Fashionistas out there might assume they know everything when it comes to applying eyeliner, eyeshadow and all other eye makeup essentials. However, Glamour Magazine reports what you know about applying eye makeup may be all wrong. Luckily, the style experts are here to help you make the right choices when it comes to your cosmetics.
Rule 1: Don't apply eyeliner across your entire lid
According to the experts, ladies should refrain from applying their eyeliner from the inner corner and all the way out to the edge of their lids as this tends to make the eyes look much smaller. Instead, girls should simply trace along the outer two-thirds of their eyes - leaving the inner corners open. This will not only help you stand out from your friends, but will also elongate the shape of your eyes.
Rule 2: Apply your liner in the right spot
Many young ladies out there might not be entirely sure about where exactly to apply their eyeliner on the bottom lids. Glamour reports eyeliner should always be applied directly onto the roots of your lashes. If you miss a few spots along the way, simply go back with a fine liner brush until the product is thick and even.
InStyle Magazine suggests girls first apply an eye primer on their lids before adding on eyeliner in order to avoid annoying smudging.
Rule 3: Use specific wands for better mascara application
Mascara is a must for any day or nighttime look and you may assume that the brush that comes with your mascara is a perfect option. According to Glamour Magazine, this is not the case. Instead, the style experts suggest ladies get a fan brush to use with their mascara as this type of wand helps to cover the base of the lashes. This gives your eyelashes more definition, making your eyes pop.
