[Pro Library] RBR Make-Up Artists’ 5 Enchanted Eye Shadow Tips for Everyone


1. Professional-looking results

Even crease-proof eyeshadow can create some fallout when you’re going for a very bold, smoky or a very glitter-heavy look.


To keep your eye make-up artwork professional and tidy, do this: dust a little bit of the Impalpable Finishing Powder DIAPHANOUS to your under-eye area and have a brush dipped in DIAPHANOUS handy to fix any mishaps.

2. Find your favourite formula

Find which formula works best for you, depending on your eye shape and your personal preferences.


Pressed eye shadow is a classic; practical, easy to use, especially for beginners. RBR pressed eye shadows are particularly lightweight, buttery-soft, highly blendable and very long-lasting: Long-lasting Eye Shadow or Long-lasting Matt Eye Shadow.

Cream eye shadow can double as a primer for elaborate looks or be worn on its own for a bold statement look. RBR Long-lasting Cream Eye Shadow and Long-lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow can also be blended to create custom shades. Applied with a fine brush, they double as sophisticated liquid liner.

Loose eye shadow is the most versatile formula that can be used in many different creative ways. Beginners might find it messy, but formulas like RBR Loose Glitter Pigment that come with a professional applicator are easier to apply and have great adherence, meaning they won’t crease and ruin the look.

3. Understand the idea behind those duos and quartets

Eye shadow palettes have colours designed to work together. While you are free to apply each shade just as you like, most palettes are designed for particular looks:

4. Play with putting together your own palettes
