Eye makeup must-haves


Eye makeup is something most of us swear by. Enhancing the eyes by means of various products have been a practise since ancient times, hint Cleopatra? But with so many choices of makeup products, often we get confused what to carry and what not to carry. Makeup lovers often end up with a bag full of products, many of which are not even used, at least not on a regular basis. The truth is, you do not need to carry numerous products to make your eyes look appealing. Just a few products will help you get through different occasions if used smartly. Also, it saves you a lot of space and money.

Here’s what all you need to get your eyes on fleek on special occasions, while traveling or on a daily basis.

Black Kajal
The jet black kajal has been a staple in every woman’s kitty. It is the easiest way to beautify the eyes by defining them and works like a charm for all skin tones and eye colours. Call it kohl, kajal, kajal-pencil, or kajal-eyeliner, if you need to choose just one product for eyes, it has to be this. Kajal has gone beyond black and is available in a variety of colours these days, but the black still remains a classic. One simple kajal can make your eyes look soft, intense or sharp, according to the way you wear it. Apart from tight lining the eyes or swiping it on the lower lash line or along the upper lash line like an eyeliner, the creamy kajal can be used to smudge and create a smokey eye look. It is that one product you need to make your eyes look pretty on an everyday basis.

After kajal, it’s the eyeliner that has every woman’s heart. A simple stroke of liner packs a punch and glams up the eyes infinitely. And the best part is that it can be worn in different styles like plain, winged, graphic, double wings, and more, there’s no end to creativity. Black is basic and works best but you can experiment with colours to enhance your eye artwork! While liquid eyeliner is the most common, there are other formulas like gel and pencil to make your life easier. MyGlamm has a special eyeliner that comes with a rolling disc applicator. The Wheelie Precision Eyeliner & Stylist is the answer to all your eyeliner troubles, if you do not have a steady hand or can never seem to get even wings. The Wheelie comes with special pizza cutter wand that just rolls on the eyes to give skip-free, straight line in one stroke. Now your eyeliner wings will always be even (amen) with the Wheelie.

Brow product
Believe it or not, eyebrows can completely make or break a look. Yes, a well-defined pair of brows can make you look like a goddess while unruly, unkempt ones can make you look like you just came back from war (yes, that bad). So, if you do not groom the brows, it’s time to invest in eyebrow grooming and enhancing products. From eyebrow powder to pencil, gels and mascara (yes, brow mascara), there are many products specially designed for your brows. Invest in good quality products like the Stay Defined HD Brow Powder from MyGlamm to keep your brows in shape always. Thick, dark, full brows are in, have always been in, so even if you have sparse hair on the eyebrows, the brow powder will keep them luscious-looking. Full brows also make you look younger and bring out the eye makeup in a better way. If you have ignored your brows, time you showed them some TLC.

Neutral Eyeshadow
Nude is the way to go! When it comes to makeup, nudes or neutral colours are definitely having a big moment. Be it lipstick, blush or eyeshadow, neutral colours have captured a lot of attention and because as these look flattering on everybody. Nudes can go well with all skin tones, you just need to find the right one for you, are safe to wear and can be worn on all occasions, and can enhance your appearance without looking OTT.

We don’t have to tell you about the magic of mascara. The fact that many women (and men) cannot live without the product speaks volumes! Mascara works magic on the eyelashes making them appear thick, long and voluminous. A few coats of mascara add that drama on the eyes making them look more alluring and enhancing the eye makeup further, if any. Mascaras come with different formulas which can add volume, length, curl and separation to the lashes or all of these as required. It’s also easy to wear and apply on days when you do not want to put makeup, let mascara jazz up your eyes without being too obtrusive.
