Eyeshadow can appear to be a difficult component of a cosmetic look. After all, there are so many different colors and brushes to choose from. Fortunately, even if you’re new to makeup, selecting and applying eyeshadow is simple. Try a natural eyeshadow look for everyday makeup that you may wear to work or to lunch with friends. If you’re looking for a more dramatic look for a night out, try a basic smokey eye, which just takes a few minutes to make!

Select a darker shade as well as a neutral color.
To create a simple, natural makeup look, you’ll only need two colors of eyeshadow: a base that’s comparable to the color of your skin and a deeper shade. While you can use any color you choose, a neutral shade that matches your skin tone will appear the most natural.
Use a foundation shade that is somewhat darker than your skin tone if you have fair skin. If your complexion is darker, use a hue that is a shade lighter to ensure that it stands out.

In the crease between your brow bone and eyelid, apply the dark shadow.
Sweep the brush in a half-moon shape from the outside corner of your eye to the crease of your eyelid, about 3/4 of the way down. However, do not apply the dark shade to the very inner corner of your eye, since this will make your eyes appear smaller. To mix in the color, keep moving the brush back and forth, or swipe your fingertips across the area many times if you like. Make sure there are no hard lines where the color ends. If you have hooded eyes, apply the darker shade slightly above the crease to make your top lids appear larger.
