Whether you're trying to achieve a classic, subtle look or something a bit more dramatic, mastering the art of eyeshadow application can help amp up your look. A good eyeshadow style starts by applying a light color on the lid to create an even base and softly brighten your eyes. For added dimension, it's best to use a slightly darker shade in the crease of your lid, creating the illusion of higher arches (see below) for an eye-opening effect. Experimenting with color pairings is key to finding what works for you, so don't be afraid to play around until you get it right!

Want to make your eyes stand out? One tip you should absolutely follow is applying mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. Mascara can help give your lashes a boost, enhancing their volume and length, which can make them look even more lush and voluminous. To get the perfect lash definition, start with the outer corners of your eye before working your way inwards. This will open up your eyes for maximum effect. The finishing touch? Add some liner along the bottom and/or upper lines. False lashes are also an easy way to make your eyes look bigger and give your makeup an extra boost of drama. (Thank us later!)
