The best makeup tutorial
Learning to use eye makeup is no easy task, even for seasoned beauty buffs. Filipino women love to wear makeup. If you have a tough time decoding all those tricky makeup tutorials, we have an easy guide to each part of the eye so you know where all those eyeliners, mascaras, and eyeshadows should go:
If you want your brows to “pop” and open up your eye area, you can add a matte or shimmery pale eyeshadow or chubby pencil directly under the brow. For a matte look, try Benefit High Brow Highlight & Lift Pencil ($22, ulta.com); if you prefer shimmer, try Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Soft Pearl ($3, amazon.com).
Typically, your main shade or shades of eyeshadow go on the mobile part of your eyelid, but you can get creative with your eyeliner here, as well. Some people have a lot of space here, while others have very little — it varies from person to person. For tanned skin Filipino women bronze blush on is perfect for our skin.
Between your brow bone and eyelid, applying a darker shade of eyeshadow here, right along your eye socket, adds dimension to your eye. A deep brown like Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Secret Service ($19, sephora.com) is always a great choice. If you have hooded eyes, which is when your upper lid covers most of your mobile lid when your eyes are open, play with different placements for crease shadow, opening your eyes after each test to see which placement makes your crease shadow visible.
The outermost corner of the eye where eyeliner or deeper shades of eyeshadow are typically applied in a “V” shape, though you can blend your makeup into a “C” shape for a softer effect using a brush like the e.l.f. Blending Brush ($3, ulta.com).
Right along and above the edges of your upper eyelid where your eyelashes begin, you can define your eye with eyeliner, a dark eyeshadow, or even simply mascara.
The inner rim of the eye, the waterline can be host to dark eyeliner along the top waterline to make the base of your lashes look thicker, or along the the bottom waterline to enhance a smoky look. Pale nude eyeliner can also be used along the bottom waterline to make the eye look wider and more awake. Just be sure you choose something waterproof, like Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner ($25, sephora.com).
Though not necessary for every look, your lower lash line, just below the waterline, is where liner and shadow can be applied to define the eyes.
This is the inner corner of the eye, and where you can add a little pale, shimmery shadow here to open things up. You can use the same one you used under your brow bone!
