3. Make Your Eyeshadow Pop
Sometimes you don’t realise that your eyeshadow isn’t looking as bright as you want it to. This is all part of the colour theory about makeup but it’s a common problem. What you can do to make your eyeshadow pop more is, apply a white kohl pencil on your eyelids after the primer and blend it. Once done, you can then apply your regular eyeshadows to get that fun pop of colour we all need.
4. Apply Your False Eyelashes Like A Pro
If you are someone who uses fake eyelashes, don’t rush to apply it as soon as you put glue on it. What you can do instead is wait for 30 seconds for the glue to dry and then stick it on your eyes to keep the strip from sliding and it can escalate the dry time on lids.
5. Use Eyeshadow As Eyeliner
If you have ever been in a situation where your makeup got empty and you didn’t know what to do this hack will save you from the eyeliner situation at least. In case you want to apply eyeliner but you’ve run out of it, take your eyeshadow palette and choose the darkest colour. Now with the help of a flat pointed brush apply the eyeshadow like eyeliner but don’t slide it, instead tap it.
