5 Ways to Apply Eyeshadow

The most highly pigmented eye shadow is typically loose powder, but these are also the most difficult to control because of their, well, loose form. Cream shadows are easy to apply, but crease more quickly than powder eye shadows.

Although you don’t need to have dozens of colors but to be an eye shadow artist, it is recommended that you have at least three shades of eye shadow in the same color palette. Several different looks require a light, medium, and dark eye shadow. If you don’t want to look overdone with your eye shadow, choose three shades that are in neutral tones, such as brown or grey. Otherwise, choose any colors that might appeal to you and your style. So, today we will tell your about 5 Ways to Apply Eyeshadow.

Select the Right Brushes:

Although you can indeed apply your eye shadow using your fingertips. Invest in a few good makeup brushes for the easiest and most attractive eye shadow application. Avoid using sponge brushes for your eye shadow, as these do not apply the pigment well at all. Use a stiff flat brush to apply eye shadow to your entire lid. A soft or stiff dome brush is used for applying eye shadow to your crease and blending it outwards.

How to Apply your Eye Shadow?

One of the most important aspects of applying your eye shadow is using the correct brush strokes and speed. Rushing through your makeup or using the wrong brush strokes will create a messy, unattractive eye shadow application. Instead of sweeping your eye shadow back and forth across your eye in a fast motion. Unless you are using a highlighter color, you should never apply your eye shadow all the way up to your eyebrows.

Apply your Normal Face Makeup:

Doing your eye makeup should be the last step in your makeup application process, so put on your regular makeup first. Apply your concealer, foundation, blush or bronzer, and brow liner before making your way to your eye shadow.

Apply your Lightest Color:

Normally called a highlighter shade, this is typically a creamy nude eye shadow. Use your stiff flat brush to put this on the inner corners of your eyes, sweeping it up and down to gather just slightly on the upper and lower lash line. Apply a light sweep of it as well just below your eyebrows.

Blend your Eye Shadows:

Clean your dome brush with antibacterial brush cleaner or soap and water, and dry it on a clean towel. Use your clean brush to blend along the edges of your shadow so that they fade nicely into your skin tone, as well as along your eyelid so that your three colors blend together. Use soft, sweeping brush strokes to blend the shadows.
