The right shades of eyeshadow can definitely make your eyes more attractive. I love experimenting with eyeshadow, and the big color palettes are wonderful for adding variety to my beauty collection. You would be surprised to find the many color combinations that will look really good on you.
By simply playing in your makeup box, you can freshen an old look, and maybe even get a more glamorous face with some simple contouring and shading tips. Many women also like to experiment with new bright bold colors in shadows, and from glitter to accenting shades, you can create a variety of different effects easily, and will a little know how.
Spend some time with your color palette, and experiment with colors that you find attractive. Some tips with color, brown eyes look spectacular with purple eyeshadow, green eyes pop with gold, blue eyes look amazing with most any shade of blue shadow, and hazel eyes get more bold with green or khaki colored shadows.
To keep your eye shadow in place, especially if you are using a creme eyeshadow, use a primer. I like Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. Before applying your eyeshadow, simply apply the primer as instructed over the lids and up to the browbone. This will keep your shadow in place, and keep it from smearing.
If you are looking for subtle color, go with neutral shadows like tan, pale pink, or gray. Apply neutral shades with an eyeshadow wand to the area just under the brow line, and over your lid. To play up your eyes try experimenting with darker or deeper colors to compliment these colors. Use these colors to contour the areas just over the lid in the crease and the area above up to the lightest shadow area, and along the corners of your eyes from the inner corner up to the brow.
Another trick that I like to use when I want more color is to line my upper lids with a thick eyeliner pencil, and go over the lid area with the darkest most dramatic color of shadow. This is a good makeup tip for when you are going out at night. Be sure to smudge and blend the color so that it looks better, and you don’t get that “made up” look.
Whenever you are applying eye shadow, you will want to blend for the best look. I use a larger makeup brush to blend eyeshadow with a light dusting. Finally, use a good mascara to play up your lashes, and give you look some balance.
