Part 1
Eye makeup

    Make your eyes the focal point. Eyes are the main beauty of a human being, so this is the area to focus on the most closely. For the daytime, choose soft, neutral colors that highlight in a natural night. For nighttime, the eyes can be bolder, and will look even prettier with a touch of shimmer or a metallic addition, such as gold.

    Choose neutral shades for the day. Peaches, browns, and soft tones are good choices. Keep the eyeliner minimal or softened.

    Choose dark or bright colours to match your outfit. For example, if your outfit is pink, spread a light pink eyeshadow over your eyelid, then go over it with a darker pink. Blend well on the crease, then finish your dramatic look with a dark red or purple on the corner of your outer eye.

    Add glamour for the evening. For the evening, add strong eyeliner. You may want to add eyeliner to make the look bolder, especially for the evenings. Use a soft brown colour on your waterline or a white, to brighten and enlarge your eyes. Also line the top of your eyes with black eyeliner.

    Add metallic eyeshadow for evening wear. Gold eyeshadow is especially glamorous. Add a small wedge above the eyelash line, with the wider edge facing toward the side of your face, the narrow edge toward the nose. Silver or bronze are other choices that you might like to consider.
