If you don't wear eye makeup often, it may seem impossible to get a natural yet beautiful look. However by following some simple guides, you can learn to apply eye shadow very easily.
Select your colors.
Start with neutrals. Before experiment with bright, metallic or dark colors, you should get comfortable with neutrals. Brown shades look good on everyone. Once you get the hang of applying shadow, you can begin experimenting with more vibrant colors.
If you are having problems selecting colors, Makeup.com offers a variety of different eye shadow kits which usually contain three coordinating colors. Makeup.com features top brand names such as Becca Cosmetics, Cargo, Lola Cosmetics, Paula Dorf, Too Faced and several others.
Apply the shadow.
You should have three shades in the same color family. You will apply the lightest color on the brow bone, the darkest color in the crease and the medium shade on the eyelid.
