Eye shadows - Tips for Applying Eyeshadows
Eye shadows are certainly eye catching. Eyeshadow brings out the colour of your eyes. It also enhances their natural shape. Using eye liner and eye pencils can highlight the sparkle in your eyes. If you have small eyes and want to give the impression of larger eyes, you want to stay with lighter shades.
Eyeshadows add a depth to the eyes of a woman and its right application can make the eyes look smaller, bigger, set closely together or set apart. All we need is to choose the right color and shade and know how to apply it perfectly. You normally wear two to three different colors on the eye. A medium color on the lid, a darker color in the crease and the lightest to highlight the brow bone and lighten the inner corner of the eye.
Some tips for eyeshadows:
- The first step of applying eyeshadow is to apply a light color over your entire eye lid from lash line to brow.
- Pick colors that compliment your eye color. You can try the trendy colors every once in a while.
- For fair colour skin, the pink shadow remain good.
- Darker skin and brunette or black hair looks good with mauve or grey eyeshadow.
- The brown eyeshadow suits almost everyone. If you are not sure what colours to use, just do light brown and maybe blend a touch of dark brown.
- To prevent shadow from creasing, put foundation on your lids first, then powder.
- Apply a medium shadow color on your lower lid from lash line to the crease of your eye. Use a fluff brush.
How to apply eyeshadow:
- Select a light color base shadow. Sweep the shadow brush across your entire lid, from brow to lash line.
- To cover your lower lids, try to use a medium-toned shade.
- Firstly start at the inside edge of your upper lid. Angle the brush so that the longest tip follows the shorter end as the brush moves across your lash line.
- Using a light white shadow, sweep this color directly under the brows from the middle of the eye outwards.
- The lighter shadows help the bigger while darker shades make them look smaller.
- Stroke the brush over the eye shadow.
- Where the two shades meet, blend, blend, blend, for a soft, natural-looking line.
- Use a cosmetic puff and a little pressed powder to tone down heavy shadow. Shake any excess powder off the puff, then press it gently over the lid.
