How To Apply Cream Eyeshadow

Applying makeup is an art which is not easily mastered by all. Especially using a cream eye shadow is tricky. This video gives you a very easy technique of using a cream eye shadow which any lay person could follow easily.

Hi, I am Myriam. I am a makeup artist and today, I am going to show you lots of different looks on how to apply different eye shadows, different colored eye shadows, create some practical looks and also some wild looks to go out. Hi, I am going to show you how to apply cream shadow.

When choosing a cream eye shadow, the most complaints that people have is that they crease. So, what you have to do is choose an eye shadow that is waterproof. That is very important.

If it is waterproof, your eye shadow will not move all day and will look fantastic. So, when applying your cream eye shadow, you don't need to use a primer and you may need to use your fingers. So, you put a little bit on the finger, start from the middle and just apply it as best as you can on the top of the eyelid.

Now, remember, because they are waterproof, they are going to dry very quickly and they are going to be very hard to blend but you have to be very quick here and try to go onto the inner corner. It is best to use your fingers but if you want to use a brush, you can use a lip brush. So, what I do is that I use a lip brush or a pointy soft brush like this, just to go on the inner corner where it is quite hard to reach the fingers.

You can go there like that and you can try to finish off and blend with your brush while your eye shadow is still - you can still move it. So, I am going to do the same on the other side and I have chosen a funky pink here. Obviously, you can choose any colors on the eyelid and blend gently very quickly with your finger.

Make sure that it is nicely applied, blended enough, and on the inner corner, just touch up with your lip brush or a soft long brush like this which is pointy, you can reach the corner. Okay, and you can leave it like that but it is quite nice to add a little bit of powder eye shadow on the top to just normal eye shadow because it will finish off the look beautifully. So, I am going to use here quite a large brush, an eye shadow brush and just go to the other that's going to finish my look really nicely.

So, I am going to do here a very simple look and also that is really going to last all day because those waterproof eye shadows are fantastic. That's a quick and easy look to do but you do need to get used to apply the cream eye shadow to get the hang of it. By doing this, I finished my look much nicer, polished, blended, and it will last all day.

Look at that, okay. I am going to keep it like this, just very nice, fresh, natural, funky look and you can add a little bit of eye pencil if you want underneath or the top. I think, here, the look works like this black mascara and my eye shadow.

So, I hope you enjoyed all the different looks we created for you. If you want any more details you can always go on my website. .
