Here’s some beautiful eyeshadow inspiration for you and some tips on how to create each look. The looks are not as complicated as you may think, it’s all in the blending and the way you hold your brush.
Now, you may think by holding your brush towards the brush/applicator end it will give you more precision. Application using this technique is fine for creating liner but if you use it for lids or socket line, it can lead to harsh lines and poor blending.
The best way for effortless application, is to hold your makeup brush towards the opposite end of the brush/applicator end. This will lighten the application making the strokes more effortless and naturally flawless.
Before you can apply your eyeshadow or any makeup correctly, you need to have a set of the correct brushes and know what each one is for.
Next it’s time to pick your palette, and there are so many beautiful colours out there to try. If you are an Instagram follower like myself, you will have seen so many beautiful makeup demos and pictures using the most amazing looking eyeshadow palettes.
Some of the most popular seem to be;
Huda’s Rose Gold Edition – £56

💫💫Tip – Apply your eye makeup before your concealer, foundation and powders. You can wipe away any shadow spill and clean up any edges this way, giving you a flawless finish.💫💫
The diagram above shows you how to create a basic smokey eye.
1. Blend a neutral almost flesh tone all over lids and up to brow bone. Then apply a highlighter shade to the brow bone to attract the light and give the illusion of a lifted brow area.
2. Apply the highlighter to the inner corners of the eye, this gives the illusion of big bright eyes. You will instantly look like you’ve had 10 hours sleep!
3. Blend a medium to dark shade into the crease of your eye socket. Blend, blend and blend some more to avoid harsh lines.
4. Apply a medium to light shade over lid and blend, blend, blend for a seamless application.
5. Apply your dark shade in a sideways V shape at the outer corner of your eyes. This will add drama, depth and a smokey edge to the eye.
Always finish off with a slick of eyeliner, lashings of your favourite mascara or a pair of falsies for extra wow factor.
