Eye shadow is the perfect complement to eyelash extensions. When applied correctly, eye shadow can add another dimension of beauty to the face through the use of color. All though eye shadow is one of the staples in a woman's arsenal by following the steps outlined below a woman can get consistently great results.
The first and most obvious step to achieving optimum results from eye shadow is to use a high quality product. Most eye shadows are made from mica powder, a colorful mineral base, mixed with a hardener such as clay. In general, eye shadow with higher clay to mica powder ratios are harder and do not blend easily. While eye shadow with lower clay to mica powder ratios are easy to apply and blend perfectly. Lower ratios are considered to be higher quality eye shadows because of the higher content of the colorful mineral base, mica powder. A good indicator to determine if you have a quality eye shadow is the brush test. To perform the brush test simply try to apply your eye shadow with a brush. If your eye shadow is easy to apply with a brush than you have a good quality eye shadow. If it does not apply well, perhaps you should consider trying other types of eye shadow.
Once you have a good quality eye shadow you need to choose the right color to wear. The color chosen should not be arbitrarily picked but rather determined by the clothes you are planning to wear. The idea is to add color in a subtle way that will get you attention but not the wrong attention. By matching a color in the outfit you are planning to wear your appearance will flow and the eye will not focus on one spot.
It is best to apply eye shadow with a brush to softly blend colors together to obtain a dynamic look. If you are using a good quality eye shadow using a brush is easy and fun. But choosing the right brush is just as important as choosing the right eye shadow. The ideal brush is a flat soft bristle brush. The flat brush makes it easy to apply the eye shadow with precision while having soft bristles smoothes transitions between colors.
