Start with a base coat, as you would any other type of makeup. Loose powder works wonders for this purpose.
Blend. Blend. Blend. That cannot be stressed nearly enough. You will be surprised at what wonders blending can do for a botched eye shadow job.
If you want a dramatic look, dip the tip of your eye shadow brush in water and then in your shadow. This makes the color deeper, more dramatic.
Choose colors that make the colors of your eyes really stand out. Brown shadow for brown eyes. Blue shadow for blue eyes and yes, green shadow for green eyes. It doesn't have to be clown-bright; subtle shading will do just fine.
Applying a lighter shadow to the inner corner of your eye and a darker color from the middle of your lid to the outside can help your eyes appear bigger, and further apart. This is great for people who are self conscious about the closeness of their eyes together.
If you wear glasses, learn how to apply eye shadow accordingly. This means that you should keep the drama to a low roar, staying away from dark liners and smoky shadows.
