If the eyes are the window to the soul, some women have decided to put up shockingly blue curtains. One thing is certain, the way in which you choose to emphasize your eyes will be one of the most noticeable features of your make-up job. Learning how to best apply eye make-up can be the difference between looking beautiful and looking a little bit ridiculous.

Many people assume that the first step to applying eye make-up is to start with a shadow shade that catches your eye. Actually, you will want to start by making certain that your eyelid is even-toned by applying a concealer over the lid before applying any shadow at all. Experts say that to keep your shadow from smudging over the course of the day, you will then want to choose a light shade that you can apply over the entire eye area, eyebrows to lashes. You can then apply a darker color over the lid of the eye, and perhaps a third color for defining the eye area as well.

When you are selecting a color for your eye shadow you will want to consider the color and the shape of your eyes, as well as the overall make-up look that you are trying to achieve. For example, if you have blonde hair or are a brunette you will probably want to stick with a brown or brown/black eyeliner and mascara, rather than going with a black option. Consider what shades of eyeshadow will bring out the color of your eyes the best. After all, the idea is to enhance your natural features, not cover them up with cosmetic products.
