The Ombre eyeshadow technique is so much fun! I can’t believe I hadn’t done this technique before now. Doing an ombre eyeshadow look is a great way to introduce yourself to a smokey eye look. It’s like a smokey eye for beginners!
Another great thing about this Ombre eyeshadow technique is that it can be done with darker shades for a more dramatic look, or you can use softer colors for an everyday look.
You need three shades of eyeshadow to achieve this Ombre eyeshadow look. I recommend that you choose 3 shades in the same color family; a middle shade, a light shade, and a darker shade. In these pictures I’ve used 3 shades of brown, and 3 shades of pinks to create two completely different looks.
No matter what color family you choose, the method for applying the shadows remains the same. It’s a simple 3 step process.
Here’s how to do the Ombre eyeshadow technique:
Step 2- Using the same fluffy eyeshadow brush, dip into your lightest shade and place the color from your crease up to your brows. Don’t forget to blend the light shade into the middle shade along your crease.
Step 3- Using a smudge brush (try this new brush from Maskcara!), dip into your darkest shade and place it along your lash line. Blend the dark color into your middle shade, but don’t blend it out completely or you will lose the Ombre effect of your shadows.
That’s it! You’ve just mastered another eyeshadow technique! Congrats. Give yourself a pat on the back and show off your new-found skill with a selfie. 🙂
