Your eye makeup should make your eyes look significantly larger. This means that your eyeshadow should be applied in a way that makes it look like your eye is casting a shadow on your face.

Never use any more than three colors. How do you choose those three colors?

There are two different groups: warm colors and cold colors. A warm color would be a red, brown, orange, light pink, etc. Cold colors include blue, black, silver, purple, gray, etc. Never mix the two different groups. Wear cold with cold and warm with warm.

Let's try together:
We'll use chocolate brown, light pink, and white.

The first color you apply should be the darkest (brown) and should be applied over the full lid. In the crease, put your medium color (pink.) Then, right under the brow, spread the lightest color (white.)

Another way to do use the very same colors:
Apply the pink eyeshadow to the full lid. Make sure the whole lid is covered evenly. Then, apply the brown eyeshadow to the outside V of your eyelid. This means outline the outer half of the lid from the middle of your crease, to the outer corner, then to the middle of the lash line. Using the lightest color, blend (using an eyeshadow brush) from the crease up to the brow.
Use this particular method if your eyes appear to be closer together than most.
