How To Get The Brightest Colors To Pop On Your Eyeshadow

The first thing that comes to your mind might be primer, right. No! Primer is good for eyeshadow but I only use concealer because it really makes the color brighter. I use concealer then set it with a powder. It does not matter what powder you use. Just set your eye. You do not want a wet base. 

Next, you want to really dig into that eyeshadow. (lol) When I use the bright pink colors, I dig so I have a lot of powder on my brush and it always comes out super bright. (dig,dig,dig)

Lastly, do not swipe the color on your eye. If you are looking to get a bright color then you have to pat the color on your eye. Trust me, there is a huge difference between the two. 

Why I Choose Bright Colors Over The Basics

When I say basics, I am talking about the brown, tan, black, neutral shades. I have one full palette with those colors. The palette is the Morphe 3502 Palette. I love the palette because they have colors you wear everyday and for any occasion. 

I have many palettes with bright colors because I love the rainbow. (lol) I am in love with all bright colors because they pop! They bring out your eyes and make you stand out. You can also do a lot like mix different colors together, you can get different Ombre looks, and much more. I like that the colors let you express your artistic side even if you are not a artist. To be honest, if you do makeup then you are a artist.


Guess What Happened During This Look…

I really liked this look but my eyes kept watering. I got so mad and right after I took my last picture my eye started watering so I stopped there. The first picture tells you to always trust the process. The second pic is the finished look and the last pic is when y eyes started watering. I do love how the look came together though!

The Real Me

I don’t think you guys have really seen me, other than in my contact picture or my makeup pics. I just do parts of my face so that is all I show. I wanted to share this picture because we all have flaws. No one is perfect. I had a really good day today and wanted to wear a bright shirt with a neutral face and killer brows!

*How I Create My Eyeshadow Looks*

  • I really like doing these kinds of looks. I am gonna do many more because I like bright colors together. Once again, I only used concealer for my primer. I tried eye primer a few times but once I ran out, I got lazy and looked up other ways to make your eyeshadow brighter. Now I only use concealer.
  • When I am thinking of ways to do my eyeshadow, I literally just throw a color on my eye and then think, what other colors can I match it with? That is how I create my makeup. It doesn’t always work out.
  • I had some looks that were so bad that I just gave up after 40minutes of trying to do my eyeshadow. I get mad a lot if I mess up because I hate restarting after a long time. One big mess up that still gets me is overdoing my eyeliner. I would try to put a thin liner on my eyelid and then I see a part I need to fill and it just gets too thick. I would just give up. Now I am getting better with patience. 🙂

Everyday Items I Use On My Face

Here are my everyday items plus some new items that I use on my face. Here they are…

  • Fit Me Foundation-( This is my favorite foundation ever. It drys really good and has a matte finish. You can get this foundation everywhere. I get mine at Walmart.)
  • Maybelline Concealer-( “The thin bottle”. I just picked this up yesterday because I have not used it in so long. I use to wear this concealer in high school and it still works perfectly.)
  • Pro Concealer-( This concealer should be the number one concealer ever because it is perfect. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t use this product. It is thick and the best cover-up. You can get these at Ulta, your local hair stores and other places.)
  • AOA Setting Powder-( I ordered the setting powder from shopmissa for one dollar. I like the product because it sets your face but also highlights it at the same time.)
  • Bronzer-( I love wearing bronzer. I also use it to set my face. I got the bronzer from shopmissa for one dollar and it works so good.)

How To Highlight

The key to highlighting or if I can create a world “Highlightzation” (LOL) is to get the highlight on the angle parts of your face. For example…

  • Angles of your cheeks
  • The line of your nose
  • On top of your brows ( Sometimes )
  • Under your brow
  • On top of your lip

Every single one of those examples will make your face pop with highlight!

 

How To Get a Perfect Photo With an iPhone

  • I used a picture of a look that I created today for an example. I use an iPhone 7 to take all my pictures. I do not use any high-end cameras, or any extra lighting to take my pictures. I use the sunlight. I am in college so I can not buy high-end equipment for my pictures yet. I literally stand in front of my window and take my pictures. iPhones have really amazing cameras but the iPhone 7 has amazing HD cameras. It is all about timing. (LOL)
