Applying a Single Eyeshadow

Whether it’s, eye makeup for brown eyes, or, simple party eye makeup, you need to learn exactly how to apply a single eyeshadow. So, after you’re finished applying an eye shadow primer and a little foundation, (check our how to apply foundation guide), here are the steps you should follow.

  1. Brush your eye lids with a neutral color such as beige or light brown. This is important because this will lighten your eye area and enhance your base. However, keep in mind that this only applies to regular cosmetics. Airbrush cosmetics, from leading companies such as Dinair Airbrush Makeup, don’t require more than one coat of eyeshadow. There is more on how to apply eyeshadow with an airbrush below.
  2. Apply the eyeshadow you want to use by starting from your lash line and going all the way to your crease.
  3. Finish up your eye makeup with eyeliner and mascara.

Applying Multiple Eyeshades

If you’re learning how to do Smokey eyes, or, any other looks which requires multiple eyeshades, you should stick to the following steps.

  1. Start by applying the lightest shade on your entire eyelid. You can extend it towards the eyebrow if your skin there is uneven.
  2. Use the second lightest shade on the lower area of your eyelid. Keep the color close to your lash line in order to make your eyes seem large and dramatic.
  3. Apply the darkest color on the outer half of your eyelid. Start from the center and all the way to the end of your eyebrow. However, make sure to brush lightly, and steadily, for a perfect application.

Airbrushing Eyeshadow

Because you can’t learn, how to apply eyeshadow, without perfecting,  applying makeup with an airbrush, here are the steps you should follow to get flawlessly airbrushed eyelids.

  1. Load your airbrush with the airbrush eyeshadow you intend to spray. A couple of drops will go a long way.
  2. With the tip of the airbrush 2 inches away from your eyelids, start spraying while moving your airbrush in circles. Make sure to protect your lower lid before you spray to avoid making a mess.
  3. Allow the color to dry before spraying on another coat, or, more eyeshades.

As you can see, applying eyeshadow is quite simple. So, get ready to practice what you have learned here.
