Eye Makeup & Lashes

Eye Makeup & Lashes

I am often asked by clients, “What are the best eye makeup choices to highlight my beautiful extensions?”  Well, the answer is probably not what you would automatically think!  The best ways to highlight extensions is to either not wear any eye shadow at all or opt for lighter shades.  The reason being, is that the darker you go on your lids, the more you are actually camouflaging the extensions.  They just blend into the back ground.  However, if you choose lighter shades, such as taupe, light browns, light grey, beige, cream & pinks, the lashes actually stand out instead of blend.   The use of eyeliner above the upper lash line can add fullness to your lash line.  some like to dot the liner between lashes, this is great, especially if your natural lashes are on the sparse side.  An easy way to add intensity to the eyes, without the difficulty of getting the upper line perfect, is to just line the inner rims of the lid with a black, charcoal grey, or navy blue.  So, go ahead & experiment & see for yourself!  Dark colors camouflage & light make them pop.
