What one must know is different types of Eyeshadow and each one comes with different texture, color, formula and effect. We got everything you need to know about its different types and how to make it work. So keep scrolling and shining!!
Types of Eyeshadow and How to Apply Them
1. Powder Eyeshadow
Its best for beginners as it is easy to blend. One thing to note is that you must never rub powder eyeshadow. In fact, don’t ever rub anything onto your eye as the skin is so sensitive; the more you touch it the more prone it becomes to developing fine lines and sagging. Apply by gently patting and pressing the color onto the eyelid. You can use a eyeshadow brush and even fingertips will do.
The best part about cream eyeshadows is their blendability. You can combine two or more colors for a dramatic look. This type of eyeshadow also works well with large shader brushes, specifically synthetic, as they allow you to easily pick up product and easily pack it onto your lids.
To apply liquid eyeshadow, you can apply directly onto the lids with the wand or with a fine, thin liner brush to create a colorful winged-eye. It’s important to note that liquid eyeshadows dry quickly. They’re easy to apply but difficult to master..
4.Loose Powder Eyeshadow/Pigments
This kind of eyeshadow is for advanced makeup artists or enthusiasts. A good loose powder is finely milled and highly pigmented. To make loose powder work, apply a thin layer of eyeshadow primer and when applying the pigment, pat the color onto the lids. For a dramatic effect, wet your brush before applying as this will not only help the shadow adhere to your skin, but will instantly heighten the color payoff.
5.Stick Eyeshadow or Crayon Eyeshadow
For those who do not like complicated eyeshadow application, the stick or crayon eyeshadow is what you need. The best thing about shadow sticks is their long-wearing formula. It can actually last up to 24 hours! This is all thanks to the intense colors and concentrated formula that makeup brands use on shadow sticks nowadays.
This eyeshadow is actually baked in an oven, not pressed. What makes this type of eyeshadow a huge hit among women is its ultra-smooth and blendable formula. Applying baked eyeshadow can be done wet or dry. If you want intense color for a dramatic look, apply it wet. Foiled eyeshadow application can be used with this type of eyeshadow. If you just want to add color to your lids, dry application will do.
Note-Always remember to use an eyeshadow primer before applying the eyeshadow as it acts as a barrier between the eyelid and the eyeshadow. Eyeshadow Primer not only improves the staying power but also helps creasing on the lids. So blend, blend and blend!
