i thought this would be a good idea to put down the basics of eyeshadows. you can randomly post in here when you remember a simple, basic technique or any info at all.
hopefully everyone will benefit from this thread
this is what i learned from my favorite makeup book, makeup makeovers by robert jones.
eyeshadow: applied either lightly as a gentle color wash or as a more dramatic layering of color and texture to enhance and add shape to the eyes.
frost: used to describe eyeshadows that have maximum sparkle and super-shine; referred to irridescent; don't use on mature skin because it'll draw attention to fine lines
highlighting: first step in three-color layering technique for the eyes; everything you hightlight comes "toward" you and helps draw attention to specific area
matte: used to describe eyeshadows that have no shine and appear flat
metallic: used to describe eyeshadows that have a shiney, metal finish
midtone: neutral, natural eye color that you sweep across eyelids to help define and shape eyes; should be natural extention of your complexion and is second step in three-color layering technique

powder: pressed or loose; matte, shimmer, frosty, iridescent; blend well
creme: matte and shimmer; great for a wash of color; mix with powder for intensity
liquid: shiny, metallic finish; hardest to use; doesn't blend easily
matte is best for creating natural look; best finish for midtone; contains higher level of color pigment; works well for reshaping/defining eyes
shimmer offers great, sheer coverage; subtle sheen and give hint of sparkle; won't collect in fine lines; ideal for mature skin; works for highlighting recessed areas of eyelids; dark shimmer shadows are great for adding drama without being as harsh as deep-tone mattes
frost gives much more opaque coverage and feature a white or silver sparkle; easily sinks in wrinkles
satin is in between matte and shimmer; shinier than matte, but not as shiny as shimmer; works well on all skin types

Blue, Pink, and Purple Tut
It's my first tut . I know they aren't the best quality photos, but I tried .
For my eyes I used: Rimmel Eye Twist(the light pink side), Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box(Fishnet, Ransom, and Peace), Prestige e/s in Love, L'oreal HIP e/s in Flare(the pale color for highlight), HIP creme liner in black, eyebrow pencil, lashes, mascara
I've done this same look with different brands of eyeshadow before, you just need a bright blue, a pinky purple, a deeper purple, pink, and a highlight color.
Everything else: CG loose powder, Avon mineral blush in Golden Glow, l'oreal Fairest Nude l/s
Bare face to begin with -bright red lips and all
I save eye makeup for last since it's the most time consuming, so I put on powder, blush, lipstick, and penciled in my brows
Put some loose powder under your eyes if you're worried about fallout. Then put on your primer of choice.
This isn't absolutely necessary, but I find it helpful. Use an eyeshadow crayon/jumbo pencil to draw your desired eyeshadow shape. I do it so that I have a pattern to follow to keep the shape even on both sides. I used the Rimmel Eye Twist for this.
Next, put the blue shade(Peace) on the inner 1/2(or 2/3) of your lid. I usually apply my shadow wet.
Apply Pinky Purple(Fishnet) shadow to the outer lid and in the crease.
Apply both shadows in the same order on the lower lashline-Peace on the inside, Fishnet on the outer part.
Start applying the dark purple(Ransom) at the corner of your bottom lashline. Travel up along the outer edge of your eyeshadow and take it into the crease a tiny bit.
Apply the pink(Prestige Love) along the top of your shadow, but don't go too far up. It's mainly there to help soften the edge of the purple.
Apply highlight and start blending. Only blend at the lines where colors meet-don't blend over everything and wind up with muddy looking color.
Apply liner and mascara afterwards(or falsies in my case)
