Picking the perfect eye shadow here may just serve just to become one step simpler and here we have a shade of roses to purples colder to warmer tones. And I'm going to show you how you can take from the lighter tones to the darker tones and create a few looks to go out for Wednesday.
So we’re going to start by applying with the right brush for a shadow, the thicker and heavier duty eye shadow brush and then we have a smaller one here for a fine tuning with the smaller parts of the eye. So starting with cool colors here I’d apply the nice cool it’s kind of light lavender color onto the eye with the thicker brush. We’ll take the smaller brush here and we’re going to grab two shades darker. Now this is nice to point to the inside to bring attention to the inner part of the eye and to give it some drama.
And now take the really dramatic colors and you can take it in and really it decipher the fine points of the eye. It’s nice to have a little drama especially when you have a dark eyebrow color and we’re going to lift the brush right in and that’s going to give it a contour line which is very, very nice for a visual effect and as simple as that. You have a look on the eye playing with warm tones to darker tones. Now if you want the added drama which is always fun for the evening. We are going to start with the thick brush again and we are not going to start with the cold. We’re going to start with the middle tone which is going to be on the palette here and we’re going to apply that as a base again all over the eye.
Now we want to give this that run way kind of a cut walk, cougar eye look so you got to open your eye and we’re going to follow the same color that I used beneath the eyes so if you look up and then we’re going to take the color.
I’m going to put it beneath and then I’m going to still use the thick brush and I’m going to take the kind of chocolate smoke color and then we’re going to apply it to the top and we’re going to accentuate the eyebrow brown again.
And then once again we’re going to also accentuate the inner part of the eye and grab attention to contour to the nose and then finally we’re going to take the deep dark tone or we’re going to add that to the corner here and we’re going to give it the bit of sex appeal. And then I’m going to take this smaller brush which is clean because I just want to blend and also pull the color from the outside of the eye into the inside here and there you go, as simple as that, the chic, the hot, the dramatic eye.
