Puffy eyes are a common occurrence, especially for those who are prone to swelling. Drinking too much water before bed or crying can cause the eyes to become swollen the next day. Therefore, learning to apply makeup to reduce puffiness is necessary to make our eyes look better.
Almost all women with puffy eyes and monolids would like to know how to apply makeup that suits them best. Creating a deep and vibrant look for puffy eyes can be challenging. If you don’t master the correct techniques, your makeup may end up looking messy, making your eyes even more swollen. Let’s discuss the “non-messy” makeup technique to help you easily create exquisite and beautiful deep-set eye makeup.
For puffy eyes, it is necessary to apply concealer before applying eye makeup. Pigmentation around the eyes not only affects the delicate appearance of eye makeup but also large blemishes such as dark circles and tear troughs can make your makeup appear even more swollen. Therefore, before applying eye shadow, we must first cover them up with concealer.
It is important to choose a concealer that is moisturizing enough to avoid problems such as powder clumping or floating. Choose a shade that is one tone lighter and apply it under the eyes to brighten them up, making your eyes look more radiant. However, do not bring excess powder onto the upper eyelids as the oily ingredients in the concealer may affect the color and adhesion of the eye shadow. Use a dedicated eye shadow primer on the upper eyelids, bringing it down to the lower eyelid where eye shadow will be applied.
In addition to deepening the eye socket, highlighting the eyebrow arch, and enhancing the contrast between light and dark, you can also make your eye makeup appear deeper and more vibrant. You can choose a highlighter product according to the texture of your eye makeup. To avoid creating a round shape, which can make your eyes look more swollen, start by opening the corner of your eye and then use a flat brush to apply the eye shadow powder.
Before applying makeup, shake off any excess powder to prevent heavy-handed application. Then, apply eye shadow horizontally, creating a slender elliptical shape. This can achieve a better effect of reducing puffiness.
Lastly, when applying eye makeup, it is essential to blend from the outer corner of the eye towards the inner corner, darkening the eyelid area. This creates a gradient effect, making the lower eyelid appear deeper and more vibrant.
In conclusion, applying eye makeup to reduce puffiness involves concealing imperfections, choosing the right products, and blending correctly. By following these techniques, you can create exquisite and beautiful deep-set eye makeup effortlessly.
