While we’ve all made a makeup mistake at one point in our lives, there are simple ways to fix them. Eyeshadow can be a tricky technique to master, especially a classic smokey eye which requires lots of practice! We show you just how to fix those common mistakes without removing your entire makeup.
Too often eyeshadows are not actually blended enough, and can leave a visible line on your eyelid. To correct this error, use a clean, fluffy brush to create a smooth transition between the eyeshadow and your eyelid. A transitional shade is also a great way to create a neutral base for your lid.
We’re all guilty of forgetting to prime before applying eyeshadow. This is an essential part of making any look last, especially during the warmer and more humid weather. Apply a cream primer to your lid, let it set for a few minutes, then apply your eyeshadow as usual.
Eyeliner is a sensitive issue for most women because it’s almost impossible to match both eyes. Look down into a mirror and carefully draw a flick starting from the beginner of your lower lash-line. Extend it outwards then slowly fill in any gaps with a liquid liner.
Creating a smokey can feel a little tricky, especially since the fall-out goes everywhere. To keep this from happening, there are are shadow shields which pick up excess fall-out and keep your makeup looking flawless.
Foundation as primer
Many women make the mistake of using their foundation as an eye primer. Not only is this not good for your eyes (especially in regards to foundation with added SPF), but it also doesn’t do much in terms of priming. If you can, use a cream eyeshadow which will stay on for longer in comparison to powder.
