Rwanda : How to apply eye shadow according to your skin colour
To women, make up is an essential and routine before leaving home for work or other places. Ladies in Rwanda, like other countries, appreciate their beauty by enhancing their facial looks.
Since it is an essential, eye shadow shouldn’t be intimidating. Applied properly, it can be one of the most foolproof steps in your beauty routine.
These five steps show an easy way to create a perfect subtle look.
What You Need
Light, neutral eye shadow, dark eye shadow, round eye shadow brush
Run eye shadow brush over light colour
Start with two colours, a neutral colour and a darker shade. Run your brush over the light, neutral shade and tap off any excess shadow.
Tip: You can use your index finger to apply colour if you don’t have a brush.
Apply light shadow to lid
Apply the colour across the entire lid from the lash line to just above the crease (fold), sweeping upward toward the brow (without going as high as the brow).
Run brush over darker colour, tapping to remove excess
Sweep your brush over the darker eye shadow, and be sure to tap off any excess before applying.
Apply dark shadow to crease
To create contour, start by applying shadow at the outer corner of the eye just above the top lashes. Then sweep it along the eyelid where the brow bone hits the crease, moving the brush in a half-moon from the outer corner of the eye inward toward the center of the eyelid. (Don’t darken the innermost part of the eyelid.) Sweep the brush back and forth several times to blend.
Tip: To intensify colour, repeat with more shadow.
Repeat steps one through four on the other eye
Follow the same steps for the other eye, remembering to tap off excess shadow each time you dip your brush.
