, but I always buy them with a bit of shimmer. Why so? First, I think it looks really pretty and luminous (however, I don't get GLITTERY products for an everyday look, just a natural shimmer!), and I notice that it stays on MUCH better throughout the day. Shimmery shadow won't crease on me and the color lasts much better. I also tend to not go through the eyeshadow as quickly, so I save money!
I also love black eyeliner. I can apply it natural, by using a pencil and smudging, or more dramatic by using liquid for a cat-eye look. I usually line the inner rims of my bottom lids with a kohl pencil, but I'll apply it at the lash lines if I want a more dramatic look.
One trick I find very helpful is to use a white shimmer in the inner corners of your eyes to brighten them up (or gold if the white is too pale for you). You can also put a tiny bit on your brow bone. Very pretty!
