If you are going to a party and want to make heads turn, add a dash of color to your lips and a beautiful eyeshadow and kohl to your eyes, and see the difference. No wonder, cosmetic industry is booming. After all, women would always love to enhance their physical appearance.
Though women from all parts of the world readily shell out money on these makeup products, without a good aesthetic sense and the knowledge of correct makeup techniques, their efforts to beautify themselves are bound to go down the drain. It is for such women, that some of the cosmetic companies have come up with easy-to-apply makeup products.
Take for instance, the eyeshadow stickers. The cosmetic companies present the peel-off stickers as the perfect solution for women who struggle with makeup brushes. According to the manufacturers, these single-use peel-off stickers are waterproof and crease-proof. If you have never heard about this makeup product, here is all you need to know.

How to Use these Stickers?

For women who are not well-versed with the art of applying eyeshadow, and fail to get the right look, despite spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, here's something that will put an end to their troubles. With peel-off stickers, you can create any kind of look you want.
Now you don't need to worry about the wrong brush strokes or makeup blunders that might lead you to a fashion disaster. The manufacturers claim that they came up with this product to make this task easier. Even women who are good at applying eye makeup can use them when there isn't much time to apply makeup.
These eye shadow stickers come in an array of hues. Whether you wish to don the smokey look for the evening or just a neutral color for a meeting, there is a vast collection to choose from. If you are going for a theme party, you will get a variety of patterns that might help you create the right look.
If you check out the samples, you will come across stickers in animal prints, metallic shades and wacky designs. You could buy these oval-shaped stickers from online beauty retailers. Avon is one of the popular cosmetic brands that is offering this beauty product.
I am sure you might be wondering how to use this product to accentuate your eyes. All you need to do is close your eye and raise your eyebrow. Use your index finger and the middle finger to hold the sticker at the base of the eyelid and then apply a little pressure to smooth the sticker from the inner corner of the eye. Work your way to the outer corner.
The next step is to slide and peel the back of the sticker. If you want a dramatic look, you can use another sticker and blend these shades in any way you want. If you are using a combination of dark and light shades, just make sure that you don't blend the colors with the same finger. Some of the stickers also come with a setting powder and brush.


Though these stickers have been projected as a quick and effortless way for applying eye shadow, the reviews have been somewhat mixed. First of all, the shape and size of the eyes and eyelids varies, and one standard size would not really work well for all.
These peel-off stickers are single-use and you might have to shell out anywhere between $10 to $20 for a kit, that may contain 10 to 20 stickers. If you accidentally place the sticker at a wrong angle, you might not get the look you want. So, that would be a total waste of your time and money.
Even after you peel off the oval-shaped sticker, you would still have to blend the color to get rid of the outline and may also need to apply the setting powder. Not all the available colors may suit your complexion so take your own sweet time in selecting the right ones.
Though it would be safe to try out the plain ones, the ones that have animal prints or patterns would look good for certain occasions. These could be worn for wacky theme parties.
On a concluding note, women who are not too good at applying eye makeup, and grapple with the brush or the sponge applicators, could give these peel-off stickers a try. Personally I feel that applying eyeshadow is not rocket science, and anyone can learn how to apply it like a pro.
Once you have mastered the art of applying eye makeup, you can spice up your look and be the stunner you always wanted to be!
