Powder eyeshadow shades are always best applied with a brush. Why? Because sponge applicators can get flimsy really fast and are often an unreliable way to apply shadows. They also attract bacteria and can fall apart easily. How many eyeshadow colors do you have minus the sponge, that fell apart long before you'd run out of powder? Isn't that a drag?

And although powder shadows are great, creamy eyeshadows are the top dog! Because they contain humectants, your colors will look lusher and more radiant. The caveat is that they can smear if worn too heavily. They are still a makeup artist's best choice!

Use these eye shadow tips to add personality to your face. Your EYES don't have to be dull and drab. JAZZ them UP and CHanGe IT up often! PLAY UP your EyeS every chance you GeT. Why not? Right?

Lining Your Eyes with Shadows

You don't always have to line with liners. Use slanted makeup brushes to draw out lines. Exaggerate lines as you move toward the outside of the eyes and compliment with mascara.
