How to apply eyeshadow... winner of my poll

My poll closed with EYESHADOW being one of the most voted make up item that everyone found difficult to use, so i  made a step by step picture tutorial on how to create a simple but effective look with neutrals and browns. Hope this helps and enjoy! my second tutorial on how to apply eyeliner will be up shortly too ^^

The products i used were: Anew skin transforming primer which i got from Avon ,Kryolan eyeshadows in Highlight and Sudan, my favorite brown mascara, Maxfactor eyeshadow in Almond and Charles fox brushes.

I first applied the skin primer using a brush all over my eyelids and near my brow bone. 

Make sure the primer is blended and distributed well

Straight away i applied my neutral light brown eyeshadow base all over the lid

Now that the base is done, I used a darker brown to create a 'V' like shape on the lid,  i patted the colour on with an eyeshadow brush but making sure i didn't use too much because i didn't want it OTT

Blend, blend, blend!!! until your happy with the overall look

To create dimension to the look i used the highlight colour which was like an off white colour,  using a smaller brush i applied the colour on my lash line

I used the highlight colour on my brow bone

And i used the highlight colour on my water line (optional)

Looking down view of the finished look

Looking forward view of the finished look

NOTE: the colours i used was for a day look, i also showed the techniques of how to apply eyeshadow correctly so hopefully this has helped so now you can experiment with colours and get people talking!
