They say eyes are the windows to the soul. I know, this analogy is very old, but if it is true, wouldn’t you rather have sparkly windows that have personality rather than dull, blank windows? I would, and I assume most of you would as well. Today I’m going to be showing you some ways to make your eyes stand out with some easy makeup tricks!
Midas Touch – Think full-on gold shadow is a little intimidating? You don’t need a lid covered in gold to sparkle- blend some of the metallic shadow into the inner third of your lower lashline to give your eyes some effortless character.

Colorful Liner – This season is all about saturated color on the eyelids. Since that’s a bit bright for everyday, I prefer to draw a thin line of a colored liner on top of a cat eye to give subtle drama. Try liners in dark greens, blues, and plums.

Layer your Mascara – These days there are so many mascaras to choose from that it’s a bit overwhelming. Since mascara has a very short shelf life (only 6 months!), I prefer to buy it from the drugstore from trusted brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline – two for the price of one high-end tube! Look for one that promises length, and another that supplies volume. Layering these two separates your lashes and makes your eyes even more noticeable!

Find the Perfect Base – Everyone wants lids that look radiant without being flashy. To achieve this look, start with a shimmery eye shadow primer that will instantly give your eyes a natural glow.

Keep the Face Neutral – If you are going for dramatic eyes, stick to neutral colors on the lips and cheeks. Going for a natural blush and a nude lip will have everyone focusing on your amazing eyes!

However you add drama to your eyes, make sure to have fun with it and keep experimenting with different looks to find the one that works for you!
