Method 1: with Fingers

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. My name is Kara and in today's video I will show you how to apply your eyeshadow using your fingers. If you happen to be in a situation where you don't have any sponges - any special sponges that normally come together with your eyeshadows - or if you don't have any brushes, then you absolutely have to do your make-up and the only thing you can use are your fingers, then this tutorial is for you.

Steps

  1. 1
    Okay, so, when you have to apply eyeshadows with your fingers, you don't want to be using a matte shadows because first they are very difficult to be blended and blushed even with using brushes.

    And it will look really bad if you try to apply it with the eyeshadows, so I would recommend you to use shimmery eye shadows.
    In my case it is a golden palette of bourgeois and khaki colors,

    Let's start.
    So for smaller areas of application, like for the light color, I'm going to be using my smallest finger.

    The shimmery colors are good to use when you're not good at blending and brushing.
    The same thing I'm doing with my other eye, just applying this color all over the eyelid.

    I am just using my matte eyeshadow mocha coffee palette.
    Okay, so now I have a shot glass of water right here.

    When you do that please - when you need to make your - when you want to make your brush wet, do not try to lick it or do anything like this because you might end up with bacteria growing in your brush, so you just dip it in the water.
    Now, I need to use the lighter color.

  6. 6
    But when you're working with a wet brush, do not just go crazy over the palette because when you put the moist, the water on it, the next time when you want to use it dry it's not going to be the same any more.
    It's not going to work for you. So with a wet brush, we'll be using just the corner - like less than a quarter of the eyeshadow.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-2-of-4 Wet Brush.mp4-canvas132 697791.jpg

  9. 9
    If you can see the eyeshadows look more shiny, have more shimmer, and it's a brighter color.
    I will show you on the dark sample, so you could see it better. Okay. Now, I'm taking another brush - a big blending brush.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-2-of-4 Wet Brush.mp4-canvas185 31458.jpg

  10. 10
    And I will just dip it in the dark color and you can see how the when you apply it dries.

    So, it looks black on your palette, but actually when you apply it becomes grey colour.
    So blend it up all over the eyelid, the areas that you need to blend it.

  13. 13
    And let's do the same thing with the other side.
    Go on the wrinkle line, all the way. Blend it up so that there is no spots.

  14. 14
    So this what I have here.
    I applied it using dry brush.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  15. 15
    And now you will see what happens when you make your brush wet.
    I'm dipping this one in the water.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-2-of-4 Wet Brush.mp4-canvas282 477825.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  16. 16
    And again, using just the very corner of the black shadows - I don't want them to get bad, I want to be able to use then in future.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-2-of-4 Wet Brush.mp4-canvas295 504458.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  17. 17
    Now, look what happens.
    I have a very deep, very black color right here. And it did not sit well, but I'm going to use the brush to blend it up properly.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-2-of-4 Wet Brush.mp4-canvas318 965541.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  18. 18

  19. 19
    It's actually pretty difficult to blend a wet shadow, especially when you're using dark colors, but it's also very convenient.
    You could be having two palettes and one intensive and dark color, or you could save money on it and just use the same one by applying it in a different way. So I'm dipping my - I made my brush wet again, and I'm going to dip it in the black shadows for my second eye.

    I would like to complete the eyeshadow work and add some on the bottom line, also using little brush.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  24. 24

    You would never be able to reach such a deep result - get such a deep colour - if you were using just a dry regular dry brush.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  26. 26
    Okay, so the eyeshadow work is done and I would recommend you, I mean you might want to get your eyes more like bright, you might want to use the black eye-liner on top right on your lash line and also if you want to put some mascara on your lashes to make your eyes bigger.

Method 4: with a Q-Tip

Hello and you are watching VisiHow. My name is Kara.

Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas0.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    In today's video I will teach you how to apply eyeshadow using the regular Q-Tip.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas11 096403.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    You can use this Q-Tip, if you are in a situation where you don't have a special eyeshadow sponges or brushes for applying the eyeshadow.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas24 559423.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    This is what I am doing; when I get the eyeshadow with the Q-Tip, this is how I am applying it, wiping it over eyeshadow and while wiping I am rolling it back and forth to get enough eyeshadow on it.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas49 425271.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Shake it just like I do with the eye brushes you would have watched me in one of my previous videos.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas57 623052.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    I just wipe it on; of course it is not going to be perfect, it is not the same as applying with the brushes.
    As you can see there is a spot here which I wipe it off basically blend in the direction where I need that highlight on.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas77 587794.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Do the same thing again with the Q-Tip.
    Roll it and apply it on the other eye.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    In the spot where you can see, it doesn't start very smoothly, I am rubbing it away down the eyebrow.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas112 191503.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    The same thing goes in the inner corner of my eye.
    Because our Q-Tip is hard it scraps off the eyeshadow, and you end up applying more than you need, and it doesn't apply very smoothly or evenly.

    You have to pay an extra attention towards blending, so it doesn't look too mad.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas161 583605.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  10. 10
    Next step, I am using the same with the brown color from the same pallet.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas176 264913.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  11. 11
    Just do like I do previously, I am going to scrape this off to take some color on the contour of the Q-pad and in the center to cover the Q-Tip.
    Just like this you can see the Q-Tip is covered with the shadow.
    Apply Eyeshadow with METHOD-3-of-4 Q-Tip.mp4-canvas200 180645.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  12. 12
    I am applying gently, feathering over my eye lid and rolling the Q-Tip.
    I am applying it all the way towards my wrinkle line.

  13. 13
    Do the same procedure with the other eye.
    Just feather it up to blend any imperfection spot that you are having.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  15. 15
    To finish up that look for your eyes, I recommend that you take the contour pencil, the eye liner and just draw a line right next to your natural lash line.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  16. 16
    I am going to extend it just a tiny bit there; you got to do it with your eye open for more natural look.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  18. 18
    Again the eye extension has to be done with your eye open.
    Otherwise it is not going to look very natural.

  20. 20
    Again I will take a new Q-Tip to blend up the eye liner using the Q-Tip for a softer look.
    Roll it up and mix it a little bit with my brown eyeshadow.

    If we have sensitive eyes, you probably prefer to use your fingers to apply the eyeshadow, which you can watch in one of my other videos.
