    Women usually determine their makeup based upon their outfit. Choosing the wrong makeup colors or style can ruin the entire outfit. That is why it’s important to choose the right makeup choice.  We've all spotted women who didn't have a clue how to apply their eye shadow. But we've also saw women who know how to apply it properly and they look put together and beautiful. Don't you want to be one of those women? Of course.

   Putting on your eye shadow correctly isn’t that difficult. It’s just a matter of finding the right technique and look for you and your personal style. It takes a few tries to get it right. Here are some tips.

1. Always apply a base coat on your eyes just as you do to the rest of your face. Loose power works or you can apply your foundation to the eye area. It gives a nice even palette to work with.

2. Blend, blend, and then blend some more. I can't stress this enough. Try an experiment. Blend one eye and then just use a brush and apply the other eye. You'll notice the difference and never forget to blend again.

3. If you want dramatic eyes, take your eye shadow brush, dip it into water, then into the shadow, then apply. It will give you a much deeper, dramatic color.

4. If you have blue eyes, wear purple, violet, taupe, gray, deep blue, and black. Funky colors include fuchsia, turquoise, and silver.

5. If you have green eyes, wear purple, plum, forest green, brown, and khaki. Funky colors include light green, gold, and bright purple.

6. If you have brown eyes, wear champagne, copper, brown, apricot, khaki, and beige. Funky colors include royal blue, tangerine, hand hot pink.

7. Everyone can wear navy, powder blue, and charcoal. Fun colors include silver.

8. Apply a lighter shadow in the inner corner of the eye to reflect and make your eyes look younger.

9. If you want your eyes to appear larger, use a light color on the inner corner, and a darker shade in the middle of the eye area.

10. Practice until you get the application of your eye shadow down to a science. When you get good, your make up will look more natural and more polished.

11. Apply your dark shadow only to the eyelids from the lash line to the crease in the eyelid. Apply your medium shadow from just below the eyelid crease to the brow bone.

12. Highlight along the brow bone. Doing it this way will make your features stand out naturally and beautifully.

    So there you have it. With these top tips you now know how to apply your eye shadow so you will look your best. Remember that while you're practicing all these tips, that you should take notice of what works best for you. Practice by yourself, or practice with a friend if you find it easier to ask someone else's opinion. If you make your face more youthful looking with wrinkle creams, then any makeup that you have will be so much more effective.
