Easy steps to looking good
How to : Always look your best
I’ve always been a sucker for perfect eye makeup. With that being said I decided to a blog post on how to always get your eye makeup right . Its simple and if you get it right then you can always look your best.
Identify your eye shape. Whether it is Round,almond, Droop/sleepy, Small etc etc. Well most of the time we usually have a combination of 2 eye shapes. All this while I thought that I had almond eyes, its not until I did a course in makeup that i found out I had a mix of two eye shapes- Almond and slight droopy
Step 2 :
Understanding how contouring and highlighting works even for the eyes. Simple rule. if you want something or any part of you eye to look big, apply a light eye shadow and if you want something to look contoured or cur out, apply a darker color. And if you have sleepy eyes you will have to stop apply eye shadow just before your eye ends. This way you will give an illusion that you have open ( not so sleepy ) eyes
Once you get all this right, you’ve already won half the battle.The next step would be
Step 3 : This is just a basic rule. You can go as heavy as you want or as light as you want
a.) Apply a lighter color on the eyelids and your eyebrows.
b.) Apply a slightly darker color on your crease. usually we apply a nude light brown. This just gives you that super cut- crease look without looking too bold.
c.) The darkest shade should be applied to the outer corner of the eye. This is usually to define the shape of your eye. This is where you should define it the way you like.
Honestly this is all there is to eye makeup, We as makeup artists usually follow these steps to achieve any look. Be it dramatic or really simple
Alternatively you can apply something light in the inner corner of your eyes to bring the entire look together.
Step 5 :
Apply eyeliner, if the look requires more importantly if you feel the need to do so .
Step 6: Always apply mascara. Hope much you apply is totally up to you. But mascara is very very important.
Could Gucci be venturing into Makeup?
According to a market sources, the Italian brand might just be venturing into makeup. They have had a licensing contract with Procter & Gamble Co.’s Prestige division since 2006 and are developing a makeup line that would be out in 2014.
I think its high time they got their hands into making makeup considering the brand’s foray into fragrance under the P&G umbrella has been very successful. For instance Gucci Première, fronted by Blake Lively
