Take a Baby Step Toward Bold Eye Shadow

I consider myself a risk taker when it comes to makeup choices. Not to say I'm rocking the black lipstick or emerald eyeshadow every day, but I like to sample all the colors of the rainbow – that's what they're there for, right?

Well, here's a tip I picked up from celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff: When thinking of adding a bright new shadow shade for a whole new world, pick up a cream pencil in a similar tone first and apply it thickly on your lid. A heavy hand means easy does it on your wallet. If you like the color in small(er) doses, you can go back and invest in similarly hued shadows for double the fun.

This is definitely what I do when I want a pop of color...I am not into bright eye shadows, so liquid liner does the trick for me.

you can always use a wet liner brush and use a cheap eyeshadow as eyeliner. the cheaper shadows don't usually have the same intensity as more expensive shadows, so it's a less-scary (and less expensive) way to try out a new color.

Great tips, although I'm not much of a bright shadow girl.
