“When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our eyes often say more than our words. People who avoid eye contact during conversation are often perceived as disingenuous, dishonest, or untrustworthy. Looking directly into the eyes of the person to whom you are talking sends a message of confidence and straightforwardness. Frequent blinking creates an impression that the speaker is nervous or uncomfortable, possibly because they are lying.
The appearance of your eyes speaks volumes. Here are five tips for accentuating the natural beauty of your eyes:
- To make your eyes appear larger, apply a white accent to the inside corners, by your tear ducts.
- For more noticeability, draw your eyeliner from the inside corner of your eye, but stop halfway across the length of your eye.
- When applying eye shadow, put light highlights up by your eyebrows with a light pink, white or cream.
- Create a small wing at the outside corners of your eyes to accentuate your features. Don’t overdo it, however, if you’re not going for the Cleopatra effect.
- Once your first application of mascara is dried, brush the tips of your lashes with your brush pointed towards the ceiling to make them appear longer.
Your appearance sends a powerful message about your personality. To learn more about creating the image that you feel best portrays yourself and others, contact a Utah beauty school today.
