Cosmetics / Makeup Tip: Lining eyes with eyeshadow

submitted by Kiara Buchanan

Instead of using eyeliner to highlight the eyes, you can use eyeshadow and get a very precise line that makes the eyes pop.

Use a dark shade of eye shadow and an angled brush. You can use cosmetic brushes, but craft brushes work just as well.

Wet the brush thoroughly, get some powder on both sides of the wet brush. Apply shadow using dabbing motions along lower lid just below the eyelashes.

The angle of the brush allows for very precise placement of the color.

Do the same thing for upper lids. This gives you a long-lasting narrow band of color with more precision than you can get with even the sharpest eye pencil, yet looks more natural than liquid eyeliner.

Easy to do, looks great. I was able to use eyeshadows I had around that were too dark as an overall shade for my lids, but great as liners.
