HOW TO BUY EYESHADOW:
Build a custom eyeshadow palette that includes highlighting, contouring, and variety of textures and finishes.
PLACEMENT: Consider these 4 primary areas around the eye to create a custom look:
✓ Brow Highlight
✓ Outer V + Lower Lash Line
COLOR: Select a few staple colors that can go with many looks, including the transition from daytime to evening wear.
✓ Highlighting colors are lighter colors that can be used to accentuate features, such as the brow bone, the inner corners of the eye or the center of the lid. Most common highlighting shadows are whites, creams, vanilla, peach, and soft pinks.
✓ Contouring colors are darker colors used to create depth or dimension, to create or enhance your crease, or to accentuate your eye shape. Common contouring shadows are browns, deep burgundy, greys, and blacks.
✓ Adding eyeshadow with texture, such as metallic and glitters will add impact to any look.
FINISH: Beauty Junkees Cosmetics offers 3 finish types.
✓ Matte: A matte finish creates depth and definition, as it does not reflect light. Matte eyeshadow has no sheen, luster or shine leaving you with a smooth, natural finish. You will get a more intense color payoff as matte finishes have more pigmented color.
✓ Matte Pearl: Matte Pearl is a combination of a matte finish and a subtle fleck of glitter leaving a soft satin finish.
✓ Pearlized: A frosty finish without glitter leaving an iridescent and brightening effect to any eye look.
