Eye Shadow Secrets

eye shadow secretsThe key to great eye shadow application is the brushes. Trying to create that look whether it be smoky, sexy, cat eye or natural will be much easier with the proper applicators. Sephora and MAC both have great lines of brushes, but don’t be fooled by the price. Sonia Kashuk has a nice line of brushes available at Target at a very reasonable price. You don?t need to have dozens of brushes to put on eye shadow, but a small brush, a sponge-tip applicator, and a blending brush are must-haves to create a great look. Once you have the tools of the trade at hand, start creating a fabulous look for yourself.

To brighten and widen the look of your eyes, highlight the inner corner of the eye with a light shimmery shadow in white, peach, or silver. This also makes you appear more alert than you might be some days. You can also use this same color against the brow line to help create a lively and wide-eyed look. When applying color to the rest of the lid, use your sponge-tip applicator to apply the darkest color to the lower part of the lid and into the crease. Using a complimentary color and your brush, apply the next shadow to the remaining lid, but don?t go too high and cover up your light shadow.

Finally, blend using your blending brush and small, light circles. This basic application technique will give you a flawless look and have you ready for whatever the day may bring!
