Great Eye Makeup
I have seen so many eye makeup tips, tricks, eye shadow and mascara reviews here on Indian makeup blog. Rati asks my opinion many a time on her application of eye makeup, eye shadow etc. and I am nearly always tongue-tied. Not that I do not like her eye makeup but that I am really at loss to comment on technicalities. But then I realized that I do not have to bother about technicalities anyway. All I have to see is whether it’s looking good or not, whether the eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner etc. are making her look attractive or not. And then I realized that there are a few things on how guys evaluate makeup. Those things hold true for eye makeup also. There are two things I have seen about what I like about application of eye makeup, both of them are contrary to each other
Too much of a good thing is bad:
If your cheeks are looking pink and we realize that it’s because of blush, then our opinion turns instantly negative. Makeup should not be noticeable, or rather, it should make you look good without us guys realizing that you have been made up. So be sparing with that eye shadow. Sometimes lots of color around the eye just turns one off. Instead a simple kajal would have worked wonders. Make it subtle.
Make it loud:
This advice goes against the previous one. If you want to attract attention sometimes sassy, pert makeup works wonders; dark red lips, skimpy clothes and all.. Madonna comes to my mind. You cannot do it often but sometimes a clean colored eye makeup or a smoky eye would do. So if you cannot make it subtle, make it loud! 🙂
So anyhow, I do not have much to speak about eye makeup. But since the time we started IMBB whenever I see a good eye makeup pic I save it on my computer. Today I saw that I have many pics that I could share. I do not have much knowledge about good bad these eye makeups are, how to apply these eye makeup, what are the tricks, etc. but honestly, from a guy’s perspective, they are just fabulous. So maybe your views will not match with mine on these but I can assure you that all guys will agree with me on this. Please also notice the interplay of eye makeups and lipsticks. I have a feeling both are connected to each other in some way and makeup artists might be knowing a few rules about which lipstick goes with what kind of eye makeup. It’s just my theory, and I might be wrong.
Also, if any of you realize the tricks that have been used in these eye makeups, please do comment and let us know:
Frankly, I have never liked Aishwarya Rai but this eye makeup pic is the best I have seen so far on the internet. The makeup is not evident at all. Nobody would notice any eye makeup. But everyone would notice the eyes!
A Brown eye makeup. Honestly speaking, I did not notice the brown until I read that it was brown eye makeup. I just loved the look.
No idea what it is, but loved it. Notice the lipstick again.I think the actress is Jennifer Lopez but not sure.
This should classify as an overall good makeup pic but I noticed the eyes the most the instant I saw the pic so saved it on an impulse.
