Basic Eyeshadow placement for us beginners ๐Ÿ˜‡

Something I always felt lost is eyeshadow placement as I’m sure many beauties out there do.  I can relate to the frustration of having a 6 to 18 Eyeshadow pan palette and not having a clue on what to do! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Hello there! I hope you are safe and healthy along with your loved ones, and that life is going well ๐Ÿ˜Š today’s episode will be just the basics and a mini video tutorial. Let’s dive into it.

Regardless you like neutral looks or colorful looks is the same rule of thumb I will link a video from a makeup artist that explains this in full.

You can do any look with just 3 eyeshadow colors the 4th would be the lid color and of course, you can add a many as you like but all are centered on this start point. I’ll explain this in the way I understand it.

1) You will need a lighter shade than your skin tone to highlight the inner corner

2) A contour shade which is a darker shade than your skin tone you apply this in the outer corner of the eye to deepen up a look if so desired.

3) A midtone or transition shade you’ll put this on the Crease.  This is a shade color in the middle of the lighter and darker shades,  not the lightest or darkest but in between.

The 4th one would be the lid color.

Some experts do point that the Crease or midtone can only be a matte, not a shimmer the lighter and darker and the lid can be either.

Now I agree with the basic eyeshadow placement but I don’t agree about the no shimmer on the Crease. I believe that makeup has no rules therefore I have done looks using only shimmers and they looked great.

The reason behind it is that the shimmer in the Crease will attract fine lines and wrinkles. I’m 42 and have no issues about it, it’s a personal preference.

We are all different, we all have different eye shapes, and out there you will see tips about how to wear eyeshadow for each shape and I don’t know about you but it’s kinda hard to find exactly what shape you have haha so I will say don’t get bound by the rules whatever makes you feel beautiful go for that like for example:

I found this hack that helps to get your eye shape, with eyes open apply shadow chosen with a brush just above the lid this will guarantee that no matter your eye shape you will have a shadow that can be seen with eyes open ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Also just follow your natural bone structure right below the brow bone, where the bone ends and the skin sinks a little this also helps bring your eye shape.

Also important is my beauties to put eye primer before eyeshadow application it helps in eyeshadow opacity and staying power.

Below is a video, I found a year ago that helped me tremendously in regards to eyeshadow placement happy to share it with you ๐Ÿ™ƒ

My first mini video tutorial ๐Ÿ’œ

I am a beginner, my dream that I am working towards getting realized next year ๐Ÿ™ƒ is to become a Makeup artist, not a self-thought but a certified one I feel there are so many things I need to fully understand to get the confidence and experience towards even bigger dreams ๐Ÿ˜Š

I feel so happy to have become better at makeup one thing that has helped me greatly is to follow tutorials I did this for a year or so and now just a few months ago I felt confident to create my own. What keeps me going is my belief that makeup has no rules and you don’t have to be perfect just have love and fun with it.

I hope you found this useful ๐Ÿ˜Š on my next episode I will talk about fashion from my point of view ๐Ÿ’ƒ in later episodes I will talk and review each palette I purchased starting with the newest ones and create looks for you. Also in October, I will speak about botox, I have scheduled an appointment for that is my first time! I will tell you my experience about this ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Sending hugs and kisses my loves ๐Ÿฅฐ be safe out there and please take care of yourself. Come see me on my next episode Monday and Tuesday for a revised Spanish version. Follow me on my socials below, let’s be friends! Bye for now ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’œ
