1. Day Makeup
You don’t need exert much effort on makeup everyday as your plan may just be casual meeting with friends or a quick trip to the store, in which case, you can just dab on some lipstick so you won’t look so pale.
There are times however when certain occasions do call for a little dress up like a date at the mall or movies. You want to look cute and pretty but definitely not overdone. The key here is to keep your makeup light and simple.
Try applying some eyeliner and one coat of mascara. For eyeshadow, go for pastel colors. If it’s summer time, donning a peach or bronze shimmer would look nice during the day. To keep a fresh look, apply some white shadow at the corner of your eyes.
2. Office Makeup
For corporate settings, you would need to apply a little more makeup compared to day makeup but you have to maintain a professional look. Refrain from applying bold colors as the fluorescent lighting of your office would make them look harsher.
Employ a soft liner with one to two coatings of mascara. For shadow, stick to one with a warm tone so as to counteract the harsh lighting of the florescent. If you’re up working all night and have dark circles under your eyes, use a light pencil concealer to make them disappear.
3. Date Night Makeup
Make your eyes sparkle! A brighter eyeshadow would show a flirty, playful side of you but if you’re going for a more sensual and sultry effect, go for darker shades. Either way though, just make sure that the color sweeps up and out to create a smoky effect.
Brown shadows are generally good because they give just the right definition of the eyes without looking overdone. Apply a dark eyeliner on your upper lash line and of course, mascara for emphasis on your long lashes.
4. Night Out with Your Girls
This is the most fun look because you have the freedom to experiment with more colors so you can go for bright shadows, neon liners and all that glitter. You can play around with your mascara too, applying more than one coat of either brown or black at first then adding some color by brushing some bright colors of either purple, pink, blue or green at the tips of your lashes.
5. Formal Makeup
When it comes to events like these, you’re usually dressed to impress; hence, your eye makeup must also exude elegance and sophistication. The trick on achieving this is putting emphasis on just one specific area of your face. Go for your eyes as this is what draws a person’s attention to your face in the first place.
Ensure that your eyebrows are shaped properly and comb your lashes meticulously. Glitters are not recommended. Go for more neutral tones that complements your skin tone best s the rule to live by when it comes to formal events is “less is more.”
