How To Fix Those Eyeshadow Mistakes
First of all, don’t panic. There’s always a way to fix things.
From fall out to accidental slips – there are a countless amount of possible mistakes to be made when applying Eyeshadow. But how do you go about fixing mistakes that keep cropping up and driving you insane?
In this blog we’re going to look at how to fix the most common eyeshadow mistakes.
Have You Forgotten To Prime?
Your eye makeup needs something to hold onto when it is applied, this is where Eyeshadow primer always comes in handy. When you are in a rush, it can be easy to forget to apply primer, but if you want to avoid smears and smudges throughout the day, it’s worth taking that extra minute or two.
Do You Apply Eyeshadow Before Your Foundation?
As mentioned in our blog about eyeshadow tips for beginners, it’s always a good idea to apply your eyeshadow prior to your foundation. This is because when you apply eyeshadow, it is common that there will be fall out beneath your eyes that can be incredibly difficult to remove from your foundation. By doing your eye makeup beforehand, you can wipe the Eyeshadow away without ruining your base.
Make Sure You Use Cream First
Think of it as a two-part adhesive. The cream should be blended into the area where you are planning to add powder, and the powder itself adheres to the cream and sets it in place. If you try to do it the other way around, it can end up looking patchy and you will undoubtedly want to redo it.
My Eyeshadow Looks Lifeless
While most people only use highlighter to emphasise their facial bone structure, they also work wonders when your eyeshadow is looking flat and lifeless. Next time you get a bit worried, try adding a little highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes, and possibly even to the brow bone. This will help your eyes seem larger and your eyeshadow more visceral.
