How To Apply Eyeshadow
Do you want to know how to apply eye shadow? Eyes are one of the first features people notice when you talk to them, which is why it’s important to keep them looking their best. Eye shadow is available to better enhance the natural beauty of your eyes.
Before you apply eye shadow, you’ll first need to purchase a few basic supplies, such as a mirror, foundation, concealer, eye shadow and powder brush. You don’t have to go out and buy the expensive stuff, as it’s usually over-priced. Instead, save some money by purchasing some of the cheaper stuff to try out. Oftentimes, you’ll find the cheaper stuff works better than the more expensive makeup products.
Eye shadow comes in many different forms, such as creams, powders and liners. If you’re new to applying eyeshadow, I recommend starting with a powder which can be applied by hand. When choosing a colour, try to find one that’s either going to compliment your natural skin tone and facial features, or a colour that will match your outfit. Ultimately, the colour of eyeshadow you choose is a personal decision, but just remember to not go overboard with your colour.
The first step to applying eyeshadow is to lay a base foundation down over your eyes. Gently apply the foundation to each eye while they’re closed. Smooth it out by massaging it into your skin until you’re unable to notice it. Once you’ve done both eyes, use the concealer to help cover up any wrinkles, pimples or blemishes around your face and eyes.
After you’ve laid a solid foundation base, start applying the eyeshadow to your eyes. While many of the powders come with brushes, I recommend using your fingers to help warm up the makeup and prepare it for your skin. Simply take a small portion on the tip of your index finger and rub it on each of your eyelids. It may take several coats before it reaches your desired brightness or colour. Some people prefer different shades of colours on their eyes, and while it create a beautifully unique appearance, it may take some trial and error before you get the hang of it.
Once you’re finished applying the eyeshadow, you should give a little TLC to your eyelashes. If you neglect your eyelashes, it can really throw off the whole look of your eyeshadow. You’ll want to use an eyeliner which either matches or contrasts with the colour of your eyeshadow. Only then will your makeup have a flowing and cohesive look to it.
If you’re going out at night, you may want to consider the use of a shimmery eyeshadow. This is a type of eyeshadow which contains tiny glitter particles to create sparkly effect. When light hit it, the reflection really draws attention to your eyes, which is the purpose of eyeshadow.
Applying eyeshadow isn’t a long or difficult process, but it does require basic knowledge. Follow the tips here and to be on your way to having eyes that look like they’ve been done by a professional makeup artist.
