Ever since I've started using brushes to do my eye makeup, I no longer use my fingers and those sponge tip applicators that come with eyeshadows. However, it's not to say that not using brushes will result in ugly makeup. In fact, certain styles of eyeshadow application actually work really well with sponge tip applicators such as the Japanese style. Personally, I prefer the western style of eyeshadow application, which is why I almost always use brushes. I did this look for Syen's wedding and it's fairly easy to achieve, using only 3 eyeshadow colors. This time, I've done a video tutorial to show how I blend using the sponge tip applicator.
Read on for more pictures, the video tutorial and description of items used.
I forgot to take a picture of the pigment swatches so I'll upload that later on.
Tiramisu: Deep reddish brown with maroon shimmer. One of those dark browns that would work wonderfully for smokey eyes and also as a liner
Cola: Medium amber gold. Great as an all-over shadow color or blending shade
Cafe Latte: Almost no pigment at all. It's very sheer and soft beige with golden-beige shimmer. Works as highlight
