Make sure brows are well tweezed, as any hairs on the eyelid will trap eyeshadow and make blending difficult.
Dab a little foundation or concealer over the eyelids to hide any redness and create a smooth base. If you are using a cream, silk, or crayon eyeshadow, apply it on top. If you are using powder eyeshadow, brush the eyelid with a little translucent powder to absorb moisture first.
Use a lighter shade over the whole eye before applying a darker color. Always apply at the point where you want the darkest color, whether that’s at the root of the lashes or the socket line, and then blend. Apply a little highlight color along the brow bone.
Light-reflecting or pearlized shadows swept up to the brow bone and dotted in the inner corner of the eye will open up the eyes and make them look brighter.
Shimmery textures give your eyes a twinkly glow; in natural shades, they make tired eyes look more awake.
Don’t be afraid to mix textures and finishes- matte and frost can be used together, glitter and some shimmery powders can be blended over creams, and a layer of gloss can be applied over powder shadow.
