In your adventures up and down the cosmetic aisle at your drugstore or favorite department store, you have no doubt seen the kits with a palette of three colors or four colors of eye shadow packed in one compact. The manufacturers do this for you to take the guess work out of finding three hues that work together in the same color family - light, medium and dark. You can certainly use one color for your entire eye area for a simple and clean look, but once you know how to apply all three colors you will be surprised at the gorgeous eyes you will see looking back at you!
Apply eye primer to clean eyelids; this will prevent your makeup from creasing throughout the day. Over the primer, apply a flesh tone eye shadow or concealer from lash line to brow bone. The concealer serves as a base that allows the colors you use to start with flawless skin, a sort of clean canvas, in the eye area.
