Eyeshadow Lesson (Visual)


Here are some step-by-step pictures of some creative ways you can play with applying eyeshadow, as well as some before/after pics:

Me WITHOUT A DROP OF MAKEUP (I know scary huh!?? Thank God for makeup! haha)

Me AFTER putting Laura Geller's Spackle Face Primer and Revlon's Skinlights in Buff/Chamoise.

Apply light eyeshadow base. I chose Revlon's "White Whisper" and blended it with limelight.

Starting from the middle of your lid, sweep your brush to the outer corner of the lid, and blend.

To achieve this:

If you feel like getting more creative, make your eyes stand out by adding some bold bright colors, in this example I used MAC's "Creme de Violet" and L'oreal's Teal.

Start by making 'swatches' of each color side by side, blending it with each other little by little.

Line your lashline with black liquid eyeliner (I used Revlon's "Blackest Black").

See the BIG difference makeup makes? My eye with makeup looks so much more wider and brighter!

Line bottom lashes with the same colors using a smudge brush.

Almost finished!

Lastly, for eyebrows, shade in your eyebrows with an eyeshadow or eyebrow powder one shade lighter than your natural hair color, using a SMALL BRUSH and follow the natural arch of your eyebrows. DRAWN IN eyebrows are tacky and make you look like a clown. Spray a little hairspray on your eyebrow brush to keep those little flyaway hairs tame! Comb in one direction towards your ear.

Finally, the finished product!
