If you’re looking to create a vibrant and brighter eye look, you might find difficulty in achieving that if you don’t go about it the right way. I’d be giving three simple ways you can achieve that in this article.
1) Use a Base: Eyeshadow primers and Bases will definitely switch up your look by highlighting the pigmentation. If you cannot afford good quality ones, you should consider getting a good concealer and making the most of it. Concealers give you control and let you choose where you’d like to highlight a little more or less. I will not recommend using Vaseline because you could end up with oily lids, and unless you’re going for glossy lids, it’s best to be safe.
2) Wet your brush before application: Applying a setting spray or even plain water on your eyeshadow brush before rubbing the brush eyeshadow you will like to use. Be sure to clean the excess water on the brush with a dry cloth or tissue so it doesn’t start to drip and make your eyeshadow runny. You only need a DAMP brush. This will only work with foiled eyeshadow pigments like your shimmery eye shadow, do NOT try this with a regular powdery matte eyeshadow.
3) White eye pencils: Depending on the look you’re trying to achieve, you can use a white eye pencil before application, for brighter colors. The pencil is applied as a base and will lighten whatever colors are applied on it. You can also use a black pencil when going for a dark Smokey or sultry look to make it darker.
By using the methods above, you will find a noticeable difference in vibrance and pigmentation with the eye look you’re going for. I hope you found this article helpful.
