If you don't already know this, expressing yourself and show casing your unique beauty is a very satisfying experience.

There are two basic ways to apply eye shadow in shape shading, "rounded" and "winged". Now you want to determine what the best shading shape in your case is. You can try applying one shading shape (rounded) to one eye and the other shading shape (winged eyes) to the other eye (this would save you time). Then go look in the mirror and see which one looks best. If you don't have much room between the eyelid creases of your eye and your eyebrow then apply eye shadow using the winged shape (unless there is some sagging).
