Some tips for Easy eye shadow application/blending


1. Apply the eye shadow all over the lid evenly. Do not go beyond the crease/socket line.

2. Using a soft fluffy brush, use gentle wind wiper motion (back and forth motion) to diffuse the edges of the eye shadow.

3. Keep the blended area reserved to the socket line. Do not go all the way up to the brow bone!

  6. Hi, I really like your review of products and I am just venturing into make up and your blog really helps me choose what to buy and what to stay clear off.
    I am a beauticians utter nightmare because I am as not girly as it is possible to be while being one. My make up comprises of wearing kohl on my lower water-line and lip gloss. That’s it.
    That being said, I tried wearing wearing eye shadow (MaxFactor) but it turned to be a disaster. I have hooded eyes and the shadow creased and transferred near the brow bone. Do you have any suggestions about the type of eye shadow I can use (cream or powder/company), primer, etc?
    I will be eternally grateful to you!!!
    PS: I have highly creamy skin.

    1. Hi Konali, I'd suggest you use a powder eye shadow with a base like the Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadow (it will act as primer). Avoid cream eye shadow that don't dry down as they will crease. Also just use regular compact powder/loose powder lightly on the lids before applying eye shadow. It will help absorb the excess oils.

  7. After watching this video now I can easily & efficiently blend my eye shadows… Proved very helpful to me… Thanks alot
