10 Eye Makeup Looks for Beginners, As Seen on Celebrities
1. Purple Party: AC Bonifacio
We’re starting off strong with this all-purple look that can be your intro to a colorful eye. Start off by blending a light purple on your crease and defining your outer corner with a deep blue. Once those are blended, pat a shimmery color on the center of your eyelid for a bright pop! Finish off with some lashes to wisp it out, and a matching purple blush and natural-looking lippie to put all the attention on the eyes. If you’re going to a color-themed party, or just want your makeup to match your outfit, you can always count on this technique. Just change up the shades!
2. Bronze It Up: Sofia Andres
For those who like looking all glammed-up but not overdone, combining bronze hues and shimmer is your best bet. Instead of eyeshadow, you can simply blend a bronzer all over your eyelids for a contoured look. You can define your lashline with a dark brown eyeshadow instead of eyeliner, too! This eye look pairs well with any lip color, be it your go-to MLBB shade or a bold red lip.
3. Bejeweled Gaze: Janine Gutierrez
If you feel like switching things up, try eye jewels! Make your go-to eye look your base, and then just start attaching rhinestones around your lids with eyelash glue. You can opt to do a semi-cat eye shape for a structured look like Janine's, or a random, diffused placement to really channel that Euphoria vibe.
4. All About That Lash: Jane de Leon
There’s just something about falsies that takes an eye look to the next level. It's foolproof for when you want to step up your same-old makeup look with minimum effort!
To cop this look on Jane, apply a champagne shade all over your lids and lower lashline and pop on a wispy lash to finish. Better yet, you can simply get lash extensions for that effortless everyday glam!
5. Shimmer Down Under: Max Collins
If you're obsessed with blushed tones like we are, then this look is right up your alley. Stick to light pinks or peaches for your eyelids and cheeks for a sweet monochromatic look. To add an extra oomph, place a shimmery eyeshadow to your lower lashline instead of your inner corners. It will give your eyes an instant pop of brightness and flair!
6. Pop of Neon: Nadine Lustre
There are plenty of ways to achieve this look: you can either wet an eyeliner brush and draw over your cat eye with some bright eyeshadow, or you can use a liquid matte lipstick for a more budgeproof finish. For a more precise line, do your brows first and use it as a guideline for your cat eye, and then clean up the edges of your wing with concealer after. When you're done, keep everything else about your makeup look a bit muted. A few sweeps of bronzer, a neutral blush, highlighter, and a glossy nude lipstick will tie the look together!
7. Dramatic Turquoise: Janella Salvador
Want to try something a little wild? Try a smoky cat eye! Use a dark yet vibrant shade like turquoise or cobalt blue to keep your eyes bright and awake. If your eyeshadow needs help in the pigment department, wet your brush with a setting spray before you dip into your palette. And to achieve a clean flick, grab some tape, draw your shape, and then peel off the tape when you're done. Lastly, dab some shimmer on the center of your lids to add dimension to the look!
8. Smoky and Sultry: Pia Wurtzbach
When you feel like trying a smoky eye but don’t know where to start, you can't go wrong with this classic technique. Start with a dark brown eyeshadow all over your lids and lower lashline, building it up slowly until you reach your desired intensity. After that, blend a lighter shade on the crease to remove any harsh lines. It may take a while, but just keep blending until your smoky eye looks perfectly diffused! Pop on some wispy lashes and black eyeliner on your waterlines and you’re done!
9. K-Beauty Inspired: Raiza Contawi
This easy K-beauty-inspired look puts all the focus on your eyes. To cop it, apply a peach shade all over your lids and sculpt your outer corners with a mid-toned brown. For a wide-awake effect, create a petite black or brown wing, apply a lifting mascara, and finally, don’t forget to highlight your inner corners with an iridescent shimmer of your choice. Combined with a glowing base, fluffy brows, and lots of highlighter, you can successfully channel your favorite K-pop idol!
10. Orange All Over: Chi Gibbs
A bold color on the lids is always best paired with fresh skin and a nude lip. But if you want to step it up, take cues from Chi by using the same shade on your cheeks and your lips! What’s great about this eye look in particular is that it doesn't matter what your makeup skill level is. All you need to do is blend that one color all over! That said, having a good of brushes and a creamy eyeshadow formula on your side can definitely help make the blending process much smoother.
