If you’re anything like me, then doing your makeup is tricky business. Let’s just say, I’m a bit clumsy with the eyeliner! Fortunately, we’ve got some super helpful tips for you today courtesy of gorgeous YouTube beauty guru Stephanie Lange. Say goodbye to runny, chunky, and cakey-looking shadow—these really are some masterful tricks!
Did you know that even makeup pros like Stephanie have trouble applying their shadow? The YouTuber kicks off the video by explaining just how frustrating the process can be. She says, “You would think eyeshadow is pretty straightforward—you know, whack some eyeshadow on the lid, and you’re good to go. But, it’s not quite that simple.” Agreed!
In her video, the YouTuber does a great job highlighting how she gets her signature doe-eyed look. Just follow her simple steps, and you will achieve beautiful and dramatic-looking eyes, too.
Brush on a base
Stephanie stresses that using a base is the most fundamental step to achieving crease-free shadow. You can use a concealer, an eyeshadow primer, or even a foundation. Be sure to follow up the base with a powder so that it fully dries before the rest of the eye makeup is applied.
Apply shimmery shadow strategically
Shimmery shadow can help you create a stunning look, but the application can be a bit tough. Stephanie suggests only applying this type of shadow to the inner corners and the spaces under the brow lines. This placement will allow you to create a more “open” look.
