What is Korean Eye Shadow?
Korean eye shadow is a coloured eye makeup product that is applied onto the eyelids to give it added dimension and accentuate its look. By combining a few different eyeshadow makeup colours with various finishes like matte, shimmery or glitter, they can add depth and complement your overall makeup look. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, most Korean eyeshadow Australia have buildable textures that can be applied in smooth layers depending on whether you are going for a bolder look, or a more subtle, day-to-day makeup style.
Types of Korean Eye Shadow
Korean eyeshadow makeup comes in a variety of formulas and types to suit your individual needs.
- Powder Eyeshadow: Powder eyeshadows are the most commonly found types of eyeshadow makeup in Australia. They pressed into small, individual pans or come in the form of a palette that looks like pressed powder. They have a smooth, blendable formula that can be applied to your eyelids using a small eyeshadow brush or your fingertips. This type of Korean eye shadow can also be used to contour your face, as a face bush or bronzer or as eyeliner.
- Liquid Eyeshadow: Liquid eyeshadow provide your eyes with highly pigmented, long-lasting colours without fallout or creasing. They are easy to apply, highly blendable and smooth formula that dries quickly. Liquid eyeshadows are perfect when you want to apply glitter or shimmery shades as they can also be easily layered over other eyeshadow products.
- Cream Eyeshadow: Cream eyeshadows come in a thick, dense formula that can easily be packed onto your eyelids without having to drag or tug on your eyelids. They have a long-wearing formula that blends seamlessly with different colours and textures. Cream eyeshadows can be applied using a Korean eyeshadow brush or your fingertips.
- Stick Eyeshadow: Stick or crayon eyeshadow come in a slender, pencil-like tube with a solid, firm product that looks like a crayon. This type of Korean eyeshadow Australia is designed for quick, easy, mess-free eyeshadow application that leaves effortlessly smooth, pigmented and long-lasting colours. Simply swipe it over your eyelids or gently blend it out to achieve a smoky eye look.
How to use Korean Eye Shadow?
Before applying your favourite eyeshadow makeup, it is important to first ensure that your eye area has been thoroughly cleaned using a gentle lip and eye makeup remover to melt away any residual impurities or leftover makeup products. Follow with an eyeshadow primer or base to help the colours last longer, giving it a more vivid payoff and prevent creasing. Alternatively, you can use a small amount of concealer on your upper eyelids to even out its colour and help enhance the shades of your eyeshadow that you will apply.
After your eyeshadow primer or base has slightly dried, you can start applying your choice of eyeshadow Australia using a brush or your ring finger. Be sure to use gentle, light motions as the eye area is the most sensitive. Feel free to experiment with a combination of different colours and finishes ranging from matte, shimmery or glitter Korean eyeshadow. Once you have achieved your desired eyeshadow makeup look, it is time to accentuate and take your eye makeup to the next level with mascara, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil or tint, to give your eyes added dimension and a livelier finish!
