Need Help with Coordinating Eye Shadow? Here's a tip...

Larger eye shadow palettes can be overwhelming to use for many makeup wearers. Knowing which colors work best together is often the challenge. Would you like to learn a trade secret? Many cosmetics companies place "mini eye shadow palettes" within the space of the full product.

For example, I created this featured look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Eye Shadow Palette. It contains 14 shades, which might feel intimidating for someone inexperienced in using colorful eye shadows. However, if you break this palette down into quadrants, you'll discover at least six variations of playful options.

You will see that each quad is color coordinated for you.

These arrangements are there to serve as a guide to help you get started in using eye makeup. You are always encouraged to create any combination you'd like; however, if your struggle is understanding the best direction to follow, this tip provides a way to get you started.

How many eye shadow palettes do you own that you never touch because you don't understand how to use the colors?

These are the kinds of concepts I teach through our Candied Y.A.M.S. Makeup Artistry, Ladies Night In Virtual Makeup Parties. These are interactive, learning experiences in small group settings where "play" is encouraged for all levels of makeup experience. If you've been feeling stuck, confused, or unmotivated to explore the options in your eye shadow palettes, then your presence is requested at our next event. See our calendar on our Bookings Page. Here's the [link].

If you could use some professional guidance with figuring out the kind of eye shadows to enhance your eye color or bring out your best look, we can help! I highly recommend you to take advantage of our Droppin' Jewels Virtual Makeover Experience: the Sapphire VME.

You will receive 1x1 personalized instruction, based on your eye shape, color, and desired eye makeup look. The best part is you will finish more knowledgeable and familiar with your eyes and how to dress them up best.
