How to/Tips For Applying Eyeshadow

“How to apply eyeshadow” is a term searched too many times to count. How many hits, you may ask? 5,060,000. And for a good reason. This beauty product can truly change the way one looks. And for a day, that can be quite nice. But how exactly does one get this fascinating beauty product on? 

Step 1: Primer 

To create a creaseless look, using eyeshadow primer is a must. Dab an EXTREMELY SMALL amount on to one of your pointer fingers. Rub your two pointer fingers together, making sure to get an even amount on each finger. Leave one eye open and the other one closed while lightly, gently dragging the primer across its lid, brow bone, and crease. I recommend Urban Decay (expensive but high quality).

The model’s mascara is very poorly done.

Found at: Sephora

Tip: Give the primer about five seconds to dry before adding eyeshadow.

Step 2: Picking Colors

Dust a lighter hue allover your lid, crease, and brow bone. For a more dramatic look, add a darker, complimentary color to the crease. Example: Allover light mint green, dark green OR dark purple crease. For a smokey/three channel look, dust or apply the middle color with your finger to your lids. The darkest color should be within your creases. I personally recommend using powder for this. To complete the look, dust or apply the lightest color with your finger to your brow bones. This takes practice, so don’t stress if you don’t get it right away! 

Step 3: Apply Eyeshadow With…

Use a soft brush to apply power eyeshadow, whereas you should be applying cream eyeshadow with your fingers. A small angle brush (loosely or tightly packed bristles) works best for powder creases.

This is the one I use. It’s super easy to work with.

Step 4: Blend!!!

Simply make divisions between pigments more smooth with a medium-sized, soft brush. Take your time!!!!

XOXO,
