Are you looking for a great daytime look? Are you learning how to apply classic eye makeup? See the information I have below on this great CLASSIC EYE MAKEUP look. It's easy and versatile. Almost anyone can pull this off. For a more detailed guide on eyeshadow application for your particular eye shape, click here.

a. upper eyelid

b. inner eye corner

c. crease

d. lash line

e. brow bone

Now, the basis of the classic eye makeup look is to use only 2 eyeshadow colors. That's it! Neutral colors work best but as you become more confident and daring, use more colorful shades. If you're clueless on which makeup colors to pick, I have 2 designated webpages to help you with this process. Start off by determining whether you are a "WARM" or a "COOL" . Then, get the specifics on eyeshadow colors you should be wearing. To get this detailed information on eyeshadow color selection, click here.

Alright, let's get down to business.

1- Prepare your eye area by following the steps on this page . You need a good canvas to work with as eyeshadow application will be much easier AND look MUCH BETTER!

2- Line the eyes with a pencil eyeliner , liquid/gel liner , or eyeshadow using an angled eye makeup brush. Line upper and/or lower eyelid as desired.

3- With a medium eyeshadow brush, apply the base color you have selected on upper eyelid (a) from diagram above. Pat base color from lashline (d) to crease (c). Blend edges well.

4- With a crease brush, apply the deeper eyeshadow to the outer 1/3 of the eye lid in the crease (c), blending as you go and building the colour gradually.

5- Touch up eyeliner if necessary.

6- Apply highliter eyeshadow (a seperate light shadow shade) to the brow bone (e) and inner eye corner (b).

7- Apply 2 coats of mascara to upper and lower lashes.
