Applying Eye Shadow – Tips for Teens

Applying Eye Shadow – Tips for Teens

If you’re younger and just getting into makeup for the first time than applying eye shadow can be a little intimidating. You’re probably not sure what colours are best for you or how to put it on once you have it.

So, we’ve come up with a few Basic Makeup Tips for applying eye shadow:

  1. Start by getting yourself an Eyeshadow Brush. Tip: Check out MAC Brushes. They’re more expensive but they’re the best! Now this is your first time and you may be thinking you just want to buy some cheap eyeshadow and give it a try. But, trust me this is something you will be doing the rest of your life so you may as well start right and with the right equipment.

When your friends are walking around looking like they’re trying out for the circus you’ll be looking like a movie star! When you start by learning how to apply eye shadow with a brush you’ll get a professional look every time. A brush allows you to layer your eyeshadow and get the exact shade of colour you are looking for. If you don’t have the money to start with a high quality brand like MAC don’t worry abut it. Just get one from WalMart for a couple of bucks. It’s better than going without and once you save up a bit of money you can than begin to upgrade your basic makeup kit with quality products.

  1. Make a visit to your local Dollar Store. Now this may sound a little contradictory after my comments in point #1 but remember you are just learning and I don’t want you to waste money. By starting with cheaper makeup you can experiment with as many shades as you want without spending a lot of money. Later when you get good at it you’ll want to invest in an Eyeshadow Palette with the core colours you like to use.

This is an opportunity to practice and you’ll be able to see what looks good on you. Even if the colours aren’t as rich as the high quality eyeshadow you will buy later you’ll still get a basic idea of what you like and what compliments your skin tone and eye shape. Get with a friend and try an outrage selection of colours. Pause at times to get serious and make a note in your journal of what really makes your eyes sing. Your friend will be a great sound board.

  1. Experiment and have some fun. If a bright blue eyeshadow is something you’re dying to try go for it. It’s OK to be cheap because you know just you and your friend will see you wearing it. Once you’ve had some fun and identified what works for you then you can go ahead and spend a little money on high quality eyeshadow.
  2. Check out YouTube and Makeup Websites like BasicMakeup.com You will discover there are a ton of makeup tutorials online that you can watch and learn from for free. And don’t just watch videos that show you the simple techniques for applying eye shadow. Checkout the ones that demonstrate bold and crazy ideas. Those tutorials will stimulate your creativity and show you what’s possible.
