How can I get a sexy eye look?

Applying Sexy Eye Makeup

Sexy eye makeup is perfect for a first date, a night out at the club or anytime you want to look and feel flirty and sexy.

Aren't cosmetics amazing? They can take you from daytime/office "Blah", to nighttime "Wow" with just a few simple steps.

Shape your eyebrows.
Sexy eyes have fine eyebrows with a nice arch. To make shaping your eyebrows easier, purchase a stencil kit. These kits take the guess work out of plucking and shaping your brows. At, you can find the Paula Dorf Brow Stencil Kit, which features brow stencils in very fine, fine, natural and full to create the perfect brow shape.

Apply a base.
Use a primer or eye shadow base over your lids and wait 3-5 minutes for it to set. You can also add a dusting of translucent loose powder.

Choose your eye shadow colors.
For a flirty, sexy look, select eye shadow colors such a pinks, plums or greens. Apply a light color over the entire lid from lashline to crease. Add a dark color of the same hue into the crease. Finish by blending a medium shade from the crease to the browbone.

Line your top lashes.
Line your lashes with a black ink or liquid liner. The line can be thick as you like but it should extend past the outer corner of your eyes by 1/4 inch or so. Flare the liner up and out as it extends.

Set your eye makeup.
Add a dusting of translucent powder over your eye makeup to help it set and prevent creasing.

Curl your lashes.
Using an eyelash curler, curl lashes and then apply two coats of black mascara. Use a cotton swab dipped in eye makeup remover to clean up any mistakes.

At, you can purchase the cosmetics you need to create sexy eye makeup. Look for eyeshadow kits which contain three or four shades of coordinating shadows.
