Every basic makeup kit cannot be complete without a set of eyeshadows. This beauty product is one of the only items that can give your eyes the emotion and drama you want to achieve. Yes, it is true that professionals do use tones that can be found even between the colors of the rainbow, but beginners may start with shades that match and/or compliment their skin tone. The eyes are known to be one of the most difficult parts to apply makeup on because not only are you allowed to work in such a small space, but sometimes your eyes cannot seem to sit still. Those who are unfamiliar with the ways of the eyeshadow may want to follow these simple tips:
Do not be afraid of the eyeshadow’s color palette. Instead, have fun and experiment with it. Naturally, three colors of eyeshadows (that share similar shades) is enough to complete the basic look, but if you are planning to create bold new looks, choose colors that are not found in your comfort zone.
Although using your fingertips is acceptable, it is always better to use the prescribed brush. It will even out the color on your eyes and it is soft to the touch. Also, with the variety of brushes available, you can use different strokes to create different effects.
Applying makeup on the eyes is always the last step. So, if you are planning to use your eyeshadows, apply your regular makeup first. Always apply your mascara after you are done putting on your eyeshadow, so that it won’t disrupt its appearance, and if you want your eyeshadow to last all day, use a shadow primer. By doing so you will prevent the oils from your skin from seeping through your hard work.
With the right combination of tones and matching clothes, you will be able to create limitless styles that can express your inner you.
