Neutralize the pigmentation of the eyelid so that the shadow, which will be applied later, is seen in its purest tone “, explains makeup artist Connie Moreno.
Create a single point of care:
“For the makeup to have harmony and not fall into a too overloaded style, it is important to highlight the mouth or eyes. For example, a red lipstick will be balanced with a neutral shading or in the range of brown; and smokey eyes, with nude or neutral lips, “advises Florencia Ducos, image consultant and personal marketing expert.
Make the outline with shadow.
It is a fundamental tip so that the outline lasts longer. The steps are as follows: “make the first layer with a pencil on the upper eyelid and close to the lash line and on that line, apply the shadow. For an even more marked eyeliner, on these two layers, apply an eyeliner waterproof liquid. The most dramatic effect, on the other hand, will be carried out by following the same steps in the lower eyelid “, Moreno details.

This is on the top and bottom line, being careful not to leave any clumps. “If you dare to wear false eyelashes, you will see a before and after, because they truly empower eye makeup,” recommends Moreno.
Combine the makeup with the outfit.
“In a party look, dressing both shades will up the ante on the image and give the idea of having devoted more attention to personal production,” says Ducos.
Neutralize skin tones.
“The notions of colorimetry will give the guidelines to carry it out. In the reddish areas of the skin, a green toner should be placed, and in the purplish ones, such as dark circles, a yellow corrector. Pigmentation spots on the skin can be counteracted with an orange concealer. It is important to use a small amount of these tones and only on the area that needs to be matched “, Moreno clarifies.
It cleans the shadow remnants very well.
It is very common for particles to remain under the eye and give a messy appearance. With a tissue paper or a clean brush they can be easily removed.
Set the makeup base.
“The secret is to apply colorless and translucent volatile powder. It will allow to mattify unwanted shine and extend the duration of a base of daily use”, suggests Moreno. Another infallible tip: at the end, “spray the skin with thermal water”, completes Ducos.
Make up the eyebrows:
“Filling in the blank spaces of the eyebrows with a shadow or eyebrow pencil in the same natural tone will enhance the look”, Moreno remarks. The secret is to maintain a natural aesthetic.
Do some touch-ups throughout the night.
“Renewing the lipstick after eating, refreshing the eyeliner, passing a tissue paper to eliminate unwanted shine, and adding a thin layer of powder will help to keep us flawless”, concludes Ducos.
