Eyeshadow is now available in every imaginable color, which encourages many women to brush their way through the entire palette. Whether cheap or expensive, matt or shiny, liquid or solid: there are no limits to the (make-up) possibilities - provided the products are used correctly. Because an eyeshadow can be as good as it is, if it is not applied correctly, the result is less beautiful to look at and only short-lived. How to apply the paint correctly and how the common products differ is explained step by step in this article.
In the following instructions you will learn step by step how to apply your eyeshadow - to achieve a perfect result:
Another important tip: Use a brush to apply eye shadow. Round and wide models are suitable for the foundation, while flat and dense or narrow ones are suitable for the shading. A very fine and thin or narrow brush is the best choice for finishing touches.
Whether as a powder or mousse, eye shadows are now available in different versions: liquid and solid, matt and shiny. In the following we present the most important differences in detail:
There is now also liquid eye shadow that looks like a lip gloss but is meant for the eyes. The content is easily applied using an integrated brush or sponge. It absorbs the color and spreads the creamy texture over the lids. But there is also a disadvantage: the liquid colors are harder to mix and they collect more quickly in the crease of the eyelid.
Eyeshadow in the form of a mousse has also become popular in recent years. Again, there is a wide range of shimmering colors that can be easily applied with your finger. The problem here is that the creamy texture settles more quickly in the crease of the eyelid, but it can be easily smudged and is a practical make-up utensil, especially on the go.
In which color the eye shadow is applied is a matter of taste. Nevertheless, there are theories about how you can make your eyes shine even more: Blue eyes look particularly good with delicate yellow, apricot, brown, rose or gold tones. For brown eyes, on the other hand, berry and plum colors are very good, even blue and green tones flatter the eye color. For green eyes, on the other hand, complementary colors are recommended, i.e. red tones and lighter nuances in violet or rosé. Gray and brown eye shadows are also good choices.
