By Amdanda DenBraber. Powder eye shadow can be used for many purposes. I always like to buy shadows that are free from Talc which is known to cause irritations and long term problems when inhaled. Be sure when picking a palette with more than 3 colors that you will use all of them.
Use more of a skin tone with a bit of shimmer for a highlighter on your cheekbone, temples, down the bridge of the nose and above your upper lip for a natural glow in the proper places. (Of course use a light hand in application )As well, use this in the inner corner of the eyes to grab more attention to your peepers.
An eye shadow that is lighter than your skin tone and matte will be great for covering up the uneven areas around the eye. If it’s a good texture, it could be doubled up as a powder to correct dark circles when you’re limited for products! The best use for the matte skin tone eye shadow is for your brow bone, to instantly lift your eye area and crisp up the definition of your brows.
Black matte or Charcoal matte works wonders on your brows if you have darker hair! Just a little bit on an angle brush with hair like strokes will fill in any sparseness. You may use it for lining your lashes for a soft amount of definition, add a little water or mixing fluid to create a more intense line and color and this will last longest as well.
A matte Brown can be used to define your eye socket. Use it on the outer half, blend or build the color as close to the last bit of your lashes to create more drama. When applying I like to add a little bit, then blend and repeat.
I hope this helps out a few readers!!
