    Applying Eye Shadow Facts and Tips

    Applying Eye Shadow Facts and Tips
    When you select colours, remember that dark ones deepen or hollow features, while light ones will make the eyes stand out. Choose bright colours carefully. They can look great but they draw attention instantly to the eyes and run the risk of looking unnatural, unless the face is balanced with other suitable make-up products. Don't be put off by eye shadow colours before you have apply them, as most will appear more intense in the palettes than they actually are.

    Experiment with bright shades, but use them as a wash over the eyelids to add a subtle hint of colour. You don't need to wear colours that match the colour of your ins, but it's a good idea to select shades which will accentuate your natural colouring. For those with blue eyes, try liner in brown or navy and avoid wearing blue eyeshadow. Green eyes stand out when shaded with khaki and brown shades with yellow undertones. Very dark brown eyes can wear almost any colour but look especially striking with browns, charcoal and mahogany. Finally, grey/green eyes are enhanced by charcoal and black.

    Eyeshadow Application Tips
    If you wear glasses, take into consideration the type of lenses you have when you are selecting make-up. If you are short-sighted, corrective lenses will magnify your eyes, so unless you have naturally small eyes wear muted or natural shades of eyeshadow. If you are longsighted, your lenses will make your eyes appear smaller, so use eyeshadow to strengthen them. Dust eyeshadow along the socket line and outer corners of the eyes, but do not shade the eyelid heavily. Avoid wearing eyeliner on the upper lash line and steer clear of dark eyeshadow, as this will make the eyes appear smaller than they are. Also, frames will cast a shadow on the face, so disguise any darkness with a concealer one shade lighter than your foundation.

    How to Apply Eyeshadow
    Make-up artists recommend that, when you are wearing eyeshadow, you should pile on extra loose powder under the eyes to catch any stray particles of eyeshadow. After shading the eyes, this can be removed by dusting off with a large make-up brush. After application, if you feel your choice of eyeshadow is too intense, tone the colour down by dusting with face powder or gently wipe a foundation sponge over the eyelid to make the overall effect more subtle. To ensure that your eyeshadow is long-lasting and crease-proof, make-up artists advise application with a damp make-up brush. As the eyeshadow is blended into the skin, it will dry. Also, because the product will cling to the wet brush, stray particles of powder will not collect on the cheeks.

    1. Apply a light color over your entire eye lid from lash line to brow. Use a large flat eye shadow brush. Always use good quality brushes.

    2. The second step is to apply a medium shadow color on your lower lid from lash line to the crease of your eye. Use a fluff brush.

    3.The third step is to use your darkest color as a liner and apply along your lash line. To insure shadow will not flake, dampen your eyeliner brush before applying shadow. This will make it last longer.

    Types of eye shadows

    Dark - This is applied only to the eyelids from the lashline to the crease in the eyelid.

    Medium - This is applied from just below the eyelid crease to the browbone.

    Highlight - This is the lightest of the three and is applied to the browbone and extends a little past the outer end of the eyebrow. This usually gives a pearly finish.
