Before applying make-up, treat the eyelid area with a primer. This will allow the shadows to be evenly applied and will not allow them to roll. When choosing a color shadows preference should be given to light shades with a creamy texture – pinkish, mother-of-pearl golden, light peach, beige, sand, etc. Using this color scheme will visually enlarge the eyes.
The outer corners are rarely obscured by shadows. If necessary, brown or plum shades are used for these purposes. The borders of the color transition should be well shaded to give a natural look. It is recommended to lightly draw dark shadows along the lower eyelid to create swelling.
