Eye Shadow Tips that Flatter-Eyes
Use these eye shadow tips
when you want to try something that varies from the norm. Shadows can breathe new life BACK into your face and brighten up your eyes, even if you don’t wear any other makeup.
Bright colors attract wandering eyes and draw. Subdued colors express softness, sweetness... sincerity.
Powder eyeshadow shades are always best applied with a brush. Why? Because sponge applicators can get flimsy really fast and are often an unreliable way to apply shadows. They also attract bacteria and can fall apart easily. How many eyeshadow colors do you have minus the sponge, that fell apart long before you'd run out of powder? Isn't that a drag?
And although powder shadows are great, creamy eyeshadows are the top dog! Because they contain humectants, your colors will look lusher and more radiant. The caveat is that they can smear if worn too heavily. They are still a makeup artist's best choice!
Use these eye shadow tips to add personality to your face. Your EYES don't have to be dull and drab
. JAZZ them UP and CHanGe IT up often! PLAY UP your EyeS every chance you GeT. Why not? Right?
