Invest in a Good Eyeshadow Primer

Using a good eyeshadow primer is crucial when it comes to wearing loose eyeshadow pigments. Not only will it help your eyeshadow last longer, but it will also prevent creasing and smudging. Make sure to apply the primer on your eyelids before applying any eyeshadow pigment. This will create a smooth base for the pigment to adhere to, and also intensify the colour.

Use a Damp Brush

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to using loose eyeshadow pigments is fallout. To minimize fallout and get the maximum colour payoff, use a damp brush to apply the pigment. Wet the tip of your brush with some water or setting spray, then dip it into the pigment. This will help the pigment adhere better to your eyelid and prevent it from getting all over your face.

Layer and Blend

To create a beautiful eye look with loose eyeshadow pigments, it's important to layer and blend the colours properly. Start with a light shade all over your lid, then gradually build up the colour intensity. Use a small blending brush to blend the colours together for a seamless transition. Remember, less is more when it comes to applying loose pigments. It's easier to add more pigment than to remove it once it's on your eyelid.


Loose eyeshadow pigments can be a great addition to your makeup collection. By investing in a good eyeshadow primer, using a damp brush, and layering and blending the colours, you can create a stunning eye look that will last all day. Don't be afraid to experiment with different colours and techniques to find the perfect look for you.

Happy experimenting!
