Your eye makeup holds the power to take your makeup game up to another level. But if you are new to the game, eyeshadow application can be a bit intimidating. How do you even decide what colors to go for? Or what kind of brushes you need to have in your vanity?
If you’re a beginner I feel like this guide is going to be perfect for you. We have put together a foolproof guide to help you apply eyeshadow like a pro.
What brushes do I need for eyeshadow?
Eyeshadow could be a little bit daunting if you’re trying to apply eyeshadow and you go into the store and you’re trying to find brushes you have no idea what to pick so I’m gonna give you three basic eyeshadow brushes that I think you need to have in your collection.
1.Large Blending Brush
The first one that you see here are some couple different variations but these are large blending brushes they’re gonna be your base brush to kind of blend everything output color all over your lid.
2.Tapered Blending Brush
The next one is a tapered blending brush again you are like why do these look kind of similar they are sort of similar but these are gonna be a little bit smaller these are still gonna give you a little bit of blend but they’re also going to be a little more precise.

The one on the far right is your larger blending brush and the one on the smaller is your more tapered blending brush.
as you can see when you do a side-by-side the large blending brush is just a little bit fluffier it’s gonna apply color on a larger scale versus the tapered blending brush that’s gonna give you a little bit more pointed more precise color into the crease area.
so you want to focus that large blending brush more for all-over placement and then the smaller tapered brush for more precise placement The last brush I would recommend would be a flat shader brush.
3. Flat shader brush
So many brands make so many different variations these are a few that I have in my collection but a flat shader brush is basically going to put the color onto the lid and that is a brush that I find to be a very easy brush to find anywhere, so when it comes down to it I truly think that you could get away with these three brushes.
What is a good eyeshadow palette for beginners?
Whatever eyeshadow palettes you have will work perfectly fine. Although the NARS skin deep eyeshadow palette is the one I chose because I do like that it has a lot of matte shades and it has those larger pan sizes.
When you’re looking at your eyeshadow palette there’s a couple of things that I like to recommend that you look for:
1.Brow Bone shade
It’s going to be a very light cream shade or even something with a little bit of a satin finish. this shade is just going to enhance your more highlighted areas like your brow bone or your inner corner. It’s always good to have something like this because I do find that it helps kind of open up the eyes even if you pop it right on the lid.
Transition shade is going to be something that is very similar to your skin tone or most likely the next color or next step up from your brow bone shade, you want something that is light enough to run all over your lid but still just a little bit of color so you can see that there’s a little bit of shade difference.
The crease color is very dependent on what you would like to use in “ NARS skin deep eyeshadow palette” there’s a couple of different variations in here that you could definitely choose from.
just from looking at it I would say the two middle ones could be something you could use in the crease and even so that darkest chocolate brown that you have down.
When you’re looking at an eyeshadow palette keep that in mind it’s good to have a brow bone shade a transition shade and crease shade.
Let’s take for example the “Naked honey palette”
