Eye makeup application can be intimidating, but with a little knowledge and few simple techniques, you can create captivating, beautiful eyes! Use these tips to beautify your eyes:
1. GREAT EYEBROWS
Brows frame your eyes, so be sure they are well groomed. Most redheads have very light, blondish eyebrows, so it is best to visit a licensed aesthetician to have your brows properly shaped to fit your face. Fill in any gaps with a brow pencil; always use a shade that is slightly lighter than your hair color. Brows that are too dark can overwhelm the eyes and look unnatural.

To open up your eyes and give you a fresh appearance, use concealer to mute any dark circles or discoloration. Start with a moisturizer to prep the delicate area under your eyes; not only will this plump up the skin but it will give the concealer a dewey, youthful texture.

3. GOOD BASE
After you’ve applied concealer around the eye, use an eyeshadow primer on your lids. Primers will hold your shadow in place and eliminate creases.
Eyeshadow illuminates and defines eyes; well chosen shades can enhance and intensify your eye color. It’s most flattering to choose shadow colors that contrast with your eye color and really make them pop. Matching your shadow to your eye color can create a flat, boring look– and no redhead wants that.
