How to Apply Eyeshadow like a Pro, Even if You're a Beginner
April 15, 20221 min read
Eyeshadow can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be! Regardless of whether you’re using 1 shade or 4, the key to any eye look is blending. You want all the edges of the shadow to look softly diffused around the eye.
Pauline is sharing all of her best eyeshadow application tips in this step-by-step tutorial. Here’s a sneak peek:
Start with a transition shade. A transition shade acts as a buffer between your skin and your eyeshadow. It creates a soft and warm base for eyeshadow application. Our go-to transition shade? Bronzer!
Always tap off any excess eyeshadow pigment before applying. You can always go back in and build up pigment, but it’s far more difficult to tone it down if it’s too intense.
Start with small brush strokes to better control where you’re applying the eyeshadow. Once the pigments start to blend with the skin, you can start sweeping your brush across the eyelid and into the crease.
