The Best Eyeshadow Palette For Every Eye Colour

Your eyes have the power to take your beauty to another level. But knowing which eyeshadow palette to choose can be a little bit difficult. After all, you do not want to end up looking ready for a Halloween party rather than for work. Well, do not worry as we are going to show you how to apply eyeshadows like a pro.

How To Apply Eyeshadow

Eyeshadow is perfect to create depth and dimension to your eyes. The most important thing is to blend the colours well.

Step 1: Apply Eyeshadow Primer

The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

Using an eyeshadow primer will help your eye makeup to last longer. If you don’t have an eyeshadow primer you can also use a concealer such as The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer. Apply the concealer and then use a translucent powder like Innisfree’s No Sebum Mineral Powder to create your eyeshadow primer. Just be careful to avoid the powder to enter your eyes.

You will need a nude shadow to apply as a base. Choose a nude eyeshadow that complements your skin tone. Etude House Look At My Eyes New has a huge variety of colours where you can find the perfect tone to blend it in thoroughly.

Before applying colour make sure to apply a medium-brown toned eyeshadow to your crease. A great option is Chocolate Brown from Missha Triple Shadow. To give more depth to your eyes make sure to contour your eyes with a darker shade of eyeshadow.

Step 5: Define Your Lower Lash Line

To achieve the perfect eye makeup, you need to use a pencil eyeliner to define your lower lash line.

4 Tips To Make Your Eyeshadow Brighter

White Eye Pencil

White eye pencils are great if you don’t have an eye primer. They are usually made with a creamy formula helping the eyeshadow stick firmly onto them. Besides, they enhance the colour intensity of the eyeshadows as they can erase eyelid pigmentation. Cover your entire eyelid with the white eye pencil.

Black Eye Pencil

Black eye pencil works effectively to pop out the eyeshadow bright colours. If you use green, bronze, maroon, red, blue, and purple eyeshadow colours you need to use Deep Black from Macqueen Waterproof Pen Eyeliner as they work fantastically together.

A simple tip to make your eyeshadows brighter is to layer your eyeshadows twice. When you do this, you will see how your eyes instantly pop out.

Damp Your Brush

A great tip to make your eyeshadows brighter is to wet your eyeshadow brush. Before applying your eyeshadow make sure to remove excess water as it will make your eyeshadows run from your eyelids. The key is to have the brush slightly damp to pick the product up and pat it on your eyelid. Believe us you will see your eyes brighter immediately.
