Two Colour Eye Design

Firstly when using this eye design you will need a neutral skin tone colour and a deep shade to add dimension, if you are not too concerned with a natural look then you can use which ever colour you like. This look will work best if you have a round eyeshadow brush to work with.

  • Taking the lighter shade on an eyeshadow brush, you can dust this from the lash line up to the brow bone. Ensuring that no patches of skin can be seen peeking through the eyeshadow.
  • Next taking the deeper shade create a < or C shape to the outer corner off the within the crease line. A < will create a sharper more glamorous look, where as the C shape will create a softer more natural look.
  • Once you have created this shape remember to blend until any harsh lines have disappeared.
  • Remember to use a little shadow at a time when creating depth so that you don’t accidentally apply to much and having to start over.
  • If you are finding that the eye shadow is difficult to blend, you can add some of the lighter shades to the edges and continue to blend.
  • You can use the lighter shade as an inner eye highlight as well.
  • Use a small amount of the dark shade to blend underneath the lower lash line.
