Check out our 5 tips below:
1) Eye Primer First!
Whenever you are applying any eye makeup, whether it is a simple eyeliner or you want to greatly accentuate your eyes using eye-shadow, eye primer is a fundamental step. It prevents the eye makeup from fading or melting even if you spend many hours outside, day or night.
2) Conceal Your Dark Circles
In order to even out your dark circles, choose a concealer shade that is mildly lighter and warmer than your natural skin tone. Apart from making your eyes to appear more relaxed, such a shade also helps to make your eye makeup more visible.
3) Apply the First Layer of Your Eyeshadow
The color that you choose should go well with both your skin tone and your eye color. Have both a lighter and a darker shade of that color. For instance, if pink color is your choice, pick a light shade of pink as well as a very dark shade of the same color.
4) Blend in Your Light Eyeshadow
Apply the light eyeshadow all over your eye lids and subtly under your eyes.
5) Lastly, Finish off with the Dark Eyeshadow
Once you have applied the light shade of your eyeshadow, then apply the dark shade on the outer corners of your eyes. This last step is very important when it comes to mastering the process of accentuating your eyes using eyeshadow. Here, you will require a small eyeshadow brush with edgy hairs in order to be able to apply the dark eyeshadow shade in a straight line both on the upper and the bottom lids of your eyes. Next, you apply a thin faded line of the same dark shade at the deep parts of your eye lids.
Finally, remember to apply mascara because long eye lashes are key to the beauty of your eyes.
