One of the coolest things about being a human is we’re ever changing and evolving. This means that one morning we could wake up and suddenly decide that we want to switch something up — and that “thing” could be our look.

If she spoke a little too fast for you, also no worries. Here are the key points to keep in mind:

· Start with a base or thick concealer. It will give your eyeshadow something to “stick” to.

· Make sure your base or concealer has no creasing after applying it.

· Use an eyeshadow brush to apply a color of your choosing.

· Flick the brush to remove any access powder.

· Dust your brush over the color of shadow that you want and then dab it onto your eyelids.

· Once the eyeshadow is applied, blend it over the crease of your eyes.

· Use a lighter shade for the part of your eye that’s above the crease.

And you’re basically done (after applying a couple of coats of mascara, that is).

Once you’re feeling confident with these steps, here’s a YouTube that can take things up a notch as far as adding more colors.

All of this might seem a little intimidating at first but after a couple of tries, you’ll get the hang of it.

Enjoy your season of shifting and transitioning. Should be fun. #wink
