Eyes That Mesmerize: Effortless Elegance with Simple Eye Makeup Secrets
If you're just starting out with makeup, eye makeup can be a great way to give your face a makeover. It can help highlight your features and give your face a pop of colour. To help you make the most of your eyes, we've put together a list of some cool tips on how to do simple eye makeup at home.
Easy Eye Makeup Tips
1. Use an Eye Primer
Using an eye primer before simple classy eye makeup will ensure that your eye makeup adheres to your eyelids for a longer period of time. Using an eye primer creates a smooth surface that allows your makeup to glide effortlessly onto your eyelids. If you have oily eyelids, you can’t skip this step.
2. Set the Primer
If you want to get the most out of your eyeshadow, start with a light, matte shade and blend it in over your eyelids to get your primer set and remove any buildup. This will help keep your shadows from wrinkling on your eyelids. You can use a flat, stiff brush to apply the shade.
You can use the Lakmē Absolute Explore Eye Paint to add sparkle and shimmer to your eyelids. This crème eyeshadow is enriched with cocoa butter, designed to prevent your lids from feeling dry as you shine through the night. Its smooth crème texture ensures effortless application, making it the perfect eyeshadow for those who never settle and are never subtle.
3. Add Colours to the Crease
If you're just starting out with simple eye makeup looks, add some dimension and depth to your crease transition look with a medium brown/ taupe eyeshadow. The easiest way to do this is to use a small fluffy blending brush and fill in the crease with your eyeshadow. Run the brush back and forth over your crease like you would with a windshield wiper. Make sure to use a light hand because you don't want any harsh lines in your crease or a patchy look.
The Lakmē Absolute Explore Eye Shadow Stick is best for easy simple eye makeup. This user-friendly stick offers an effortless, mess-free application, whether you're a makeup pro or a beginner, ensuring a smooth and easy glide. With a choice of 9 highly pigmented shades – blues, pinks, silvers, or golds – each boasts a luxe, lightweight texture for comfortable wear.
4. Define and Highlight
Apply the lightest color from your eyeshadow palette to the inner corner of your brows, just below the arch. This will give your brows a clean, sharp look. Use a small, dense brush to apply a light gold/champagne shimmer eyeshadow to the inner corner just below the tear duct.
5. Blending is the Key
If you want to get the most out of your perfect simple eye makeup, one of the best things you can do is take your time and blend in the pigments that are already on your eyelids. Make sure you don't have any harsh lines peeking out, so your eye makeup is as natural as you can make it. Start by outlining your crease with a darker brown shade, then fill in the lid space with your chosen colour with a fluffy brush. Make sure to stack the pigments together and blend well so the colours look brighter.
6. Give it a Finishing Touch
To take your simple Indian eye makeup look to the next level, define your waterline with kajal, outline your lash line with eyeliner, and get long and voluminous lashes with a thick coat of mascara.
FAQs about Eye Makeup
How do I choose the right eyeshadow colours for my eyes?
Consider your eye colour and skin tone. Neutral shades like browns, taupes, and creams generally suit everyone. For contrast, consider shades opposite your eye colour on the colour wheel (e.g., purples for green eyes).
How do I prevent eyeshadow fallout when applying makeup?
Tap excess eyeshadow off your brush before applying and consider doing your eye makeup before your face makeup. Using an eyeshadow primer can also help keep eyeshadow in place.
Can I use eyeshadow as eyeliner?
Yes, eyeshadow can be used as eyeliner. Dampen an angled brush, dip it into the eyeshadow, and apply it along the lash line for a softer, more diffused look.
