How to Apply Eye Shadow Like an Expert, Boston, Massachusetts

Eye shadow application is an intimidating aspect of any makeup routine—it’s so easy to make a mistake or mess. To pull off the perfect look, you also have to consider everything from the shape of your eyes to the texture of the makeup.  Although you might not have spent any time at beauty school, there are still a few tricks you can use to make your makeup stand out. Below are a few helpful tips for a flawless eye shadow application. 

3 DIY Tips for Doing Eye Shadow Like a Beauty School Insider

1. Prime the Eyes

beauty schoolOne mistake people often make is forgetting to use a primer before applying their shadow. Primer helps the eye shadow stay in place by reducing some of the oil produced by the skin around your eyes. It will also help eye shadow stand out by intensifying the pigment. Some shades can look lighter on some skin tones than they do in a palette, but a primer will make the color appear more vibrant regardless of complexion tones. 

2. Use Tape for the Perfect Wings

It’s easy to overextend your makeup past the eyelid, but you can use a small piece of tape to guide your hand and create a lovely winged effect. Simply place the tape at the corner of your eye at an angle. Then take a small brush and apply the shadow up along the edge of the tape, starting from your eyelash line. This trick also works well with eyeliner, to create an even more dramatic look.

3. Use the Right Brushes

Many beauty school professionals suggest using quality brushes to achieve your desired look. Tools, like angled-liner brushes and fluffy domed brushes, perform specific functions, giving you more precision as you create your look. A set of brushes for your eyes will also help you blend your makeup into a seamless look, if you’re planning to use multiple colors. This way, you won’t have to constantly stop and clean the brush each time you switch colors on your palette.
