- Apply Eyeshadow Primer
The first thing you need to do is to ensure that you have a fresh and clean base. This is where you will apply the eyeshadow primer to your eyelids. Preparing your lids is very important if you want your eye makeup to stay intact all day. To those who do not have an eyeshadow primer, you can use any concealer that you already have. You can combine it with a translucent powder to come with a makeshift primer.
- Apply A Nude Base
If you have a fluffy eyeshadow brush, then you can use it to apply a nude base that will easily compliment your skin tone. Make sure that it blends thoroughly as this step will help reduce the longevity and intensity of the colors you are using.
- Enhance the Crease!
Remember the medium brown eyeshadow we mentioned earlier? You will have to apply it to your crease using a fluffy brush. You can add some color on the lower lash line and make sure it blends well especially towards the outer corners.
- Color It Up
You can add the dark burgundy eyeshadow making sure that you focus the color on the outside corner. If you want a Smokey effect, you can extend it gently past your crease. For best results use the fluffy brush while blending the shadow beautifully. Use the kohl pencil to define your lower lash then amp it up with your false eyelashes. Before you realize it, you will have gorgeous Smokey eyes that will stun everyone.
If you are afraid that your makeup may crease, you need to invest in a good primer because it will instantly boost your eye makeup. Make sure to use a waterproof eyeliner which will prevent any transferring. For great results, you need to first start with your eye makeup the finish with the base makeup. When defining the crease area, use a pencil brush then blend it using a fluffy brush.
