When it comes to applying eye shadow, there are a few basic rules that will help you achieve a flawless look every time. These tips are easy to follow, so you’ll be well on your way to mastering the art of eye shadow application in no time at all!

Tip 1: Choose the right eye shadow formula

If you have dry skin, cream formulas are better for you because they won’t crease as much and will be more comfortable on your lids. If you have oily skin, powder formulas will be better for you because they won’t transfer onto your eyelids as easily or be as prone to creasing in fine lines (which can happen with creamy products).

  • Powder formulas are best for blending and creating an even base color across the lid area without any harsh lines or unevenness from applying too much product in one area and not enough in another place.* Choose a formula that is right for your eye shape:
  • Round eyes – Rounder shapes should choose softer colors like dusty rose tones or browns that aren’t too dark so they don’t overpower their features;
  • Almond shaped eyes – The almond shape works well with deep blue hues like cobalt blue;

Asymmetrical eyes – These types of eyes look best when paired with shimmery golds that enhance their natural beauty

Tip 2: The best brushes for eye shadow application

The second tip is to use the right brush. It’s important to use a brush with the right shape and texture so that you can apply your eye shadow evenly and efficiently. For example, if you want more precise application, use a brush with a tapered shape–this will allow you to get into smaller areas of the lid without creating an unnatural effect or messiness. If you want bolder color and less blending time (because who doesn’t?), then opt for something like a flat-tipped brush or one with rounded edges instead. For those who aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to choosing their perfect match(es), we’ve created this handy guide:

Tip 3: Apply your base color

Step 3: Apply your base color to your entire lid, from lash line to brow bone.

Use a fluffy brush for this step. A fluffier brush will help you distribute the shadow more evenly across your lid and blend out any harsh edges.

The key to getting an airbrushed look is having soft edges on the outer corner of your eye, so use a blending brush (or even just fingers) to soften up any harsh lines or edges in this area as well as along any creases that may have formed in Step 2 above.

Tip 4: Blend all of your colors seamlessly together

You want to make sure that all of the colors in your eye shadow look like they were applied at the same time, so use a soft blending brush to blend them all together until they are smooth and even. If you have trouble seeing where one color ends and another begins, try using a clean blending brush (or finger) to remove any excess shadow from around your eyes before moving on to the next step.

Tip 5: Set your eye shadow with a powder setting spray or primer

  • Setting sprays can be used to keep eye makeup in place, which makes them great for preventing creasing and fading. They also make it easier to apply eyeshadow because they help the product adhere better to the lid, which means less fallout during application and blending (and less clean up after!).

Tip 6: Don’t forget to blend underneath the eye and in the inner corners of the eyes..

The crease of your eyelid is an important place to apply color, but it’s also important not to leave a harsh line there. To avoid this, use a brush or sponge applicator and blend out any harsh edges that may have formed between your upper lid and lower lid. You can use a darker shade on top of this area if desired, but make sure that it blends seamlessly into lighter shades (like those used for highlighting) below it!

  • Tip 7: Use shimmery shadows as highlighters for an extra glowy effect!

You can create a flawless eye look by following these tips.

  • Choose the right formula for your skin type

If you have dry skin, choose an eye shadow that contains a little bit of oil in it. This will help keep your lids moisturized and prevent creasing throughout the day. If you have oily skin, opt for a more powdery formula with fewer oils so that it doesn’t make matters worse by clogging up your pores further down on their way to becoming blackheads or whiteheads (you know what I mean).

  • Choose the right brush size depending on how much coverage you want

If you want to create a subtle look with just one shade of color all over both eyes, use small brushes like these ones from Sigma Beauty ($19 each). They’re great at applying cream products such as concealer or foundation but also work well with powder products like blush and bronzer too!

Conclusion

The most important thing to remember is that you should have fun with your eye shadow. If you’re not enjoying the process, then there’s no way it will look good on you! So go ahead and experiment with different colors, techniques and brushes until you find something that works best for your unique eye shape and coloring.
