The Tuesday Tip: Striking Shadow

Even the the most striking, highly pigmented eyeshadow can appear dull or different in colour when applied to the skin. However there is a foolproof way of ensuring that an eyeshadow stands out and remains vibrant at all times. Now one trick is to wet the brush before applying the eyeshadow, however creating a white base on the eyelid is even more effective.

Using a white eye pencil, simply cover the entire eyelid - blending the colour out into the other areas you may want to apply eyeshadow. Once this is done, just apply your eyeshadow as normal.

Any white eye pencil will do, however I would recommend the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk 5g (£9.00 very.co.uk / $4.49 ULTA). It is soft, easily blendable and is double the size of a standard eye pencil - enabling you to apply the product quickly, without pulling on the eye area too much.
