Eyeshadow – Right Selection and Right Application

  • When applying foundations, there are some rigid rules but when it comes to your eyes, it is your eye color that decides the creative side.
  • Your eyes are the most important part on your face. So make sure that your eye makeup techniques and choice of colors are  capable of highlighting your eye shape and color.
  • With the eye color, you can create the illusion of new shape and size.
  • Always remember that light colors can high light and dark colors can shrink the appearance. While applying eye shadow, sweep the lightest shade from the lash line to brow to cover the entire area. This shade is the base color to your eye in the same way foundation is to your face. It will hold your color and avoid creasing.


  • On days when you are in a hurry, just apply the base color to the eye and then finish with mascara only.
  • Once you apply the base color then apply a medium shade on the lower lid. Most women apply eye shadow in this part of the eye. Blend the shade into your base shade.
  • A third color can be added. Use of a deep dark shade will create depth. This shade should be applied along the lash line and at the outer corner of the eye giving more stress on the crease of the eye and brow bone. It should be blended well. This is your emphasizing shade and when used can create a well-defined eye. The way you apply this contour shade helps your eyes to look bigger, smaller, wider or closer. The main thing is to blend well so that all the attention is to be drawn to your eyes and not to your make up.


  • For making your eye shadow to stay as if the make up is “just applied” for hours, first base your eyelid with a shade which suits your skin color. After that apply a neutral shade or a color nearest to your skin color over the cover cream. When the powder adheres to the cream it will create a smudge resistant base for your eye shadow. It will last for a longer time.
  • Powder eye shadow can be applied wet or dry. Wet you brush or applicator and make your own eyeliner in any vibrant colors. Applying in the wet form will intensify the color.
  • Cream eye shadow can be applied as a single color or in a coordinated double color. These cream eye shadows can also be coordinated with our powder shadows. 
  • This cream eye shadow can be used as an under base with a matching powder shadow as a sealant. Your fingertips are the best applicator for any cream eye shadow.


  • When you are applying eye shadow to the crease of your eye, your eyes should be kept open and kept slightly tilted backwards.This will enable you to create a better shape.
  • For mature skin, use iridescent shade in limited quantity only.
  • If your eyelids are puffy, do not apply iridescent or frosted shades in light or white color. Use soft matte colors.

How to Apply Eye Makeup to Small Eyes

for those who are have bigger size of eyes,here stated the steps to get small size of eyes by applying make-up

Step 1:

  • Prepare your eyes for makeup.
  • Before applying eye makeup, eliminate any undereye swelling by applying cold compresses to your eyes for ten minutes. A package of frozen vegetables will work well for this purpose. Any fluid retention around your eyes will cause eyes to look smaller.

Step 2:
  • Begin with an undereye concealer.
  • Dark circles under the eyes can make small eyes recede even more. Always start with a light application of undereye concealer in a shade that's slightly lighter than your natural skin color. This will give the illusion of larger eyes while providing a nice base for eye your shadow.

Step 3:
  • Choose the right shade of eye shadow.
  • If you want your small eyes to pop, choose an eye shadow shade that contrasts with your eye color. If you have blue eyes, brown shades are flattering and create the kind of contrast that makes eyes look larger and more significant. Purple shades do the same for brown eyes. Never wear a shadow that's the same shade as your natural eye color and avoid choosing a shade that's too dark as this can cause small eyes to recede even more. With small eyes, you need contrast to enhance them. Apply your chosen shade of shadow to the crease of the eye after applying a lighter shade such as a champagne color to serve as a base. The light shade will help to open up the eye and will contrast well with the darker shadow.

Step 4:
  • Line your eyes carefully.
  • To make small eyes stand out more, keep your line thin and avoid uniformly lining the entire eye. This will make the eye look smaller. Keep the liner concentrated along the outer third of your eye and extend it slightly up beyond the corner to lift and open up your eyes. Avoid using a dark, overpowering shade of liner.

Step 5:

  • Curl your lashes.
  • Curling your lashes will help to further open up your eyes and make them look larger. Once this is done, apply loose powder to your lashes before applying two light coats of mascara. The powder will prevent clumping which can further overpower your eyes. Apply mascara to upper lashes only to make eyes appear larger.

Step 6:

  • For evening, you can also apply a light, shimmering shade of eye shadow to the inner corner of your eyelids. This will open up the eyes and add additional sparkle and emphasis.
