How to do a Beginner’s Eye Makeup:

1. To do a beginner’s base, you will first have to cleanse the surface of the skin. This is very important and you should use a deep cleansing face wash. This will also help you to cleanse thoroughly. If you have oily surface then dirt and grime will tend to stick more than on a dry surface. Therefore you should use some oil-free cleansing wash. Dry your skin and then you can use the concealer.

2. Concealer is very essential in case you are a beginner. You will need to cover your blemishes and you will also have to use some on the area underneath the waterline. You can also use this on the lid and at the sides. This will make the eyes look fresher.

10. If you can draw a proper line with a water liner then you should slowly start at the inner portion of the upper lid and then go all the way to the exterior bending slightly upwards. You can also do from the exterior side and then proceed towards the inner side.

11. If you do not have proper hands or you smudge the lining, then cut two pieces of scotch tape and use a single piece to demarcate the upper lid at the side of the eye. Draw the lining over this and then remove the tape. You will get a proper lining.

12. Use kohl on the lower line. Use some mascara for both lashes.
