How to Apply Loose Eyeshadows

Loose eyeshadows are raw ingredients. They aren't baked like pressed eyeshadow, which means that the pigment of these eyeshadows are super strong and will create a much more dramatic look. Applying loose eyeshadows can be very messy and frustrating if you don't use it right. The application method and size/type of makeup brushes play a big part in the end results. The bigger the brush, the softer the color. The smaller the brush, the darker the color. Also, it is highly recommended to use flat Makeup brushes for a much cleaner application. When I use loose eyeshadows, I start by applying the Eyeshadows on the eyelid before anything else. If in your application you use both kinds  of eyeshadows (loose and  pressed), apply the pressed eyeshadow first, & then the Loose Eyeshadow. When I'm done with the eye application, I clean the face with wipes or makeup remover and then apply the rest of the makeup. eyelid application before anything else. 


Applying Loose Eyeshadows: Dry
Because it’s a loose eyeshadow, if you don't use it right it will create a mess, not only on your face, but everywhere! The best way to apply it is by first softly pulling the outer corner of your eye (temple). Then, using the brush in dabbing motions - always in the same direction - and apply from the outer corner of your eye to the inner corner (like a teardrop). This will create a clean, even, long-lasting look.

Using Loose Eyeshadows: Wet 
Make your brush slightly wet & softly pull on the outer corner of your eye (temple). Then, using the brush in a stroke motion - always in the same direction - and apply from the outer corner of your eye to the inner corner (like a teardrop).  Making the loose eyeshadow wet will create a beautiful  metallic look that can be used as a beautiful eyeshadow, eyeliner, or lipstick.
