There is so much makeup out there that it can be hard to know what is what. Today we will be looking at liquid eyeshadow and:

What it is & what it does

First off, liquid eyeshadow is a “wet” makeup product made to add dimension and depth to your eyes making them appear larger, prettier, more open, and so on. It can compliment your eye colour, draw attention to your eyes and overall alter how you look – for better or worse.


When we talked about eyeshadow back in June 2021 I talked a bit about the different types of eyeshadow that exist. One of those were liquid eyeshadow. But because liquid eyeshadow is not the same to work with as powder eyeshadow, we are talking about it here too.

The biggest difference between normal and liquid eyeshadow is how well you may work with it. A liquid eyeshadow takes seconds to put on, but is not easy (if possible at all) to layer with other shadows. The normal powder shadow will usually take longer to put on as it needs to be blended, but here you got many options for the look.

Liquid eyeshadow comes in just about every colour, and I would argue they are so closely related to cream eyeshadow they might as well be sisters.


No one NEED makeup at all, but it can be a fun or nice thing especially if you like putting on makeup.

Because liquid eyeshadow is so easy and fast to put on, it can be good for beginners and may look more subtle than other eyeshadow – since it is the easiest to just use one colour.

You should use it after your eye primer, but you choose yourself if you want to use it before or after doing your face makeup – if you are doing any at all.

If there is some type of makeup you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
