Why is your Eye Shadow Looking Bad

There can be many mistakes, which you could keep making while applying eye shadow and makeup. The tips that are shared by various editorial makeup artists will help you understand what you are doing wrong while applying eye shadows.

Skipping Eye Primer

Many of us feel that using the eye primer is an annoying extra step, but prepping your eyelids with a primer will help you to ensure that the makeup you apply is smooth and even. The eye primer that you apply will act as a magnet for the shadow pigments, ensuring color and keep it from fading, smudging, or creasing.

There are many eye primers for you to choose from and it will be good if you can use one that has a tinted formula, as it can double up as a concealer to cover any veins visible on your eyelids.

Using Wrong Brushes

Most of the makeup palettes come with a plastic brush that has foam triangles on both ends, but when it comes to applying makeup and blending, these brushes are complete rubbish.

If you are looking to have a professional finish, you should not use the free sponge blender. Instead of that, you can go for some decent eye shadow brushes. There are many affordable brush kits available that you may use to apply eye shadows.

Eye Shadow Does Not Deliver

We all know that not all eye shadows are the same and that not all are made equal. Some are made to look uneven and patchy, whereas others super pigmented, blendable, and buttery. You will need to find the eye shadow that delivers maximum result for you.

Finding the Proper Undertone

It is true that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the undertones of eye shadows. It will be worth to work out the flattering shades of undertones to find the best one suited for you.

If you have a gold or yellow undertone, a warmer color palette will be amazing for your skin color and complexion. But if you had a pink undertone, you can experiment with cool toned undertones, as these colors will compliment your complexion.

Up & Out

While applying eye shadow, blend it up towards the tail of your eyebrow. The majority of the color should be concentrated on the outer corner and it should be blended and diffused up and out.
