I’ve only used two eyeshadow palletes. I know most people do not have as many options. And in general they have just mattes and some basic satin shades. I really don’t know why people love matte shadows so much. LOL!

I started with my eyes, because eyeshadows (even the high end ones) always have some fall out. It is easier to prepare your skin after the eyes. Your cotton sticks, foundation and concealer gonna help you to correct any problems. And it is important to wear a moisture eye creram before any primer.
After applying your eye primer, use shadow 1 to make a base to the other shadows. It’s a beige matte shade. Then, use shadow 2 only on your lid. It is a satin beige with champagne undertones. The number 3 should go on your crase and little above it. You must use the lighter shade of brown as a transition color and gradually construct layers in you crease with the darker brown shade. Blend your crease with soft circular motions to create dimension. And softly smoke the corner of the eye. Use the number 2 under your brow to highlight it and apply the same highlighter you gonna use in your face on the interior corner of your eyes. I also used the mary-lou manizer in my lid with my finger, just subtle taps. The next move is to use the brown eyeliner just to contour your watermark and very close to your superior lashes. Then, use the number 3 shades to blend your eyeliner only close to your inferior lashes.
The preparation of your skin gonna be really easy. First, It is important to hydratate your skin. I used Thermal Water. Then, I started to make up my face with a pore minimizing primer and after, a high cover foundation. I choose this kind of coverage because in Rio the wether is really hot and humid. But you can use a medium or light one if you feel more confortable. That’s also why I always use a setting spray. Use the foundation before your concealer. After this, set your face with a powder. Then, is time to contour and highlight.
In everyday looks, It is really important to contour and highlight in a very subtle way. In a way you look naturally glowy and your best features are accentuated. So, I’ve decided to post a picture with orientations to highlight, contour and blush your face.
After contour, just apply some bronzer and mascara. Put on a pink lipstick. You’re ready to go! This is the final result:
As you can see, I choose some different colours that I tought would suit me better.
