A genuine, heart-warming smile is the best thing you can wear. It lights up your whole face and instantly makes you more attractive. But what if you're wearing a mask or having a rough day and don't want to smile yet look approachable? An eye-smile makeup look can surely help with that. It's a great way to show your happy personality, and it's surprisingly easy to achieve! All you need is a kajal, an eyeshadow palette and a few simple steps.
Keep reading for a tutorial on how to get this eye-smile look yourself.
Step 1: Use a CC cream for Face
The eye-smile makeup is a standalone winner—no need to worry about your face makeup, highlighting and contouring. Your happy eyes will win hearts. Just use a light coverage Lotus Makeup Ecostay CC Complete Care Illuminating Cream to get flawless, even-toned and hydrated skin. It comes with SPF 30, essential for protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Dot the cream on your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Then, use your fingers to blend it in until you have an even coverage. The result is a natural and healthy-looking complexion.
Step2: Prime Your Lids
Before starting your makeup routine, it's essential to prime your eyes. This will create a smooth canvas for your eye makeup and prevent creasing. Apply a small amount of Lotus Makeup Ecostay Insta Smooth Mattifying Perfecting Primer to your eyelids and blend it outwards. Once you have applied primer, you can move on to the rest of your makeup routine.
Step 3: Conceal the Dark Circles
Dark circles may make your eyes look tired and saggy. While trying to achieve healthy puffy eyes for an eye-smile, dark circles may make it look saggy and tired. Therefore this step is unskippable. Apply Lotus Makeup ECOSTAY Insta Hide Crème Concealer and blend well to conceal dark circles and lighten the area.
Step 4: Add a Touch of White
Use the white shade from Lotus Makeup Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Moon Night palette and apply it to your eyes' inner and outer corners. Use it along the lashline for a puffy look. This will lighten, brighten, and open up the eye. Apply only a little amount and blend well, making it barely noticeable.
Step 5: Add Depth
Now that you have created an illusion of wider eyes, it's time to add some depth. Below the white eyeshadow made on the lower lash in step 1, dab a thin stroke of the nude shade from Lotus Makeup Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Autumn Feel palette. This will add dimension to the eyes. Make sure you don't go overboard and keep it natural. Blend well with your blending brush horizontally until it looks natural.
Step 6: Grab the Best Eye Kajal
It's time to define your eyes with a thin liner. Choose waterproof kajal like Lotus Makeup Ecostay Longlasting Kajal - Black so that it does not smudge or run when you apply it. Start from the inner corner of your lash line and work your way out to an extended wing. Keep the stroke as close to the lash line as possible. Smudge a little with a brush before it dries off. Once you have lined your eyes, you can proceed to the next step.
Step 7: Curl Your Lashes
Use the Lotus Makeup Proedit HD Mascara that comes with a curved brush that helps to curl and define lashes. Start at the base of the lashes and wiggle the brush back and forth as you move it up the lash. Do not aim for a dramatic look; instead, keep it natural. Repeat this process until you are satisfied with the coverage.
Step 8: Shape Your BrowsWhen it comes to makeup, eyebrows are often overlooked. However, well-shaped eyebrows can make a big difference in your overall look. Define them with Lotus Makeup Ecostay Perfect Brow Definer. Use light, feathery strokes to fill in sparse areas, and then use a clean spoolie brush to blend the colour evenly.
