About Your ModelCo Liquid Eyeshadow 

Brought to you by iconic Australian beauty brand ModelCo, this metallic liquid eyeshadow can be used to achieve an array of sultry eye looks. The innovative texture glides effortlessly onto your lid to create an unparalleled sparkly glowYou can use it alone for a simple metallic look or use it to add more intensity to a matte base! Here are two ways to use it…

Look 1: A Touch Of Shimmer 

Step 1. Prep Your Lid  

Before applying eyeshadow, you should always prep your lids with an eye primer. Our makeup artist Lucinka recommends using the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eye Shadow in shade Painterly. It acts as a great eye primer and makes the pigments in your eyeshadow stand out.

Step 2. Sketch Out The Shape Of Your Eye  

Using a large, fluffy blending brush, apply a light, matte nude eyeshadow onto your lid and softly accentuate the area just above your eye socket. This should create a delicate shadow.  

Steps 3&4. Add Depth 

Your third and fourth steps should focus on the socket of your eye. Use a smaller blending brush to apply a slightly deeper matte shade of brown into your socket. Then, pack on an even deeper matte shade into the outer corner of your eye and blend it inwards. This will help to frame your eyes.  

Insider Tip: Without adding any extra pigments to your blending brush, use gentle swirling motions to seamlessly blend the three colours together liquid eyeshadow tutorial

Step 5. Prep For Glitter

Now that you’ve created your matte base, it’s time to add some shimmer! To keep your liquid eyeshadow in place, though, you’ll need to prep your lid again.

Using a flat concealer brush, apply the MAC eyeshadow primer from step 1 onto the inner corner of your eye, so that you cut out a small section of your lid. You want to create a defined line with your concealer so that, when you’ve finished building your look, you’ll be able to differentiate between the shadow you already have on and the shadow you’re about to apply. 

Step 6. Apply Your Liquid Eyeshadow 

This is the fun bit! Using the cushioned tip, apply your ModelCo liquid eyeshadow onto the ‘cut out’ area you’ve just created using your primer. This will add a glittery effect to your lid.  

Insider Tip: If you want an extra glittery look, you can use this liquid eyeshadow as a base over which to apply loose pigments. It helps them to stay on effortlessly!

Step 7, 8 And 9. Finishing Touches 

To finish off the look, line your bottom and top lash lines with a dark matte eyeliner, before adding a few lashings of mascara.  

Insider Tip: Alternatively, use the HUDA Liner to really accentuate your eyes and create that snatched look. You’ll find a tutorial for that here. how to use liquid eyeshadow
