Today’s shadow school technique is a pretty popular one.
You could just do this every time you did your makeup and you’d pretty much be good to go.
It cannot be screwed up. It is unscrewupable.

Step One: Cover the entire lid (from lash to brow) with a shadow primer. I used MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre because I wanted to get a really clean base color.
You could also use a light color of shadow instead if you like, I prefer a creme because it looks more natural to me.
Step two: Use a crease brush (or for a softer look you can use a fluffier brush) and dip into a mid tone shadow- MAC Soft Brown Pictured (or pretty much any shadow that is darker than your eyelid – beginners should start with something neutral)
Step Three: Find the hallow area between your eyeball and your brown bone. Put your brush in that hallow and just wipe back and forth (much like a windshield wiper) until it’s blended to your liking.
Step Four: Do all of the other millions of things you have on your to do list! Cause your shadow is DONE!
Why I love it: It creates depth to the eye making it look BIGGER and frames your eyeball which is especially great when you use a color that makes your eye color pop.
Pair it with: Just about any other makeup style you want. Winged liner, heavy liner, no liner….it all looks great!
Who looks fabulous in it: Pretty much everyone. To women who already have a very prominent crease and/or deep set eyes I would try it first with a very light color, the dark colors might over accentuate too much:)
HAPPY HUMP DAY!
