How to create an effect of “open look” by means of a make-up
I will provide you with a fast and easy make-up alternative which will ensure that your eyes are awake. It is always good to have time to take care of yourself. After all, sitting in front of a make-up mirror is relaxing. The advantage of using this make-up technique is that it doesn’t require you to wake up early in order to complete it. Moreover, the make-up style is 100% organic and only functions in enhancing your natural beauty.
- Eye shadows – Choose a dark shade if you have a dark skin tone and a light shade if you have a light skin tone.
- You’ll also require dark and light cosmetic pencil.
This is a before image, i.e. an eye without make-up.
Foremost, you need to wash your face. Cold water is preferred over hot water because it tones up the skin in addition to eliminating redness and inflammations. I use a day cream in the morning with light tinting transparent base.
Next, apply light eye shadows. Natural shades are the best for this purpose.
You should have results similar to the one shown in the picture.
To avoid making your eyes appear flat, apply some dark hues of dark shadows.
Light shadows should be applied on the upper part of the eye lid along the edges. Thereafter, you can add a light film of dark shadow to give your eyes contours it did not have initially.
The corners of my eyes are slightly low, so it is important to raise them by simply drawing arrow on the upper eyelids slightly turn it up. Ensure that your eyelids are tight as the you are drawing on the eyelids.
This is a one more tip which will help you make eyes more open look. By making use of the white eye pencil, draw on the inner part of the eyelid. Make the drawing along the lash line. You can make use of a silver pencil instead of a white pencil if you would like to obtain a glittering look.
Draw an arrow a little wider to the outside corner of the eye just when to the inner corner it is barely noticeable. I deliberately don’t do a pretentious lines to avoid an aggressive style in makeup.
The last application should be the mascara. While you can do with just one layer of mascara, it is still possible to add a couple of layers. If you would like to apply a second layer, ensure that the first one is dry.
The end result is an eye that is not sleepy.
At this photo you can see the huge difference in the before and after make-up.
- It is always a good idea to merge light and dark shadows. By doing so, you will be able to get a better result.
