To Ace Your Daily Eye Makeup, Follow These Eight Tips


Eye makeup-Even if you love makeup, you would agree that colleges and offices are not the places where you can flaunt that glitter eye makeup you learned last night from a YouTube channel. For all those college students and working woman who want to experiment with their eye makeup without it being too bold and OTT, follow these mantras, and you are good to go.

Eye makeup

There are two fashion essentials that every girl swears by intense black kohl and a kickass black eyeliner. Your best bets are the ones that are long-wearing and smudge-proof to last for the whole day without streaking your makeup. L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique Bold & Maybelline New York Colossal Super Black Kajal are great buys for that intense, kohl-ridden eyes. Maybelline New York The Colossal Liner, Maybelline New York Hypersharp Power Black Liner and Lakme Eye Artist Pen will help you ace that winged eye.

  • Experiment With White & Beige Liners

One swipe of a white or a beige liner on your lash line gives you a more awakened and brightened look without piling on too much makeup. Go for Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Infinite Beige & Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil Soft White.

  • Turn To Dark Colours Other Than Black

If you want to experiment without going too bold, coloured eyeliners in dark shades are a great way to go. Colours like charcoal, cocoa and navy blue are dramatic without drawing too much attention, perfect for college lectures and board meetings alike. Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil in Absolute Pine & Electra and L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in the shades Charcoal and Plum are my top picks.

  • Make Nude Palettes your BFF

Nude eyeshadow palettes are very resourceful if you want to recreate looks that are classy and yet subtle. They act as the perfect complements for the boldest colours in your kitty. So, investing in an excellent nude eyeshadow palette is a no-brainer. My top recommendations are Maybelline New York The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, Maybelline New York The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, theBalm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette and L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude.

  • Add Colours To Your Lash Line

If you do want to add colours to your eye makeup, experimenting with lash lines in bold colours is a safe way to go. This way, you subtly add colours without going too OTT. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in True Teal, Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil in Emerald Charm and Maybelline New York The Colossal Kohl turquoise are some great options to choose from.

  • Say No to Shimmers

Colleges and offices generally disapprove of too many shimmers and glitter as they are considered distracting. Fret not. Make mattes your best friends and don them for an elegant look.

  • Go For Neutral Eye Shadows

Colleges and workplaces are not appropriate places to rock your tangerine eyeshadow. Neutrals like rose, browns, beiges, and greys, can be used creatively to get fantastic eye looks that do not warrant unnecessary attention.

  • Black To Tone It All Down

If you really cannot help yourself from wearing that tangerine eyeshadow, use a black liner or a black eyeshadow to get smokey eyes. This way, you get to wear it without the disapproving frowns of your professors and colleagues.

If you keep the above tips in mind while doing your eye makeup, you won’t need anything else other than a pair of eyebrows on fleek and a bit of mascara to rock it.
