This is the first way I ever learned how to apply eyeshadow (courtesy of Avon and a birthday makeup party when I was 12). It’s simple, no-frills, but can be dressed up or made more dramatic by using more saturated (or even contrasting) colors.
Believe it or not, that’s two browns (Epilogue and Plot), layered horizontally.
You can also use the second color as a thicker eyeliner.
Contrasting colors give it more pop!
The Smokey Eye look plays off this motif, with a darker color blended horizontally into the crease to create the appearance of a deep-set eye. But that’s another eyeshadow look for another week!
