How To Apply Eyelid Makeup
The classic way of applying eye makeup is with different eye shadow colours being blended perfectly well. Here is the step-by-step tutorial for you to follow when it comes to eyelid makeup.
I'm going to show you how to apply eyelid makeup. So, that's just going to be quite a classic way of doing eye makeup using two to three different colour eye shadows. So first of all, I prepare my eyelid with my eye makeup primer so halfway through just above the crease, make sure it's nicely applied and that will give more intensity to your makeup and keep your eye shadow all day.
So, I'm going to try by applying a light colour over the lid and I'm choosing here a light shimmery orangey pinky colour. So, I'm applying this all over the mobile lid and just above the crease. I go over two or three times because the trick of doing a good makeup is to layer and to blend so you want the intensity.
Over here, it's looking really beautiful. So now, what I'm going to do is take a smaller brush, quite flat, and with that brush, I'm going to work on the outer corner of the eyes with a darker colour so I want to blend that colour in but I want to keep it just a bit darker than the other one but blending it really nicely with the rest. Okay, so my colour is a touch darker than the other one, not too dark here, because I'm going to save the dark colour to go around the eyes.
By doing this, I'm just gently blending. I'm taking it outwards slightly but natural so it's not too pointy, not too harsh, not too round, but just taking it out gently with my brush so without adding any eye shadow, I'm just taking it outwards like that on her corner, okay. So it's really beautiful now, blended and you can see that I've used two different colours and you have that absolutely beautiful contrast here and if you want to blend the top, even better, use a very natural colour.
This is a very soft brush, just there, under the brow, but nothing shimmery so just to match the skin colour just to make sure you blend eye shadow well and you have no harsh line. But you wouldn't have a harsh line, anyway, because of the eye shadows we are using and the way we've applied them, okay. Right, what we're going to do now is going to use an eye pencil so I'm going to use here a brown eye pencil and I'm going to go on top of the eye, so just on the lash line to create some definition on the eye.
It doesn't have to be well-applied because on top of that, I'm going to apply some more eye shadow. So a little bit of this, look up for me, I'm going to do the same underneath. I'm applying some pencil first and after I put on some eye shadow, the dark eye shadow.
Why is that? Well, because it's going to define the eye area but also the eye shadow is going to set my creamy texture from my pencil. So, I'm taking a small little brush here. It could be an angled brush or it could be a small little brush like this one and I'm going to take a very dark eye shadow, so a very dark brown, and I'm going to go over that line, so very close to the root of the lashes, and I'm going to do exactly the same underneath so it's going to blend and set my pencil.
So, you can put it as low as you want if you want it a little bit smoky but if you just want the definition, keep it quite close to the lashes and you go inwards but you don't have to go all the way in with this look because it's quite a nice simple look and quite classic. Okay. And to finish off, I'm just going to add a little bit of mascara.
So, your look is now finished. So, you see you've done a really beautiful look by using two colours, so use two colours that contrast but they don't have to be too different from each other. So here, I've chosen a very light orangey sparkling gold colour with the soft gold brown colour and you just blend them together and just work around the eyes with a pencil and then a dark brown eye shadow.
