How To Apply Red, White And Black Eyeshadow

How to apply red, white and black eye shadow: this films shows you how to apply red, white and black eye shadow to achieve a smouldering eye effect.

Step 1: Introduction

Hi there, welcome to Pursebuzz and More. I just finished a video on how to apply individual lashes, so don't forget to check that out. So now I'm going to apply my eyeshadow, and I'm going to be using some crazy colors today. I'm going to be using red, black, and white.

Step 2: Applying The Base

The first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to put some base on. I'm using a blush cream in lum and I like it because it's a very moist base and it's creamy so it's easier to blend the colors together, unlike a M.A.C. paint where you've kind of got to apply it much quicker. This is also an experimental video because I just purchased a different kind of eyeshadow, you to me, the NYX. Someone asked me if I've ever used it and I bought it a long time ago and don't really remember how much I liked it, so I went to the store and I found some and I purchased it in Sunrise, which is a red color, and M.A.C. doesn't have it in red so I decided that would be a fun color to try.

Step 3: Pigment

The very first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to apply my pigment. My pigment color is called Frost. It's pretty much just a white shimmer. What I like to do is I just like to use it off the lid. If you've ever used a pigment, you know how crazy messy it can get. So let me just put some on here, and tap it a little bit. I'm using a 224 brush because I don't want to pack on the pigment. I just want to have some pigment. So what I'm going to do is put it all over my lid and just a little bit above my lid, avoiding my highlighting area right here. Brush it in...like that. It will soften the red later when you put it on and that's what you want to do because we don't want it to be, or I don't it to be super intense red.

Step 4: Red, aka Sunrise

Okay, the next thing I'm going to do is I'm going to apply the red. It's actually called Sunrise, so if I say red, I mean Sunrise. I'm going to take my brush here. It's a 224 so I don't want to pick up too much red. I'm going to flick my brush. The trick that I'm going to do is, here is my crease and just a little bit above the crease I'm going to apply the red. Very lightly apply the red...like that. So what I’m going to do is, after this I’m going to put the black on right above it just so that a little bit of red peeks right through. I’m leaving this whole part blank...just with the red. Kind of making it thinner as you go in, like that. See how when I add it with the pigment it gives it a little bit of a shimmer and it’s not just a chalky red.

Step 5: Black Tied

The next thing I’m going to do is my Black Tied. I’m going to grab my Black Tied, right here. Clean up the 224 brush, not too much, though, because then that way we can keep a little red pigment in our brush. Dab a little bit of our Black Tied, flick it. Black Tied tends to fall. And I’m going to go all the way down here where our lash point is, and we’re going to do the windshield wiper effect, so here we go. Right into the crease. Back and forth. Now if you want a lot of red then I recommend the 217 brush which picks up a lot more than the 224. And you just want to go for a bit of a softer look. It’s going to be thick right here and then I’m just going to blend it right in here. I’m going to blend it in with the red too, like that. Remember to go all the way down and in, like that. So there is my red and black.

Step 6: Liner

The look is pretty much almost finished since I’ve already done my liner, but I will do my liner again, and I’m going to use my smudge brush if I can find it. I’ve got so much stuff going on here. Here it is. It’s pretty much just a sponge. That’s what I’m looking for. I’m going to take my fluid liner and Blitz and Glitz, and I’m going to try to line this top part as best I can since I do have false lashes and this will be my se
