Everyone who wears makeup needs a good arsenal of eye makeup products. If you’re just starting to wear makeup, it can be tricky to know which to use.
Here are four eye makeup products every woman needs to start a great makeup collection!
A good eye cream – Even if you’re still in your 20′s and a long way off from dealing with wrinkles, one of the best eye makeup products you can invest your money in is one you can’t even see once it’s on. An eye cream will help repair fine lines and protect the delicate skin around your eyes from sun damage.
Today’s eye creams are diverse. They do everything from firm and tighten to protect against the sun’s rays with an SPF. If you’re just starting out, try to find one with an SPF of at least 15 and don’t worry about the other frills.
Concealer – Nothing covers up a late night or too many hours in front of the computer screen like concealer. It’s an eye makeup product that will enhance every other product you use on your eyes. If you choose one with a yellow base, it will lighten the appearance of dark circles.
When using it, place a thin layer of concealer on the skin of your lower lid using your ring finger. Since it’s your weakest, your ring finger applies just the right amount of pressure to keep from snagging that delicate skin.
Once applied, concealer will help brighten the area around your eyes and draw the focus up to your peepers.
A go-to eye liner – Everyone has a favorite. Finding yours will mean you’ve got at least one product in your makeup bag that makes you feel confident each time you put it on.
For some women, their go-to eyeliner is a bold liquid formula. For others, it’s the ease of a pencil.
Take your time learning how to apply your favorite. It’s tricky to use at first, but it’s a skill that once mastered gets easier every time.
Two application tips: To make the line look more natural, be sure to smudge it just a bit. Also, you can tilt the line up just a hair at the edges for a more youthful look.
A good set of brushes – Throw out the wimpy applicators that come with most eye makeup products. To really graduate into makeup application for grown-ups, you need a decent set of brushes.
You’ll want a wide-set one that’s rounded at the top for applying light shades like highlighter, an angled brush for use in the crease of your eye, and a smaller eye makeup brush for applying color to your lids.
Other eye makeup brushes like a smudging brush and an eyebrow brush are also nice, but not essential.
