1. Prepare the Eyelid for Glowing Eyeshadow
Before starting to make up the eyes, use an eye primer or primer. This product, presented in liquid or cream format, prepares the eyelid before makeup. It makes the shadows last and pigment more, facilitates an even application, and prevents them from cracking.
Most of the eye pre-bases are nude and are concealed with makeup, although there are also gold or glitter shades to enhance the look further.
2. Use at Least Three Shades and Blend Well
You can choose the tones you want. If you want to get pretty eyeshadow makeup, we recommend using three colors of the same color range, from lighter to darker.
In the following steps, we will explain in detail how and where to apply each of the shadows. Finally, choose a very bright and light fourth shadow to illuminate the area of the tear and the arch of the eyebrow.
The application technique is essential when it comes to obtaining a good result. Use two brushes, one to apply the shadows and the other to blend.
Who hasn’t had to remove their eyes after applying the shadows because they looked like a raccoon? One of the most common mistakes is not to blur the shadows. However, this is a fundamental step to achieve proper eye makeup. Otherwise, the darkness will not look natural and will create the dreaded raccoon effect.
3. Apply a Transition Shadow to get Beautiful Eyeshadow
For this step, use the lightest color of the three you have chosen. The shades you use must be of the same color range to achieve a more professional result.
Apply this shadow to the eye socket and blend well with a blending brush. In this way, you will be able to unify the different tones and reduce the differences between the different shades, achieving a much more natural result.
4. Put The Central Shadow all Over the Movable Eyelid
This shade will be the predominant makeup. In this case, use a flat brush to deposit the product all over the mobile eyelid. Then blend well to achieve a natural result and reduce the excess product.
5. Provides Depth to the Gaze with the Darkest Tone
Apply the darkest shade to the outer corner of the eye socket, just where the bone ends, and blend gently to avoid cuts.
6. Shadow to Light Up Eyeshadow
Finally, give the shining touch, and brighten the look, apply an apparent and luminous shadow in the area of the tear and the arch of the eyebrow.
