The Complete Guide On How To Get That Perfect Eyeshadow Blend
So, you’re ready to try something a little more adventurous with your eyeshadow?
The best thing about eyeshadow is that once you learn and truly understand the basics and the lingo, you’re free to truly have fun and start trying new techniques and shades.
We should all feel confident about how we apply our eye makeup; that’s why in this blog we’re going to look at how to apply eyeshadow perfectly.
Always Start With Cream
Powder eyeshadow can really take the life out of the skin around your eyes, collecting in hard to reach places and becoming uneven the more you try to fix it. By using an eye primer or cream shadow to create a base, powder can be lightly added on top and blended more easily.
Make Your Colours Pop
Ever bought an eyeshadow palette that looked great in the case, but failed to live up to its expectations when applied? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Luckily, there is a way to remedy this, you can increase the vibrancy of your chosen shade by again, using a base on your lid.
Test Your Colours First
While there are some people who can instantly visualise shades from a palette that go together, it’s not as easy for others. A good way to check whether certain colours work together is to put them on the back of your hand first and try blending them with your finger – this way you can also see whether the shade of eyeshadow compliments your skin tone.
Deepen The Pigment
A great tip from the pros that can really make your eyeshadow palette seem like a great deal is to deepen each pigment by lightly spraying your product-holding brush with water mist or a setting spray. The addition of water to the eyeshadow will instantly deepen the colour, although it is important to mention that once it has dried you will no longer be able to blend, so make sure you work fast!
There really are no limits to what can be achieved with eyeshadow if you have the creativity and motivation to try. And don’t forget, you can always look online to learn which colours are in this season for inspiration.
