Use easy techniques
It’s best for eyeshadow amateurs to begin with cream eye shadow sticks that they can easily apply with the help of their fingertips. This avoids having to use brushes or sponges which may prove challenging to a beginner.
Keep creases at bay
To avoid your makeup from settling into the creases of the eyelid, prep your skin with the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer that promises to give even toned skin and creates the perfect base for makeup.
Never start with powder eyeshadows
If you’re new to the eye shadow game, then ditch powder eye shadows and stick to either pencil or cream shadows. Cream eye shadow creates a base for you to blend with your fingers or brush.
Prep with a nude shade
Before swiping any solid colour eye shadow on your lids, go all the way up to your crease and outer corners to shape your eyes with the help of a nude-y brown shade. This will make things more fun for you!
Build up slowly
Once you’ve applied a nude shadow, build on it by adding different shades and textures. To make your eyes pop, try highlighting your inner corners with some shimmer or metallic colour.
Use the right tools
Even the makeup mavens tend to make mistakes! So, it’s absolutely normal to take time in mastering the art of applying shadow perfectly. Apart from using the right brushes, always have Q-tips by your side. They can be of great help in correcting eye makeup errors.
