Start with Clean, Moisturized Skin

  •  First, ensure that the eyelids are cleaned with a gentle cleanser.
  •   After drying, apply a small amount of eye cream or moisturizer.
  •  Clean skin helps the makeup stick better.
  •  The moisturizer helps keep the skin smooth.
  •  You can use a hydrating eye cream for sensitive skin types.
Use a Good Quality Eye Primer
  •  Apply a thin layer of eye primer over the eyelids.
  •  The primer makes a smooth base. It also makes the eye makeup last longer and stops it from creasing.
  •  For a long show, you would benefit from a high-endurance primer.
Choose Complementary Colors
  •  Pick eyeshadow colors that go well with the eye color and skin tone.
  •   The right colors make the eyes pop.
  •   For blue eyes, shades of gold or bronze would make the eyes stand out.
Blend, Blend, Blend
  •  Use soft makeup brushes to blend the eyeshadow colors together.
  •  Blending makes the colors flow into each other, creating a polished look.
  •  Use a lighter shade on the eyelid and a darker shade on the crease, blending them for a smooth transition.
Highlight the Inner Corner
  •  Apply a light eyeshadow or highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes.
  •  This makes the eyes look wider and brighter.
  • Use a shimmering white highlighter for extra sparkle.
Eyeliner
  • Use eyeliner to draw a line along the lash line.
  •  Start thin at the inner corner and make it thicker towards the outer corner.
  • This technique creates depth and opens up the eyes.
  •   Do a bold winged eyeliner for a more dramatic stage look.
Mascara Application
  •  Apply mascara on both upper and lower lashes.
  •  Mascara gives length and volume, making the eyes look bigger and more defined, especially for false eyelashes.
  •  Use waterproof mascara for long-lasting wear.
Eyebrows Matter
  •   Fill in the eyebrows with a pencil or powder.
  •  Well-shaped eyebrows frame the eyes and make them stand out more.
  •  A Drag Performer might use an eyebrow gel to set the shape for a long-lasting look.
Consider Eye Shape
  •  Study the shape of the eyes and choose makeup styles that fit.
  • Different eye shapes benefit from other makeup techniques.
  • A cut crease makeup style could be flattering for a Drag Performer with almond-shaped eyes.
Practice and Experiment
  •  Try different styles and colors to find what looks best.
  • Practice makes perfect, and it’s fun to try new looks.
  •  A Drag Performer could experiment with glitter eyeshadows for a show-stopping look.
Keep it Clean
  •  Wash makeup brushes often.
  •   Dirty brushes can spread bacteria and cause eye infections.
  •   You should clean all the brushes used on the eyes after a show.
Remove Makeup Before Bed
  • Always take off eye makeup before going to sleep.
  • Leaving makeup on can irritate the eyes and damage the skin.
  •   Use a gentle makeup remover suitable for sensitive eyes.

Remember, becoming skilled at eye makeup takes time and practice, especially for Drag Performers who often aim for bold, dramatic looks. So, be patient and experiment to find what makes those eyes shine.
