Applying Eyeshadow, Tips For Beginners
Applying eyeshadow for beginners can be a bit difficult. You may not be sure what colors to buy or anything else. So here are some tips for the hopeful novice:1. Get an eyeshadow brush. This may seem a bit of a stretch for a beginner, but the fact is beginners are known for having a lot of product all in one area. If you’re trying something bold, like black or bright eyeshadows, too much color at once will make you look like Bozo the Clown. However, with a brush, you are able to slowly layer your eyeshadow until you get it the shade you want it instead of having way too much color. You don’t have to get an expensive one-a two dollar one from Wal-Mart will serve as an applicator, blender, etc. Everything that you need. 2. Go to the Dollar Store. This may seem a bit unbelievable, but you are a beginner. Starting with cheaper makeup allows you to have as many shades as you want to try without spending a whole bunch on one eyeshadow palette with three colors. On the other hand, this is a good practice for more experienced appliers as well. You’re able to see what looks good on you and make a mental note of it (making a swatch on a piece of paper for later reference and then lightly spraying it with hairspray is another good practice.)3. Be willing to experiment. If you find a bright green eyeshadow that you’re dying to try, then look at it. Is the price right? Do you really like the color? If so, go for it. If it’s more expensive, see if you can find a similar color for a lot cheaper. If it rings true, then go for it! 4. Watch makeup tutorials. Don’t just watch the regular, everyday makeup. Look at the bold tutorials as well. They’ll give you an idea of what colors work well together if you decide to take it up a notch one day.
