There are two basic ways to apply eye shadow in shape shading, “rounded” and “winged”. Now you want to determine what is the best shading shape in your case. You can try applying one shading shape (rounded) to one eye and the other shading shape (winged) to the other eye (this would save you time). Then go look in the mirror and see which one looks best on you.

Run eye shadow brush over light color

  • Start with two colors: a neutral color and a darker shade. Run your brush over the light, neutral shade and tap off any excess shadow.
    Tip: You can use your index finger to apply color if you don’t have a brush

eyeshadow 4 Apply dark shadow to crease

To create contour, start by applying shadow at the outer corner of the eye just above the top lashes. Then sweep it along the eyelid where the brow bone hits the crease, moving the brush in a half-moon from the outer corner of the eye inward toward the center of the eyelid. (Don’t darken the innermost part of the eyelid.) Sweep the brush back and forth several times to blend.
Tip: To intensify color, repeat with more shadow.


Repeat steps one through four on the other eye

Follow the same steps for the other eye, remembering to tap off excess shadow each time you dip your brush.
