Smoky Eye Tutorial for Blue Eyes

So, you’re hitting the clubs this weekend? And you want to dazzle everybody who’s present. Well, with a great smoky eye and the lovely shade of blue in your eyes, it dazzling will be a piece of cake. Here are 5 tips how to raise smoke when you enter a room just by doing a great smoky eye.

1st Tip

What most girls are wrong about when they have blue eyes is the colour of the shade they should use. The contrast to blue is not black – it’s actually brown. Black mascara and black eye shadow will only make you look trampy or, best case scenario, like an emo kid. And no one likes emo kids.

You will need eye shadow and a kohl pencil or, for the drama effect, an eye liner. Of course, mascara is a must.

2nd Tip

Hide the traces of sleepless nights. Use concealer to hide your under eye bags. Of course, you need to do your eyebrows. If they are to thin, apply some eye brow pencil. The better your eyebrows look, the better the final outcome of your make-up routine. Eyebrow have a huge influence on how you look.

3rd Tip

Draw the contour of your eyes with your kohl pencil. Just draw around the outer angles for the right effect, because if you draw the entire eye it will only make your eyes look smaller. And no one wants that. If you’re going for liquid eyeliner, make sure your hands are still and not shaky. The rest is the same as for the kohl pencil.

4th Tip

Light blue and silver eye shadows

Apply some eye shadow around the corners of your eyes – there’s no need to use a brush. You can just smudge it on with your fingers. Fingers really are the best make up tool ever made! Put the eye shadow over the eye pencil.

5th Tip

Of course, all this would be useless without mascara. Apply a good, thick layer of mascara right after doing all of the above.

Honey, you are now set to go out! Now, when you go out and see all those suitors – don’t rub your eyes, Cinderella!!! It’s all for real and it’s not because of your smoky eyes or your amazing lips.

Sure, the eyes and the make-up may have helped – they always do help a ‘bit. But it’s all how they help – they give you the confidence to shine your true inner beauty that you have. Everybody can do a smoky eye – it’s easy.

But it’s the ability to see the world and its best view, with or without the smoke, that will make you the greatest beauty of them all, the belle of this ball we call life.


7 Essential Tips on How to Apply False Eyelashes Easily

Long eyelashes can make your eyes appear bigger and wider, and make you look more glamorous, sexy and inviting. Unfortunately, not all of us have been blessed to have such luscious and gorgeous lashes.

Fortunately, there are many different types of false eyelashes that can solve all of your beauty problems. With just a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to brighten up your eyes in less than 3 minutes!

Here is a short guide on how to apply false eyelashes easily, quickly and successfully.

False Eyelashes Options

You can either choose a full set of false lashes or opt for small clusters of individual lashes.

For a more natural look apply individual lashes, as they are perfect for filling out your own sparse ones. If instead you want to achieve thicker and fuller looking eyelashes, opt for the full set of lashes.

Tips and Tricks on Applying False Eyelashes Easily

1. Make sure that your eyelids and lashes are perfectly clean, and if necessary pour a small amount of astringent, or toner, onto a cotton pad, and gently wipe over your eye area to remove excess oil.

2. Apply makeup on your eyes as you normally would. A thicker eyeliner line will cover the gap between the false lashes and your natural lash line, and ensure that the skin doesn’t show. Now, curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara. This will help your natural lashes to blend better with the false ones.

3. Use your tweezers to gently remove your false lashes from the box. Place them on your lids to check whether they are too wide or too long for the shape of your eyes.

If they are too long, trim them, making sure to leave them longer towards the outer corners of your eyes. Never cut them straight across, but try trimming each individual lash at a different length to give them a more natural appearance.

If they are too wide, just snip off a few hairs at one end, or cut a tiny section of the outer edge with a pair of small scissors. Test again and trim more if necessary, until they perfectly fit your eye shape and size.

4. Using a toothpick or a fine makeup brush, or any other similar tool of your choice, apply the glue along the base of your false lashes. Don’t squeeze it directly from the tube, because too much product will come out. Add a little more glue to the edges of the lashes, as the glue tends to wear off more easily at the corners.

Wait for about 30 seconds before applying false lashes to your lids, or until the glue becomes tacky.

5. Use your fingers to apply the lashes on your eyelid as close as possible to the base of your natural lashes. Press down firmly, especially on the outer corners of the strip. Using a sponge eye shadow applicator, go across the band and press lashes in place to ensure good adhesion.

Wait for 30 seconds to 2 minutes until the glue dries completely.

6. Apply another thin coat of mascara, or use an eyelash or eyebrow brush to blend your eyelashes into the false ones.

Insertion of false eyelashes

If there are any gaps between your natural lash line and false lashes, cover them up, by using a dark liquid or pencil eyeliner.

7. If applying individual lashes, squeeze a small amount of glue onto foil or any hard surface, and use tweezers to dip the tip of each eyelash into the adhesive. Let the glue to dry for a minute or until it becomes tacky.

Use tweezers again to insert individual lashes between your natural lashes as close to the roots as possible, making sure to space them evenly and naturally across the lash line.

Hold the glued lash in place for a few seconds to allow it to adhere well. Let it to dry for a couple of minutes, and then curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply a few coats of mascara. This will make falsies to blend well with your natural lashes.

Now you are ready to go out and infatuate everyone you want with your fabulous eyes! Let us know in the comments below!

Get Smooth Legs After Shaving in 5 Easy Steps

Many girls experience this same problem – after you shave your legs, your skin gets all dry, itchy and not very pretty. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be that way. Your legs could be perfectly smooth, and beautiful, after shaving. Find out how.

There is no big secret to this issue, really. You simply have to follow these 5 easy steps and everything will be just fine.

1. Start with Peeling

The whole process should start with you giving your legs a good peeling treatment before you shave them. You can do this with a special scrub shower gel.

This should be done for two reasons. First, the peeling will remove all the dead skin from your legs, which will make them smoother. Second, it will release most of the ingrown hair.

2. Use Special Shave Creams

Legs Shaving Cream

Most of us shave our legs with the same shower gel we shower with. Although there’s nothing wrong with this practice, if you’re looking for really smooth legs, it’s better to buy special moisturizing shave creams.

I’ve tried a lot of these and I personally find Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel Sensitive Skin with Aloe Vera to be the best one. It might not be your cup of tea, but if you haven’t tried it yet – give it a try. It really makes your skin smooth.

3. Invest in a Good Razor

Female razor and soap

It’s not like razors are super expensive, but really, don’t buy the cheapest ones. Those that cost a few bucks more are those that give you smooth legs after shaving.

I would always choose a razor with cartridges. To be completely honest with you, I don’t have a scientific proof that those razors are really that better, than the disposable ones. However, I do have years of experience that say that those razors are sharper, they last longer and they shave better.

4. Don’t Rush

Yes of course, you sometimes really need to shave your legs in a hurry, but try not to make this a general practice. Instead, take your time and shave your legs slowly.

I always start with a hot shower. Hot water actually makes your hairs softer, so they are easier to shave. Apply moisturizing shaving cream, and shave your legs carefully, paying special attention to your ankles and knees.

These regions are the easiest to nick, and no one wants red scars after every shaving. Don’t press the razor against your skin – the only result you can get is nicking.

5. Moisturizing in the End

In order to get a perfect shave and have beautiful smooth legs, your shaving has to end with applying moisturizer. No excuses about this one – you are doing some damage to your skin when you’re shaving, and that damage needs to be repaired.

You can choose to buy special after shaving moisturizers, but I personally haven’t noticed any big difference between them, and the lotion I usually use. Of course, if they work better for you, you can safely use them. I’ve been using Garnier lotions for years now, and I’m quite satisfied with them – especially the one with Shea butter. It is great for dry itchy skin, and it gives me smooth skin too.

That’s it – it’s all you have to do in order to get smooth legs after shaving. However, if you happen to have an extra advice to share, feel free to do so. I’d like to hear what your solutions are.

6 Best Shaving Tips for Women

Women all over the world remove body hair, usually for cosmetic reasons. Many decided to stick to the least expensive method – shaving. Still, shaving comes with certain drawbacks – learn how to avoid them and make the most out of it!


Despite so may different hair removal methods – waxing, depilatory creams and even laser hair removal – many women remain faithful to the quickest and the least expensive method – shaving. Read through these shaving tips and learn how to avoid all the drawbacks shaving might have.

1. Soften Your Skin

Softening your skin before shaving is a must. You don’t want to dry razor dead skin, so make sure your skin is soft enough before shaving. Run yourself a warm bath and soak in it for a while. Once you feel your skin is soft and smooth, feel free to start shaving.

2. Exfoliate

It’s always better to get rid of the dead skin cells by exfoliating than to let them clog up your razor while shaving. Use an exfoliating glove and/or a body scrub and a cloth to exfoliate before shaving.

3. Use a Shaving Cream or Gel

Even though there are so many scented shaving creams for women, the truth is that there isn’t a huge difference between these and those for men. Men shaving creams are amazing moisturizers, so use one of those if you have particularly dry skin. Avoid using aftershaves, for they can irritate your skin and cause a nasty rash. Use products with aloe vera or a lubricating shaving gel for the most sensitive regions.

4. Find a Good Razor

It’s going to be a while before you find the perfect razor. If you have sensitive skin, it would be a good idea to use a razor that has lubricated strips. Talk to your friends and ask them to recommend a few. If you’re still not sure which one to try out – the Gillette Venus might work.

5. Change Razors

There’s no better way to get a nick than by using a dull blade. Change your blades on a regular basis and never borrow another person’s razor.

6. Moisturize

Shaving will dry out your skin, so it’s important to rehydrate it after shaving. Use a moisturizer or oil to moisturize. If you feel like certain parts are too dry, apply some extra baby oil to those areas.

WCW Of The Month – February

My WCW of the month February is Oprah Winfrey. She inspires me alot, I think she every dark girl’s role model.

Anyway, here is a little biography about Oprah.

Oprah’s Beginnings

American television host, actress, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur Oprah Gail Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954, in Kosciusko, Mississippi. After a troubled adolescence in a small farming community, where she was sexually abused by a number of male relatives and friends of her mother, Vernita, she moved to Nashville to live with her father, Vernon, a barber and businessman. She entered Tennessee State University in 1971 and began working in radio and television broadcasting in Nashville.

Winfrey launched the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1986 as a nationally syndicated program. With its placement on 120 channels and an audience of 10 million people, the show grossed $125 million by the end of its first year, of which Winfrey received $30 million. She soon gained ownership of the program from ABC, drawing it under the control of her new production company, Harpo Productions (‘Oprah’ spelled backwards) and making more and more money from syndication.

Activism and Charity

According to Forbes magazine, Oprah was the richest African American of the 20th century and the world’s only Black billionaire for three years running. Lifemagazine hailed her as the most influential woman of her generation. In 2005, Business Week named her the greatest Black philanthropist in American history. Oprah’s Angel Network has raised more than $51,000,000 for charitable programs, including girls’ education in South Africa and relief to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

MCM Of The Month – February

My MCM of the month February is Nelson Mandela. Even though he is no longer with, he will always be one of my favourite African’s presidents. 

Here is a little biography about Nelson Mandela.

Early Life

Nelson Mandela was born Rolihlahla Mandela on July 18, 1918, in the tiny village of Mvezo, on the banks of the Mbashe River in Transkei, South Africa. “Rolihlahla” in the Xhosa language literally means “pulling the branch of a tree,” but more commonly translates as “troublemaker.”

Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country’s apartheid system. In 1994, Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa’s first black president. In 2009, Mandela’s birthday (July 18) was declared “Mandela Day” to promote global peace and celebrate the South African leader’s legacy. Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg on December 5, 2013, at age 95.

10 Fabulous Hairstyles for Curly Haired Women

Your curly hair is a blessing, not a curse, so discover the secrets to style it in the most stylish way and make all your friends jealous of your fabulous curls!


If you have been blessed with fabulous curly hair, then you are one of the lucky women who are able to rock the best hairstyles ever. Many women don’t embrace their curly hair and they always try to straighten them and wax them and consequently totally ruin them.

You have to stop thinking that your hair is your curse, and see it as your blessing and probably one of your best assets!

It is true, sometimes curly hair can be really rebellious and there are days that your instinct tells you to get a pair of scissors and just cut it off, but the secret lies in learning how to style it in the correct way. Women with curly hair can definitely sport any style they want, from buns to ponytails, updos to loose hair.

Of course also the cut you give can have a great influence, even on the shape of your curls. So choosing the right hair cut is as fundamental as trying to style it!

Here is a selection of the 10 best hairstyles, worn by both celebrities and common women, that will show you and teach you that you are very lucky to have natural curls and that will make all your friends jealous of you!

1. Curly updo


The easiest way to do an updo is if you have curly hair! All you need to do is to take your lovely curls and pin them one by one at the back of your head, leaving some of them loose to create a messy effect.

You can then apply some hairspray just to ensure that everything stays where it is meant to stay and you will have a red-carpet worthy look!

2. Long waves


Leave your hair grow long and this will have a shaping effect on your curls. In fact, the weight of the hair will make them look more wavy rather than curly, giving you a romantic and soft touch.

Perfect for the woman who doesn’t like to have too much volume in her hair.

3. Pump it up!


On the other hand, a great idea is actually to play with the volume of your curly hair and pump it up even more. Pin it back on the top of your head and blow-dry it so it will come out very wild and sensual.

4. Braids, braids, braids


An easy and quick way of keeping your hair away from your face in the summer. Braid your hair in one simple side-braid for a great look for running your errands in the city or lounging on the beach.

5. Keep it wild!


You love big hair but you hate it when it keeps going onto your face!? Pull it back with pins or a hairband and then leave it wild at the back!

6. Wedding look


This elegant updo is a great look for your wedding! On the most beautiful day of your life it is especially important to not straighten your hair but keep the natural curls to create a sweet and sophisticated updo, with flowers in it and some romantic locks falling down “casually”.

7. Crazy bob


Short hair will have the exact opposite effect of long hair in shaping your curls, that is it will make it more curly and bulky. Go for a very short bob to get the maximum volume.

If you do not have the courage to cut your hair that much, you can try with a faux bob, by doing a very low bun with the longer hair and leave it very close to your nape, hiding it with the shorter hair.

A great idea for the summer.

8. Sweet and romantic


Braid or twist 2 strands of hair from the front and tie them at the back or the side of your head. Then leave the rest of the hair hanging loose in soft waves. A very romantic look!

9. Soft bun


We have already seen how curly hair simply look amazing when styled in an updo and here is another example.

You can style your hair in a soft, low bun by simply pulling it back into a ponytail and, on the last loop, don’t pull it out completely. Then spread out the hair around the hair tie to create a circle.

The perfect look for the evening!

10. Ponytail


Last but not least, a high ponytail is another fab and simple solution for your curly hair. Keep the ponytail very high, so the hair will hang down look at the back of your head, and then cover the hair tie with a lock, so get a more polished look. Simple and effective!

How to Pluck Your Eyebrows at Home in 8 Easy Steps

Eyebrows can completely alter the look of your face. If you have been doing the same plucking routine for years, try something new! A little change in technique can make a dramatic change in your look.

None of us were born with the perfect brow so we all need a little help. Fortunately, all you need is a tweezers, a scissors, and a bit of powder to look like you were born with flawless eyebrows.

Step One: Find Your Inspiration

The eyebrow shape you choose can have a dramatic effect on your face. Your brows really create the framework for your face so try different styles to figure out what suits you.

Check out photos in magazines and search online. Stash aside some pictures so you have a bit of inspiration. Any celebrity who inspires you is bound to have an online tutorial based on their brows.

Sometimes it’s helpful to watch someone else create the look before you go at it on your own. They can give you tips on how to replicate the look you love then you can go out and alter it so it’s perfect for you.

Step Two: Prep Your Face

You will have an easier time plucking right after you shower. Your hair follicles will be open and your hair will be soft. If you take a long, hot shower, you might want to wipe your brows with some rubbing alcohol. There’s a fine line between softened and too slippery so use the alcohol if you are having a hard time gripping hairs.

If you don’t have time for a shower, wash your face with a washcloth or a facial scrub. If your hair is thick and you have trouble plucking, hold a warm compress over your brows for a few minutes.

You can also try using a dab of hair conditioner to soften up your hair as well. Your routine should be based on your hair and skin type so experiment a bit.

Step Three: Get Comfortable

If your skin tends to get irritated by the plucking process, try to make it easier on yourself. Track down some numbing cream before you start. You can typically find some tooth and gum numbing cream along with the toothpaste in any pharmacy.

There is also a gel for teething babies. Either one will help numb your skin to some degree so tweezing is more comfortable.

You are naturally a bit more sensitive the week before and the week of your period. Most of us can’t go two weeks without tweezing so just prepare yourself. You might find that plucking is totally comfortable one week then torture the next.

Plan your numbing supplies according to where your body is at. If you find your skin feeling sensitive and don’t have any supplies on hand, just ice the area briefly before you start. You will be closing your hair follicles but you won’t really feel the tug.

Get Four: Ready Your Supplies

I can’t stress the importance of a good tweezers enough. It’s going to make all of the difference.  Some people love Tweezerman.

It’s true that they can be a lifelong investment since they offer free tweezing. It really depends on how good you are at keep track of your tweezers. If you lose them often, just get decent slanted edge tweezers.

Step Five: Set the Location

You need a bright location to pluck well. Sit next to a window in the afternoon or find the brightest light in your house. Using a magnifying mirror can be helpful but don’t rely on it alone.

It’s easy to overpluck if you are just using a magnifying mirror. It can be great to get a close-up view on the small hairs but use a normal mirror during most of the process.

Step Six: Create an Outline

You’ll want to have a slight arch to your brow. To establish where the peak of your arch should be, use a pencil or an eye shadow brush. Hold it parallel to the outside edge of your iris (the colored part). It doesn’t need to be exact but typically you can see how your brows arch naturally in that area. You will want to tweeze under the arch to make it more pronounced.

Before you get started with the actual plucking, find a white eyeliner pencil to start drawing guidelines.  Use that pencil along with your measuring pencil or brush.

To decide on the width, hold a pencil against the side of your nose. You should pluck any hair that falls over your nose, including your nostrils, to stay away from the unibrow look.

Hold the pencil against the outside corner of your eye to see where your brows should stop. You’ll want them to stop directly parallel to the edge of your eye.

Step Seven: Start Pulling

Brush your brows upwards with a comb or an extra toothbrush. This will give you a good view of the hairs. Trim them in necessary. Hold your skin taut so it’s easier to grab and more comfortable for your skin.

Pull the hair in the direction that it grows. Just grab one or two hairs at a time. It doesn’t really matter where you start as long as you have a clear plan for where you are going.

Remember to step back from the mirror and took a look at your face every time your pluck a few hairs. Keeping your head buried in the mirror makes it too easy to overpluck.

Keep rubbing alcohol on hand as you go. As you pluck, you are going to start getting a buildup of oil so just dab some alcohol on a tissue and clear it off.

Some people recommend that you only tweeze the hair under your brows but that may or may not be the case for you. Again, it really depends on your hair. Work slowly up and down to decide what looks best.

Step Seven: RelaxWoman splashing face with water above bathroom sink

After you finish, if your skin is really irritated, apply some ice or splash it with cold water. Dry it off then apply some aloe vera to calm it.

If aloe vera isn’t working well for you, switch to an over-the-counter cortisone cream. Remember though: cortisone can actually cause irritation if you use it too often so apply it sparingly and save it for when you really need it.

Step Eight: Perfect Your Shape

Brush your brows then hold the shape in place with brow gel. Remember, your eyebrows are hair too so any regular hair product will work well there. While you are brushing, pull the hairs upward at the start of your brow until your arch. After your arch, brush the hairs toward the edge (pulling it in the direction of your ears).

If your brows are a bit sparse or spotty in some areas, like most people’s are, fill them in with some brown shadow. If you prefer working with pencil, go ahead but use short strokes (don’t just draw a line!) then rub them lightly with a brush to soften the look.

When you are selecting a color, you need to think about your hair color as well as your skin tone. In general, if you have dark hair, you should go for a brow color that is one to two shades lighter than your hair. If your hair is light blonde, go for a golden brown. If you are a dark blonde, look for taupe. If you are a redhead, please don’t just use lip liner! Look for a warmer shade of brown with red undertones.

Keep in mind that these are general rules so they definitely don’t work for everyone. Brow pencils and shadows are a great thing to find at a professional makeup counter. Try on different shades so you can see how they will work with your face. If the best shade for you happens to be the most expensive shade, get a sample or take a picture then track down a less expensive version.

If you have a darker skin tone, you might want dark brown. If you skin is light and your hair is dark, try a soft black. Play around with it. You might not even want the same exact shade every day.

Emergencies Procedures for the Overplucked

There can be a lot of awkward growing phases while you are growing out your brows again. Rather than just letting everything come out in a wild mess, do it one row at a time.

Let the first row grow then pluck everything under it. Your brows will still be a little too thin but you can keep working with it and avoid a super patchy look.

More than anything else, you just need to wait it out. Your brows will go back fairly quickly so don’t stress too much. You can use a soft toothbrush to massage the area and speed up the process a bit.

Of course, preventing overplucking is always the best solution. If you are prone to being a heavy handed with the tweezers, set it down. If your brows are looking thick, brush them then trim the tops with a small scissors. It could be that the hair is just too long and you don’t need to pluck much at all.

How to Compliment Blue Eyes

It’s very long, but worth reading, if you have other ideas, please tell us below on the comment box.

If you have blue eyes, play them up! They are a great feature and, with a little help, they can be your best feature.


Blue eyes are somewhat of a rarity in the world. If you have them, you might as well flaunt them! Once you learn how to complement them with the right colors, you will wonder why you ever wasted your time with black eyeliner.

Eye shadow

Eye Shadow

Warm colors are amazing with light eyes. Try out terracotta and gold shades. If you know a bit about art, you know that orange falls exactly opposite of blue. Shades of orange will create a dramatic look and stand in stark contrast to the blue of your eyes.

If you want something vibrant, try purple. Blue and greens can make your eyes look a bit dull. It is often said that women with blue eyes should avoid blue makeup but that isn’t entirely true. If you love the look of bold blue shade, use it!

The most important thing is to find a contrasting color. You don’t want your makeup to be the same exact color as your eyes. If you have dark blue eyes, try sky blue or periwinkle. If you have very light eyes, try navy or royal blue hues.

If you like the smoky eye look, try it with brown rather than black. Black can look a bit harsh next to blue and it might take the attention away from your actual eyes. Work with chocolate and gold to create a truly striking look.

For a daytime version of the smoky eye, just sweep on some metallic bronze shadow. Follow it with a slightly darker shade of eyeliner. For a more neutral day look, try rose and lavender.  They accentuate the blue and also work great when combined with a tan or coffee shade.

One of the best things you can do is get an eye shadow palette with multiple colors. Here are a few that you will want to look for: taupe, chocolate brown, lilac, violet, gold, silver, copper, gray, and rose. They will all look great next to your eyes so play around with different looks.



To make your eyes look bigger, try a brightening pencil if you aren’t using one yet. White is usually the go-to color for the inner lower lash line but it isn’t the best choice for blue-eyed  beauties.  Experiment with some beige liner to get a more natural wide eyed look.

While a true blue eye liner will overwhelm your eyes, turquoise and sapphire shades of liner can create a great look.

For a more glam look, try a metallic liner. Gold and silver are both great next to blue and can play up the icy shade.

Here are a few colors that you will want to look for next time you go shopping for eyeliner: coffee, taupe, lavender, silver, gray, navy, and violet.

If you don’t want to invest in a lot of new eyeliner before you decide what you like, turn your eye shadow into eyeliner. It’s simple and there are a lot of ways to do it. You can buy an eyeliner sealer at most cosmetics stores or online. Take an eyeliner brush and dab it in your eye shadow.  Put some eyeliner sealer on your hand or a small plate then gently swirl your brush into it. It is easy way to make your eye makeup do double duty.

If you don’t have eyeliner sealer, you can also try water or petroleum jelly. If you are using water, simply wet your eyeliner brush they run it over your eye shadow. For more staying power, take your dry eyeliner brush and dab just a little bit of petroleum jelly on it. Once you have the brush lightly coated, run it through your eye shadow.



Navy mascara can be a great choice for women with blue eyes. Black can look a bit harsh but you can still pull it off with a smoky eyed night look.

If your skin and hair are also light, you should use stick with medium or dark brown for a simple daytime look. Plum, burgundy, and navy are also great if you want to mix it up a bit.

The rest of your face


Typically you will want to just play up one feature. If you have blue eyes and light hair, you might want to focus on your eyes. Women with blonde or light brown hair typically have to contend with thin lashes and somewhat sparse brows. If you like to layer on the mascara and amp up your brows, focus on these areas.

If you are trying to draw attention to your eyes, just keep your lips and cheeks simple. Go completely bare or work with subtle colors. Peach or light pink shades are great choices for lipstick and blush. You don’t want your eyes competing with your lips so bring all of the attention to eyes with shadow, liner, and mascara.

Go bare

If you want a minimal look for the hot summer days, work with different shades of brown. A bronzer on your face will really make your eyes pop. If you are naturally pale, keep it simple. Choose a color two shades darker than your natural skin tone.

Before you start bronzing, you need a good base. Choose a foundation that is one shade darker than what you normally wear. Be sure to blend it well at your necks and temples so it looks natural.

To apply bronzer, use a good brush. You can use a big blush brush but keep a dedicated bronzer brush. You don’t want to have any leftover blush mixing in with your bronzer.

Once you have primed your face with a foundation, use your brush to basically sweep on the shape of the number three on both sides of your face. Start at your forehead to create the top of the three. Lightly dust your temples and the sides of your cheeks then move in again to sweep along your cheekbone.

Lightly dust the sides of your face again, moving downward, then sweep the bronzer along your neckline. The idea is to put bronzer where the sun would naturally hit, like your forehead and cheekbones.

Making your wardrobe work for you


If you want your eyes to really stand out, keep your outfit simple. No matter what color your eyes are, they will have to compete for attention if you wear dramatic patterns or bold colors.

Classic colors like black, white, and navy are great for blue eyes. A pop of color like deep purple or gold will work as the perfect complement to your eyes. The same rules for eye makeup apply for clothing. Shades of brown will look amazing with your eye as will orange hues.

Creating a frame


If you want your eyes to look amazing, don’t neglect your brows! If your eyebrows are overwhelming your face or just look really unkempt, it is going to be a distraction. There is no special technique that suits blue eyes more than brown or green when it comes to brows so just work with your face shape and hair color.

If your hair is light, use a brow pencil that is one shade darker than your natural hair color. If your hair is dark, go for one shade lighter than your locks.

You don’t want all of the focus going on your brows, you are just trying to create a great frame for your eyes. Be sure you don’t neglect any stray hairs that can make your eye makeup look drab.

The natural way

One of the simplest things that you can do is wear your hair up. When your hair is up, all of the attention is on your face. If you spent a long time on your makeup, why not show it off? Don’t make your hair compete with your face.

No amount of makeup is going to make your eyes look good if they are bloodshot or puffy. Of course you know that you should get a good amount of sleep every night but sometimes that just not possible. You can reduce puffiness with some good old-fashion tricks at home.

Put cucumber slices or tea bags into a bowl of ice for a few minutes to cool them. Afterward, place them on your eyes for about ten minutes. They both work well so just use whatever you have in the kitchen.

If your kitchen is a bit empty, you can also use a frozen bag of peas on your eyes for a few minutes. Ice works well in general but peas are perfect because they are small enough to settle into cervices around your eyes.

If you are short on time, just use some over-the-counter eye drops. It is a quick step that will make a huge difference.
