We see models walk down the ramp, stage, and aisle and do their photo shoots wearing that glittery, shimmery gold eye shadow. They look goddess. Have you ever thought of yourself wearing such color but is not sure if it will look good on you or worse, you’ll look like a clown. We’ve got you these helpful and essential tips below on how to wear it right.
First thing you need to do is to clean your face. Never out makeup on a dirty face. Wash face with soap and water. Use a fluffy clean towel and pat dry your face. Next put on moisturizer, your concealer and foundation. Now, let’s work on with your eyes. If you have primer on hand, apply it on eyelid up to the brow bone. Applying primer before your eye shadow helps the eye makeup last longer and prevent smudging and creasing. But this is just optional. You may skip it if you want. Choose medium shade of gold to be applied on eyelids. Use your eye shade brush. Next step, pick the darker shade of gold and apply it on eye creases. You may use the brush with medium shade or an angled brush when applying. Blend it towards the outer edge of eyes if you don’t like beady and teeny look. Keep blending until the demarcation line between two shades of eyeshadow is no longer visible. The lightest shade of gold that you picked will then be applied on the upper side of eyelid. Start from the crease going to the eyebrows. Remember to blend it well. Now let’s move with your lash line. Apply medium shade on lower lash line. Darker shade of gold is applied on the outer eye corner of the lower lash line. You may apply eyeliner, preferably in the hue of brown, charcoal, navy blue and of course black. Finish your eye makeup with lots of mascara to make it look thicker, or if you want, you can wear false lashes too.
Choosing gold eyeshade
Though you can apply eyeshadow using fingertips, avoid using finger when you’re wearing gold eyeshade. Your fingertips may have excess eyeshadow and if you accidentally touch other parts of your face and will make you look messy.
When wearing gold eyeshadow, it is best to keep it light and simple. Don’t overdo your eye makeup, or should I say the whole makeup itself. You will end up looking like a clown.
If you want to have a smokey eye effect, apply more darker shade of eyeshadow on eye crease.
Shimmery shadows can accentuate your wrinkles.
Remember, the key in achieving and making it more look natural is blending. Always blend your makeup well.
If you have picked the right colors, you will notice that your eye color will pop, and will look that it glows on its own.
Sparkly and glittery eye shadows are ideal for teenagers. Pure gold shimmery eyeshadow are for adults.
Have a mirror in front of you and tilt it a little backwards so you can have full view of what you’re doing and how you are doing.
If it happens that there are eye shadows that fall off your face, don’t wipe it off with sponge. Grab a cleansing cloth and wrap around your finger, dab it slightly, then take a dry tissue, wrap it around your finger and dab lightly until it dries.
Always use natural light when working, unless it’s night time.
