Bright and shimmery or dark and mysterious, it is time to express your various moods with your eyes using Maybelline eyeshadow palettes. Switching up your eye makeup is one of the best ways to transform your makeup look and with the right kind of eyeshadow palette, you can add depth and drama to your eyes and make them more expressive. Maybelline has an extensive collection of eyeshadows so you can have fun with colours and create your own unique look. Whether you want a grungy rock and roll look for a night out with the girls or want something soft and romantic for a lunch date with your boo, there is an eyeshadow palette out there for you.
Here is a quick step by step guide to create a natural daytime look and a dark and smoldering night eyeshadow look. Before you start creating any eyeshadow look with one of the Maybelline eyeshadow palettes, remember to always prime your eyes. If you do not have an eyelid primer, you can use your favourite concealer or face primer to create a smooth and even base and cancel out any veins or redness on your eyelids. Once you have primed your lids, set the base using a powder foundation, loose finishing powder, or a light cream or beige shade from your eyeshadow palette. Now let’s get started!
1. To create a simple blushed toned or warm and nude shimmery look, use the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette or the Maybelline 24K Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. If you want a deeper and more dramatic look, opt for the Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette or the Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette. These eyeshadow kits by Maybelline have 6 or 12 specially curated, highly versatile, and easy to wear eyeshadow shades that you can use to create endless looks. The creamy eyeshadow powders are soft and smooth and blend like a dream, making it perfect for even absolute beginners.
2. Using a fluffy brush, apply a transition shade to the crease of your eyelid. Depending on the colour scheme of your look, the transition shade can be light brown, ochre, soft pink, mauve, etc. Use small circular motions to blend the colour in your crease.
3. Next, choose a light matte or shimmery lid shade from any of the Maybelline eye palettes and apply it all over your lid. Use your finger for the shimmers or glitters for a more pigmented application. Metallic grey or silver, shimmery rose gold, copper, bronze, deep greens, and so much more – the Maybelline eyeshadow palettes have an eyeshadow shade for your every mood.
4. Using a small and dense brush, pick up a darker eyeshadow shade and apply it to the outer corner of your eye to increase the intensity of your eye makeup look. Blend this colour seamlessly with your crease and eyelid shade.
If you are a beginner, we recommend starting with your eye makeup before you move on to foundation and the rest of your face makeup as it will be easier for you to correct any mistakes or dust away the eyeshadow fallout. To complete the rest of your makeup, choose a blush and lipstick shade that complements your eye look. Avoid using bold and bright colours on both your eyes and your lips, this will make your makeup look loud and gaudy.
