How To Apply Brown Eyeshadow
Brown is one of the classic colours for an eye makeup. This makeup tutorial shows you how to perfectly apply brown eye shadow.
Hi. I'm now going to show you quite a classic way of how to apply brown eye shadows. So first of all, you prepare your eyelid with this makeup primer.
So, you're going to apply it about halfway through the eyelids so just above the crease. You don't have to go all the way up to the eyebrow because we're not going to go all the way there. You are then going to take a classic eye shadow brush, okay, just to apply your eye shadow all the way on the eyelid and I'm going to start this time with light eye shadow, so light beige, and I'm going to apply this all the way on the eyelid up to the crease.
So, the secret of a good makeup are layering and blending so you are going to apply this about three times so you could put three coats of the same colour and nicely in the corner, at the root of the lashes, so turn your brush over time and work with flat, not pointy, just use your brush flat so you apply more eye shadow this way. So once you've done that, you are then going to take a small structuring brush and with that small brush, you're going to create with a darker brown, you're going to create a C shape. So here, I'm doing a C.
Okay, so I do a C on the corner and I do the same on the other side. So, at the moment, it doesn't have to be nicely applied because we're going to blend this. Okay, I'm going back to my first eye.
So, I'm going to add a tiny bit of eye shadow, still the same colour, so a darker brown, and I'm going to take it slightly outwards and back inwards and you can go as far out as you want or as far in as you want but it's nice to keep the light colour here so then you're going to have the difference between the two colours. So, you can really see the difference this time. So when creating your C shape, it's a little bit more of a complicated work so you need to be patient and really build it and structure your makeup.
So, I'm working outwards and then back inwards but I'm not adding any more eye shadow because I'm using here a dark eye shadow so I don't need anything more on my brush because otherwise it will be too dark. Right, so I work nicely on the corner, this look is going to take you a little bit longer to create. It is not an easy look to do.
But once you've mastered it, it's really nice. It's quite evening and it's quite sophisticated. Okay, so you work with your brush but you can also soften and blend with your fingers so it's going to look quite natural.
Okay, so you can see the difference here, light colour, dark colour, so I'm going to do the same on the other eye so I did a touch of brown on my brush and I'm taking it outwards and back inwards and I gently soften and blend. Okay, so half the way through the eye, you want to stop there really and soften with your fingers. Okay, so this is a work of art.
You need to be patient to do that. So, I'm taking it outwards, inwards, outwards, just relaxed, softly and gently. Okay, now I have about the same on both eyes and what I'm going to do is re-add a touch of the light colour here so I'm going to take a clean brush, again, the same brush that I was using for my lighter colour and I'm just reworking here so it looks neater and nicer.
Okay, same on the other side and what I'm going to do now is pick a very light beige and with that light beige, I'm going to blend the dark here with the skin. So, you shouldn't really see it as an eye shadow. You should be very natural but you're just blending.
You don't have to go all the way up to the brow so you just stay just above the crease, okay, and just gentle strokes, very soft, and I do the same on the other side. So, you're using a light beige, in a colour matte, and this is to create quite a classic look. Okay, so I'm blending everything right and now, around the eyes, what I'm going to do is use a little angled brush or like this very flat short brush like that.
It's fine. And I'm going to take a very very dark brown eye shadow. A lot of the compacts now come with a da
