How to apply?
Before applying shadows, an ideal option would be to use the “Backstage Eye Prime” base for eye makeup, which will help make the subsequent application of the main color more even and uniform. This base is very easy to distribute using a regular eye brush.
You can apply cream shadows in two ways:
- Using soft shading. This method can be performed by shading the shadows with your fingers until a barely perceptible coating and flicker.
- Bright shading. For this technique, it is ideal to use a special applicator to get the maximum coating density for a bright and saturated shade.
For the most intense color when using dry shadows, use the applicator to distribute the product.
When using the shadows of the "fives", you can create the following makeup options:
- Natural. For this makeup, you should apply the most average shade from the five palette to the entire eyelid, a darker and deeper shade - along the growth of the cilia, using a light shade, brighten the area under the eyebrows and add a little to the inner corner of the eyes to give them a visual increase.
- Sophisticated. The main shade that is applied to the entire eyelid is also medium in the palette, dark is applied along the growth of the cilia. Both of these shades should be shaded using the special applicator that comes with the kit. A light shade should also be added under the eyebrows and in the corners of the eyes for greater expressiveness.
For maximum fixation and durability of liquid shadows, it is best to apply them on a moving eyelid. If you use them as an eyeliner, then simply draw a small line along the base of the cilia.
Also do not forget that any shadows can be supplemented with eyeliner, even dark and black colors. To do this, you can use a black pencil or liner from the brand, which will help create the perfect French arrows or just emphasize the eyes with a clear line.
