Eddie Malter, L'Oréal Paris Canada's expert makeup artist, firmly believes that "When it comes to makeup, there is no set rule for how you should apply it". Lipstick on your cheeks, foundation on your lips, lip gloss on your eyelids... the only limit is your imagination!
Here at Get the Look, we enjoy playing around with the tools in our beauty bag in order to discover different ways to shake up our makeup routine. Today, we've chosen to focus on eyeshadow. The good news is, all you'll need are a few drops of water and an application brush. Ready to go?
Our beauty journalist's latest obsession is the 4-shade Luminous Ombré palette by L'Oréal Paris, so she decided to experiment and see what different, highly-pigmented effects she could achieve using her eyeshadow!
1. Under the eye
This season, under-eye liner is one of our favorite makeup trends. For an intense look like the one in the photograph, wet an angled eyeshadow brush then dip it into the darkest shade of eyeshadow in your palette. Starting from the outer corner of your under-eye, glide your brush towards the inner corner. The water will transform the eyeshadow into an iridescent and durable liquid liner. You'll love it!
2. The inner corner
One of the best ways to bring radiance to your expression involves applying iridescent eyeshadow at the inner corner of the eye. To increase the eyeshadow's pigmentation, dip it in the water, then the eyeshadow (as previously). Apply the angled brush to the inner corner and lightly spread the color so that it blends seamlessly with the rest of your makeup. Say goodbye to looking tired!
3. Over the eyelid
One of the most beautiful makeup trends this season has been the halo look. Characterized by eyeshadow applied over the entire eyelid (not above the crease line) as well as under the lower lashes, this look has an 'aura' effect. Choose the middle shade of color from your Luminous Ombré palette, wet the brush, then dip into the eyeshadow. Apply over the entire lid - just not above the crease - then take a clean brush and lightly blend. Keep your lashes natural to complete the look.
So, are you ready to rediscover your eyeshadow?
