The first step in any eyeshadow look is to prep your lid. Start by applying a primer to your lid using your ring finger (the heat from your hand will melt it in), then sweep your favorite eyeshadow over the primer to set it. For the best results, choose a primer that matches your skin tone (or is at least one shade lighter).
Once you’ve finished priming your eyes, it’s time to start adding color. We recommend choosing a neutral shade for your lid and a darker hue for your crease. A light brown or gray can give you a natural look, while a dark brown or purple can make blue eyes pop. Whatever your eye color, it’s important to play around with different shades and combinations until you find a combination that works for you.
After you’ve settled on a color for your lid, apply a medium-toned shade above your crease and blend it softly upward to reduce harsh lines. This is called your transition shade. Then, use a darker shade to work into your crease and outer corner for a smokey effect. Finally, use a highlight shade to brighten your inner corner and brow bone.
