Eye makeup tips with Chikii beauty advisor using natural mineral makeup.

At Chikii we have a special with our colours until stocks last. Below is some tips on how to apply eye-shadow. Enjoy!

Tip 1: If you want your eye shadow to stay in place all day or night; you must use an eye shadow base or primer. Apply the primer after your daily moisturiser and foundation. You are then ready to sweep eye shadow onto your lid.

Tip 2: One of the most important beauty tips is to consider your eye colour when choosing your eye makeup and eye shadows. The correct colour can make your eyes absolutely pop. If you have brown eyes, consider wearing a deep blue eye shadow. Or for blue eyes, go for golds or bronze. You can also match the colour of your eyes with your eye shadows – so blue eye shadow on blue eyes.

Tip 3: Only apply light colours to your brow bone-Dark colour on your brow bone can make you look like you have droopy eyelids. Stick to no shadow on the brow bone or if you would really like to wear shadow on your brow bone, go for a light or neutral colour. In fact, a highlighter ( illuminater) , if applied correctly can really open up your eye.

Tip 4: Always use highlighter-Use a highlighter or an eye shadow in a light colour to highlight the features on your eye. To really open up your eye; apply a light dab of highlighter on the inner corner of your eye (next to your nose). You can also apply a light amount on your brow bone, just under your eye brow. This will help make your eyes look bright and alert.

Tip 5: Be careful when contouring. When applying dark eye shadow to the crease of your eye, it is important that you blend from the inner crease outwards. If you blend towards the eye, it can make your eyes look small and dark.

Tip 6: When applying your eye makeup, always use three colours. Firstly, you need a base colour, which is usually quite light. Secondly, you need a contouring colour for the crease of your eye and finally, you need a main colour for the lid. You should start with the lightest colour first (the base) and work your way to the darkest colour (the contouring colour). So, for the perfect eye makeup, you should apply the base all over the lid (up to the brow bone), apply the medium colour to your lid and then apply the contouring colour along the crease of your eye lid and in the outer corner of your eyes.

Tip 7: Smokey Eyes-For the perfect Smokey eye, make sure you keep the colour to the eyelid. Don’t put any dark eye shadow above the crease of your eye. This can make you look like you’ve been punched in the eye.

Tip 8: Shimmer-Be very careful when using shimmery eye shadow. If you are young, shimmer can look fantastic on your eyelids. However, shimmer can emphasize lines and wrinkles. So if you have any lines or wrinkles on your eyelids, it’s best to steer clear of shimmer.

Tip 9: Mix and Match-Try mixing shades that you wouldn’t normally wear together – experiment. It’s a good idea to go into our store and play with our samples before committing to buying any eye shadows. Mixing a lighter colour with a colour that you think is too bold is also a great trick.

Tip 10: Wearing red lips-It is particularly important to get your eye shadow correct when wearing red lipstick. Remember that you should only focus on one feature on your face – the lips or the eyes. So, if you intend to wear dramatic red lipstick, keep your eye shadow light and neutral.
