some eyeshadow basics!
There are beautiful girls everywhere who seem to think there is one way to do eyeshadow (If you are going out to a party, there is more you can do than pile on the dark shadow and eyeliner). I think these are some exquisite photos of some options of eyelooks that (depending on color choice) can be bold and bonita or subtle and soft.
before anything: apply eye primer. Creasing eyeshadow aint cute.
eyelook 1: Using two different tones of the same color, apply the lightest color to the lid and blend the darker color upwards from the crease. For an eye-widening look, try blending the darker color from the outer corner of the crease to the middle of center of the crease.
eyelook 2: With a trio of colors, apply the lightest shadow to the entire lid, the medium shade from the outer corner of the lid to the middle of the lid, and the darkest color on the outer corner. blend blend blend!
eyelook 3: Repeat the same steps as eyelook one, but try a cool color for the eyelid, and a warm color for the crease.
eyelook 4: This look is especially evident on this model because she has deep set eyes and a pronounced brow bone- however, the eyeshadow increases the depth of the eyes. Also, matte shadows help achieve this look (something with added sparkle may not show as much contrast. Start by applying a white matte shadow on the entire lid. Use a deep gray or black to blend from the outer corner inwards. Add the dark gray or black to accentuate the crease. For added drama (this look in particular) put to use a deep matte purple and blend from the entire crease upwards to the brow bone. To highlight, add a lighter purple of lilac directly on the brow bone. It may be helpful in this case to mimic the shape of the crease of your eye, or mimic the shape of your eyebrow (it depends upon which illusion you would like to make).
Love the shape of the brow, the smoky eye, and most of all the hair!
