According to the old adage, “Eyes are the windows to the soul”. The eyes are the first feature that a person notices on another’s face. Therefore, make sure that they provide a luminous and expressive framework that will invite others to see the beauty within.
The Perfect Eye Make-Up
Eye make-up should be applied according to the shape of the eyes in order to enhance the eyes in the best possible manner. Dark shades make the eye appear smaller, light shades on the other hand, make them appear bigger and help in opening them wider. After the application of eye-pencil or eye-liner, apply eye-shades to make you look softer. If you want to make yourself look dramatic, apply eye-liner after the application of eye-shadows. Then curl your lashes to add shape to them and finish the make-up with a layer of mascara. In order to add more volume to your eyelashes and to make them appear bigger, use a dense mascara. Do not line your inner edges of the lower eyelashes, it would make your eyes look small.
Removing Eye Make-Up
It is important to remove eye make-up properly so as to avoid pores from becoming blocked which may lead to spots. Here are a few tips to remove eye make-up. In order to remove make-up from the lids and brows. Take remover and apply with the tips of third finger and gently stroke in small circular movements. Now wipe off the remover from the lids and brows with a cotton pad, working from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. Do not rub or drag the skin. If you want to remove mascara, take a tissue paper and dab the remover on it, then wrap around the index finger. Now brush the tissue through the lashes from underneath. For the corner of the eye and lower lash-line, use a cotton bud dipped in remover. Afterwards, lightly pat the whole eye area dry with the tissue.
Vitamins A, B and C are very essential for the good care of the eyes. Carrot, celery, parsley and spinach contain a great amount of vitamin A. 8-10 hours of sleep is a must for bright eyes.
In order to keep eyes fresh, splash the eyes with cold water. Apply cotton wool pads, soaked in weak tea solution of rose water on the eyes. Press gently and leave for 10-15 minutes.
In order to massage the area around your eyes, use index finger, gently pressing the brow bones and working around your eye sockets. Sleep with an extra pillow to elevate your head and prevent fluids collecting around your eye area. Also, press gently against your eyes ice-cubes wrapped in tissue or cold tea bags. Take lots of water in your diet. Avoid smoke as it damages eye colour and freshness of the eyes. Wash your eyes with a blend of 30 ml rose water with 150 ml distilled water or you can use eye drops.
Do not work in dim light. Do not read continuously in buses and trains. Do not stare too long at anything without blinking the eyes. Blinking provides lubrications and relief from light. Do not rub the eyes too hard. To give momentary relief to the eyes, close the eyes with palms so that no light can enter. Now open the eyes in the palm cup and stare into this darkness for a minute.
Eyebrows and lashes should be brushed daily with a small brush. Rub eyebrows and eyelashes with olive oil or coconut oil or almond oil to encourage hair growth. For cleansing and nourishment of eyebrows, rub them with a little egg-white and rinse off after 10 minutes.
To exercise eyes, lift the eyes to the ceiling and then to the floor, repeat it for 10 minutes. Rest the eyes either by blinking rapidly or covering them with palms. Look straight ahead then slowly to left side and then to right side repeat it for 3-4 times. Make a circle first clockwise and then anticlockwise, with the eyes. Repeat for 5 times.
For Deep Set Eyes
Choose light eye-shadows, apply eye-shadow on your eyelid from the inner corner of your eye to the outer and a bit further. Light colours should be applied in the middle of the lid and dark colours on and just above the socket line. Blend the darker shade up and out.
For Down Turned Eyes
Use eye-shadow up and out. Apply eye-liner close to the upper lash line and then blend in the shadow along the socket line in the outer two-third of the eyes. In order to lift the eyes, apply dense mascara.
For Close Set Eyes
Using an eye-liner draw a very thin line along the upper eyelashes so that it becomes thicker near the outer corner of eyes. Apply a very thin layer of light eye-shadows from the inner corner of your eyes to the middle of your eyelid. Then apply eye-shadows of darker tints starting from the middle of your eyelid to the outer corner. Blend the colours in the middle of the eyelids. Use more mascara on the outer corners.
For Wide Set Eyes
Apply a darker tint of eye-shadows from the outer corner of your eye to the middle of the eyelid and then move a bit forward gently to reduce the range between your eyes.
For Those Who Wear Spectacles
If the frame of your spectacles is bright, it is not necessary to add colour with eye-shadows. It is better to pay attention to your eyelashes and put emphasis on them. If you usually prefer brown mascara, try a black one. To give your eyelashes more volume and make them fluffy, use a dense mascara and apply it from the roots to the tips.
It is important that your eyebrows and eyes determine your face, but not the spectacles.
