Available in an impressive variety of colors, eye shadow is to beautify the eyes, to define the eye shape and to enhance the iris color. It comes as pressed or loose powder, cream, stick or liquid formula. Cream eyeshadows are more difficult to use because they crease very fast.
Applying eye shadow should take into account the geometry of the eyes, given that the dark nuances always “close” and the light shades “open” the sight.
Iris color will be accentuated if the eye shadow color will be complementary.
Eye shadow applying is made by brush, sponge applicator or with your fingers.
Before eye shadows applying it will create a powder base foundation for them to last longer.
