Start With Great Eyeshadow Brushes

For you to create a masterpiece, you need proper tools. You should invest in great eye makeup brushes that will help you achieve great eyeshadow looks.

Prime Your Eyelid

Before you go in with any eyeshadow colour of your choice, you should first prep the eyelid by priming. You can prime the eyelid using a concealer or foundation 2-3 shades lighter than your skin colour or use an eye primer. Priming the eyelids ensures that the eyeshadow pigments pop.

Apply Your Eyeshadow Colors

For a basic eyeshadow look, go in with the lightest (shimmer shade) colour for the brow bone as a highlighter—the second-lightest (preferable shimmer) colour for the lid. The second darkest colour is most suitable for crease- it can be used as a transition colour on the outer crease. Lastly, the darkest colour is best suited for the outer corner of the eye especially for a great smoky eye look. Ensure you blend all the shades completely for a seamless finish. 

Define Your Eye And Amp Up The Lashes

For a complete beautiful eye makeup look, finish off by lining the eyelid with a gel or waterproof liner and kohl pencil for the lower lash line. Add on mascara to add volume and length to your natural lashes, and finish off by applying a pair of falsies for a beautiful look.
