Beauty Experts Share Top Makeup Tips for Your Eyes
TOP Makeup Tips for Your EYES:
Lifting the Eyelid:
"Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner."
—Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Chanel celebrity makeup artist
Eye Lotion in Icebox:
"To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup."
—Petra Strand, creator of Pixi by Petra
Adding a Few Drops of Saline Solution:
"To extend the life of your mascara, add a few drops of saline solution to the tube and swirl the brush around. This will reinvigorate and add moisture to the formula."
—Kerry Cole, style director of Becca Cosmetics
Applying Mascara Before Liquid Liner:
"Apply mascara before liquid liner to create a guide for the perfect cat-eye flick."
—Sarah Lucero, global director of education and artistry for Stila
Using a Luminizer in the Inner Corner:
"My favorite 'look younger' makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”
—Deanna Melluso, celebrity makeup artist
