Hi, I'm Jilladair from Jilladair Cosmetics, and I'm a master makeup artist and this is how to do layered eye shadow. These are two super silky eye shadows. On the left we have Tremor which is a medium to dark brown that has gold and silver flecks in it. On the right we have a matte medium brown called Mudslide. So when layering eye shadows you want to pay attention to a couple things, what are you trying to achieve. Usually you are trying to achieve depth, depth of color, changing the color, so right now let's achieve some depth. So first we're going to take Mudslide which is a matte color and we're going to go here in the crease. We're going to create a little V here and this is going to put some depth in the crease and it's going to help contour the eye. So we're just laying down a bit and we've primed the eye ahead of time. We're just going to lay down a bit of the one color and this is going to create a shadow and it's going to help us layer our color. So this is our first color and if Rachel opens her eye you can see that it's added some depth to her eye. So we're going to clean off our brush and then we're going to add Tremor which is a brown color and it's got some sparkle in it. It's kind of a finishing color and we're going to add a little bit here on the lid so you can see the difference in the color. So there we go, we can see the difference in the color and now we're going to layer this color over the top of what we already laid down with Mudslide so that we can see how deep Tremor gets and the difference when we layer it over the top of what we already put down. So you see I'm putting the same amount of the second color all over the lid but because I've already put a first color down you see how much darker it is and the depth that it got if she keeps her eye closed for a second, you'll see, it's lighter here and it's much darker here because I layered it over another color. So open your eye and there you have it. You see the depth that it created in the contour area and in the crease area and that's a great way to layer eye shadow. I'm Jilladair from Jilladair Cosmetics, and this was how to do layered eye shadow.
