Discover the best eye shadow makeup tips

Many women do not know the basics of eye shadow application; many think that all you have to do is swipe some color onto your lids and finish off with eye liner and mascara. However, there are different tricks and suggestions you can follow, particularly when it comes to apply different colors of eye shadow. These eye shadow makeup tips will help you figure out what style works best with your lids, as well as teach you how to properly apply shadow to your lids. First off, blending is key. You typically will be using three different colors: base, highlighter and main color. Start out with a lighter color, such as a taupe, and brush that color over your entire eye up to the brow bone. Next, apply your lid color (a medium shade), then apply highlighter (typically the darkest color) over the crease for added definition. Read 12 Best Eyeshadows for the ultimate guide to the best brands and colors to use with your eye shadow makeup tips.

When applying eye shadow, you want to make sure that you choose the right shadows that make your eyes pop. For instance, if you have brown eyes you should consider trying a jeweled blue shadow, whereas if you have blue eyes you can try using a stunning gold. Never apply a deep color to your brow bone because the shadows will appear too dramatic for everyday wear. When using shimmer, be wary because it has a tendency to highlight heavy lids, lines and wrinkles. And if you are doing a smokey eye, keep the color to the lid and just under the lower lash line, avoiding extending the color above the crease line.
