When it comes to makeup products, lipsticks and eyeshadows are the most transformative ones out there. A swipe of the right shade can add a little dazzle to your look in ways that not many other items can! However, with the array of palettes and products available, it can get tricky for beginners to work with eyeshadows. Luckily, there are some foolproof formulas out there that are made for novices. Read on to see them all.
1. Shiseido Aura Dew Face, Eyes, Lip
This multi-use product is perfect for newbies! Since the formula is sheer, you can apply it freely to add a little shimmer and dimension to your lids. If you prefer a sparklier effect, you can build up the intensity by applying more.
2. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
If you are looking for a quick fix, these sticks are the ones to get. The creamy consistency ensures that the shadow goes on smoothly, whilst the pigmented formula delivers an instant pop of colour. Opt for the soft, neutral shades for an everyday look or go for a stronger shade, like ‘Violet Plum’, for date night. Once you master using a single shade, you can even mix and match the colours since they blend easily!
3. Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows
Liquid eyeshadows may sound daunting, but they are actually really good for beginners! This dual-ended one features a matte hue on one side and a glittery shade on the other end. All you need to do is dot the formula on to your lids and gently buff the colour in. I like using the matte colours as a base and the glittery ones just on the centre of my lids to get an eye-opening effect.
4. Revlon PhotoReady Eye Contour Kit
Once you are ready to dabble with eyeshadow palettes, you need to get your hands on this kit. The detailed packaging and step-by-step instructions will guide you so that you can get a perfectly contoured eye. If you prefer a natural look, stick to using the shadows as is. However, for more intensity, you can dampen your shadow brush before sweeping on the colours.
5. Urban Decay Naked2 Basics
You just can’t go wrong with this cult-favourite palette! With 6 neutral shades to play around with, this box is incredibly versatile. Stick to the lighter shades for a work-appropriate look and add the browns towards the outer end of your lids to smoke things up for the night. No matter which colours you choose, you can be sure that they will blend together beautifully.
