Eye Shadow: Applying and Blending Tips

I've been gone for too long and as a come back post, I'll share with you these awesome makeup tutorial photos I found in Google. I used to see these pictures in Facebook and they never fail to amaze me! As I've told you before, I am not a makeup junkie but I am still curious about it. 

I find it easier to learn how to apply eye shadows using visual images/videos rather than reading HOW-TOs in blogs and books. I know you're excited as much as I am so..... here they are!

 I'm a fan of gold, tan and bronzes - and I really really love this combination! I find it simple yet elegant.

I think every girl should know how to do this kind of makeup - SMOKEY EYES.

I am not a fan of colorful eye shadows but this one is awesome. Blue and Purple - perfect combination!

This can be an everyday makeup. You can wear it all day - in your school, office, hang-outs, etc.

In applying eye shadow, Blending is key so here are some instructions on HOW TO BLEND EYE         

  • 1. Blend eye makeup only after you've applied all the eye shadow shades you want to wear. Apply all three eye shadow colors if you're planning to wear highlighter, midtone and accent colors. For the best effect, the highlighter color should be your lightest eye shadow color.
  • 2. Wait to apply eyeliner and mascara until after your eye shadow is blended; otherwise, you'll end up with a big mess to clean up.
  • 3. Use the brush you used to apply your accent color to blend your eye makeup so that you don't get your darker accent color on the brush you use for your other two lighter eye shadow colors.
  • 4. Buy a tapered blending brush for applying and blending eye makeup if your budget permits. You'll get a much better end result than if you use the small eye shadow brushes that accompany discount store makeup. Better yet, splurge on high-end eye makeup for the best application.
  • 5. Move the makeup brush lightly across eyelids and under the eyebrows to blend eye shadow and remove any excess makeup.
  • The image below shows how to apply eye shadow according to your eye shape.

  • There you go lovelies! I hope you learned something from my come back post. If you do have any tips about makeup, share it by leaving a comment below!
