At Evans, we’re not immune to the power of a bold eye look. The right makeup combo can turn any outfit into a certified knockout! The real challenge comes with getting that makeup to stay in place.
We’re no strangers to the battles of everyday makeup looks. We’ve contended with smudging, streaking and creasing. We’ve battled failed wings and smudged mascara. Thankfully, along the way, we’ve amassed a small collection of foolproof tips for refining our routines.
So, how can you get your eye makeup to look flawless everytime?
Use eyeshadow primer
Eyeshadow primers are a liquid or cream-based substance that can be applied to the eyelid to prep your skin for eye shadow.
Primers assist with makeup longevity. They make eyeshadows far easier to blend, offering a smooth canvas to apply your makeup onto. Additionally, primer acts as a barrier between your skin and your makeup. It helps to keep the naturally occurring oils in your skin away from your eyeshadow. This effectively helps to prevent creasing, fading or smudging.
A fabulous eyeshadow primer is a worthwhile investment if you’re looking to perfect your eye look!
Find the right brushes
Ask any artist, it’s difficult to create a masterpiece without the right tools. In this case, those tools are brushes! Invest in a few good cosmetic brushes for even, precise and hygienic makeup application.
The right brushes can result in a bolder, brighter colour payoff; allowing you to get the most out of your eyeshadow palettes.
Don’t forget the lower lash line!
A little shadow on the lower lash line goes a long way!
When you’re creating a bold eye look, it’s important to balance your look out to open up your eyes! During the day, use softer hues like an earthy brown. For a more dramatic look, go a shade or two deeper, feathering gently outwards with a light hand to keep from encroaching into panda-eye territory.
Finish off your eye look with a bold mascara to feather and lengthen your lashes for the perfect, fluttery finish.
