Shimmery Eye Shadow Application Tips

A soft shimmery eye lid add brightness to the eye. A little shimmer looks good on almost everyone. I like Jesse's Girl Pure Pigment Eye Dust. It is inexpensive and is easy to find in right in your local Rite Aid for $3.99. You can apply a very light amount for a soft look or build it up for a glitzy eye. Here are a few pointers for getting it perfect.

1. Start by applying a thick layer of face powder under your eye area and on the top of the cheeks.
2. Apply an eye shadow primer to your eyelids to even skin tone and give the eye dust better adhesion. Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a good one. 

Too faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Bonding Eye Shadow Primer is also good but is clear so it won't even out skin tones.

3. Apply pencil eyeliner for a soft liner look. Apply liquid later for a bold liner look.

4. Use you finger or a sponge eye shadow applicator to apply the dust. A brush will drop too much product. Shake a bit of dust into the lid of the jar. Dip your finger or shadow applicator into the dust. Then, press the dust onto your eyelid. Repeat to build the color.

5. Apply liquid eyeliner now if you want a bold liner look. Then, mascara and let dry.

6. Now, use a powder brush to whisk away eye dust fallout and face powder that was applied under eye and cheek area.

7. Use scotch tape wrapped around your index finger to remove any shimmer dust fallout still remaining on your under eye and cheek area.
