If you are a makeup junkie, you ought to know that 50% of your overall look is determined by your perfect "eye makeup". A single mistake can make your appearance look messed up. But not anymore!

Since a perfect eye makeup is one thing you can’t master completely, we have broken it down into 7 simple steps, which will strengthen your eye makeup game and make your overall look pop up!

Let’s begin, right away:

1. Prep those lids

Just as necessary it is to prep your face before you apply blush or contour, it is also important to prep your eyelid before you apply any eyeshade over it.

Why?

Because the base coat or primer will keep the eye shade from bleeding. It will save you all day long and make the color of the eyeshade pop up even better.

Also, do make sure to invest into a proper eye primer and not use a normal face foundation on your lid instead, because it will affect thefinishing.

Check the massive difference a mere primer can make.

Left eye lid is primed, right eye lid doe not.

2. Choose eye shadow colors wisely

The worst you could do with your eye makeup is choose two conflicting shades. Remember that color wheel we are taught in high school in art class? Well, put that to use here. Make sure to always choose colors that complement each other rather than fight for attention.

Here’s a complementing eye shadow color wheel.

Never be afraid to play with colors, but whenever you do, make sure to not go overboard!

3. Get rid of the sponge-tipped brushes

If you are looking to perfect your eye makeup game, the first thing you need to do is to get rid of those brushes with spongy ends. Instead, invest in some quality blending brushes, with soft bristles. There are all sorts of brushes available in the market, but finding one that suits you best is hard to find.

But with this guide, you can find the perfect set of brushes and flaunt the flawless eye makeup without any hassle.

And No! you don’t need to invest into an over-priced kit of 50 brushes but just a couple of them (a crease brush and one normal brush for applying eye shadow over the lids) can serve the purpose, amazingly well.

4. Blend, Blend and Blend

I cannot emphasize more on the fact that blending is probably the most useful key when looking to get a gorgeous eye makeover.

Once you have chosen the right color of shadow and the right brushes, it’s time for you to begin blending. Swiping a thick layer of eyeshadow is not enough to give your eyes a beautiful definition!

Make sure to not rub, but with light and gentle strokes, blend the eye shadow!

See what effect blending gives to your eyes!

If your love for makeup has been newly found, then I’m sure you have been ignoring those lower lashes.

Ever noticed how gorgeous the makeup looks on all these famous makeup gurus on Youtube ? Well, there is one solid secret to it. They go an extra mile to coat those lower lashes as well, with a generous coat of mascara.

Now this can be tricky, well messy actually, but practice makes it perfect!

Here are a few tips to apply the perfect mascara, every time!

See for yourself, how just a single coat can make your eyes look more defined!

5. Stay away from the brow bone

Yes, that is a warning to all those who think painting your brows with a dark eye shade up to the brow bone makes you look gorgeous. No! it makes you look like a panda!

Eye shades are meant to be applied only over the lid of your eye and not anywhere near the brow bone. Because if you apply the eyeshade over the brow bone as well, it diminishes the depth and dimension. Instead, apply highlighter over the brow bone, which will enhance the shape of your eye as well as the face structure.

That’s a definite no-no!

5. Give those lower lashes some much-needed attention

If your love for makeup has been newly found, then I’m sure you have been ignoring those lower lashes.

6. Last but definitely not the least, watch out for that fallout

This step is by far the most neglected one, for sure. Keep in mind, if perfection is what you are looking for, then neatness is the first thing you should be going after.

With applying eye shadow comes the dreaded fallout, which lands right on top of the cheekbones and finds it way under those eye bags. This fallout can make your makeup, look messy and make them feel tired and drowsy.

 Wiping off the fallout is one way, but that doesn’t give a finished look. Instead, cover the under eye area with masking tape or scotch tape and then begin with makeup. This trick has by far been the best and keeps face free from excess eye shadow.
