eye shadow techniques

I have heard of many types of eye shadow techniques. I watch you tube videos on these, but sometimes it gets confusing. I was just wondering if members could WRITE down the instructions on diff techniques? like the idiots guide to eye shadow I guess.


For example: Smokey Eye


1. use base color

2. use main color put on lid

3. take darker color and make V and blend into crease

4. use highlighter around and under the brow



For example:

take one color put it on half of lid. take another color put it on other half of lid


I hope this makes sense what I am asking. I would just love to know some basic basic steps to try different designs.


PS.. I was watching Eva Longoria on David Letterman. And a you tube makeup guru, "itsjudytime" showed how she did it.

In short... black on lid, dark blue on top of that. and then highlighter. and then blended and added sparkles.

I am going to suggest to you to watch Jessica Harlow's channel on Youtube. Hearing what you have to say about eyeshadow, I think you will really enjoy her. She is very creative, and uses a variety of techniques, that you can really learn from. As IslandQt said, it doesn't have to be so uniform, the best thing about makeup is you have free reign to create pretty much whatever you want. You can come up with some beautiful things by experimentation. Check out Jessica it seems like you would enjoy her.
