Eye makeup with three shades:

Professionals use three shades usually while applying eye makeup. Three shades are selected usually for this type of eye makeup.  One color is darker is shade, second one is medium shade of same color and the other one is lightest of all. You can use different colors as well according to your dress. But always remember that blending and use of proper shade and proper area on eye is very important otherwise it may worsen your looks.  For applying eye shadows in three shades follow three steps:

  1. Apply medium shade of eye shadow on your eye lid or eye socket area. Spread darker eye shadow evenly on your eye brow. Blend eye shadow properly on your eyelid it will give neat finish and also make your eye makeup lasting for hours.
  2. Apply darkest shade of your selected eye shade on your crease line of eye. Make thick crease line on outer corners of eyes while apply less eye shadow on inner corners of eyes.
