Gorgeous eyeshadow looks to try yourself
What are the steps to achieving perfect eyeshadow looks?
There are a few steps that you need to follow in order to achieve the perfect look. There are also a few tools that you are going to need. For people who are really into makeup, makeup brushes are the perfect tool. For beginners, Q-tips work wonders. What’s more, you can even use your finger for application. The good news is that most eyeshadow palettes come with their own brushes, so you can definitely put them to good use.
How to apply eyeshadow?
Now, let’s focus on the actual process of applying eyeshadow. Trust us, it is not as difficult as it might seem.
- Apply primer to your lid. Don’t overlook this step. There are lots of good quality primers, which are pretty affordable. Primers make sure that your makeup stays on the whole day. Which is definitely important if you are a busy bee and are always on the move in the big city. Running from meeting to meeting on a hot summer day will definitely ruin your makeup. Not if you use primer, though.
- Use a natural color for base. Most color palettes go from lightest to darkest color with some pretty nude colors in between. Use the one matching your skin the most and apply it on your eye lid up to the crease. This will provide the base for your eyeshadow. Naturally, if you are going for an edgier, or darker look, you can use a darker tone for base. However, if you are applying an every day makeup, then nude color is your best option.

3. Use a darker color for your crease. Add a definition to your eye by blending a darker shade with the base. Start from your crease with a thin line expanding to a thicker line all the way to the end of the crease.
4. Highlight above the crease. Use a lighter color to highlight your eye. Apply it above the crease up to the brow bone. Make sure you blend the colors together, so they seamlessly flow together.
5. Apply the lightest color to the corner of your eye. This is every makeup artist’s secret, applying the lightest color of a palette to the corner of your eye. This opens up the eye and makes it appear bigger. The easiest thing to do is use your pinkie finger and press it to the corner of your eye.
