With the need to blend and mix various shadows, perfecting an eye makeup can often be time-consuming, but these tricks below will make the process way simpler: 


1. Keep things simple and easy by using a liquid eye shadow. 

Unlike its powder counterparts, you can simply use your fingers to apply a liquid shadow (no makeup brushes or expert blending skills required!). Dab a few dots of the product on your lids and gently blend it in using your fingers. 

FN Tip: Opt for a warm hue like brown or rosy pink to instantly add depth to your eyes without the need to complicatedly blend in other darker colors.

2. For a youthful, K-beauty-inspired glow, dust a peach shadow (or blush) on your lids. 

Complete the look with a few coats of mascara

FN Tip: You can pair your peach eye makeup with coral lips to end up with a blooming, daytime look, as seen on blogger Tricia Gosingtian

...Or for an evening affair, amp things up with a red lip for a romantic look with a bit of drama.  

3. Use your bronzer as an eye shadow.

Here's a trick we learned from local makeup artists: If you don't have a liquid shadow (or a makeup palette) at the ready, simply sweep your bronzer all over your lids using any fluffy eye shadow brush to quickly define your bare lids. This warm eye makeup is perfect for women who prefer a light, natural makeup look. 



4. Invest in a duo or trio palette that you can use as a guide when doing your eye makeup. 

FN Tip: The lightest matte color is often your base, and the darkest is the shade you can blend on your crease and the outer corner of your eyes to make your eyes pop.

5. Instead of black, try a pink smokey eye that's easier to pull off.  

You'll only need three colors for this look. Start by dusting a neutral shade all over your lids to even out your skin tone, getting rid of any redness or discoloration on your lids. Next, apply a light pink shade on your lids; using any fluffy shadow brush, blend a darker pink hue on your crease until you achieve the color intensity you want. The skin-brightening hue will make your eyes pop even without a winged liner on. 

Take Lovi Poe's sultry pink eye makeup as an inspo: 

FN Tip: To further brighten up your eyes, dip your pinkie finger in any shimmery cream-colored shadow and dab it on the inner corner of your eyes.
