"Face" Facts Makeup Series : Part Four - All About The Eyes

Today we will cover the eyes! This is one of my favorite features to play up! Eye makeup can be a great way to change your look! You can easily take a daytime look to a night look with just a touch of liner and some extra shadow. Lets start with liners!

Your basic liners are going to consist of pencils, liquid liners, powder based liners, and gel or cream liners. I love them all! Your most basic is the pencil. This is super easy to use and they start at under $1.00! You definitely can't beat that!

Liners are a great way to open eyes and to create drama! Check out these two looks. You have a basic look and then a more dramatic look.

 There is so much you can do with liner and so many different looks you can create! Check out this guide via pinterest!

Next up is shadow! This is definitely one of my favorite beauty products to buy! Your basic shadows will include : powder (compact/pressed), creams, pencil or crayon shadows, and loose pigments.


Shadows, in my opinion, are one of the easiest ways to change your look! These can be a lot of fun to play with! There are so many options when doing shadow! Check out some of these looks!


Any shadow type will come in a variety of colors. Colors can be tons of fun, but a rule of thumb is to always start with your basic colors! A quick and easy option for the basics is to start out with a pallet or quad.

Drugstore finds like  elf  or Rimmel are going to cost much less than department or specialty brands.
You can pick up some for as little as $3.00! Once you have your basic colors then you can splurge on the more "fun" shades!

The last thing on the list today is Mascara! This is a must for me. I have very light colored lashes and wouldn't look totally "put together" without my mascara! Mascara, in general, will help to lengthen, thicken, plump, or curl. It can be found in a variety of shades and in most cases can be purchased in a waterproof formula!


I have tried so many different mascaras! It takes a few trial and errors to find your perfect match! I prefer mascaras that plump and lengthen the lashes! Your average price is going to be in the range of $6.00 to $10.00, but some will be as little as $3.00 for drugstore/Target type brands.

I hope you are all having a great week so far! Stay posted for part five which will cover the lips!
