Putting your eye shadow on correctly really isn't difficult at all. It really is just a matter of finding the right technique and look for you and your personal style. Don't worry if it takes a few tries to get it right. Check out these tips:
1 – Base Coat
Always apply a base coat on your eyes just as you do to the rest of your face. Loose powder works or you can apply your foundation to the eye area. It gives a nice even palette to work with.
2 - Blend
Blend, blend, and then blend some more. This can’t be stressed enough. Try an experiment. Blend one eye and then just use a brush and apply the other eye. You'll instantly see the difference and you'll never forget to blend again.
3 - Water
If you want dramatic eyes, take your eye shadow brush, dip it into water, and then into the shadow, then apply. It will give you a much deeper, dramatic color.
4 – Blue Color Strategy
If you have blue eyes, wear purple, violet, taupe, gray, deep blue, and black. Funky colors include fuchsia, turquoise, and silver.
5 – Green Color Strategy
If you have green eyes, wear purple, plum, forest green, brown, and khaki. Funky colors include light green, gold, and bright purple.
6 – Brown Color Strategy
If you have brown eyes, wear champagne, copper, brown, apricot, khaki, and beige. Funky colors include royal blue, tangerine, hand hot pink.
7 – Common Color Strategy
Everyone can wear navy, powder blue, and charcoal. Fun colors include silver.
8 – Youthful Eyes
Apply a lighter shadow in the inner corner of the eye to reflect and make your eyes look younger.
9 – Bigger Eyes
If you want your eyes to appear larger, use a light color on the inner corner, and a darker shade in the middle of the eye area.
10 - Practice
Practice until you get the application of your eye shadow down to a science. When you get good, your make up will look more natural and more polished.
11 – Dark and Medium Shadows
Apply your dark shadow only to the eyelids from the lash line to the crease in the eyelid. Apply your medium shadow from just below the eyelid crease to the brow bone.
12 - Highlighting
Highlight along the brow bone. Doing it this way will make your features stand out naturally and beautifully.
So there you have it. With these top tips you now know how to apply your eye shadow so you will look your best.
