12 Makeup Steps For Gorgeous Eyes
A good eye primer can help you achieve a smoother, more even, and longer-lasting foundation application. It will also help your makeup stay in place throughout the day without creasing or fading, which is important if you’re wearing any kind of eye shadow.

Primers come in all different formulas—creamy, gel-like, shimmery—so finding the right one for your skin type is key! A lot of primers include ingredients that help conceal signs of dark circles (like cucumber extract) or diminish puffiness under eyes (like caffeine). If you have dry skin, try using an oil-free cream primer; Thus, if you have oily skin try using a silicone based gel; if both types suit your needs then consider using both!
Conceal any discoloration.
Next, it’s time to conceal any discoloration. For this step, you’ll need a concealer that’s a shade lighter than your skin tone. Apply the concealer with a small brush and blend out with your fingers. This will help keep the product from looking cakey on the skin.
Now apply the concealer to any dark spots or under-eye circles on your face (even if you don’t have them). Be sure to apply it around both corners of each eye as well as across the bridge of your nose as well as down toward your upper lip—this is where most people tend to get redness or discoloration!
Use a small fluffy brush to blend the concealer.
Next, you’ll want to use a small fluffy brush to blend out the concealer. This is where it’s important to have a soft, flexible brush with synthetic bristles so they don’t irritate your skin.
You’re applying this in circular motions around the eye area, blending outwards so that there are no harsh lines left behind by your under-eye concealer.
Apply a lid base to keep everything in place and make the color pop.
Once you have the color on your lid, it’s time to set it in place and make sure that your eyeshadow doesn’t crease or fade. Applying a primer will help keep everything fresh and looking great all day long. The best way to apply primer is with a brush or your finger; I personally prefer using my fingers since they’re quick and easy!
If you’re using a white primer (like Urban Decay Primer Potion or NYX HD Eye Shadow Base), apply it before applying any other products to your eyes so that when you do add color later, there will be no gray cast from the base itself as well as no visible lines from where certain areas were covered up with product first vs others. This step makes sure all those pretty hues pop off the lids rather than being dulled down by some sort of base hue before hand!
Using your fingers, apply a light pink shadow over the lid.
You can use a small brush to blend the concealer, but using your fingers is faster and gives you better control. The key is to keep blending until there are no streaks left behind.
Next, apply concealer to areas of discoloration or dark circles with a small brush (I use this one from Real Techniques).
If you have trouble concealing under your eyes, try applying some first with your finger and then following up with the brush so that it’s blended better than if you had just used the brush alone. After applying all over the face and neck area (if needed), blend well into each layer of makeup that goes on top so there are no visible lines separating them!
Take a deeper pink shadow and apply it to your crease with a contour brush.
To really bring out the beauty of your eyes, you’ll want to take a deeper pink shadow and apply it to your crease with a contour brush. Using the same shade that you used on your lid, blend until there are no harsh lines left. This will help create a seamless transition between the inner corner of your eye and your brow bone.
Blend the dark and light shadows together for a seamless look.
In order to blend, use a fluffy brush. If you don’t have a fluffy brush, I recommend using a small brush instead. You can also use a makeup sponge or even your fingers if that’s all you’ve got!
