Unbelievably Amazing Uses Of Eye Shadow
There comes a time when you tend to get over that awesome eye shadow shade you were so in love with a few months ago. In your heart you know you might never use the shade again, or maybe it just isn't useable anymore, maybe it is all cracked up. However, the idea of throwing it away still makes you feel guilty. I have been there too, and that's when I thought, Isn't there some way to make the best of this situation too." Rejoice! There is! Here are some amazing uses of eye shadow that I bet you didn't know of.
While this seems like such a no brainer, I bet it yet doesn't strike many of us. You can always use your eye shadow as an eye liner. The best part is that you need not be be confined to thin lines or thick ones; with an eye shadow you can get any sort of liner look that you want, that too in colours you probably won't find in eye liners. So grab your brush and get lining.
You can always use your eye shadow to give your cheeks a lovely pop of colour. All you have to do is grab your round brush and use it as you would use your blusher. Here too, you get the option of a wide range of colours, although I personally wouldn't want lime green cheeks! :p

If you are out of your eye brow filler and don't have time to get a new one, just grab your eye shadow in the shade closest to your eyebrow hair colour. If you can't find the exact matching shade, give blending two shades a try.
What? Am I serious? Yes, I am! You can use eye shadow to make your very own lip colour, that too easily. All you have to do is mix your eye shadow with a little bit of Vaseline, clear lip gloss or lip balm. And tada, you have your very own custom lip colour!
Yeah, you read right. You can make your very own nail paint shade with eye shadow too. Crush the shadow into a powder and dunk it down a bottle of clear nail paint. Shake up the bottle, so that the shadow and the nail varnish mix together well, and voila your very own shade of nail paint is ready!
Neutral tones that blend with your skin can make for an excellent highlighter. Use a fan brush and apply some on the areas of your face you want to highlight – cheek bones, brow bone, etc. Just make sure to maintain a light hand so and don't apply too much. You want to achieve the natural inner glow look not the "I just played with glitter look."
Next time don't just throw away your old eye shadow and don't bury it at the bottom of your makeup box either; make the most of every bit of the product with these amazing uses of eye shadow.
