Many women think that eyeshadow is complicated, but the truth is that just a few simple steps are all you need to master. With this guide, you’ll be applying eyeshadow like a pro!
- Try a single shade
This tip is especially great for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning: just pick one neutral shade and apply it all over the lid. This gives your eyes a little bit of definition and can make you look more awake.
- Use your fingers
If you don’t have makeup brushes – or even if you do – using your fingertips to apply eyeshadow gives you the freedom to blend eyeshadow colors in a way that looks more natural and spontaneous.
- Draw a line
In a pinch, eyeshadow can double as eyeliner. Simply dampen a small angled brush and draw it through your shadow, then apply to the upper lash line the same way you would with a regular eyeliner.
- Play with highlighters
Eyeshadow palettes usually contain a light color and, depending on the size of the palette, anywhere from two to five darker shades. The lightest color is generally used as a highlighter; apply it along your brow bone and on the inner corner of the eye to make your eyes brighter.
- Get Smokey
You only need three shades for a smokey eye: a light, medium, and dark color. Apply the lightest color on your brow bone, the medium color on your lid, and the dark color as an eyeliner along your lash line.
