Our model Jasmine (27) is a sporty guy with an oval face and distinctive eyebrows, which make make-up artist Patricia Bontscheff optimally in shape. "To natural types such as jasmine stronger brow fit particularly well, " explains the make-up artist.
Step 1: Apply base
To keep the color for a long time and not settle, apply a base (eg from Isadora) to the entire upper eyelid and work well with the brush. Alternatively, the complexion primer can be applied, but then dust off.
Step 2: Make Eyelashes:
In order to get more volume later on in the shower, eyelashes need a nice swing upwards. This can help the eyelash curler. It is placed on the lid edge after opening and compressed for a few seconds.
Step 3: Apply eye shadow:
Apply the darker color (Clarins reddish brown) from the middle of the upper lid to the eyelid and sides. To the inner corner of the eye brush the lighter shade. If you make up with a brush, tap off excess powder.
Step 4: Emphasize with eyeliner:
This gives the eye more expression and makes the eyelashes appear fuller. The new pens (eg from BeYu) are easy to handle. Always attach to the inner corner of the eye directly on the eyelash edge and lead in a fine line to the outside.
Step 5: Eyes edge
To intensify the look, also draw a line with the darker eyeshadow color on the lower edge of the eyelashes. Applied with a brush that looks very natural. Hide the transitions with a cotton swab.
Step 6: Blow your eyelashes
This makes the eye look bigger. Apply the mascara brush directly to the eyelash edge. Shake something at the base, then slowly pull upwards. Working from the inside out. Shower twice. Do not forget the lower lash line.
The metallic eye shadow makes Jasmine's eyes shine. Ideal are two shades of color - light on the inside, darker on the outside (for mature skin, choose dull tones instead of metallic ones). With such shading, the shape can be ideally corrected (see also right). Keeping the game under the brows always neutral, so the look looks more open.
How to optimize your eye shape
1. Close-fitting eyes: Apply eye shadow on the upper and lower eyelid only on the outside and hide the contours. Shimmy-looking highlighter comes into the corner of the eye.
2. Wide-eyed eyes: are ideal for making-up Smokey Eyes. With just a single shade, go quietly far beyond the eyelid crease at the top and the eyelid edge below.
3. Small eyes: Eye corners outlined with eye shadow. Distribute highlighter under the eyebrows. Draw a fine line on the inner edge of the lower eyelid with a light kohl.
4. Low-lying eyes: To open them visually, always choose bright colors, brush past the eyelid lines and along the lower edge of the eyelid. Highlighter emphasizes the interior angles.
5. Eyes slanting downwards: Emphasize the eyelid on the outside with a darker eye shadow and allow it to drain to the end of the eyebrow. Put on the inner lid under the complete brow highlighter.
6. Eyes with hiding lows: Prime the lot over the eyelid crease to the brow bow. Apply darker clay along the fold and out. Do without kohl and eyeliner.
