It has been said that eyes are the window to the soul and play a crucial role in how we display our emotions. Stunning eyes can be your best feature, but defining them or making them stand out can take some work.
From makeup and colours to clothes and even jewellery, the beauty industry has given us a range of products and techniques to help us define our eyes.
In this post, we will discuss some of the ways you can accentuate your eyes and boost your natural beauty
We have come a long way since the days of heavy and cakey makeup. These days, a light touch of makeup can really make a difference. Whether it is for a night out, for work or simply everyday work, these are a number of low-effort tricks that can enhance your facial features and make your eyes pop.
Identifying your eye shape and employing makeup techniques that complement this shape is a great place to start. For example, if you have round eyes, using a neutral colour palette to define the lash line will elongate and define the eye or to accentuate a downturned eye shape, curling the outer lashes will bring symmetry and definition.
Much like any piece of art, utilising complementary colours are a great way to make your eyes pop. A touch of bold lipstick or a swipe of a striking eyeliner are surefire ways to bring attention to your eyes and make them the star of the show.
For example, blue eyes can be enhanced with the use of brown and bronze eyeshadows where brown tones are accentuated with blue and green shades. Similarly, hair colour and skin can play a role in defining your eyes as well as their shade.
Eyeliner is a great way to frame your eyes and enhance their natural shape. However, there are a number of factors to consider when deciding on the best shape and style. These include how deeply your eyes are set, how you lids are positioned, the width of your eyes and their overall shape.
For example, downturned eyes look lifted with a thin cat-eye liner that flicks up at the end, where wide-set eyes are maximized by applying thicker liner closer to the inner corners of the eye. For those wishing to bring more symmetry to their asymmetrical facial features, thicker eyeliner on one eye and thinner on the other can go a long way to bringing symmetry and definition.
For longer-lasting results, a cosmetic eyeliner tattoo can be a great option to consider. Not only do Cosmetic eyeliner tattoos cut down on the time it takes to get ready, but they are an effective way to enhance define and change the shape of your eyes. From thick and bold to fine, thin and natural, Signature Brows & Beauty work with you to create the perfect tattoo.
Applying mascara is a quick and easy way to add instant definition to your eyes. Simply curling your lashes before applying a couple coats can brighten and lift your eyes.
If you really want to make your lashes stand out, use two mascara formulas – one for thickening and one for lengthening. By jiggling the mascara brush you are able to build fullness from the root and add length towards the tips.
While there are a number of ways makeup can be used to define your eyes, there are as many ways to do so, without makeup too! These include:
Much like how colours play into eyeshadows and makeup, using complementary colours in your clothes will work just as well! This doesn’t have to apply all the time, but wearing a piece of clothing that accentuates your eyes can be eye-catching, especially if you are in need of a boost of confidence.
For example, if you have blue eyes, orange pieces of clothing can be used to draw attention to the eyes. Where brown and green eyes appear more intense with yellows and purples.
A great face-framing haircut is a great way to create an eye-popping look. With plenty of options that will flatter any face shape, this can change up your look in an instant or simply enhance it even more.
One of the best ways to make your eyes stand out involves wearing bangs or fringes, as they draw attention down to your eyes. Although bangs will draw attention to your eyes, keep your face shape in mind when choosing your hairstyle to further accentuate your beauty and facial features.
A great way to define your eyes is through a number of simple beauty treatments. The best part about these? They are low maintenance so you don’t have to worry about applying makeup every day!
A lash lift can instantly lift your eyes without any makeup! Considered a perm for your lashes this is a relatively low-maintenance process performed by professionals to help enhances your natural lashes. By curling your lashes upwards from the root, not only does this create a gorgeous lash, but it also helps to lift and brighten the eye.
If you are looking for a less permanent alternative, lash tinting is an effective way to define your eyes. It creates the illusion of wearing mascara without the hassle of everyday application.
This treatment results in bolder and darker lashes that look stunning. It is important to remember that tinting does not lift or curl, but rather darkens and colours the lashes by using high-quality, safe dyes.
Shape and frame your face with well-groomed eyebrows. A great eyebrow shape can go a long way in achieving a polished and put-together look.
For those with sparse eyebrows, fill them in using an eyebrow pencil, powder or gel to give the appearance of fuller and bushy eyebrows.
For those who do not have the time or skill to cultivate the perfect arch every day, professional beauty treatments such as lamination, waxing, tinting and microblading can help you achieve the perfect eyebrow look.
