Hi kenchi, An earth-toned eyeshadow duo saves from having to rummage for colors. Use the pad of your middle finger to apply aligh-hued shadow onto browbones, then use an applicator to blend a darker shade from upper lashlines until the creases. Happy my lotting lighter color should be the base if you don't prepare the blending.

thanks, this are really helpful tips that you have shared with me. I am a dark skinned person and what i usually notice whenever I used an earth toned shadow it doesn't brighten my eyes as I wanted to. I think my skin colored over shadows the the shadows that I don't find the effect appealing. I think i will go with a lighter based shadow blended with a color that will boost my eyes more. thanks again.

depending on your skill level, it kind of depends to me atleast. if you're begining id say the light all over up to the brow bown, the medium up to the crease, and the darkest colour in the crease. but in general, i say if you're up to expirementing, any color anywhere goes i say. you can just see what works for you
