Each brush is shaped to know what to do
Different shapes, different purposes. Each of the brush is differently shaped due to a particular reason. Like the broader and sturdier ones are to be used for lids, the blending brush is used to make everything blend in together. Don’t focus on its sole purpose, use the brush according to what you think is a better fit for the task.
Perfect a nude look before graduating to bolder looks
This is one of the most important eye shadow tips you need to stick to if you are a new comer. First, try out perfecting the basic and neutral looks before going for smokey and bolder looks. Just make yourself an expert in neutral looks that seems like you haven’t done any makeup at all. Once perfection is attained, you are good to climb higher.
Remember your eye shape
Know your eye shape well before following tutorials. Not all eye shapes follow the same eyeshadow techniques. Following a tutorial that isn’t similar to your eye shape will only make your eyes look worse.
Blending doesn’t mean smashing everything together
Blending is an art. How you work one color into another like a gradient and instead of just layering over is important. The key is to first smooth out the transitions and hard lines before using a different color.

Blend in neutral
Stuck in a dramatic look where you think you have just spoiled the whole of your work? Well, nothing to worry. Just blend in a neutral skin toned over the darker portion to blend in. It will gradually make it look softer.
