Makeup Monday BB Bits For Your Eyes

Makeup Monday Tips, By Barbie's Beauty Bits
 Happy Monday Lovelies’!   
To start off the week, I’m going to share with you some 
short but sweet makeup tips to achieve a glamorous eye.

BB Bit 1: For The Smokey, Eye Look:  To get the best  smokey eye, it is important to prime both your eyelid and lower lash line, basically all areas that you will place your makeup, you should also place primer.

BB Bit 2: Ensuring Your Fake Eye Lashes Are The Right Size:  To get the best look, you want to make sure that your fake eyelashes are the correct size prior to applying glue.  You can do this by placing the eyelash on your lash line starting from the outside in.  If the eyelash is too long, you want to cut it from the outer corner (the longer area), to the appropriate size.

Tips on how to achieve glamorous eyes, wiith fake lashes & smokey eyes, by Barbie's Beauty BitsBB Bit 3: You Don’t Have To Be Perfect:  I bet you’re glad to read that, aren’t you?  As I’m sure a lot of women would agree, one of the most difficult things to accomplish when using fake eyelashes is making sure they are perfectly in place.  This is hard, especially if you only use lashes occasionally.   However, I have a great tip for you:  Prior to positioning your lashes, you want to put eyeliner on your eye, as close to the lash line as possible. By doing this you will help to hide any imperfections.  For example, you’ve applied your eyelash and there is a small gap between the fake eyelashes and your real ones, where you can see skin or shadow.  But, if you’ve placed eyeliner here prior, you will see the black, hence camouflaging your mistake.  I would also suggest, after your lashes are applied, to go back over with more liquid liner, covering any glue or additional gaps.

BB Bit 4: When To Apply Your Lashes:   After you have situated the eyelash glue, whether on your lash line or on the fake eyelash itself, it is imperative that you wait for the glue to dry a bit before arranging the lash.  The glue should be tacky, as wet glue will not stick as easy, causing your lashes to move around.

BB Bit 5: Ensuring Your Eyelashes Will Stay in Place:  To do this you want to apply more glue to the ends of your fake eyelashes, as this is where it seems to lift most. 

Until next time!
