Help to apply flawless eyeshadow
1. Start with the Perfect Eyeshadow Colors
Eyeshadow shades that match your eye color will enhance your eyes and make them appear bigger. Choose three shades of colors, but keep them light - darker colors can make your eyes actually appear smaller. If you are not sure what type of shades to choose, a consultation at a beauty salon may help you to find the most complimentary colors of eye makeup for your eyes.
2. Use the Right Types of Eyeshadow Brushes
It is best to buy three different types of brushes for your eye makeup applications. All brushes should have a flat half circle shape. The largest brush should have a soft tip, but the medium and smaller brushes need to have stiffer tips to help you control where the makeup is applied and how much of it is applied to the sensitive skin above your eyes.
3. Prime Before You Apply Eyeshadow
For a long lasting application of eyeshadow use a makeup primer made specifically for eye makeup applications. A primer is a silky smooth light liquid that will stop eye makeup from fading away by the end of the day. Even better, a primer will prevent the eye makeup from settling in the soft creases around your eyes.
4. Apply Eyeshadow Evenly
As you apply your eye makeup, take care to make sure that the application is even on each eye. Start by applying the lightest shade of makeup from the eyelash line to just under the brow with the largest and softest makeup brush. Next, use the medium sized brush to apply the medium shade to the eyelash line to the top of the eyelid. Lastly, use the smallest brush to apply a very subtle line of eye makeup just above the eyelashes.
5. Blend for a Flawless Finish
The last step is to use your large and soft eyeshadow brush, or a separate large and fluffy makeup brush, to gently blend the eyeshadow colors. Sweep the brush from the inside of the eye to the outside of the eye, and make sure you lightly brush the area from the lash line to the top of the brow. If you want to give your eyes a little pop, use the lightest shade of color and add just a tiny dab on the outside corner of each eye.
hope this help ;)
