How do I use different shades of eye shadow together?Eye shadow can be used to highlight, contour, and accent the eyes in the following ways:
- Highlighting—flesh-toned, light, or pastel shades can be applied from lid to brow for an even, natural look or to accentuate the lid and the brow bone when darker shades are used to contour or accent your eyes.
- Contouring—medium-toned shades are a darker version of the highlighting shade. They should be applied to the natural crease of the eye and carefully blended with the highlighting shade above to accentuate the contour of your eyes.
- Accenting—accent shades are dark and dramatic. They should be used sparingly to create smoky and evening looks. When used with highlighting and contouring shades, they must be carefully blended to create uniform shading.
How can I help my small eyes appear larger?
Apply a highlighting shade on the entire eye area, from lid to brow. It's important to highlight the inner corner of your eye next to your nose. Next, choose soft (not too dark) contouring shades, concentrating the color on the outer third of the crease to widen and enlarge your eyes. Blend with the highlighting shade. Place the contouring shade slightly above the crease, not in it. Carefully blend with the highlighting shade.
How can I help my wide-set eyes appear closer together?
Apply the highlighting shade on your eyelid and brow bone. You may choose to use two different light shades such as a nude color on the brow bone and a pastel shade for the contouring shade on the lid. Blend the contouring shade across the entire length of the crease, including the area close to your nose. By accentuating the color over the inner corner of the eye, you're creating the appearance of less space between your eyes.
How can I help my deep-set eyes appear less receded?
It is important to avoid contouring colors that are too dark. Choose a medium contouring shade to avoid making your eyes appear to recede even more. Apply the highlighting shades from the lid to the brow bone and inner corner of the eye next to your nose.
