Eye Makeup Tips: Best Makeup to Wear with Your Black Dresses

eye makeup tips

Want to paint your face for an evening soiree, but are lacking the super face painting skills of a celebrity glam artist? No need to panic!

If you need to match your makeup to you little black dress, all you need is a few expert beauty tips.  Read on for  tricks to help you dust your lids, complement your casual or club dresses and add a little sexy fringe to your lashes.

Swipe a primer on your lids.

To keep your eyeshadow from sliding off your eyes, rub a pea-sized amount of liquid primer on your eyelids. Don’t have any primer handy? Use concealer or foundation to create the smooth canvas instead.

For a sexy complement to your little black dress, swipe two to three shades of eye color on the eye crease, lid and brow bone.

For subtle seduction, dab shimmery brown, cream or taupe on the center of your eyelids. Add definition to the crease with gray or chocolate eye shadow, applied with a fluffy and large eye shadow brush.

Highlight your brow bone with a stroke of bone, gold or vanilla using a thin liner brush. Blend all three shades of shadow with a large blush brush to complete your soft and sexy eye look.

It’s amazing what a bold black or blue eyeliner color can do for your eyes!

To make your baby blues or brown eyes pop, draw a line of color using an eye pencil or liquid liner on your upper lash line. If you are wearing a bold lip for evening with fabulous little black dresses , like in a red or fuchsia, skip this high-wattage eye-lining step.

  • Eye Makeup Tip: If you are using a pencil to line your eyes, keep it sharpened to keep the wood casing that surrounds the eye pencil from scratching your eye. Line the lower inner rims of the eye with an off-white eyeliner pencil.

Long, full lashes add a dash of femininity to an evening look.

Begin by prepping your lashes for two coats of black or blue mascara with a small eyelash curler. Starting at the base of your upper eyelashes, press the small curler up from the roots of your lashes to the tips.

To add extra volume to your lashes, wiggle the mascara wand at the base of your top lashes before pulling the wand through to the ends.If your mascara tends to look a little spidery, apply this lash-boosting product to the tips of your upper lashes only.

Finish your sultry and seductive eye makeup look with a strong red lip, rosy or coral blush for the cheeks and pearl pink nail polish.

Call it love at first brights: A bright blush or a strong lip color makes your eyes twinkle, will take 5 years of aging off the face, and add radiance to your cheeks and lips instantly.

No need to panic anymore if you are lacking a star-worthy eye look that’ll flatter your black dress for evening. Now you have a simple, sophisticated and chic makeup look that will complement your little black dress perfectly.

    You said that to make your “baby blue or brown eyes pop, draw…” But does this apply for bright green eyes? Because I have really green eyes and I know that different colours are do’s and don’ts with them. So would these tips work for my eyes as well?
