Eyeshadow is one of the most versatile items of make up that you can get. A subtle flush of colour swept across your eyelids can brighten your eyes, and you can create a stunning and natural day look or the most glamorous and dramatic evening style with the same colours, just utilising slightly different techniques. Here are some of our favorite eyeshadow tutorials for you to work from to create your own amazing looks.
Shimmery Smokey Eye
This is a basis I have used for years, if you have great depth between your eyelid and brow. If the depth is smaller use a light colour in the middle and darken the outsides as u see in the diagram.
This gorgeous and sparkly look is simply perfect for a party or a special occasion! Starting with a medium shade in a neutral colour, sweep the shade right across the lid, working from the inner corner to the outer corner. Gently blend this shade out to a darker shade at the outer corners for a smokey style. Use a highlight across the brow bone and in the inner corners to add lift, and finish the look off with a touch of sparkle patted on to the centre of the eyelid.

A dark silver is worked into the inner corner, and again at the outer corner, blended softly to create this amazing gradient we see at work here, with the neutral shade glowing in the centre of the eyelid. Finish with subtle eyeliner on the top and bottom of the lid, and add false eyelashes for a dramatic finish.
Gold and Pink Glamorous Style
This gold and pink eyeshadow look is utterly beautiful – especially on blue or green eyes! Starting with a shimmery gold right across the eyelid, blend in your pink shade at the crease and outwards to create the lovely smokey effect. Gently work your eyeliner from the outer corner towards the centre of the eye, smudging softly, and finish with a thick black eyeliner along the bottom eyelid. Lashings of mascara will seal the deal!
