Eyeshadow can be a pretty intimidating. You don’t want to put it on two dark, you don’t want to put it on so light that you cannot tell you’re even wearing any, and you don’t want to fail at shading that smoky eye just right! Here are a few tips from the eyeshadow pros to help my eyeshadow-challenged ladies.
- Know your eye shape: Learning how to shade eyeshadow is so much easier when you know your eye shape. It helps you figure out what color goes where!
- Know your eyeshadow brushes: Know your tools! There are brushes that are better for blending, ones that are more for base colors, and many more! Know what they are and how to use them.
- Know your preferred formula: There are three main eyeshadow formulas: cream, loose, and pressed. Cream eyeshadows work best as a base layer color for powder eyeshadow, loose eyeshadows are best if you want a pigmented color, and pressed is the most common type of eyeshadow because they blend easily and aren’t that messy.
- Priming is important!: Using eyeshadow primer is super important. It keeps it from creasing or wearing off as the day goes on. It will also make your eyeshadow colors look brighter!
Eyeshadow is so much fun to experiment with! Hopefully these tips help you make the most of your makeup.
