Tips for Beautiful Eye Makeup

It takes dedication, hard work, and a TON of practice to perfect your eyeshadow game. But if you get it perfect, those years of effort will be well worth it – your eyes will appear larger, lifted, and more young – people will be unable to take their gaze away from YOU! So, to assist you on your journey from novice to pro (or even certified eyeshadow expert), we’ve created a definitive list of eyeshadow tips. Everything you need to know is as follows:

1. Prepare and Prime Your Eyeshadow

Before grabbing your blending brush, prime and prep your lid to ensure that a) the pigment pops, b) the colour is beautifully even, and c) it lasts all day. Here’s how it’s done:

Apply an eyeshadow primer: There are now a plethora of eyeshadow primers on the market that serve as the ideal canvas for eyeshadow application while also enhancing lasting power. The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is our favourite.

Bake your lids: If you have oily lids, your eyeshadow will settle into wrinkles and look spotty throughout the day. To avoid this, apply a little amount of setting powder to your eyelids after applying foundation.

Make that pigment pop: If you enjoy experimenting with colourful eyeshadows, apply a white base to your lid using a light-colored concealer or a white eyeshadow to ensure the colour looks as brilliant as it does in the pan. To prime the lids and guarantee maximum pigment payoff, we like to apply the Melted Shadows in Faux Fur.

2. Make your eyeshadow a priority.

Fall out is a common side effect of pigment payout, but it’s a tiny price to pay for vibrant colour! After dipping your brush into the pan, gently blot off any excess powder. The alternative option is to apply your eyeshadow first, then your complexion makeup, so that any fallout onto your cheekbones doesn’t mess up your cake face.

3. Understand Your Eye Shape

Knowing your eye shape is vital if you want to better your makeup game. While certain recommendations may work and look amazing on one eye form, they may be ineffective on another. For example, if you have hooded eyes (where your upper eyelid is heavy and rests over part of your lid), you should mix your shadows up and outwards to assist open up your eyes and make them appear wider.

If you have round eyes, blend outwards while highlighting below the brow bone and in the inner corners.

4. Consider your eye colour.

Finding makeup tints and colours that match your eye colour is an excellent approach to draw attention to your eyes. Check out our blue, brown, and green eye guidelines!

5.  Choose the appropriate tool

A decent beauty brush set will make a HUGE impact in your makeup skills, allowing you to blend more flawlessly and be more exact with your looks. Knowing which brushes to use also means knowing which brush to use for more strong pigment payoff and less fallout, as well as which brush is best for blending or intricate effects.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to spend a bunch; there are loads of wonderful drugstore brushes! We adore the Spectrum brushes, which come in a wide variety of sizes. We also adore the Real Techniques collection.

6. Improve your mixing skill

You must now polish your blending method now that you have the necessary tools. Here are our top recommendations:

Combine eyeshadows

Don’t be afraid to mix and combine eyeshadows on your brush to get a more cohesive, seamless appearance. To reduce fall-out, blot out any extra colour before applying it to your lids.

Pat and then blend: Use a thick brush to create a uniform foundation, then pack the product by gently pushing the powder onto the lid. Then, making back-and-forth motions.

7. Don’t overlook the lower lash line.

A small amount of eyeshadow on the outside lower lash line goes a long way. Use gentler tones, such as a soft brown, for an everyday look, and then go a shade darker for a more dramatic effect. Apply with a tiny dense brush and mix with a little bigger fluffier brush. Another fantastic suggestion is to use a beige eyeliner pencil (white might be too harsh) to tight line your lower lash line to help open up the eye.

8. Select Your Formula Wisely 

Pressed eyeshadows are the most basic and widely used recipe. They’re a terrific, no-mess choice. If you want a dewy sheen, cream shadows are ideal, but they can crease quickly, especially if you have oily lids. Loose shadows are normally sold in little pots, and while they will make you feel like a professional makeup artist, they are the messiest of the three.

9. Allow a Bold Eye to Shine

A smokey eyeshadow looks stunning on its own, but when combined with a dramatic lip, the two may overpower each other. Don’t be afraid to be daring, but make sure your entire design is balanced.

10. Using a setting spray, keep everything in place

Use a setting spray as your final step for your beautiful eyes to get the most out of your makeup. Spray away while holding the bottle at arm’s length from your face. The Urban Decay All-Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray is our favourite.
