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.
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
A reader requested guidelines on wearing eye makeup for contact lens wearers. I wear contacts (clear, color and circle lens) myself so here are a few tips you guys can use.
* Pop in your contacts before you apply any eye makeup. This way, you will be able to see more clearly and avoid any mistakes.
* Try not to rim your inner lash line to avoid tearing. But if you really need to do so, use a waterproof or smudge-proof liner. My picks are MAC Fluidline and Prestige Automatic Eyeliner.
* To avoid eyeshadow from dropping into your eyes and causing irritation, either use a cream formula or simply wet your brush before using powder eyeshadow.
* Pick a mascara with minimal flaking and smearing. I like CoverGirl LashBlast and L’oreal Voluminous.
* Remove contacts before you remove your eye makeup to avoid damaging them.

Hey ladies, sorry for not updating! I just got back from the world’s most awesome fashion capital, Milan. Jealous huh? Just kidding! Anyway, here is my little report on what’s hot in Milan (other than the Italian boys! *lol*)
Different styles are spotted all over Milan but they can be narrowed down to the following:
* Choppy with lots and lots of layers
* Long straight hair with bangs
* Variations of the mohawk (think fauxhawk, fanned hawk, deathhawk)
When it comes to makeup, the look is kept very simple and clean. Minimal colors are used on the eyes and lips and a monochromatic theme is the key here. Bronze skin is also a must.
As for accessories, you will never see a Milanese without:
* Aviator shades
* Chunky necklaces
* Dogs (they literally bring their dogs everywhere!)
I have always loved the 60s mod look. Graphic black and white shadow paired with lots of lashes is simply hot! And so here is me trying to do a similar look but with a twist. Instead of stark black and white, I used softer colors and of course, lots and lots of lashes.
