3 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR EYESHADOW MORE PIGMENTED
Don’t have time to pick up new shadows with more pigment? In that case, don’t toss your current collection just yet. With a few tips and tricks, you can help the eyeshadow you have at home appear more pigmented.
TIP #1: USE AN EYE SHADOW PRIMER
As you probably know by now, applying an eye primer prior to eyeshadow can increase its lifespan. But did you know it can also help your eyeshadow colors appear more vibrant? Swipe one on as the first step in your makeup look. Don’t have a primer on-hand? A dab of concealer or foundation will do in a pinch.
TIP #2: LAYER ON A BASE
Aside from primer, there’s one other product you should be layering on before you reach for your eyeshadow—more eyeshadow. Specifically, a white eyeshadow will make all the difference. By brushing on a white eyeshadow before applying the other shades you wish to use, the colors will appear brighter and more saturated. Just be sure to coordinate your eyeshadow formulas!
TIP #3: WET YOUR BRUSH
Lastly, the way you apply your eyeshadow can influence how pigmented your shadow appears. Dampen your eyeshadow brush prior to dipping it into your shade of choice, then watch how much more pigmented your eyeshadow swipes on! Who knew?
