- The technique for applying the eye-shadow is to start with an eye primer or an eye base and apply it all over the eye area (up to the brow bone).
- Invest in good quality brushes. They last for years and ensure better blending. The flat brushes are for depositing the eye-shadow and the fluffy brushes are for blending.
- If you want the eye-shadow color to really stand out, then use a white pencil on the eyelids just before applying the eye-shadow. This technique makes the colors pop out.
- While creating smoky eyes, use creamy eye pencils as the base for a stronger/intense effect. If you are going for a brown smoky eye, opt for a brown pencil as the base.
