Posted: Sep 21, 2017
Blending your eye-shadows are no doubt one of the most tricky workouts in Makeup Courses. In addition to that Makeup courses in Singapore often take more emphasise on the Eye-shadow shapes and color.
In this post, I have put together all the Eye-shadow shapes and colors using different styles and Makeup Techniques. With familiarity with these shapes and colors will give a perfect idea of how to shape the Eye-shadow and with what color.
Let’s get started with it,
Learning Eye-shadow Shapes
These shapes are the basic shapes that everyone should know if you’re enrolling for Makeup courses in Singapore.
- FAN SHAPE: Fan Shape is also known as "Divided in Third". In this shape, the yellow is the lightest color, orange cover the middle ground and brown is the darkest of them all. This is the most flattering for every eye shape, especially if your eyes are close together. Having the lighter shade on the inside of the eyes makes them appear farther apart. To do this look, use your flat stiff brush and pat each color on. Make sure to blend between each color so there are no harsh lines.
- SMOKY EYE: This is the most popular look. To have that, you need simply pat a dark color all over the lower lid using a flat and stiff brush. Then, next, you need a soft dome brush with either medium or light color and blend out the crease area to soften this incredible look.
- CAT EYE: The Cat Eye look can be done either by eyeliner or eye-shadow depending on your choice. With eye-shadow, it will give you a softer look which most of the females prefer including me.
Choosing The Right Eye-shadow Color
Generally, the standard number of Eye-shadow color needed to achieve a look is 4.
Some of the colors are:
- Light Shimmery Color: This color is used under the brow bone as a highlight shade and the inner tear duct for a pop of brightness.
Light Matte Finish Color: This color is used under the brow bone to soften any harsh lines.
Medium Color: This color is used in the crease to blend out harsh lines.
Dark Color: This color is used on the lower lashline or outer part of the eye. This can also be used under the lashline to create a smokey effect.
In The End
So, these are the basic Eye-shadow shapes and colors that are commonly practices in the Professional Makeup Artist Courses. I hope this article will help you to understand the tenets of Eye-shadow shapes and colors.
