To apply eyeliner with eyeshadow, you can follow these steps:
  1. Prepare your eyes: Start by applying an eyeshadow primer or a thin layer of foundation or concealer on your eyelids. This helps create an even base and prevents the eyeshadow from smudging or creasing.

  2. Choose your eyeshadow: Select an eyeshadow shade that you want to use as your eyeliner. It can be a dark shade like black, brown, or gray for a classic eyeliner look, or you can go for a colorful shade to create a more unique look.

  3. Find a suitable brush: Look for an angled eyeliner brush or a small, firm and flat eyeshadow brush. These brushes provide better precision and control when applying the eyeshadow as an eyeliner.

  4. Apply the eyeshadow as eyeliner: Dip the brush into the eyeshadow, tapping off any excess. Start from the outer corner of your upper lash line and gradually work your way towards the inner corner. Use short, gentle strokes to apply the eyeshadow along the lash line, making it as close to the roots of the lashes as possible.

  5. Build up intensity: Apply the eyeshadow in layers, gradually building up the color and intensity. This allows you to achieve the desired level of definition and thickness for your eyeliner look. Remember to blend the eyeshadow slightly to soften any harsh lines and create a seamless transition.

  6. Optional: You can also apply eyeshadow on your lower lash line to enhance your eye shape or create a smoky effect. Use a smaller brush or smudge brush to apply the eyeshadow in the same manner as the upper lash line.

  7. Complete your eye makeup: Finish off your eye makeup by curling your lashes and applying mascara to both upper and lower lashes. This helps to define and enhance the overall look of your eyes.

how to do eyeliner with eyeshadow?

To create eyeliner using eyeshadow, you will need an angled brush and the eyeshadow color of your choice. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Start by choosing a suitable eyeshadow shade for your desired eyeliner look. It can be a vibrant color or a classic black/brown shade.

Dampen your angled brush slightly with water or setting spray. This will help intensify the eyeshadow and make it easier to apply as eyeliner.

Dip the angled brush into the eyeshadow, ensuring that the bristles are evenly coated with product.

Gently press the brush along your upper lash line, starting from the inner corner and moving towards the outer corner of your eye. Take your time and go slow to create a smooth line.

If you prefer a thicker or more defined line, you can repeat the step above and layer the eyeshadow until you achieve your desired intensity.

Optional: If you want a softer or smudged eyeliner look, you can use a smudging brush or a cotton swab to lightly blur the line after application.

how to make eyeliner with eyeshadow?

To make eyeliner from eyeshadow, you’ll essentially turn a powder shadow into a cream or gel-like liner that can be applied more precisely. Here’s a simple method:

You will need:

A small mixing palette or clean surface.

A small angled eyeliner brush.

Loose or pressed eyeshadow in the color you want to use as eyeliner.

Setting spray or water to mix with the eyeshadow (for a temporary solution).

Alternatively, for a more lasting solution, a mixing medium or an eyeliner sealer designed to be mixed with pigments to create waterproof formulas.


Scrape Out Eyeshadow: If you are using a pressed eyeshadow, gently scrape out a small amount of it onto your mixing palette. If you’re using a loose eyeshadow, tap out a little bit directly onto the palette.

Add Mixing Medium: For a temporary mix, lightly spray your brush with setting spray or dab it in water. For a more durable eyeliner, put a drop of mixing medium or eyeliner sealer beside the eyeshadow on the palette.

Mix the Eyeshadow: Dip your dampened brush into the eyeshadow (or drop the liquid onto the eyeshadow) and mix it into a paste-like consistency. The mixture should be smooth, not too wet, and easy to apply.

Apply the Eyeliner: Using the angled brush, apply the mixture to your eyelid as you would with liquid eyeliner. Start at the inner corner and make your way to the outer corner, following the natural lash line.

Refine: If you desire a winged look, extend the line upwards at the outer corner of your eye. Use a pointed cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up any mistakes or sharpen your lines.

Set the Eyeliner: If you’ve used water or setting spray, you can apply a bit of the same eyeshadow on top of the line in its dry form to help set the homemade eyeliner in place.

can you do eyeliner with eyeshadow?

Yes, you can use eyeshadow as eyeliner, and it is a method commonly used when someone wants a softer, more blended look, or if they prefer to use the exact color of their eyeshadow as a liner for a cohesive look. Here’s how you do it:

Using Eyeshadow as Eyeliner:

Choose the Right Tools: Get a thin, angled eyeliner brush for precision or a pencil brush for a smudged effect.

Select Your Eyeshadow: Pick an eyeshadow color that suits your desired look. Keep in mind that darker and more vibrant colors often mimic traditional eyeliners best.

Dampen the Brush (Optional): Lightly wet the bristles of your brush with water or a setting spray to increase the intensity of the shadow. This is similar to creating a temporary ‘cake liner’ and provides a more vivid color and longer-lasting effect.

Load the Brush with Eyeshadow: Gently tap or swipe your brush into the eyeshadow. If you are using a pressed palette, be sure not to oversaturate your brush, which can lead to fallout.

Apply the Shadow: With a steady hand, press or drag the brush along your upper lash line, starting from the inner corner and working your way outwards. You can create a thin or thick line, depending on the look you are going for. If you prefer a wing, extend the line slightly upward and outward at the outer corner of your eye.

Build the Product: For more depth, you can layer the eyeshadow until you reach the desired intensity.

Clean Up: If needed, use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up the edges or create a sharper wing.
