1. Shadows instead of eyeliner
The method known to every girl is to bring the eyelids with shadows instead of a liner. If you like bright arrows, then you need to moisten the eyeliner brush with water, tonic or make-up fixing spray - only wet shadows give rich color on the eyelids.
2. Shadows instead of lipstick
You can easily create the most extraordinary lipstick shade with two simple products: a clear lip balm and loose eyeshadow.
Remember, the finer the grind on your eyeshadow, the smoother and more comfortable the texture of your new lipstick will be.
Using a clean surface, carefully mix a small amount of balm or lip gloss with a pinch of eye shadow. The more shadows you add, the more intense the lipstick will get.
3. Shadows instead of contouring powder
Any shadows are just finely ground powder, which can be successfully used for face makeup if the shade is chosen correctly. For example, matte taupe shadows are usually applied in the crease of the eyelid to make the look more expressive.
4. Shadow instead of eyebrow pencil
Eyeshadow is a great alternative to brow pencil if you find a shade or two darker than your hair. Comb your brows and use an angled brush to apply shadow in short strokes to fill in the shape of your brows. After the work is finished, fix the result with a transparent or tinted gel.
