Always Start with a Primer

Always start with the rest of the steps only after the primer has fully dried. when applying the primer, use your fingertips and work the product onto the skin.
Next, you must apply the Eyeshadow Base. It helps the eyeshadow to stick better in the eyes. A foundation or concealer will work equally well if you’re short of an eyeshadow base.
Which Shades Should You Start With?

You would need to invest in a highlighter which should always be a shade lighter than the tone of your skin. Facial Highlighter works too! Any credible “eye makeup for beginners” tutorial will always suggest you start with the basic shades and work from there.
How to Use The Different Types of Brushes Properly?
It is important to grab all those essential brushes and make them a permanent part of your makeup kit. The basic brushes that you must buy are a smudger, a small and medium-sized brush for blending purposes and an eyeshadow brush that is usually small and flat for the application.
Apply the lightest shade on the innermost corner of the eye. Then it is easy to blend it in an outward motion. Always remember the inner corner of the eye is where most of the product should be.
One tip is to tap the brush so that there is no excess product on it. Another neat trick is to dip the brush in some water and then glide it on the eyeshadow. This will dampen the eyeshadow enough to help you apply it easily.
