The Ultimate Do’s and Don’ts When Applying Eyeshadows

In case you’re struggling with applying eyeshadows, we’re here to guide you.

Let’s get real: applying eyeshadow can be a daunting task with the range of brushes out there (e.g.blending, crease or angled brushes) and the techniques too. Just remember, there’s no hard and fast rule but practice makes perfect!

DO:

✓ Experiment with colour. Neutral and earthy colours are foolproof, but the occasional purple smoky eye lets you switch things up from the usual.

✓ Use an eyeshadow primer before applying colour, especially if you have oily lids. Primers work wonders in helping your eyeshadow stay put.

DON’T:

✗ Go overboard. Leave swatches of bright blue eyeshadow paired with hot pink for the runways (unless you’re attending an ‘80s-themed party).

✗ Pile on the blusher if you’re sporting a heavy smoky eye. Keep it subtle to avoid looking dated.
