  • Use a beveled brush, draw a line with shadows along the lower ciliary contour, draw an arrow. The length of the line can be whatever you want.
  • Next, turn the “tail” into a triangle-arrow, leading its second end into the crease of the eyelid. Bring the shade to the middle of the crease, then blend using an intermediate shade.
  • The “tail” should have a clear outline. To achieve this result, you first need to bring the upper eyelash contour, then fill in the voids in this “tail” with a brush. Blend the borders to a light haze.
  • In case of getting “dirty” borders, it is recommended to use not a concealer, but light shadows to make the drawing neat.
  • The final stage is coloring the eyelashes with mascara and emphasizing the mucous membrane of the eyes with the help of kajal.

Step-by-step instructions for applying makeup – basic requirements

It is very important to understand that bird makeup is considered a complex technique that requires maximum patience and effort.

There are some instructions you need to follow:

  • Moisturizing the face. Allows you to easily distribute the tone. Use a moisturizing cream, then apply foundation and set the result with tinted powder. It is acceptable to use loose or colorless mattifying powder, as you wish.
  • Eyebrow shaping. Use a special brow brush to get a beautiful shape. Apply special shadows on the eyebrows, painting over all the hairs.
    If you have unruly eyebrow hairs, use wax to fix them, then correct them with shadows.
  • Base application. To achieve the best result and smooth distribution of shadows, the base will help, which should be applied to the upper and lower eyelids. So the shadows will not crumble, roll or swim.
    The base provides reliable fixation of makeup and helps to avoid “blurring” during an important event.
  • The structure of the form to fill with shadows. Use a small brush to apply eyeliner or contour, pick up brown shadows and use them to create the basis for future make-up. Open your eyes as much as possible when applying shadows so that you can correctly outline the contour.
    Next, create a “tail” that fits perfectly with the shape of your eyes. If you have an overhanging eyelid, semi-circular or semi-oval outlines of shadows will look great. If you have a different eye shape, you can choose any suitable option.
    Next, you should work out the shape with clearer strokes and bring it to the ideal.
  • Darkening the contour with matte shadows. With the same small brush, emphasize the intended outline, using a dark shade of brown shadows. This will help achieve a more shady and defined line that connects the top and bottom outline outline. To blend, use a pencil-shaped brush.
    Color elaboration is carried out very carefully so as not to accidentally stretch the borders.
  • Filling the moving eyelid with shadows. When performing this stage, it is permissible to use one color or several shades, which need to be shaded step by step and make smooth transitions between them.
    In the first case, apply any shade of shadows on the moving eyelid, blending so that you get a smooth connection with the contour. Be careful not to scratch or rub it off. In the second option, the use of peach and white shades is relevant.
    Pick up peach shadows on a semicircular brush and gently apply to the “tail” of the contour. With a light shade, fill in the area from peach color to the corner of the eyes. Also apply white shadow under the eyebrow and work with a brush.
  • Creating accents in the outline drawing. To create a more expressive contour, emphasize it from the inside with black shadows, drawing a thin line. It works well if you bring the black shade up a little so that it is distributed under the brown shadows.

Additional recommendations:

  • To make the makeup as natural as possible, first select the appropriate shadows. For example, you can give preference to a honey shade. They should be applied after the line is outlined with a pencil.
  • To make the “birdie” more spectacular, paint over the upper eyelid with shadows with a smoky shade.
  • Highlight makeup will help shadows with expressive colors, which are lighter than the drawn “tail” itself.
  • Always apply light-colored shadows under the eyebrow.
  • In no case do not go beyond the eyebrow line, so as not to spoil the whole image.

It is not recommended to use a make-up in an office style, it may seem strict and vulgar!
