Once you’ve decided which generally category appeals to you then it’s time to create your look.
How To Apply Fashion Makeup
Choose one look and then take the element from that look that stands out the most. Was it a well-defined eye makeup that first caught your attention? Or was the eye makeup smudged? You can actually do both looks with the same eye shadows.
A well-defined eye means that there is a contrast between the eye shadow colors used on the lid and usually the method of eyeliner application. For instance, you could use a color in the neutral range and then line your eyes with a deep eyeshadow color. Think of it as dramatic makeup.
The same makeup can work for a soft smudgy look. Apply the neutral eyeshadow and then use the same dark eyeshadow as liner. The way it is done is to use a thicker line of shadow for your eyeliner. Then take a brush or cotton swab and blend it just slightly. The darker eyeshadow can also be used in the crease.
You can have a look that is trend setting and wearable for every day if you select the one thing that appeals to you, apply your colors with a light hand and blend them well.
