How To Do Eye Makeup With A Business Card?
Have you ever thought of doing your eye makeup with a business card? Yes, I said business card! And no, we are not pulling a fast one on you! You can use your business card to create that perfect eye look. Creating eye makeup with a business card is simple, but effective. It does require little bit of practice though. But, once you master the art, no one can stop you from creating gorgeous eye makeup looks!
Take a medium length paper business card, check for the length by holding it over the eye area. Avoid using heavy, plastic or sharp ended business cards as it might hurt the delicate eye area. It is also important to check whether the business card has a nice blunt and rounded shape. Make sure that the edge isn’t sharp.
Now, place the flat end of the business card on the outermost corner of your eye area. To locate the right angle to place the business card, just follow the natural line of your lower lash line and connect it upwards with the business card as shown in the image. If you want to create a very dramatic look, then just tilt the business card outward to extend the line of your eye makeup.
Take a matte brown eyeshadow and start applying it to the outer corner of your eyes. Trace the business card at the outermost corner of your eyes to create a perfect sharp end for your eye makeup. Place your tiny finger on the cheek area to get a steady hand and prevent mistakes.
Now, place the business card below your eyes for catching the eyeshadow remnants. Take a medium gold eyeshadow in shimmery finish and apply it to the entire eyelid area. Pat the eyeshadow to build good color intensity. Wetting the brush with a finishing spray or water will also help in building up deeper color pigmentation of the eyeshadows.
Now, use a fluffy blending brush and gently blend the eye makeup for a neat and seamless finish.
Take a black liquid eye liner of your choice and start drawing a very thin line by tracing the business card at the outermost corner of your eyes to create a neat end for the eye liner. Like before use your tiny finger to steady your hand. We don’t want an unsteady hand doing our makeup, do we? Then, complete the eye liner look by following the natural shape of your eyes.
And that’s it! Your eyes are ready to party! Now, don’t throw away all those unused business cards. It’s time you put them to good use!
People think that makeup is all about spending money. But that is not true! If you know a trick or two, you can change the way you look without emptying your pocket!
So what are you waiting for? Use your business card to create some magic!
