Very often I have to hear from my clients, by profession I am a makeup artist, negative reviews about loose shadows. The cause of displeasure is most often that crumbly shadows fall off when applied. Therefore, as part of this post, I will tell you how to apply friable shadows, so that they do not crumble. But first you need to decide on the shadows themselves.
Choosing Loose Shadows
In my opinion the most ideal are the shadows. Pupa polvere di luce extralight eyeshadow duo №09.
These are double friable shadows, one of which are satin shadows, and others – nacreous. Shadows have a light silky texture, due to which they are almost not felt before the eyes after application. The composition of pearl shadows includes the brilliance of a new generation, which in appearance resemble frost and shimmer very beautifully on the eyes, creating the effect of a transparent and crystal clear color.
These shadows can be applied individually or mixed. In this case, in the latter case, you get a sparkling and radiant makeup.
In addition, pearl shadows can be applied to any other shadows. I especially like their combination with dark gray or dark blue shadows. Since due to the pronounced contrast and intense radiance, the look becomes very expressive and radiant.
Among the advantages of these crumbly shadows, I would highlight the fact that they are excellent to hold on to the skin, even without using a base. Wherein Pupa polvere di luce allow you to get different depth and intensity of color depending on your desire.
Well, now let’s go directly to the application technology. I must say that crumbly shadows should be applied exclusively with your fingers. At the first acquaintance with friable shadows I tried to use applicators and brushes for their application. But in the first case, the shadows seemed to fall into foam rubber, and when applied to the eyelid they flew in different directions.
With the help of a brush, I also failed to apply friable shadows without blemishes, since they immediately crumbled on the face when touched to the eyelid. Therefore, I threw the applicators and brushes aside and began to apply friable shadows only with my fingers.
I tell all the points:
- Shake the jar thoroughly so that the lid inside it is covered with shadows. Then open the jar and collect the shadows on your finger, pressing it tightly against the lid.
- For insurance, you can gently blow on the finger, but usually the shadows stick very well to the finger the first time and do not fly away. In case the shadows on your finger stick up with flakes, you should press it again to the lid.
- After that, apply a shadow on the eyelid with a finger, patting, stamping movements.
This is what you should get as a result.
