Secret #1: Blending is key
If you’re not sure how to blend...you use three different colors: pick a nude or light taupe for the base, a highlighter or darker shade for the crease and a main color for the lid. Hint- Start light then go darker.
Secret #2: Never apply deep color to your brow bone
You don't want the drama that comes with wearing too much shadow. Apply shadow up to the brow bone but not ON the bone unless it's a neutral color.
Secret #3: Smokey Eye is great, but keep it to the lid line
When attempting a Smokey eye it is important to remember to keep color to the lid and just under the lower lash line. Don't extend color above the crease of the lid.
Secret #4: You should splurge on a good eye shadow
Great eye shadow will stay on your eyes all day long and typically have richer pigments and colors. It is worth it in the long run.
Secret #5: How to pair shadow with Dark lips
Remember the beauty rule “Do NOT play up the Lips AND the Mouth." If you're going for a dramatic lip then keep eye shadow light and neutral!
