Eyeshadow Tricks

Honestly, whenever I attempt putting eye shadows on me, it would always be the ordinary two-color thingy!...nothing extra ordinary or so. I just match colors that are either of the same type with the other one lighter and the other darker in shade.

But thanks for the reads I got because of the tips. I didn't even know I can actually use 4 eyeshadow colors on my eyes! :)

Here are the tips:

Using a Single Eyeshadow:
  • Try creating smoky eyes with one shade by blending it on the lid and along the lower lash line. You might wanna try using a sheer neutral from lid to brow bone for a softer effect.
  • Try adding water if you prefer to have a vibrant liner instantly. Dampen it with a small angled brush, then drag through color and trace along upper lashes.

Using a Double Eyeshadow:

  • Choose the lighter color as the base; wahs it over the lid, on inner corner and along the bottom lashes.
  • Work on the darker shade into the top lash line and crease. Blend it all together using tight circular motions with a contour brush.

Using a Triple Eyeshadow:

  • Apply the lightest shade all over from the brow bone down just like when you do the double eyeshadow.
  • Use the medium shade because that would be your safest color. Apply it in the crease using a back and forth windshield-wiper motion, then smudge the darkest shade around the lash line. Create a sideways "V" on the outer corner for a more intensifying look.

Using a 4 Color Eyeshadow:

  • First do the same steps as the triple process mentioned above.
  • Add the accent shade to the inner corner lid, brow bone or lower lashes. If you're overwhelmed by layering it all on, take it easy one day at a time. Using each color separately and gradually combining colors take the pressure off. Possibilities are always endless!
