How to Use a Makeup Palette?

It's easy to get excited about each new release of a bright, sparkly, or shimmery eyeshadow palette, but how do you use them? That's a different story, especially if you already own your go-to eyeshadow palettes.

Cracking the color code, on the other hand, does not necessitate a degree in Art History or even makeup artist credentials. All you need are the appropriate eyeshadow brushes and the right color combination knowledge.

Continue reading for our step-by-step guide to using an eyeshadow palette, and get ready to swipe right.

Categories of color in Makeup palette:

While eyeshadow palettes may appear to be a kaleidoscope packed in a small box, even the most disorganized array of colors has order. 

Most eyeshadow palettes are divided into three color categories: light, medium, and dark shades.

Where to apply light eye colors?

Consider the lightest shades to be mini spotlights for the grand stage that is your makeup look.

The light shades should be applied to your brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes in the same way that our favorite highlighters are applied to the tops of your features. 

These are the areas that will reflect the most light, giving you brighter eyes and adding depth and interesting contrast to the darker shades that follow.

Where to Use Medium Eye Colors?

Medium shades are the key players in your eyeshadow palette. They can be used to build and create any makeup look, depending on how dramatic you want to be. 

A natural makeup look is based on medium color shades that are the same color as, or slightly darker than, your skin tone and are applied evenly across your entire lid.

Increase the dimension by applying the darker medium shades in the creases of your eyes with a smaller, tapered eyeshadow brush. Have some shimmery medium shades on hand? 

A tiny swab over the center of your lid is all you need to brighten up the makeup look. If you want a smokey eye, skip the lighter medium shades and go for the darker mediums.

Where Should Dark Eye Colors Be Used?

Liner and contour colors are the darkest colors in your eyeshadow palette. They'll take the most effort, but the payoff will be spectacular. 

For the perfect cut crease that gives the illusion of giant eyes, outline a V in the crease of your eye with the darkest colors.

Alternatively, take a break from your liquid eyeliner and apply the most pigmented color along your upper lash line for a fun pop of pigment.

How to Apply Eyeshadow Palettes to Get a Natural Look?

Going for a natural look doesn't mean you have to give up all of your fun and color. Get the best of both worlds with this palette, which combines neutral brown staples with gold and blush glitter shades. 

Nude 24 Eyeshadow shades by ver beauty are perfect for creating an everyday look.

First, apply an eyeshadow primer.

Don't let your natural oils cause creases or smudging in your eye makeup.

Apply an eyeshadow primer across your lids, using your fingers to dot along your upper lash line and up to your brow bone to save your best blending–and your time.

The best eyeshadow primers are lightweight formulas with a matte finish that allow your eyeshadows to shine.

Step 2: Create your foundation.

Use a neutral shade that is a few shades darker than your natural skin tone to achieve a natural look.

Spread a shade like "Charge" or "OTW" across your entire eyelid with your favorite fluffy eyeshadow brush.

Step 3: Sketch a crease.

Swap your fluffy brush for an eyeshadow brush with short, tapered bristles, and use a darker shade, such as "Swift," to add depth to your eyes.

Apply it along the crease of your eyelid, where it would naturally fold.

Step 4: Blend and highlight.

You're probably dealing with some harsh lines at this point. Smooth out the area where the base color and dark crease color meet with a blending brush until the blending looks seamless rather than paint-by-numbers.

To get an extra pop, apply a highlighter with an extra dusting of the lightest color, such as shimmery "Charge," just under your brow bones and in the inner corners of your eyes.
