Your eyes are easily one of your best features. So, it’s great to draw attention to them, especially in photos. And it’s super easy for you to make them stand out and make them the center of attention. There are loads of makeup tips and tricks using eyeliner and eyeshadow to compliment the color and shape of your eyes.

But one of the easiest ways to make your eyes stand out in pictures is to give them a quick touch-up using Facetune2. Using Facetune2, you can add all sorts of makeup, including eyeshadow and eyeliner, to make your eyes pop and nail alllll the half-faced selfies.

It’s super easy and straightforward, and with a few basic eye photography tips you can make your eyes look amazing. So, if you haven’t got the hang of the perfect cat eye just yet, give it go digitally first. You can work out which looks suit you without applying and then reapplying a ton of actual eyeliner.

Step 1: Pick your favorite selfie or take a new one using our Facetune2 selfie editor app. With the picture open in the app, pinch your fingers together to zoom in on your eyes. The closer in you are, the more detailed you can be with your liner.

Step 2: Scroll along the bottom bar until you find the Paint function.

Step 3: Here, use the color selecting bar on the right side to choose which color eyeliner you want. Then, gently brush one finger over the area you want to color. A dark color can make for a great classic look, but you can also use bright colors for a fresh, fun style.

Step 4: If you are already wearing eyeliner and just want to touch it up, use the Picker tool to match the perfect shade.

Remember that the more closely you can zoom in and the lighter you can be with your fingers, the more control you have over where your new lashes will be. Because some of the smoothing and lighting functions can blur imperfections and add different shadows, it’s best to add your lashes before you edit the rest of your face.

So even though you might not be able to book a lash appointment, you can still get long, fluttery lashes in every single photo. Facetunes makes it really quick and simple, so you can go all out with digital falsies or keep it really natural.
