Learn to Apply Eye Makeup by Browsing Blogs

25By learning the various techniques from makeup bloggers, applying eye makeup will be simple. There are likely many tips and tricks that even the most experienced wearer can benefit from learning.

Choose the Right Eye Shadow Colors

Usually, one will wear three different shades in one. They are a medium, dark and light shade that all go in different areas. Medium goes on the lid, light on the top, and the dark in the crease of the eyelid. Colors should be chosen from the same family, such as blues and browns.

A great tip from makeup bloggers is to use shades of eye shadow that go with the eye color of the wearer to enhance them.

· Blue eyes are great with similar shades to include grey, silver, and dark blues. Bronze, copper, brown and tape are also beautiful with blue eyes.

· Brown eyes benefit from bronze, tape and brown, but also look lovely with purple, grey, blue and green.

· Green eyes can also wear similar shades to include all shades of green; pink, purple, gold and taupe also look great.

· Those with grey eyes will do well wearing charcoal, silver and blue with contrasting shades being brown, green, purple and gold.

· Hazel eyed beauties are lucky as they can use almost any color. Most go for golds and greens to bring out those elements of the eye color, but purple, wine and brown look great too.

· Eye shadow primer will make the shadow last longer.

Base and Highlights

Here are the steps to follow as advised by the top makeup bloggers worldwide:

1. Starting with the lightest shade, swirl the shadow brush in the makeup and sweep it over the eyelid.

2. Gently blend the shadow to the corner of the eye, away from it.

3. Brush some loose powder underneath the eye right below the lashes to pick up any loose specks.

4. Use a primer to stop the shadow from creasing if desired.

5. Apply the highlight in the inside corners to have an eye-opening effect and define the eyes.

Apply the eyeliner

When applying eyeliner, makeup bloggers recommend putting the tip of the liner pen or pencil as near as possible to the lash line on the upper eyelid. Then slowly drawing a smooth line from the middle to the outside corner makes for a perfect start.

From there, one can extend the eyeliner a bit outside that corner, and make what’s called a wing tip. A pencil or liquid eyeliner will do, it’s purely a matter of choice. Most use brown for daytime and black for night ventures.

Applying Mascara

Makeup bloggers advise to begin applying mascara from the middle of the eye. The brush should be dipped just once and dragged along the rim to get rid of extra mascara. If the eyelids are lowered as the mascara brush is applied and moved side to side it will apply it perfectly. Some use mascara on their lower lashes while some do not.

Shade the Eyebrows

Not many have thick brows, so many will fill them in. Take an eyebrow pencil or some shadow and go along the natural shape of the eyebrows. Apply less the closer it gets to the nose, and use a color that’s a bit lighter than the hair color. For blondes, go a few shades darker.

Here are some ideas on how to care for your newborn blog so it will grow and prosper.

Feed and care for your blog on a consistent, ongoing basis. How? Start with your blog’s appearance. Everyone thinks their baby is the cutest ever, but here is chance to make that a reality.

Create a look and first impression that will make others take notice.

Design is important, but there are also lots of widgets, plugins and options that you can incorporate into your blog, which will add interest and capabilities. Enhance your new baby with some sharing capabilities, comment functions, analytics, images and perhaps some video. Create some static blog pages, which will be great for SEO purposes.

Next, read other blogs so you know what is happening in the Blogosphere. Single out bloggers who write about similar topics and have attracted a following, and link back to them in your blogroll. Their blogs were once babies, too.

It won’t be difficult to locate other like-minded bloggers because there are currently more than 150 million existing blogs worldwide. This means that there are blogs about pretty much anything and everything so get out there and do some searching. If you like a blog post, take the time to leave comments on other blogs and you will find that some of those bloggers will reciprocate.

Always respond to people who leave comments on your blog. You’ll find that blogging is more exciting if you can get a dialogue going with your readers. You can also find websites to announce the birth of your blog or share your posts.

Feeding your blog means you will need to update frequently and put time and effort into your posts. Let your personality shine. Eventually, you will find your “blog voice” and posting will come together more easily. All this attention will allow your infant blog to flourish.

You will also need to continue to upgrade as your blog grows. This means classes, workshops and conferences. Hey, you have a little blog that wants to be a big blog — perhaps a blog star? Education, travel and networking are necessary. Who said raising a blog baby would be cheap?

You might think your little blog is already a star. If so, go ahead and enter a few blogging beauty contests to see if it will snag a prize or two. Nobody willing to give you a prize? You can create a few of your own and make yourself the sole recipient. I’ve done it and it works quite well, actually.

When your blog begins to attract a solid following, you might think ‘Now it the time to launch another blog.’ A word of caution: This is where blogging can get complicated.

Make sure you have the time and energy to run more than one blog. Parenting comes with responsibility, so don’t have more blog babies than you can care for.

By now you are getting the picture that blogging takes a significant amount of time and discipline.
Like anything in life, you have to actively participate. If you only sporadically update your blog, for example, it will be impossible to attract a following. If you have no following, then you will lose interest and before you know it, you’re not blogging at all.

At that point, your abandoned blog become an orphan. Orphan blogs are terribly sad. Your baby blog is depending on you, so don’t give up. Keep feeding your little blog and nurture it along. Who knows, your baby blog may possibly change the world.
