32 Eyeshadow Tutorials for Beginners
As I was doing my eye makeup this morning, I realized how hard it was to apply eyeshadow, especially as a beginner. Those eyeshadow looks weren’t just a round shape of brown on top of your eyelid. They were many different hues of brown or blues to make that smokey eye. I remember watching so many Youtube videos and searching Pinterest for eye makeup pictures. I didn’t know how to do eye makeup at home and all the looks said easy but I couldn’t understand. Thankfully, I ended up finding some that were actually simple and explained really well how to apply eyeshadow for beginners step by step.
I gathered some eye makeup tips and looks from my earlier days and some that will help any beginner learn how to do apply a simple eye look for the first time.
