y eye shadow)!
I'd love it if some of you could give me some tips for applying my eye makeup! I've just recently gotten into high end makeup and taking the time to apply it well. I used to just apply blush, eye liner, and mascara. Here recently, I've been spending more time on my eyes (eye shadow, liner, mascara). I've been trying to do my eye makeup well, but I never can make it look the way I want it to. I try applying to my entire lid, then I use a darker shade in my crease and blend. The powder always flakes around the corner and under my eye and it gets so messy. Or, it just looks sloppy. Help!
You have some really great tips within your post from all the other beauty talkers I'll add that technique is really important to achieving a great eye look. You mentioned "flakes" and that your eye shadow looks "messy". Are you using windshield sweeper motions to applying your shadows? If so, try using a flat eye shadow brush, tapping off excess shadow, and using a pressing motion to apply your eye shadow which will help reduce the flakes and messiness.
Hope this helps,
