How to apply eye shadow for turning on the charm?

Eye shadows are used to add a mystical charm to your eyes. You must ensure that the eye shadow you choose enhances your eyes and does not dominate them.

If your eyes are too close together, apply the shadow from the middle of the eye lid towards the outside.

If the eyes are in a hollow, apply the shadow on the whole eyelid as far as the underside of the eyebrow and then shade it off with the finger.

If fine lines surround your eyes, shade off the shadow towards the outside of the eyelid. Apply a little shadow beneath the eyes, along the lower lash line to give your eyes a subtle glamorous look.

The color of the eye shadow gets a shade lighter when applied on the eyes. So, apply eye shadow sufficiently.

Apply the shade starting from the inner corner of the eye covering the lid and below the brow bone.

Build on this with the darker color in the crease, from the centre and brush till the end of the eye brow.

Once you have mastered the art of applying eye shadow you can display stunning eyes in front of everyone. Be prepared to be eyed by all.
