Hey Beauties I know its been a while since I’ve posted and wanted to share with you  something that can help jazz up your every day beauty regimens, so lets get to it. When trying to figure out how to play up your  eyes whether its for a everyday or a night on the town, whether you’re looking to simply switch it up a bit or simply try something different. Here are “7 Classic Eye Makeup Looks to wear Now”, that will have you turning heads for sure.

1. CLASSIC CAT EYE

One of the most classic eye makeup looks is the classic cat eye. While it does take some time to master the right cat eye, there are a few tricks that can help you get there. To perfect a cat eye you can use either a liquid liner for experienced drawers or a gel based liner with an angle brush for beginners. Keep the line thin and close to the inner lash line while you slowly start to create a thicker line towards the end of your lash line. Make a little wing tip from the end of your lash line and upwards on your lid. You can even use a small piece of paper pressed against the end of your eye as a guide for your wing.

2. SMOKEY EYE

A smokey eye doesn’t have to be super dark and straight out of an action hero movie. You can create a classic smokey eye with all types of colors. A Smokey eye can be achieved using all but 3 colors your highlight, transitional color and your base color. Check out my previous post Step by Step “Smokey Eye” Tutorial to learn how to achieve this look.

3. NEUTRAL EYE

NEUTRAL MAKEUP

For everyday eye makeup, remember less is more. Sometimes a simple makeup look can make a huge statement. Keeping in line with your skin color’s natural undertones really helps when choosing neutral eye shadow colors as well. To keep your makeup quite neutral stay away from frosty eye shadows.

4. SEXY SHIMMER

When you do use frost and shimmer, it’s best to go big for a night out or special event. Rose gold, yellow gold or silver on the eyelid by itself is lovely, or incorporate it with a smoke eye.

5. BARE IT ALL

NATURAL MAKEUP

One of my favorite classic eye makeups is simply the nude eye. You can wear this all day and play it up for night. Keeping it simple is key.

6. EYE CATCHING COLORS
