1. Smokey Shadow
Soften, blend and smudge a variety of dark and sultry shades to create the ideal smokey eye. Start with a charcoal shade. Place the color at the lashline and gradually build color up toward the crease and along the lower lash line. For added drama, extend the shadow beyond the outer corner of the eye.


This look is very versatile. Soften it for a cozy dinner date or amp it up for a night out on the town.

2. Natural-Looking Eyeshadow
Perfect for a day date, use this shadow technique to flatter your eye shape, size and color. Start by applying a light shadow from lash line to brow, follow with a medium shadow for natural definition and finish with a medium-dark shadow on the crease for additional depth. Let the sunlight and the shadow reflect and enhance your natural eye color for a chic and polished beauty look.


3. Electrifying Eyeshadow
Try a bight and electrifying eye shadow shade like lilac to illuminate your eyes. Apply the bold shadow from lashline to brow bone and along the lower lash line. Wetting the brush helps intensify shadow and prolong its wear.

This is a great look for early evening drinks that turn into dinner.

4. Outer V Shadow
This shadow technique calls for a variety of black, brown and tan shades and different brush sizes. Blend darker shadow on outside and lighter shadow in the center to create a V shape.


This trendy technique will add a playful edge to any outfit, so try it for a fun night of drinks and dancing.
