A lot of makeup beginners can be intimidated by eyeshadow. Look at Instagram, and you’ll see nuanced looks, gradients, layers of color, and glitter. Those eyeshadow effects look more difficult than they are.
If you want a natural look, you can do so with some simple neutral shadows to subtly add a pop of color without the over-the-top glam.
But just because an eye makeup look is simplistic doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Do you want to know how to quickly do great eyeshadow makeup? Read this blog to learn!
If you are a sparkling golden girl in the summer or a glamorous bronze girl in the fall, the metallic theme is still in season and in style. It takes just a few minutes and a couple of essential items to achieve this all-over glow.
Start with the darkest eye palette of metal on a three-toned eyeshadow palette. Highlight with the lightest shade the brow bone and inner eye corner.
Finish your look by applying a shiny powder and gold-powdered lip gloss to your lips.
Would you want to go metallic any easier? Into the inner corners of the eyes, blend a gold shadow.
Three words: Pink glossy lids.
Simply place a soft pink hue on your lid and add a face lipstick, like Milk Makeup, to improve it a little more. Apply gloss if in doubt.
You can quickly get a shiny eye look without having to make new beauty purchases using transparent lip gloss— one you have double-checked it is healthy for your skin.
Using a thick brush with eyeshadow to add a wet look to life with a lip gloss on top of the eye shadow.

This look is not for shrinking violets. This begins with a stunning winged eye. Line the top lash line and punch it out with a black liquid liner. It can take a while to spread uniformly, but you can easily cover a jagged line by having it a little thicker.
If your taste is dark, gray liner can be an excellent middle ground, even under the lower lattice edge, for a smokey eye update. Top your eyewear off with a mascara that stretches, curves and curls. The final touch is a ruby lip.
To achieve the most saturated effect, go to a moisturizing lipstick. Or use a lip gloss that is easier to apply. (And good hair always helps the look).
Bonus Look: Use Blush as Eyeshadow
If you’re looking only for a touch of eye color, dab an eyeshadow brush against a powder blush and gently apply it to your eyelids. Use your fingertips to smooth out a cream blush if you want to be brave with a heavy color pop.
It improves the look of your natural iris. If the look you think you want totally backfired tone it down a blunt shade with a light brown shadow over the color blush cover to soften the impact.
