Scotch tape Eyeshadow Look

Tape Eyeshadow Trick

I’m sure you’ve all seen those crisp eye shadow looks that have that gorgeous cat eye effect. Well an easy way to recreate these looks, requiring hardly any skill is by utilizing the scotch tape trick. If you have some tape laying around the house you can achieve this look super easily.


  1. Start with a bare face, if you do your face makeup first the tape will take off any makeup you have down
  2. Make sure to place the tape on the back of your hand and remove it once or twice before applying so when you take it off your delicate eye area it doesn’t pull too much
  3. Place the tape on your lower lash line and create the angle you want, making sure that both eyes are at the same angle or your final look won’t be symmetrical
  4. Then start applying your shadows to the lid and crease area
  5. Once you have your shadows in place you can either do your liner with the tape on or remove it and just follow that same line that was created from the tape
  6. Slowly remove the tape and you should have a clean crisp winged shadow look
  7. If the look is too harsh you can simply take a blending brush and buff the edges a little bit
  8. Finally finish off the rest of your makeup and apply eyeshadow under your lash line to really pull the whole look together
