Perfect Eyeshadow 😍

  • Eyeshadow 101

    The basic eyeshadow design is to shape and shade in well blended progression of light to dark colors. 

    Three key points to keep in mind:

    • Light colors will highlight or emphasize shallow areas.
    • Dark colors will recede or minimize fuller, more prominent areas.
    • Always load your brushes with a small amount of color since it is easier to add more eyeshadow than to remove it.

  • Two Color Design 
    • Use a large eyeshadow brush and apply lighter color to the base of the lashes and blend up to the brow.
    • Next, use a crease defining brush to apply the second shade in the crease, blending up and out toward the outer corner of the eye along the edge of where the brow bone begins.
    • Keeping the second color in and slightly above the crease will create a natural highlight under the brow’s arch while shading the outer corner of the eye.
    • For a softer, more diffused effect use a blending brush without any eyeshadow and blend using soft circular motions along the outer part of crease.

  • Three Color Design

    • Follow the directions for the two-color eye design. 
    • Once that is done, use a crease defining brush to apply the third shade to the true crease area
    • Make sure none of the darkest shade is actually on the eyelid or to the back corner of the eye, where some of the color is blended down onto the outer third of the eyelid and also into the crease.
    • When applying color in the eye's crease, be sure to blend out and slightly up rather than following the downward curve of the eye.

  • Four Color Design 

    • Follow the directions for the three-color eye design. 
    • The fourth color is best applied with an eyeshadow brush designed for detail work, which means a brush with a smaller or more pointed head and densely-packed bristles.
    • Apply the color using small strokes over the back corner of the eyelid only.
    • This look is easy to get wrong until you've had sufficient practice, so do take time to experiment to build confidence in achieving this look.
    • You may wish to use the third color again in the crease, to intensify the effect.
