First, you'll want to apply an eyeshadow primer to both eyelids gently with your fore and middle fingertips for a smooth application and strong hold throughout the day.
Next choose either a cream or powder blush based on your preference of color prominence.
If you’re only looking for a just a hint of color, dab an eyeshadow brush against a powder blush and apply gently to your eyelids. For those looking to go bold with a heavy color pop, use your fingertips to smooth over a cream blush. This will add severity to your lids and embellish your natural iris.
It is important to note that not all colors will do your eyes the justice they deserve. If you were born with a set of baby blues, brown and orange shades will make your eyes pop. My green-eyed gals, stick to pinks, purples and red shades while brown-eyed beauties should opt for blue tones and gold for ultimate enhancement.
I’m not overly adventurous myself, so I find that a matte pink shade will do the trick. It’s subtle, yet prominent. However, feel free to always experiment.
Tip: If bold actually isn’t better, and the look you thought you wanted totally backfired, tone down a blunt shade by applying a light brown shadow over the color blush coating to soften the severity. You’ll have magnified eyes without the jack-in-the-box effect.
