Applying eyeshadow is something anyone can do with the right tips and tricks. First, if you want longer lasting eyeshadow choose those that are color-rich. Second, pick colors that are flattering. The emphasis should be on your eyes so the color is very important. You want your eyeshadow to softly contrast the color of your eyes. Don't pick a color that exactly matches your eyes. Pick colors that are close. At the same time you want to be sure that the color works with your skin tone.
Bright, bold colors are not trendy. Keep your colors simple and natural. If you have green eyes, choose brown shades. If you have blue eyes, choose a softer brown or tan. If you have dark brown or black eyes, choose charcoal or brown colors. Blending colors together is important so look for eyeshadows that come with two or more colors. The colors are already picked out for you so you don't have to figure out which colors work together. Of course you can keep it simple by just applying one shade to your eyes. However, blending colors makes your eyes stand out more.
