Women are usually able to apply there makeup quite well even with the many cosmetic brands available, but when they talk about eyeshadow some younger women get overwhelmed for a host of reasons. The first lesson in learning how to apply eyeshadow would be to never use colors that contrast with your natural born eye color. For example, if your eyes are ocean blue and you choose to use lets say a darker eyeshadow the effect just might age you instead of highlighting the true beauty of your eyes. What you want to do is pick an eyeshadow color that compliments and never contrasts or takes away from your natural eye color.
The best eyeshadow tips start with a good base. Eyeshadow does not only make your eyes look bigger, they can also add drama and draw attention to your eyes. The most important step before anything else is to apply a good base or primer. To apply eyeshadow directly to skin defeats the purpose of a good makeup application. You do not want your eyeshadow to collect in the crease of the eye or worse yet melt into your skin like lotion as if you never put any on. A good primer should match your skin tone. Too light and the eyeshadow could have you looking like a raccoon, too dark and you could look like 80’s night or worse a scary clown.
