With all the beauty influencers, YouTubers, and 13-year-olds who could pass for 20-year-olds out there, it’s easy to feel like you’re the only one in the world who can’t do makeup like a pro. But don’t believe the lies you tell yourself! Anyone (yes, even you) can be good at doing their own beat with a few makeup tips and a little guidance. Whether you’re looking to tackle the cat eye or finally figure out how to contour and highlight,

I’ve got 9 must-try makeup tips for you below. So grab your makeup bag and that one product (err, products?) you never learned how to use, and keep scrolling.

1. Primer

Now’s the time to make use of that tube of primer that you got talked into buying but never really used. Primer is the secret of flawless makeup, apply it over your eyelids to keep the eye shadow in place and you can even apply it to your eyelashes. A good hack to remember is that a primer can also be used to clean up mistakes!

2. Conceal

Now that we’re getting older we can’t help but notice the slightly darkening areas around our eye sockets. The solution? Concealer! Choose a shade or two lighter than your normal skin tone and apply concealer with your fingertips to dab on the inner corners of the eyes for example as these tend to darken first.

3. Choose the right eyeshadow colors

Perhaps the most important step is choosing eyeshadow colors that compliment your coloring. “All you need to do is choose colors that opposite to your eye color on the color wheel,” beauty guru Lauren Curtis says. For blue eyes that means bronze and copper colors, while for green, hazel and brown eyes it’s best to use colors in the purple and taupe range. It’s also important to pay attention to skin tone when choosing shadow colors. The darker your skin tone, the warmer your eyeshadow should be.

4. Don’t skip eyeliner

Apply a gel, pencil, or liquid liner on your top lash line. If you have light eyes, go with a brown eyeliner, while brown eyes will pop with black liner. Work the liner into the lash line as close to your eyelashes as you can. For a smokier look, apply a brown or black eyeshadow onto your lower lash line with a small eyeshadow brush. Just make sure the top and bottom eyeliner meet at the outer corner of your eye.

5. Lower Lids

Though many makeup artists start to avoid applying liner to lower lashes but in fact lining the lower lashes does open up the eyes. Line the lower lid just under the lashes and soften the look with your pinky. Or you could dip a small brush in the darkest eye shadow color in your palette and draw a line under your eye. This helps you create a naturally smudgy look that looks great.

6. Know Your Colors

Applying the right shade that matches your coloring does wonders for you. Brown eyes look great in all colors, green eyes look best with a bit of purple, while blue eyes pop with earth tones. Find out your best match and experiment till you get it right.

7. Warm Up Your Eyelash Curler

As we get older it becomes a must to use an eyelash curler. For best results warm up your lashes using a blow dryer for a few seconds, feel it so it’s not too hot for your eye, and then curl.

8. Lengthening Mascara

Choose lengthening mascaras instead of volumizing. You need length and not bulk to counteract the effects of eyes that have unfortunately begun to sunk in. Start applying the mascara at the roots wiggling the wand back and forth so you get as much as you can on the base of your lashes. Apply your second and third coats while the lashes are still wet with mascara. On the lower lashes, simply dab the mascara wand on the lashes for some added definition.

9. Don’t Forget Your Eyebrows

The eyebrows will frame your eyes and if you wear glasses then all the more reason to pay attention to your brows. Fill in any sparse areas with a shadow or a thin pencil using short feathered strokes. You just need to fake the appearance of more eyebrow hair.

The Shakespearean adage that "eyes are the window to the soul" and the '80s banger "Hungry Eyes" are just two of the innumerable cultural references to eyes. So, regardless of your age, you should feel great about expressing yourself through makeup, especially when it comes to amping up your mesmerizing gaze.
