How to apply Eyeshadow

Whether you opt for a traffic-stopping smokey eye or a subtle, feminine daytime look, here’s how to apply eyeshadow like a pro!


Classic purple-bronze eye for daytime

Step 1 - Sweep an eye shadow base over your entire eyelid. This will make the colour more prominent and the eye shadow last longer.

Tip: It’s best not to cover your entire eyelid with a darker shade – use the crease of your eyelid as a guide.

Step 3 - Cover the lower half of your eyelid with a dark brown shade up to the crease line, working outwards. Blend.

Tip: Brown eyes look great with almost any eye shadow colour, but you can make them pop by pairing a softer shade (such as purple) with a darker shade along the crease of the eye, followed by a dark liquid liner.

I think it also helps to always apply a concealer all over before applying eyeshadow and then setting that with powder gives you a good base and helps blend the eye shadows even more

Remember to not only apply mascara from root to tip but make small left right zigzag movements to get The most out of it. Great tips.

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.

I have done my 3rd Braun Silk-expert IPL treatment I have noticed the hairs on my legs are softer and finer and my arms are also a lot finer - I am loving it so much! I'm sure after a few more treatments the results will be even more amazing.
