Bring Those Eyes To Life With Eye-Shadow
Whether you’re a makeup pro or beginner, you need an eye-shadow palette in your makeup kit. Do you like bright and shiny colors or dark and shadowy? Well now is the time to express all your different moods with your eye-shadow. Switching up your eye makeup is the best way to transform your look. With the perfect eye-shadow palette, you can express your eyes with more depth.
Below is a quick guide on how to get the natural daytime look or fiery night out eye-shadow. Before you begin with your eye-shadow, start by priming your eyes. If you do not have an eyelid primer, go for your face primer or concealer, to start off with a smooth base and cancel out any redness. You can then set the base with powder, setting powder or a light beige shade from your palette.
With all that done now, let’s get started!
- To create a warm, nude and shimmery look use a nude eye-shadow palette. For a more dramatic look, go for a palette with darker colors to pull it off.
- Take a fluffy brush and apply a changing shade to your crease. Depending on the final look you want, the shade can be ochre, mauve, soft pink or a light brown. Use circular motions to blend the shade in your crease perfectly.
- Next step, choose a shimmery shade from your palette and apply it all over your eyelid. For the shimmers to look more pigmented use your finger to apply it.
- With a small brush, take a darker shade and apply it to the outer eye corner to increase your makeup intensity. Blend this color with your crease and eyelid shade for a perfect transition.
- You can finish it off by using liquid eyeliner on your lash line and eye-pencil on your waterline with mascara for long curly lashes.
If you are a beginner when applying makeup, we recommend you start your eye makeup first before moving on to foundation and the rest of your makeup. This will help you correct your mistakes easily and dust away excess eye-shadow. To complete your makeup look, apply some blush and lipstick which complements your eye makeup. Avoid using dark makeup and dark lipstick because you will end up looking gaudy. If you apply dark eye-shadow go for a soft light gloss for your lips and if you have light eye-shadow go for dark lipstick.
