Make Your Eyes Beautiful: Ugly Eyes Makeup Tips

After doing a little research on your eye type, you may still seek some ideas to either draw attention away from your eyes or make them prettier.

Below are some very important tips that should help you deal with your ugly eyes and make them more beautiful than you would ever dream of.

1. Understand the Colors

We’re sure that part of the problem is that maybe you don’t understand the colors that work well with your eyes and skin tone. By looking at this, you will be able to change how your eyes appear and accentuate them in a way that makes them shine.

Part of the problem is that maybe you don’t understand the colors that work well with your eyes and skin tone.

For brown eyes, it’s always best to go with warm neutral colors or purples and blues.

On the flip side, when it comes to someone who has blue eyes, warm shades and oranges are always a nice addition that can help elevate the eye look when it comes to make-up. 

Hazel eyes should look at greens and purples as well as browns and golds for a more intense focus on the eyes.

And lastly, green eyes are always great with reds, golds, and warm oranges.

Of course, you also need to consider your skin tone, but that’s a whole different article!

2. Accentuate the Features You Like

If you don’t like your eyes, go for another feature on your face that you like. By accentuating those, you’ll draw attention away from the area in which you are not confident.

Maybe you love your brows; they’re thick and nice, so work with them. Or maybe your lips are your favorite part, accentuate your make-up and focus on them so you can draw the attention away from your eyes.

3. Brighten Your Eyes

Sometimes we don’t like certain body parts because they’re not what we expect them to be. Instead of steering clear of them, working to enhance them is the best option.

When it comes to your eyes, you can always use a flesh-tone eyeliner to help brighten them up. This will help eliminate tired eyes and give you a more fresh and more vibrant look.

4. Work On Your Lashes

Just like we talked about accentuating certain features, you can focus your eye makeup solely around your eyelashes. For those with thick, long, beautiful eyelashes, accentuating them can be a great thing.

One of the best ways to do that is to use a hot eyelash curler. You’re curling your lashes to make them more prominent and bring a new look to your eye make-up. Note that some Tik Tok videos and Youtube videos recommend using a blowdryer on your lash curler. Don’t do this.

Just like we talked about accentuating certain features, you can focus your eye makeup solely around your eyelashes.

If you don’t have those thick lashes, you could get lash extensions or false lashes.

5. Mascara Adds Drama

Mascara has been used for thousands of years, and dates back to ancient Egypt (or before), when it was primarily Kohl. There’s a reason it’s been used for so long: it adds a great deal of drama and mystery to the eyes.

6. Use an Eyeshadow Primer

An eyeshadow primer (or concealer) will help your eyeshadow stick evenly on your skin. If you’re skipping your primer, you may find that your eyeshadow is fading or dissipating too quickly, which is ruining your look.


Conclusion

No matter how much someone tells you that your eyes are not ugly, if that’s how you feel,we understand. But with some care and makeup, you can make your eyes look amazing. That’s what makeup is for!

We have offered you a look at some tips that may be able to help you elevate your eye make-up, giving you more confidence in the beauty of those eyes of yours. With more confidence, your inner beauty will shine, too, which is always great!
