How to apply eyeshadow (beginners)

Eyeshadows are not easy to apply they need lot of practice and technique however if you get that technique i bet you can change your look dramatically. Just a little pop of color can make you look so good.
For eyeshadow application today also i treat myself as a beginner. 
Buy one practice eyeshadow kit choose right colors for application and practice it whenever you get time. I did the same and i am still practicing :)

I have used all shimmery eyeshadow colors by Revlon Bold collection.

Things you will need
  • Eye shadow palette
  • Eye shadow brushes (invest in your brushes coz brushes really makes difference)
  • Concealer
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Eyebrow grooming brush

  • Apply concealer to the eye lid this actually make eyeshadow look stronger
  • Next is you need to highlight the eyelid with light shimmery eyeshadow from outer corner to inner corner of your eye lid. Apply it evenly, close your one eye and check for evenly application.

  • Now apply crease color which is normally darker than your first color. The more dark color you choose the more dramatic look you will get. Apply color in socket of the eye.
  • Keep your eyes open take eye shadow in your brush and apply shadow to the crease  from outer corner to the inner corner upto bridge of your nose. 
  • Blend in your crease line with blending brush  just go back and fourth from outer corner to inner corner of the eye and blend it.
