How To Apply Eyeshadow Like A Pro – Complete Guide

Applying eyeshadow is relatively easy once you learn it to do properly. However, learning to apply eye makeup the right way is no simple task. How do you choose the right shade for your eye color and skin tone? Will you ever use every color in that eyeshadow palette?

Learning how to apply eyeshadow correctly allows you to create looks ranging from no-makeup to all-out glam. In short, eyeshadow can take your makeup look to the next level.

If you are new to the makeup game, it’s easy to get confused about the best ways to make your eyes pop. So we’ve crafted a guide to show you exactly how to handle all those eyeliners, mascaras and shadows.

Tools You Need To Work With Eyeshadow

You need to first make sure that you have a good set of professional makeup brushes. Next, select an eyeshadow along with a good primer. Then to finish off, grab the best mascara and eyeliner.

How Do I Apply Eyeshadow?

Before applying the makeup just make sure your skin and makeup brushes are clean. For your skin, look for a hydrating facial cleanser to help you keep your skin moisturized and bright. As for the eye makeup brushes, give them a good wash. Then, make sure to lay flat so they dry properly.

Now, prep your eyes by sweeping some primer across your lids. Primers or cream shadow colors can be an easy way to add depth. After your primer has been applied, it’s time to build the base.

The easiest way to create a beginner’s eye is to opt for a makeup palette with complementary colors. It’s good to keep in mind that there are four general shades you will use to build the perfect beginner eyeshadow look: a neutral color for the base, a medium shade for depth, a darker color for the outer corner, and a shimmer shade or lighter color to highlight underneath your brow and for your inner eye to open them up.

Now, start off with the neutral color and place it over your entire lid. Then define your crease with something that’s good for the base. For the outer corners of the eyes, start by taking an angled brush and applying a color darker than what you used on your crease.

Create a V-shape from your lash line to the outer portion of your eye crease and remember, start with just a little bit of product, then work your way up.

Now it’s time to finish off your look with a highlight. Choose a shimmer shadow within your color palette and apply it underneath your brow bone and in your inner eye to make your eyes pop.

Now it’s time to blend everything together. Blending brings the entire look together. Although your eye makeup consists of four different colors, it shouldn’t look like it. Spend time blending so the colors meld together and you don’t have sharp lines.

After applying your shadow, now is the time to use your eyeliner depending on your eye shape and liner abilities. Finish off your new eye look with your favorite mascara.
