looking to impress others with your stunning eyes at a social outing, giving
yourself glamour eyes is an excellent way to do so. Sadly, many people
don’t have the slightest idea as to how to give themselves a glamour eye
look (or do it properly). Thankfully, we’re going to give you some of
the tips you’ll need to turn heads at your next social outing.
- Color Selection – Feel free to use any color for the glamour
eye effect, but it’s important to have three shades of the same hue to
pull it off. For example: A classic smoky eye look can be created with
gray or black, but brown and bronze can be used as well. Using a dark
smoky color, a medium base color, and a light creamy color is essential
for the look, so try to avoid using colors that are too bright.
Glamour eyes are meant to accentuate; They are not intended to distract.
- Supplies – What you’ll need to achieve the look are:
loose powders for blending and pitch black eyeliner for accentuation.
You can also use liquid eyeliner, cream, a pencil, cream shadows, or
pressed powders. As for applicators, you’ll need some good quality brushes
including a soft brush for blending and firmer brush for creating darker
lines. You will also need eye shadow primer and concealer as a
base (before you start working on your glamour eyes). If you happen
to make mistakes, keep q-tips or makeup remover on hand to make
- Apply base makeup first. In order to
achieve the glamour eye look, a neutral palette should be applied
beforehand. Dark or red spots can be hidden with concealer, then put
on a powder foundation and let it set in.
- If you want add dimension, place light
shadow in the corner of the eye and/or use highlighter along your brow
bone. It’s important to apply both dimension patterns lightly.
- Make sure that the eyebrows have been
well-colored and shaped, as this will bring more attention to your eyes.
If your brows are too light or too thin, the effect will look too
unnatural or dark.
