11 Ways to Intensify Eyeshadow

Often we buy a shadow and end up with what we did not expect, the shadow does not show up very well on your skin tone, or the color does not look true to the palette, in that case do not get disheartened, and shove the shadow at the end of your stash drawer, use these simple tips to make the most of the palette and help the color show up on the lips in a much more intense way than you had expected.


Eyeshadow Primer:

Invest in a shadow primer, UDPP or Too faces or the Mac ones, you could buy a simple one as Jordana or the Bh cosmetics one, these work fine as they set from a creme to a dry finish making your lids a perfect canvas for the color to show up and stick to, so it comes out darker.


Wet brush:

WE see many baked products dont look too well, but use them with a wet brush, or else use your regular shadows with a damp brush so the color comes out at least twice as dark, the fall out is lesser and then the shadow also lasts longer.

Cream Liner:

All your colored or black cream liners will come in handy, line your eyes roughly and then quickly smudge it with ring finger and a brush, this will dry up and give you an amazing darker base, and will last forever, also you could use corresponding colors.

Concealer or foundation base

Though the oils in the concealer would melt down your shadow, but conceal or apply foundation, then lightly powder the lids, then go for your eyeshadow application.


Inglot duraline is one product you need to have to work with little dryer gel products, but apply very lightly onto the shadow brush and then dip the brush into the shadow, it works superb.


Paint pots

Mac paint pots or else the maybelline color tatto, these apply from a creme to dry finish, and do not budge so these are the best base for your shadow, you could even use colored ones to correspond to the shadow.
