Sexy Carnival eye make-up

Creating sexy eyes with eyeliner and eye shadow can have an explosive appeal if done with the right amount. Follow these tips for a hot Carnival look.

1. Get a felt tip or liquid liner and while looking in the mirror, tilt your head back slightly and start the line from the middle of the upper lash line and extend out, then start at the inner eye corner and carry the liner out to the middle. Doing this in small areas almost guarantees a better finish until you get the hang of it.

2. If you messed up, don't go erasing everything, get a product like "dot the eyes" which is a cotton swab that's filled with gentle eye make-up remover. You can lightly remove the liner that has gone out of the area that you intended without having to start over.

3. Finally, if you are going to add eye shadows, be sure to use tones that complement your pigment to get the best results with this look.

For fair skin tones, use shades like champagne or shimmery lavender.

For medium skin tones, use copper, metallic bronze or rust shades.

For dark skin tones, use chocolate brown shimmer, or deep purple.

Most everyone can use cobalt, turquoise and peach. Mix it up sometimes and have fun playing up what some call their greatest assets.
