If you loved makeup, but you are not a pro, don't worry; you are not alone. I found myself making many mistakes, especially eyeshadow. Fortunately, later I understood that applying eyeshadows is more straightforward than what most of us think!
Knowing that, I've gathered together a few simple tips for you that will forever transform the way you use eyeshadows. Are you ready? Let's begin.
1. Do Apply A Primer
It is essential to begin applying a primer to the eyes. A primer prepares the skin so that you can use the eyeshadow smoothly.
A great option is INNISFREE No Sebum Blur Primer, which works at smoothing and perfecting your skin. It provides all-day wear and assists in helping your makeup last for hours.
You can also use a concealer on your eyes for the same purpose. Please note that a concealer is terrific if your skin is uneven and oily. Besides, the concealer fills in the lines or wrinkles, making you look younger. Apply the concealer in a circular motion to create a more natural look.
Our favorite concealer is THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28, a liquid concealer that provides perfect coverage. It covers small flaw areas leaving the skin-tone even.
Keep in mind that if you have dehydrated skin, do not use primer, as it can create more fine lines. You can try using a moisturiser such as INNISFREE Jeju Orchid Eye Cream on your eyes to hydrate the skin.
2. Don't Choose Colours That Don't Match
The main purpose of using eyeshadow is to give the eyes a third dimension. That's why it is crucial to choose and match texture and colour eyeshadow.
Please note that deep colours must be combined with light colours. Using deep and light eyeshadows at the same time, add the three-dimension effect in the eyes. For a bolder look, you can mix three colours.
Use bright colours if you want your eyes to look clear.
Remember never to bottom the eyes with deep colour or use colours that don't match your skin tone.
Avoid applying a thick coat, as it will make you look unnatural. It is best if you blend the line between deep and light colour to create a deep sense.
Try MISSHA Triple Shadow, as it is the easiest way to have complementary shades that create a distinctive look.
The MISSHA Triple Shadow is a compact eyeshadow that allows you to easily and quickly achieve a natural gradient, just like a professional would. You can use the colours separately or together for different makeup looks.
3. Do Use A Lighter Colour On Your Lower Lash Line
It is best to use a lighter colour on your lower lash line. Using a dark line of shadow on the lower lash line creates a rugged look. Select for a more golden colour than the one you are using on the upper lids.
Doing this will help your eyes to balance, making them look bigger and brighter.
Keep in mind that you don't want to use a fluffy brush for applying your lid colour. Choose a density pack brush to cover the shadow on a specified area.
4. Don't Use Shining Eyeshadows
Glitter eyeshadows such as PERIPERA Sugar Twinkle Liquid Shadow are fantastic for highlighting your brow bone with soft sparkles as it catches the light. But if you have profound wrinkles in your eyelids, don't apply them or use them in moderation.
Choose a colour that contrasts with your pupils. For instance, red wine colours match green eyes very much. You can try ETUDE HOUSE Play Color Eyes Wine Party, which features terrific colour shades from browns to golds, to nudes and rose reds.
The main goal of eyeshadow makeup is to combine different colours and create a charming and attractive appearance.
5. Do Pick The Right Brush
Blending is an essential part of the process, and picking the right brush is vital. Choose a fluffy brush for blending. Try to hold the brush towards its handle and glide it across your eyelids to create an airbrush effect.
Avoid using a dense round brush.
Remember to be gentle in your use of the brush as you don't want to hurt your eyes. If you want the look to be smooth and airy, avoid using too many strokes and never apply too much pressure on your skin.
