How To Apply Eye Makeup Base

Great Day! Eye makeup base is used before you apply eye shadow color, to prevent the shadow from running and clumping in your crease and the wrinkles around your eyes. It also causes the eye shadow to last longer and prevents those little sprinkles of powder that fall underneath your eyes.

Here's a few tips on how to apply eye cream or powdered eye shadow base:

Select an eye cream base or powdered form eye shadow base. Choose a color that closely resembles your own skin tone. There are both light and dark shades available so test a variety of base colors before settling on the right one.

Tap your middle or ring finger into your eye base makeup cream. If you are using a powder base, use a regular eye shadow brush.

Apply the base gently with your ring finger, middle finger, or eye shadow brush all over your eyelid, in the crease and all the way up to your brow bone. If you are using a cream, ensure it's rubbed in completely.

Gently blend the base well with your skin, so that it doesn't look like you are wearing obvious color making sure to avoid a visible line. The base should lighten your eyes and brighten them, but not color them dramatically.

Check your application in natural light. If it appears that you have applied too much base, and then rub it off gently with a tissue paper or a new brush.
