Using an eyeshadow primer

Using a lid gloss

Before applying a lid gloss, choose a good base color. Choosing a complementary color for the eyeshadow base is important. Although glossy lids look great in summer, glossy lids are perfect for cool girls.
Using red lipstick as eyeshadow

For example, if you’re looking to warm up your lids, you can use a softer shade to contour your lids, while bold red lipstick will give you a dramatic smokey eye.

Blending eyeshadow requires using a small amount of product at a time. Make sure each layer is blended well before moving on to the next layer. You can also apply a dark shade to create a more dramatic look.

If your eyelashes are short, use a thin line of eyeliner as your guide and gradually thicken as you approach the outer corner.
