How to make eyeshadows pop

How To Make Eyeshadow Pop

Sometimes you buy an eyeshadow, because it looks great in the pan. That teal or the amazing duo chrome eyeshadow you picked, somehow does not look the same on your eyelids. And that is so disappointing. But fear not, I know a tip to make eyeshadow pop.

This happens for multiple reasons. Maybe the eyeshadow is not pigmented enough. Or maybe you need a primer. In most cases though using a base will help the eyeshadow color to pop.

Things you will need

  • Your favorite eyeshadow, preferably a vibrant one that needs more pop on your eyelids
  • A white eyeliner

Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review

For the longest time, I would buy lipsticks and lip products. Then I started with eyeshadows, singles or duos. My logic for not buying palettes was that I would not use up all the colors. Or that I just like a few colors. I won't be able to carry off the bold colors the palette includes etc. But once I got my first palette, I was hooked. In effect, one palette in my collection I want to share today is the Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Eyeshadow Palette.

Sephora website says it is “A coveted, professional eyeshadow palette that can be …

Do you like mini palettes? I loved huge eyeshadow palettes. Don't get me wrong. I still do. But there is something special about a mini palette with your favorite eyeshadow shades. When I heard that Urban Decay was coming out with a Naked3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette, I wanted it. I did not buy the Urban Decay Naked3 Original Palette, so it made sense to me to buy the mini one.

The Sephora website says this is “A mini vegan eyeshadow palette that is inspired by the fan-favorite Naked3 Palette.” It features six new rosy-neutral eyeshadows.
