Types of Eye Makeup
Eye shadow accentuates the contours of your eyelids and brings out the beautiful hue of your eyes and face. To achieve your lovely look, follow these tips: Start by applying a light color all over your top lid. Add a darker color in the crease in a complementary shade. Then, you can add a third color to the outer corners of your eyes if you wish. You can also sweep a light-colored hue along the lash line under your eyes using one of many makeup brush options offered by Walgreens. When you're selecting eye shadow colors, pick shades that complement your skin tone, using warm colors like earth tones and peach to match warm undertones and cool colors like pinks, blues and purples. Try to pick colors that aren't a match for your eye color, avoiding blues for blues eyes, greens for green eyes and browns for brown eyes. This will help to create a beautiful contrast to make your eye color deeper and more noticeable.
In addition to choosing the right colors of eye shadow, you also need to ensure that you purchase the right type for your needs. The most common form of eye shadow is the pressed compact, which can contain one, two or several shades, like those offered by trusted brands such as CoverGirl and Maybelline This form of eyeshadow is easy to apply, but is slightly translucent, making it not as bright as other varieties. Walgreens also offers a vast assortment of powdered eye shadows. This type should be applied with an eye shadow brush. They can be messier to apply, but often contains stronger pigments than pressed formulas. Liquid and cream eye shadows provide the darkest color and can remain in place longer than powdered varieties. The right Walgreens Eye Makeup products can help you easily achieve special, bolder looks like the smoky eye.
By using the left navigation menu, you can browse an array of Walgreens eyeliner options to help complete your makeup look. Eyeliner is used to trace along the lash line and helps to make the shape of your eyes more bold and defined. You can use eyeliner all along the top and bottom lids or experiment by going just partway along the eyes to create different looks.
