4 Ways To Use An Eyeshadow Stick

At MAKE, we're all about defying makeup norms, and that includes getting creative with our product formulations and the techniques we use to get the most out of them. We believe makeup rules are made to be bent, and The Eye Shaping Stylo was designed with that philosophy in mind.

MAKE's Eye Shaping Stylo is a multi-use cream matte eyeshadow stick designed to effortlessly shape, sculpt, and define the eyes. This 4-in-1 eye stylo comes in a range of nude and neutral shades suitable for all skin tones, offering buildable coverage for various looks. Formulated with advanced film-forming polymers and skin-conditioning emollients, The Eye Shaping Stylo delivers long-wearing pigment without drying out your eyelids. Its creamy texture ensures smooth application and a soft matte finish.

Thanks to its creamy glide-on, soft matte finish, and precision bullet, the Eye Shaping Stylo has earned a spot on our list of makeup bag staples.

Here are four ways to use this versatile eyeshadow stick:

1. Shade / Prime

Apply the Eye Shaping Stylo across your eyelids and blend using fingertips. This dual-action approach serves as both a base cream shadow and a primer, ensuring a smoother eyeshadow application that's set to last all day.

2. Shape

Use a darker shade like "Terrain" (a medium-red tone beige) to shape and define, or a lighter shade such as "Altitude" (a light taupe) to highlight and brighten. The Eye Shaping Stylo can even be used on the face (cheekbones, lips, nose) for a precise contour and highlight in those tough-to-reach places.

3. Contour

Create depth and dimension by applying the Eye Shaping Stylo to the crease or outer corners. Shades like "Latitude" (a deep taupe) or "Sonar" (a light warm brown) can help sculpt and define your eyes for a contoured effect. For best results, opt for a shade that is two to three shades darker than your natural skin tone.

4. Define

For a more pronounced look, define the eyes by gliding the stylo along the lash line. If you're aiming for a softer appearance, use the eyeshadow stick as an eye kohl, gently blending out with a smudging brush for a soft take on the classic smokey eye.
