In this article I will be talking about the positioning of colors when doing eyeshadow and also about how to properly blend eyeshadow. First I will begin with the positioning of the colors on the eyelid.

 Before putting any colors on your eyelid it is always good to make sure you have the colors you want to use and also have an idea of what you would like to wear. When picking out your colors it is always good to make sure that you have a light pinkish white, beige or just plain white. Once you have chosen your colors you may begin. The first placement of the color should be all over the lid including the crease and the brow bone, the best color to use for this placement would be the light pinkish white or beige. The next step is the crease, now depending on the colors you have chosen u may put the lightest color of the group of colors you have chosen in the crease. For example, if you chose blues then the best color to use for the crease is a light blue such as a sky blue. Now that you have found the light color within your group of colors you may put it in your crease. Once you have placed the color in your crease you may put a dark color on the outer corner or your eye, now when putting the dark color on the outer corner of your eyelid, you are going to bring the dark color into your crease but do not bring it to the inner corner of your crease. Once you have placed the color then it is time to blend everything together.

Blending is very easy and very quick. The best brush to use for blending is a brush that has flexible bristles or a blending brush. When blending you need to start from the outer corner to the inner corner of your eyelid. You want to blend everything even the color on your brow bone. When there are no traces of where one color ends and the other begins that how you know that the colors are blending properly. Now that you have finished blending take a look at your eyeshadow, if you that you need more color in some areas feel free to add some color but just remember to blend everything once you are done with the placement of the colors.
