How to Apply Dior Eye Shadow Palette

Eyeshadow is used to highlight the eyes by making them look bigger and brighter. Additionally, it can also be used to erase signs of fatigue and enhance the brow shape by adding a lighter or darker shade depending on the purpose. That is why eyeshadow is a must-have in every woman’s make-up bag.

 

The Basics

To achieve an eye look that is a Dior Couture Signature, it’s best to utilise all the shades in the eyeshadow palette.

  1. Apply the darkest eyeshadow shade on the lower row of lashes using an eyeliner brush.
  2. With an eyeshadow brush large, take the other dark shade and smudge it under the lower row of lashes.
  3. Use the luminous eyeshadow as a base all over the eyelid.
  4. Apply a lighter shade to the inner corner of the eye and below the brow above the eyelid.
  5. For an added style, apply a mascara lightly from the roots to the tips of the lashes.

 

For the Celebrity Look

Start with the highlight

Apply the lightest shade on the inside corner of the eye, centre of the eyelid and along the brow bone.

Add the darker shade

Where to add the darker shade depends on the look that the wearer wants to achieve. It also depends on the shape of the wearer’s eyes. Here is a quick guide on the eye shapes and which celebrities have them for easier comparison.

 

Eye shape

Eyes that are like…

Eyeshadow application

Round eyes

Katy Perry’s

Apply a medium to dark shade all over the eyelid to diminish volume of the eyes.

Almond-shape eyes

Beyonce’s

Apply a medium to dark shade all over the eyelid following the shape of the eyes.

Protruding eyes

Nicole Richie’s

Apply a light shade under the brow bone. With a medium shade, go heavy under the crease of the eye. Finish with a heavy eyeliner from the inner corners to the outside with a straight line.

Small eyes

Taylor Swift’s

Apply dark eyeshadow by creating a line in the middle of the eye towards the base of the lashes outwards. Be careful not to apply all over the eyelid. Follow by applying a lighter shade to the inside.

Hooded eyes

Selena Gomez’s

Apply a light shade on the inner corners of the eye. Follow by applying a medium colour on the hooded lid. Choose a dark shade for the crease.

Droopy eyes

Camilla Belle’s

Using a liquid eyeliner, apply to the base of lashes in a thin line. Also apply eyeliner from the inside of the eye outwards.

Monolid eyes

Lucy Liu’s

Same as with the hooded eyes, apply a light shade on the inner corners until the centre of the eye. Create a round shape by applying a medium colour above the crease from the outside of the eye. Finish with a dark shade the same with the medium but only until the centre of the eye.

Eyes that are close together

Kristen Bell’s

Apply light eyeshadow colour to the inner corners of the eyes and dark shade to the outer corners.

Eyes that are far apart

Uma Thurman’s

Colour the eyelid with medium or dark shade. Apply a medium shade from the base of the eyebrows to the inner corners of the eyes vertically.

Deep-set eyes

Keira Knightley’s

Use a light to medium shade only. A white kohl pencil can also be used to help open up the eyes more.

 

Other techniques

Once a wearer gets the hang of applying the basics of the Dior eyeshadow palette, experimenting with the other eyeshadow shades can be easy.

Cat Shape

To create a mysterious look, go for the cat shape by applying the darkest shade to the outer corner and brush the tip upwards. This will look like a large winged shape in the tip of the eyes.

Banana

To make the eyes look wider and the lid longer, apply a dark shade to the outer corner and blend with the inner corner.

Cut crease

At the crease, apply a dark shade to create more depth. Add a lighter shade to the lid.

 

Choosing a Shade

  • For conservative fashion types, try a shade that is near or similar to the eye colour.
  • For a bold look, choose shades that are in contrast to the eye colour.
  • Blue eyes are in contrast with orange, brown or other warm tones.
  • Green eyes are complemented by shades of purple and pink.
  • Those with brown and black eyes can try blue, green, silver and other cool shades.
