Breaking Down Beauty: Steps To Eyeshadow Application

By Sheila Arkee

Something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time is to break down the steps to my typical, tried-and-true, works like a charm shadow application technique. For today’s look I’ve decided on a smoky look with color.

Me before makeup.

Kinda scary, huh? Mascara, as you will see, makes all the difference. In other news, I think I might just have to marry the Revlon Photoready 3D Volume mascara – it is fab-u-LOUS!

I picked up this new Wet n Wild single shadow (with bonus liner) the other day, and I have to say I am a little disappointed in the pigmentation in comparison to the Wet n Wild palettes.

It’s not as great, and I ended up pressing the shadow on my lid with my finger to get the desired amout of color. Although I didn’t use the liner in this look, it’s not half bad! So much smoother than other Wet n Wild liners I’ve used in the past.

I used a small, flat brush to pack the color on the lid. I pat the color on, taking my time and adding layers.

The color was disappointing, so I used a purple from the Wet n Wild Lust palette to add a little more flavor, using the edge of the brush to add color to the crease of my eye.

Next, I used the worlds best brush ever to add the blue/green shadow from the Wet n Wild palette.

And then a fluffy brush to blend it all out.

I used a small, shader brush to add a highlight color to my browbone and inner eye.

Then some liner.

To even out the liner on the top lid, I used a clean liner brush.

Then mascara and brows.

And, voila!!!!
