Application tips

Do not forget to conceal the eyelid before applying matte textures to the eyes. Because it creates a base for the eyeshadow to hold to and makes them easier to blend. 

You can use an eyeshadow primer as a base, or you can use a translucent face powder. Start with a neutral base shade. Take a fluffy brush to blend, as you will get better pigmentation and placement using a denser brush. Note that glide the bristles over the pan in one direction. Don’t wipe or swirl shadow brush back & forth because this will result in fall-out, and the application will be patchy. Use two eye brushes; one to apply your shade and a clean one to blend. 

Both types of eyeshadows add life, color, and depth to the eyes and are worn as part of the everyday beauty routine.
