How To Get Beautiful Eyes

Your eyes are the centre of attention in every conversation you have. A traditional element of beauty and grace, your eyes offer character, integrity and personality. Whenever you are face to face with someone, there’s a good chance they are looking you in the eye.

Enhance Your Eyes With Eyeliner

Using eyeliner correctly will enhance the appearance of your eyes and make them stand out. Black is a traditional colour for eyeliner, but you can also experiment with a range of colours to suit your tone and mood. Eyeliner gives your eyes a finished look, as well as making your lashes look longer.

Many women who don’t wear eyeshadow can still make their eyes pop with a little liner and mascara. It’s easy to apply and you can choose a crisp line or dramatic smudging for a more exotic look.

Kohl Pencils

Kohl pencils are the easiest way to apply eyeliner. Make sure your pencil is freshly sharpened before you begin. This not only gives you a better line, but also makes sure there are no dust particles or contaminants on the surface of your lining pencil that could irritate the eye.

With your kohl pencil, simply trace along the lash line for both bottom and upper lash. If you choose, you can smudge the outside corner in a slight arch to add some smokey drama.

Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner takes more practice and can be a little messy if you’re not careful. However, it does give you a deep and bold contour around the eye. Liquid liner is ideal for adding coloured liner to edge out the top and bottom rims of the eye. With liquid liner, you should apply it just below the lash line on the bottom, and just above the lash line for the top.

With liquid liner, you can also apply it in small dots spaced apart and then use a cotton swab or your fingertip to blend it into a smooth line. Again, this takes a little practice, but the results are quite nice.

Using eyeliner is a great way to enhance any set of eyes. If you haven’t been using it, pick up a kohl pencil and make adding eyeliner a staple in your morning routine.

Fabulous Fluttering Eyelashes

Not everyone is graced with long and elegant eyelashes. Eyelashes really make our eyes stand out, along with offering protection to the eye itself.

The natural function of the eyelash is to ward off any invaders that would damage or cause problems for the eyes. Things like dust particles and other debris that float through the air constantly, yet are barely visible, can often cause irritations and infections if they come into direct contact with the eye. The lashes are a shield that surrounds the eye and protects it from such debris and dust.

For most women, however, they consider the eyelashes to be an important part of their overall facial appearance. For this reason, women take steps to make their lashes look luscious and fluttering.

If you weren’t born with long lashes, that’s okay. These days there are numerous ways to make your lashes appear longer, fuller and thicker.

Curling Lashes

Curling your lashes really gives them depth and volume. It’s also considered quite feminine, and it’s really easy to do. An eyelash curler is placed over the lash, and the lash is then crimped to make it curl and flutter.

Black Mascara

A nice coat of deep black mascara is the perfect touch for any woman’s lashes. It makes the lashes appear longer and attracts attention to your eyes in general. However, you don’t have to stick with traditional black.

Mascara is available in all sorts of interesting colours. You can choose a crystal clear coating with no colour at all, or you can experiment with browns, blues, greens, reds and even white. Depending on your sense of adventure and style, you can even use glitter mascara to wow up your eyes.

False Eyelashes

False eyelashes are also a traditional favourite to enhance the look of lashes. They are available in synthetic or real hair formats. While the real hair lashes are quite a bit more expensive than their counterparts, they give a realistic look to your lashes. However, either type of lash will add volume and fabulous flutter to your eyelashes.

Applying false eyelashes may not be easy, but it doesn’t have to be a pain, as long as you learn how to apply them properly.
