1. Prep your eyes with concealer
Concealer can be used to cover up under-eye circles or just the bluish discoloration just under your inner eye will do the right thing following the evening eye makeup trend. To cover dark under eye circles, apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then under the pupil and the third on the outer edge. Pat, never rub with your ring finger (this finger tends to have the softest pad) until it disappears.
2. Apply eye base to your lid
Eye base is the secret to keeping your shadow in place for hours when you are applying the evening eye makeup trend. Without properly priming your lid first, your eye shadow will likely end up a greasy line in your crease.
3. Follow with eyelinerSmokey eye, use a brush to pat in a dark eye shadow along the upper lid and below the lid. You don’t want a stark line, instead you want to blend it so it’s “smudge-y.”
4. Apply eyeshadow.
It’s great to use a three-toned shadow and build from lids to brow. Allowing them to blend into each other like a rainbow is gorgeous, according to celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal. Start with a light color that almost matches your lid. Sweep the color across the lid and up to your brow bone. Follow with a medium color across your lid only. Build on this with a darker color in the crease. Blend the colors well.
5. Brighten your eyes with a highlighter
This step involves only the inside part of the eye. Putting a bit of your lightest eye shadow in the inner corner of your eye will brighten evening eye makeup trend significantly.
6. Highlight your brow
Take the same light eye shadow and dab it on your brow bone, concentrating on your mid-brow outward. Blend with your finger. Use Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat just below brow and just above it, but a super light shadow will do you.
7. Curl lashes
An eyelash curler will make even long lashes look more gorgeous. For added effect, you can heat the curler under a blow-dryer for a couple seconds. Test curler before applying to lashes because you could burn yourself.
8. Apply mascara
Place the wand of your mascara brush at the bottom of lashes and wiggle back and forth. Follow with another few sweeps of the wand. Apply to bottom lashes as well and get the evening eye makeup trend perfect for every occasion.
