Hi, I'm Kristen Packard and today I'm going to teach you how to work with three different colors of eye shadows. What you'll need for this is a professional makeup brush and a palette. Look for one that has a light color, a mid-tone color and a darker color. What you're going to do first is load your brush with the lightest color and then on the model you'll want to apply the lightest color all over the lid. Once you've applied the lightest color all over the lid you'll go back in to your mid-tone color. Apply it liberally on the brush. Tap it off to get any excess off and then you'll start working in the crease. And the crease is when you open your eyes right where the skin folds when you open your eyes. Look down for me. So I'm just working that color into the crease. Into the corners. So it's going to kind of look like a waterfall. You'll have your lightest color on the bottom and then your mid-tone in the crease and then you'll work your darker color like a v into the corner of the lid. So now I'm going to go in with the darkest color. Apply a little on the brush. Tap it off and almost draw a v on the model's lid, working a little into the lash line and up into that crease. Just going back and forth and really blending the color in. A nice trick I like to do is to take the lightest color at the very end and just tap it, close your eyes for me, onto the lid to create a nice highlight. That really helps open up the eye. Again, I'm Kristen Packard and today we've talked about how to use three different colors of eye shadows. You'll want a professional makeup brush and an eye shadow palette that has a light tone, a medium tone and a dark tone. Thanks for watching.
