Here are a few useful tips you can apply
- Professional makeup artists use eyeshadow primers on the eye lids before applying eye makeup. But if an eyeshadow primer isn’t handy or can’t be found in any beauty store near you, opt for your concealer or foundation. You can pat either unto your eye lids before beginning with your eyeshadow application.
- Another primer or base used by professionals is the lip primer which must be applied on the lips before you can begin your lip makeup. If you don’t have that, use a lip balm to moisturize the lips before applying the lip liner and then the lip stick or gloss.
- If you find yourself in a sticky situation where your eyeshadows just would not pop or bring out the intensity and richness you expected, well, if you don’t have the cash to buy a new pallette, then you can make do with what you have. Personally, I would put some eyeshadow primer or concealer on the back of my palm and then with the eyeshadow brush, dap it unto the primer or concealer before actually pressing it on the eyeshadow powder. This not only helps to prevent the powder flakes from spoiling your makeup, it brings out the intensity and richness you want from an eyeshadow. If you dap, rather than rub the brush on your eye lids, the eyeshadow will look richer.
