Different types of eye shadow styles

Any blog entry discussing how to put on eyeshadow will list some basic styles that are used for eye shadow makeup. You may also mix and match different styles or come up with your own, but if you are not having any ideas in that regard, you can safely stick to the ones discussed below to create a dashing look for any occasion.

Snow Globe

The snow globe style is perfect for a woman having flat eyes as it helps to render the eyes a more rounded appearance. If you want a more dramatic look, you can use a shimmer around the middle of eye lid as well as a matte hue along the outer and inner parts of the eye. Use a flat stuff brush for creating this look. Do not forget to blend lines where the shades meet.

Fan shape

Fan Shape

The fan shape eye shadow style uses three distinct shades to create the overall look, namely, yellow, orange and brown. The brown and yellow shades are darkest and lightest respectively, whereas orange falls in between them in terms of intensity. This style goes well with any eye shape, and works especially well for women whose eyes are placed closely to each other. Putting the yellow shade around the insides of the eyes creates an illusion of distance between the eyes. Use the flat stiff brush to pat each shade gently, and blend the colors together so that there are no lines.

Smokey eyes

The smokey eyes look is quite popular and women often inquire about how to create this style in numerous articles offering advice on how to put on eye shadow. Use a flat stiff brush to pat a dark shade all over your lower eyelid. Then apply a light or medium color with a flat stiff brush to blend the crease areas and soften the overall look.
