Learn How to Apply Eyeshadow for Those Formal Occasions

For many women, wearing eyeshadow is simply a way to look and feel more beautiful. However, it is important to remember that colors chosen for eyeshadow and the way it is applied would vary depending on the degree of formality for the occasion. If interested in learning the right application for eyeshadow, this article will certainly help. Whether wearing eyeshadow during the day or evening when you meet up with friends or when going out with someone special at night, it would be helpful to learn the right way to create a look that coordinates with the occasion. In this article, we wanted to provide some basic information for putting on eyeshadow in both situations.

Of course, the venue would be one determining factor as to the color of eyeshadow chosen, as well as the application. For instant, if you and a date were going to the opera or some type of Fine or Performing Arts event, eyeshadow could have a little more flair. If you were going to a romantic dinner or evening concert, you would still want to apply the eyeshadow so it is dramatic but somewhat toned down. For instance, if your night would be spent with girlfriends to see a movie, go bowling, or even hit one or two pubs, the color and application would be very different from the color and application used for a formal event.

Remember, depending on your plans, certain techniques for application would be used, as well as colors and even types of eyeshadow. Another important consideration when it comes to applying various eyeshadow products is to use appropriate brushes. While this might not seem like a big deal, you would be amazed at the look of eyeshadow applied with poorly made brushes versus high quality brushes. Therefore, we recommend you start by purchasing the best eyeshadow brushes you can afford, preferably those made with bristles of natural materials.

Now, let us say you had a romantic dinner planned with your boyfriend or husband, and afterwards, to see a theater play, because this occasion is more on the formal side, you would have the opportunity to apply eyeshadow that results in a slightly dramatic look. In this case, you could learn to apply eyeshadow to create smoky eyes. When done right, your beauty would be obvious, both elegant and sensual. Because the application of eyeshadow to create smoky eyes involves darker colors, just remember not to go overboard on the rest of the cosmetics worn.

If you and your girlfriends were planning a get together, perhaps to try a new restaurant that just opened and then out dancing, you could still create a beautiful look but this time, rather than use black or dark gray for smokey eyes, consider using softer green, brown, or even hazel colors. However, if you choose smoky eyes, which means using darker eyeshadow, the application needs to be smooth and even. Additionally, go light on the lower lid eyeliner, choose a medium weight foundation, apply blush that is seen yet subtle, and instead of wearing dark red lipstick, choose a medium mauve or coral. Learning how to apply eye shadow would allow you to create the perfect look for any occasion.
