Unlike the gold eyeshadow we see last year, the color this year is more metallic with a bit of cool undertones. Below are two different ways to wear it as requested by Shellie.

Look #1: Gold + Silver = Cool Look
As spotted on the Chanel Spring 2007 runway, gold + silver eyes are oh-so-hot right now! To recreate the look, apply the silver color of Chanel Lumiere Dartifices ($75) on your entire upper eyelid and the gold color from the same palette on your lower eye. Alternatively, you try MAC Perverted Pearl eyeshadow and Jane Goldilocks.

As for the rest of your face, keep it as bare as possible. Use a tinted moisturizer and concealer to cover up all flaws and even out skin tone. Brush an eyebrow gel on your eyebrows. Draw a thin line along your upper lash line and apply several coats of black mascara. Finish the look with a slick of peachy pink lip color.

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but I say makeup is what every girl should befriend, especially a good brown eyeshadow.

When used properly, brown eyeshadow can add depth to your eyes and make them look a gazillion times bigger. Plus pretty much any eye color and skin tone would look good with it. Need proof? Check out the following example taken from the latest issue of Easy Finder:


Before and After

Here are the different ways to apply different kinds of eyeshadows as requested by Joselle. Click here to learn more about the different kinds of eyeshadows.

Powder
Always pat (never rub) when you apply powder eyeshadow. That way, the color will adhere to your skin better and stay more vibrant. You can use:

* Sponge tip applicators – pick ones with small pores
* Brushes – try MAC #239 Eye Shading Brush
* Fingers

I have gotten quite a number of requests on how to do eyeshadow on single eyelids. I personally have double so I’ve cooked up a few things that can help. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions!

Tips
* To create the effect of a crease in the lid, use a deep color at the inside corner of the eye and extend it horizontally midway between the lash line and the brow bone. Blend and blend some more to avoid a harsh line.

* Skip dark liner on the bottom lash line because it would only close up your eyes even more. Use eyeshadow instead and line only up to the midpoint from the outer corner. You can also try bright colors for lining. Teal and violet will make brown eyes pop.

* When using eyeshadow, make sure the color shows up even when your eyes are open. In other words, apply it a little higher than you would on someone with double eyelids.

* You can use lighter shades to open up the eye area. Remember also to highlight your brow bone and inner v.
