Beauty Tip: Making Eyeshadows Pop!

Hello Dahlings! Today I am going to share a quick AND easy tip on making your eyeshadow pop. It's so easy, that you don't even need a brush, and so quick that it takes less than 1 minute for both your eyes to be officially POPPING!

Here is my left eye all made up in a bronzey "ensemble". Looks good, right? 

But now, look at it side by side with my right eye that I did the little quick and easy trick to (and which you are about to learn!!!):

The right eye looks even better, don't you agree? It's popping, leaving the left eye looking a bit blah and overlooked.

What I did is simple, yet creates a drastic effect on your eyeshadow look.
I simply used my clean ring finger (no need for brushes) to add some of this golden shadow only to the center of my lid, where I felt my eyeball protruding the most. I just dabbed in all directions (to blend) only in that center area.

That's it!

Doing this little trick attracts light (causing light to reflect in that area) and adds some glimmer and light to your eyes! 

And you can use any lighter color you want. It doesn't have to be in the same color family like I did. By the way, that bronze shadow under the golden one is the one I had on my lids prior to jazzing them up!

Let's look at both eyes now that they are both standing out:

Yup, that's definitely prettier.

 Oh...and because I've been told that I tend to look a bit snooty when not smiling, here is a big smile from my computer to yours!

Happy eye popping! Wait, that sounds painful. Let's try this again...Happy eye dazzling!!!

you look gorgeous! Sometimes brown eyeshadow makes me look washed out. Especially lately because of my lack of sleep. I love that palette though:)
