How to Create Flirty Eyes

by Fashion, Style & Personal Care Editor

Eyes are a woman's greatest tool when flirting. A suggestive look can make the person who's the object of your affection melt instantly when done correctly. A quick application of the right eyeliner and mascara can create flirty eyes almost instantly. Create flirty eyes with a combination of eye make-up and a sassy attitude.

Items you will need

  • Dark eyeliner
  • Neutral eye shadow
  • Matching, dark eye shadow
  • Small eye-shadow brush
  • Black mascara
  • Eyelash curler
  • Faux eyelashes

Brush neutral or skin-tone eye shadow across your entire eyelid. Covering the eyelid completely creates a base that can prevent eyeliner from smudging.

Curl your eyelashes to open up your eyes and create a more dynamic look. Use an eyelash curler at the root of your lashes and press gently for 5 to 10 seconds.

Apply eyeliner. Choose a dark, smoky color. Pull your eyelid taut from the outside corner. Using an eyeliner pencil or liquid eyeliner, trace the lid as close to the base of your eyelashes as possible. Use an upturned stroke when you reach the outer corner of the eye to create a catlike and flirtatious flare. Lightly line the lid along the bottom lash line as well, again pulling the skin taut.

Brush matching eye shadow over the eyeliner. Make the look extra flirty by choosing a matching eye shadow that includes sparkling or shimmering bits that catch the light.

Apply rich black mascara to your eyelashes. Apply a second coat immediately after the first, without allowing it to dry. Use a lash comb to separate lashes for a full look.

Perfect your flirty eyes with faux lashes to thicken and define your eyes. Bat your perfectly mascaraed lashes and draw attention to the fabulous make-up.
