How to Apply Eyeshadow Properly Like a Pro: Step by Step (Video Tutorial)

In this article, we are bringing you three of the best DIY eyeshadow tutorials for beginners – to teach you a step by step process of basic techniques to properly apply eyeshadow correctly, for a wedding or for a simple everyday look.  When eyeshadow is applied well, you should look like yourself, only like a polished version, and not look over-made-up. We hate it when a bride looks like a masquerade on an important day such as her wedding; the day she is supposed to look like a princess. We’ve heard many men tell us how they did not recognize their brides on the wedding day (because she was over-painted).

Hopefully, after watching these videos, you will feel confident to glam up your eyes for your trad wedding, even if you can’t find a good makeup artist in the village venue of your traditional wedding. So, watch the 3 eyeshadow video tutorials below, and follow along to practice the techniques on your eyes.

Things You’ll Need to Do Your Eyeshadow Correctly

Here is everything you need to do your eyeshadow:

  1. Eyeshadow primer
  2. Eyeshadows – a light colour eye shadow and a dark colour eye shadow (preferably a 4-shade eyeshadow pallete or a 2-shade eyeshadow pallete). Popular brands of eyeshadow in Nigeria include: mary kay, mac eyeshadow, naked eyeshadow palette, nyx, maybelline eyeshadow, tara, BMPro, urban decay.
  3. Eyeshadow brush: An eyeshadow brush (You can use your index finger to apply color if you don’t have a makeup brush). – use is to apply eyeshadow over the lid. You can also use the tip of the brush to apply eyeshadow under the lower lash line, or to create a very defined line in the crease of the eye. The best use for the Eye Shader brush is for packing color onto the eye lid.
  4. A Blending brush: A clean brush for blending the colours.
  5. Eyeliner
  6. Mascara
  7. 10 Minutes of your time
