First Ashley's eyelids were primed to make her shadow last longer and to create an evenly toned canvas. Next, her makeup artist applied a neutral shadow on top — Mini Mark It Stick For Eyes in Shell ($6). Then, she simply lined Ashley's eyes with the black shade from Keep It Going Eyeliner and Shadow in Entourage ($10).
On its own, a neutral shadow might seem a little boring, and a black liner might seem a little harsh for the season. Yet, when these two staples are paired together, they play off each other nicely for a gorgeous contrasting effect. It's a simple tip for sure, but it's definitely a technique both easy and chic.
