Eyeshadow Placement Tips That Will Change Your Makeup Game

1. Transition shade

Applying a transition shade in the crease of your eyelid is the first step. This color should be a few hues darker than your skin tone to create depth and dimension.

2. Lid color

Apply your desired eyelid color to the mobile eyelid area. This is the portion of the eyelid that is mobile when blinking. 

3. Outer V

To add definition and create a longer shape, apply a darker hue in a "V" shape to the outer corner of your eyelid. Blend the color into the crease to create a seamless transition.

4. Inner corner highlight

Applying a shimmery or light hue to the inner corner of your eyes will accentuate their brightness. This will give your eyes a subtle sparkle.

5. Lower lash line

Don't neglect to also accentuate your lower lash line. You can apply a coordinating eyeshadow shade or a soft eyeliner with a pencil applicator for added definition.

6. Brow bone highlight

Highlight the brow bone by applying a light matte hue or a highlighter just beneath the eyebrows. This will assist in lifting and emphasizing the contour of your eyebrows.

7. Blending

Blending is essential for creating a seamless eyeshadow appearance. Use a spotless blending brush to blend the colors together and soften any harsh edges.

8. Experiment with different finishes

Experiment with various eyeshadow finishes, such as matte, shimmer, satin, and metallic, to create distinct looks and add depth to your eyes.

9. Consider your eye shape

Certain techniques, such as applying a darker hue to the outer corner or concentrating shimmer on the center of the lid, can be used to accentuate the shape of your eyes.
