Playing up the eyes and making them look beautiful is a guaranteed way to feel stunning. Some people prefer making the most of their lips, but I think making the most of the eyes is so much better! The eyes say a lot about us. We can play them up and look sultry, sexy, or even playful. You can create any look you like! This guide will help you to make the most of your eyes if you need a hand:
Invest in Shadow Brushes
Eyeshadow brushes are a little better to apply your makeup than your fingers. While your fingers can be perfectly fine tools to get the makeup on your eyelids, they aren’t as precise as you’d like them to be. Even if you’re not sure how to use the brushes yet, you should invest. Brushes like Real Techniques come with tutorials to show you exactly how to use them and get a professional finish.

Find Shades of Shadow to Suit
You can get eyeshadows in every colour you could possibly imagine. There are shades of brown, gold, green...even colours like pink. It all depends on your style and your colouring. Different shadows will suit somebody with pale skin and blue eyes when compared to someone with darker skin and brown eyes. Make sure you do your research to find out which kind of shadows make your eyes and skin ‘pop’. Some might wash you out, so be careful.

Use Black and White Cleverly
Black and white can be used in a clever way to create the kind of look you’re going for. Black is usually used to line the top of the eyelid, which is great for creating a cat-eye kind of shape, or just making the eye look more defined. You can line the bottom lid with black too if you like, but you must remember that this can make the eye seem smaller. If you want to make the eye look bigger and brighter, then white eyeliner is the way to go. You can even dab white shadow in the corners of your eyes to open them up and brighten them. You won’t believe the difference!

Wear Glasses to Suit Your Face Shape
If you need glasses, don’t look at it as a shame. Make the most of it and wear fashionable glasses to suit your face shape. Depending on your face shape, different glasses will look good on you. Some people wear glasses even though they don’t need them, just as a fashion accessory. Look at it that way! If you really don’t like wearing your glasses, it might benefit you to research the laser eye surgery cost. It can be pricey, but it’ll be worth it in the long run!  

Curl Your Lashes

Curling the lashes is a wonderful way to open up the eyes and make them look bigger. Doing this before you apply mascara will make your lashes curlier and look longer. You should never leave the house without curling them! I heat them up with a hairdryer slightly first to make the curl last.

Have fun making the most of your eyes!
