Have you ever been to a party or any occasion and notice how your eyes and lips are the first centers of attention when you try engaging with people.
Well, the eyes hold a lot of information about your personality and character so that first impression always counts to how the communication will go.
There are many simple and easy ways to enhance your eyes from eyeliners to creams but the eyeshadow stands out from my viewpoint because of how much beauty they can add to your eyes.
Eyeshadows are not only convenient for your eyes but also and charm to your overall looks.
Ever find yourself wondering how to perfect your eyeshadow, well look no further, I have compiled my easy simple and outstanding eyeshadow looks to make your eyes stand out and a simple beginner guide.
EYESHADOW FOR BEGINNERS
“The eyes are the window to your soul,” you have probably heard this a couple of times and wondered how that is possible. Well, it’s possible with a bit of eyeshadow here and there.
Check out our beginner-friendly step-by-step eyeshadow techniques.
- FIRST STEP- APPLY CONCEALER
Adding a bit of concealer will let your eyes color pop and let the eyeshadow last the whole day. Blend in the concealer nicely around your eyelids.
- SECOND STEP – APPLY EYESHADOW
Gently apply a bit of eyeshadow to your eyelids with a brush and blend it beautifully till none of the product is standing out.
On the outer corners of your eyelids apply a deeper shade and blend it perfectly while on the center of your eyelids apply a lighter shade of eyeshadow, this will give your eyes that color pop effect and look.
- THE FINISH
For a beautiful finish apply mascara and an eyeliner starting with the eyeliner across your lower lash and upper lash respectively. Apply the mascara to the finish lightly for a beautiful fluffy effect.
EYE SHADOW LOOKS
Whether you’re a beginner or professional you have those eyeshadow looks you always want to pull off perfectly at the mirror but come off short.
Let me share with you my top eyeshadow looks that are beginner-friendly and easy to get on your first try.
PURPLE GAZE EYESHADOW AND EYELINER lOOK
This is perfect for a beginner because of how simple it is and adds a nice pop of color to your eyes which is truly attractive and outstanding.
What you will need.
- Shimmery Purple eye shadow shade
- Shimmery Silver eye shadow shade
- Purple eyeliner
Okay, that’s all, Let’s get to it.
- Step one
Apply concealer or foundation around your eyes but I prefer primer for this because of its simplicity and effectiveness in pulling out the look. Let it dry before proceeding any further to make it easier to blend later on.
- Step Two
Apply the warm eye shadow onto the eyes and its edges extending a bit upwards to an angle pointing towards your brows. Blend it upwards smoothly and letting the color fade without any hard lines visible.
- Step Three
Brush off some of the purple eyeshadow across your eyelids carefully not to ruin the look. At the extreme outer end of your eyelids apply the silver shade forming a “V” shape using a pencil eyeshadow brush.
Blend in perfect circular motions and remove off any excess product left for a nice clean look.
- Step Four
Not forgetting the lower lash line, use the silver shade here with a highly recommended pencil or other small brush. Then apply the purple eyeliner along with the upper areas of your eyelid.
Finish your beautiful look with some mascara.
FELINE MINTY GREEN LINER & EYE SHADOW LOOK
I love this cat-like look and I know most women love feline-like eyes.
What you will need
- Metallic Eye shadow shade
- Mint Green Eyeliner
- Light Shimmer Eye shadow
- Step One
As the look before you start by applying primer or concealer and foundation but it depends on your preference and if you readily have the product available.
Make sure to blend them perfectly and let them dry before proceeding.
- Step Two
Start out with the metallic shadow and gently apply it lightly on the upper lids and use a pencil brush to apply the shimmer shade to the lower eyelash area.
- Step three
Now for this tricky part apply the mint green liner to form the outer edge moving it inwards. Fill in the edges of your eyelids smoothly with the green.
- Step Four
Blend everything beautifully and correct any missing areas you may have missed. For the finish add a bit of mascara and you’re all set.
