makeup eyes (400x400)A Yiddish proverb says the “eyes are the mirror of the soul” and they most certainly are one of the most important features in your overall appearance, so you’ll want to make your eyes look as beautiful as possible. Eye makeup is so affordable, fairly easy to apply and it delivers a lot of bang for the buck. Whether you have large orbs like Angelina Jolie’, almond-shaped eyes like Julia Roberts or hooded peepers like Renee Zellweger, there are many ways to use eye makeup products and color to make your eyes stand out:

Under-eye concealer

  • Choose an under-eye concealer that has a peachy or pink undertone and apply sparingly to avoid a creasy, cakey mess.
  • Bobbi Brown’s creamy concealer kit covers dark circles without accentuating fine lines and wrinkles and the kit’s Fuss-free Sheer Pressed Powder sets the concealer for a long-lasting wear.

Eye shadow

  • Choose colors that contrast with your eye color.
  • Brown eyes: navy, sapphire or green
  • Blue eyes: brown, bronze or taupe
  • Green-eyes: purple, amethyst or burgundy
  • Hazel eyes: green

If you wear eyeglasses and want you want your eyes to stand out, apply a luminescent champagne highlighter under your brows. On your upper lids, use a sparkling eyeliner in colors that contrast with your natural eye color. (See “eye shadow” above for more info.)

Liquid eyeliner

  • Liquid eyeliner perfectly defines eyes and is, oftentimes, waterproof, too. The products with a short handle and small, tapered brush work better than the longer-handled, skinny ones.
  • Choose colors that contrast with your natural eye color. (See “eye shadow” above for more info.)
  • Apply in short dashes rather than in one fell swoop.
  • Finish with a small upwards swoop near the outside corners of your eyes to lift and open them up.

Pencil eyeliner

  • Choose a color that contrasts with your eye color. (See “eye shadow” above for more info.)
  • Be sure to sharpen the pencil.
  • Look up and gently pull your eyelid taut with your ring finger. Then draw the pencil along your lash line.

Be sure to tone down your lip color so your lips don’t compete with your eyes.

Mascara

  • Think of mascara as the magic wand that opens up your eyes.
  • Choose colors that contrast with your natural eye color. (See “eye shadow” above for more info.)
  • Start at the base of the lashes and sweep the mascara up to the ends of your lashes using a zigzag motion.
  • If you use an eyelash curler, use it before you apply mascara.
