Eyes on You: Tips and Tricks for Applying Eyeshadow


Use an Eyeshadow Primer

Using an eyeshadow primer will create a smooth canvas for your eyeshadow and help it remain longer without creasing or fading.


Choose the Right Brushes

Invest in high-quality eyeshadow brushes developed for specific uses. A fluffy blending brush is required for smooth blending.


Start with Transition Shades

Apply a transition shade just above your natural crease. This color should be a couple shades darker than your skin tone to add depth and character.


Build and Blend

Gradually layer your eyeshadow colors, beginning with lighter tones and progressing to darker shades. For a smooth transition between hues, firmly blend each color.


Focus on the Outer V

Apply a slightly darker hue to the outer corner of your eye in a "V" shape to add depth and definition. To avoid any hard lines, blend it thoroughly.


Highlight the Inner Corner

To make your eyes appear brighter and more alert, apply a sparkly or light hue to the inner corner of your eyes.


Define the Lower Lash Line

Apply eyeshadow or eyeliner to your lower lash line with a small angled brush or a smudge brush. This will improve the overall appearance of the eyes and establish balance.


Experiment with Different Finishes

Don't be afraid to experiment with various finishes, such as matte, shimmer, or metallic, to create a variety of eye-catching appearances.


Practice Makes Perfect

Eyeshadow application requires practice, so don't be disappointed if your first tries don't come out as intended.
