If your eyes are hooded, place your crease colours a bit higher to open your eyes up. Also try to apply brighter/lighter colours in the centre of your lid to open your eyes up. Depending on your eye shape, shimmer on your brow bone can make your brow bone look bigger (draw light to your brow bone if it droops to low which isn't too attractive)

I like to change up the color combos... i.e. Light shades rather than dark, or mix it up completely different as to what this post suggests when I am feeling bold and vice versa!!!!

So helpful! I know I'm just supposed to know this stuff, but I really like reading these how-to articles
