Super Smart Eye Shadow Hacks

“Do your eye shadow first, then your foundation. That way, you can clean up any mess without starting all over again” By Zooey Deschanel

Creating a marvelous eye look is not just the job of a professional makeup artist; you too can become perfect in this art by following our simple eyeshadow hacks.

Eyeshadow- As a Liner

Some people don’t even know that eyeshadow is the best substitute for a liner. It gives a perfect aesthetic appeal if applied with a damp liner brush.  This eyeshadow hack will work wonders specifically in a moist environment as all the powdered shades aren’t manufactured to withstand even with a single drop of water.  Moreover, a damp liner brush will also aid in giving a sharper blend like a liner.

makeup-603732_960_720

As a Highlighter:

Highlighters have become the most vital part of a makeup; it not only gives a glowing shiny & refined look but also helps to emphasize your facial structures like your cheekbones or even your jawline. Highlighters & eyeshadows come in exactly the same formulas. So, you can use eye shadows instead if you really don’t want to spend extra money on buying a separate highlighter.

fashion-2940039_960_720

For this, you need to be very careful while picking up a color that is two shades lighter than your skin tone. Simply apply it to the higher parts of your face like cheekbones or bridge of your nose & blend away any extra lines.

Impacts of Darker & lighter Eyeshadows:

beautiful-eye-makeup-for-brown-eyes-hd-free-wallpapers

Some people are always mistaken while applying darker eyeshades on the inner side of eyelids & the lighter ones at the outside corner of an eye. This is absolutely against the rule. First, start with applying a lighter shade all over the lid & then apply a darker shadow at the outside corner of your eye. Blend it with an eyeliner for giving a perfect look. If your eyes are small, always prefer applying darker shades. It will enhance the overall look of your face.

At the end of the day, experimenting with eyeshadow and different application methods is a fun and relatively artistic way to play with your eyes!

PRO TIP:

Before using eye shadows, it’s recommended to use a primer for better finish. We recommend the NYX Professional Makeup Eyeshadow base for that purpose which is easily available on Amazon:

Recommended Eye Shadow Palette

A very pretty eyeshadow palatte to help you get on with all the above tips and hacks is NYX Professional Makeup Dream Catcher Palette, also available on Amazon

  • Then use your fingertips to massage your scalp thoroughly. Keep massaging for few minutes.
  • You can shampoo your hairs after an hour time. Don’t forget to use a hair conditioner for long-lasting results.
  • Repeat the procedure twice every week.
  1. Lock the cuticles with cold water:

Hot water is linked with a weakening of hair strands. As a result, it leads to breakage of hairs more often. Always use lukewarm water to wash your hairs but at the end don’t forget to give a blast of cold water to your hairs.

It is just because cold water aids in closing your scalp pores that eventually protects your scalps from dirt & oils. No more shedding of hairs now!

A healthy diet is linked to a better hair growth. Don’t forget to consume these foods on regular basis to boost your hair’s length.
