You want to know these eye shadow hacks

The countdown has begun! But before we close 2019, there is often a fancy dinner with an extravagant outfit. And, you often want to adjust your makeup to that. That's why four eye shadow hacks in a row.

1. Make your eyelids oil free

Oil is the enemy of your eye makeup. Before applying eye shadow, it is important that you first thoroughly clean your eyelids. Grab a tissue or cotton pad and blot your eyelids. Then grab an eye primer and pat the primer on your eyelids with your ring finger.

2. Go for golden and bronze-colored shades

Gold and bronze are neutral shades, which often look a bit less 'intense' (nice if you hardly ever wear eye shadow). Apply some golden eyeshadow on your eyelids and the inner corners of your eyes. Fill with a darker color your outer corners of the eye and arcade arch. If you feel comfortable with a warm neutral look, you can also go for other shades such as silver or burgundy.

3. Wet your eyeshadow

Metallics in particular are sometimes difficult to work with. Make your brush slightly wet, making the eye shadow more fluid and easier to apply.

4. Choose length over volume

If you have killer eyes, go for long instead of bulky eyelashes. You want your eyelashes to form a whole and not that they 'compete' with your eye shadow. So choose a mascara that 'lengthens' your eyelashes for beautiful bambi eyes.
