Remedy For Puffy Lidded Eyes or Eyes With No Defined Crease
1. Apply a touch of black eyeshadow in the center of the upper lashline.
2. Sweep a taupe or natural color eyeshadow over the crease and slightly above it. .....(Remember, we're working with minimal space here...not Cher's lids! ).....
3. Use an eyeshadow shade that's lighter on the browbones and lids.
That way, when the light hits your peepers, the highlighted area of the eyes will stand out as the crease appears, well, creased! The upper lids lined with black shadow in the center provides a contrast with the highlighted lid to create more visible lids.
Eyeliner Too Harsh? - An easy remedy...
If you don't like the sharpness of your eyeliner, you can soften it using your eye shadow brush by adding a little powder shadow of a similar shade.
Using An Eyeshadow Pencil - Did you know the secret?
You should not draw the pencil across your eyelid as this could cause stretching of the skin.
Instead, apply the color to the palm of your hand, then pick up some of the color with your pinky and apply gently to your eyelid.
Younger Looking Eyes - Oh, the tricks...
The first step is to reduce fine lines. So apply a little eye cream on the brow bone and under the eye.
Next dab on a concealer that matches your skin tones.
The last step is to line the eye with a white pencil just beneath the lash line. This will give the impression of larger and brighter eyes.
