How to use eye shadow to achieve that perfect 'come hither' look

Every day, millions of women brush on eyeshadow without a thought. In order to achieve that flawless 'come hither' stare, however, you need to use a little technique.

Follow these simple steps to score perfect peepers every time:

1. Choose the right palette. Your eyeshadow choice should complement your look, whether you want to highlight your eye color or that fabulous minidress you'll be wearing. Using a palette is a good idea to ensure the perfect color match.

2. Blending is key. However, knowing how to blend isn't so easy. First, start with a light-colored matte, and brush it over your entire lid, all the way up to your brow. Using a good quality brush will help makeup adhere to your skin without caking. Then, apply a slightly more vibrant shade to the lid. Finally, use a third, more pronounced color over the crease of your eyes, to give them a little definition.

3. Brush on a coat of your favorite mascara. A double coat will help your eyes pop, but wait at least 30 seconds before applying a new coat to avoid clumping.

Take care of the skin around your eyes at the end of the night by wiping off the shadow with a makeup removal product, like Elemis FreshSkin Make-up Away Cleansing wipes. To keep your eyes in great shape, give them a little love using the Absolute Eye Mask, also by Elemis.
