Apply primer

Just like your face, the skin on your eyelids  need a base to sit on and grip the makeup, making it last longer. For this, start by applying an eyeshadow primer to your eyelids and wait for a minute, then start applying your eye makeup. This will make your eye makeup last longer and prevent it from settling into the creases.

Consider your eye shape

While it’s great to watch YouTube tutorials and learn a few techniques off it, remember that every eye shape demands a different look to really stand out. What works for your favourite blogger may not necessarily work for you. For hooded eyes, blend your eyeshadow outwards to make the eyes look larger. Similarly, for round eyes apply a little highlighter below the brow bone to create the illusion of bigger eyes.

Ace the blending

Don’t be scared to try different colours in one look. Mix and match shades to create a more stylish look that blends seamlessly and looks stunning. Make sure you tap off excess product before applying to prevent fall out. Another way to get the application right is first pressing the product on your lid and then blending it out.
