Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Apply Eye Shadow


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.

Experiment and try all the different shading. You may be surprised to find that several of them may look great on you (the rounded technique seems to look good on the majority of women).

If you don’t have much room between the eyelid crease of your eye and your eyebrow then apply eye shadow using the winged shape (unless there is some sagging).

Winged Shading
Winged eye shadow technique Looks best where the skin towards the corner of the eye is not sagging such as on younger women because their skin is still firm.

Round Shading
Rounded eye shadow techniqueUse when your brow bone markedly curves around the eye and don’t use the winged style because it will make any sag more obvious.

How to Apply Eye Shadow to Create Shape…

Now that you know the shape of the skin surrounding your eye you are ready to try to apply eye shadow in several highlight and shadow combinations to help you find the one that complements you the best. Remember that the crease of the eye is always shaded. Here are some of the choices for shading and highlighting that you can try:

* Apply eye shadow to highlight the eyelid, round the shading: Best suited for hooded eyes and older deep set eyes.
* Highlight the eyelid, wing the shading: Best suited for younger deep set eyes.
* Apply eye shadow to shade the eyelid and round the shading: Best suited for prominent lids and younger deep set eyes.
* Shade the eyelid and wing the shading: Best suited for younger deep set eyes.
