Liquid eye shadow has a texture similar to lip glaze. It is divided into two bases: water and oil. The flash particles are dissolved in it. After the eye is applied and dried, a layer of "coating" will be formed, so that the eye shadow will firmly "stick" to the skin.
The biggest difference between liquid eyeshadows and powder eyeshadows is the texture. Because liquid eyeshadows with glitter can avoid falling out, most liquid eyeshadows are mainly glitter, supplemented by color.
Liquid eyeshadows have high water content and are thinner in texture, and the particles tend to be larger and not so delicate. But it is more difficult to control for novices, and this kind of eye shadow is not suitable for large area application.
So what is the difference between powder eye shadow and liquid eye shadow?
- Eye shadow powder
Features: powdery texture, easy to drop, easy to dip
Who is suitable: everyone
How to use: Eyeshadow powder has a dry texture and is best matched with a brush. It is easy to take the powder, and basically does not “eat” it. It is worth noting that while using a clean brush to take powder is convenient, it is also convenient to remove powder, so the brush should not dip too much eye shadow powder at once. Use a small amount for multiple times. The brushes for dipping eyeshadow and blending eyeshadow should be used separately, so that the transition of the eyeshadow can be clean and natural, while retaining the sense of layering. For wet and dry eyeshadow powder, you can spray the brush with water or makeup spray and apply the powder on the eyes. The eyeshadow will be particularly rich in color and long lasting. You can also use the sponge brush commonly found in boxed eyeshadows to take powder. Do not have too much water on the wet brush, just damp it slightly.
- Liquid eye shadow
Features: Liquid state, high durability, relatively weak maneuverability, not easy to modify.
Who is suitable: those who are more proficient in eye makeup or artists
How to use: Liquid eye shadows are often packaged similar to lip gloss, and it is most convenient to have a brush head similar to a lip gloss brush head. Just take an appropriate amount of eyeshadow and apply it on the desired position, gently faint your fingers. There is also the use of the eye makeup sponge to make the eyeshadow even and not agglomerated, which is very convenient for novices who have a bad grasp of the details.
