How do you choose your eye shadow color? If you want to bring attention to your eyes, use an opposite color from your eye color.
For green eyes, use copper, maroon, or purple.
For blue eyes, use copper, gold, peach or maroon.
For brown eyes, use green, blue, pink or purple.
If you want to bring attention to the rest of your face, such as to your lips, make your eye shadow the same color as your eyes.
For natural looks, a color wash can be a nice touch. Use a gentle, single color on your lids in matte or shimmer. Remember, shimmer shows texture so if you have fine lines, use matte shadows only.
Most eye shadow palettes have matching colors in them. Use the darkest color in the crease of your eye, the medium color on the eyelid and the lightest color just under the browbone.
If you want to match your eye shadow to your outfit, do a color wash in a light color across your lids only. Be liberal but do not do a tri-color smokey eye that matches your outfit unless you want to look like 1983. Remember: modern is simple!
Tip: Doing your eyeshadow before applying your face makeup lets you clean up any color particles that may fall under your eye during application. Then you can proceed with the rest of your look.
Artificial eyelashes are a great option for enhancing your look and making your eyes look bigger. Especially fun for photo shoots, weddings and holiday parties, putting lashes on can be easy, if you know how.
First, get lashes that are soft and have a thin band. This makes them easier to bend to your eye shape.
Next, measure the lashes by comparing them to yours. They should not be longer than your natural lash line. If they are longer, cut them on the outside end to fit.
Apply mascara to your eyelashes. Let it dry.
Add clear or black eyelash glue, depending on your preference, to the artificial lashes. Let the glue get tacky before you adhere the band to your natural lashes.
Stick the lashes to your lashes, not to your eyelid. Press with your fingertips and let dry.

Done. Now you can go party. Your lashes should stay until the morning when you gently peel them off.
