Applying eye shadows by Maybelline can change your look entirely but getting them right is tricky as it requires expertise and practice. It has to be blended properly, for it to be perfect. Some easy tips are given below so that you get the right blend of colors and look fresh and beautiful all day long.
When you are buying eye shadow, it is essential to choose colors that complement the color of your eyes. The wrong color of the eye shadow can make your eyes look dull instead of enhancing their look. For example blue eyes look fantastic with blue or bronze eye shadow whereas green eyes go well with light brown, lavender or dark green.
Apply Primer to your lids
Apply primer to your lids and follow it up with foundation or powder before applying shadow, otherwise, it may smudge and not look good. Eye lids have oil glands and are therefore, very greasy. Primer and foundation absorb oil and give your lids a matte look all day.
Blend the colors
You have to blend the colors properly after applying the shadow. Apply blocks of colors on the lid and then blend them with your fingertips of a soft brush that is meant especially for applying eye shadow. Some of the color palettes come with sponge applicators that are not very effective when it comes to blending. Ensure that the lines demarcating the colors are not visible and merge smoothly.
You need highlights to brighten up your eyes. Use a bright color to highlight the brow bones. You can accentuate the corner of your eyes too to hide all the imperfections. It will give you a soft look.
Shimmery eye shadows can draw attention to the fine lines around your eyes. Go easy on the shimmer if you are older. Try to use a metallic shade in cream color, as it does not accentuate those age lines.
Using dark shadow
Applying dark colors near the lash line can make eyes look smaller. So keep them to outline the crease and use soft colors at the base.
Cleaning up the brush
It is essential to wash and clean the brushes every day. It is not only hygienic but will also ensure that your brushes have along life and give you a good application. Wash them with baby shampoo and air-dry them after each application.
