Eyeshadow By Eye Color
Dark browns and taupes tend to work well on blondes. Green eyes look good in cooler colors such as deep purples and lilacs. Experts say the right shade of blue can make blue eyes pop, while lilac and purples are gorgeous on brown eyes and brown and olive-skinned women. If you have pink skin (as opposed to a yellow base), you should avoid pinky-purples. Jewel tones can be harsh on fair skin blondes.

6 Steps To Achieve The Look
Selecte you lipstick based on color and quality, you are ready to apply. Take your black lip-liner and trace the edges of your lips, making sure your lines are clean and precise. Fill in your lips gently with the lip-liner. This will hold your lipstick in place.
Take your lip brush and dab your black lipstick out of the tube. Gently apply the lipstick, using the brush. Take your time and make sure you have filled in the lip-liner completely. Be especially careful of not letting any pink from your inner lip show when you close your mouth. While you can apply black lipstick straight from the tube, this is risky as it often results in a smudgier, harder-to-control look and can run over your lip-liner. Some choose to apply from the tube anyway, since they want that harsher, heavier look.
Blot your black lipstick carefully using a tissue. Use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to straighten out any smudges at the edge of your lips.
These following steps are optional but can bring your whole look together. For a high shine, glamorous look, use a clear lip gloss. Apply the gloss to the middle of your bottom lip and press your lips together for a subtler shine. As there is nothing subtle about black lipstick, however, you may choose to carefully coat your full bottom and top lips with the gloss, using a cotton swab to clean up the edges. You will make a mess of your lip gloss, as the black lipstick stains the brush, so have a lip gloss solely for this purpose.
Instead of, or even in addition to, the lip gloss, you may choose to apply another colored lipstick over the black lipstick to give your lips an interesting hue. This is best achieved with a dark red or purple lipstick. This technique gives your lips a vamp look and while still bold, can soften the harshness of black lipstick and transform it into something truly glamorous.
No matter how you choose to wear black lipstick, your eyeliner is very important. While you should keep the rest of your makeup quite subtle, as the lipstick is the statement, you need strong eyeliner to balance out your face. Use a liquid eyeliner and keep the lines clean and bold. A cat-eye or other creative edging allows the face to be balanced but still allows the black to dominate your look.

Eye Road Map To Create The Perfect Eyeshadow Look
Brow bone. The brow bone is the part on your eye that needs to be highlighted, generally people will use a lot of shimmery pastel colors or very similar colors to your skin tone to open up the eye and catch the light.
Crease. The crease is the place in which you are going to blend the color that you used in your brow bone with the color on your lids to contour the eyes. To blend them you can use a color between those two colors or you can use the highlighter color to blend everything out. Think about a gradient going to dark shades to light ones, starting to the lid towards the brow bone.
Outer V. The “outer V” can help you to define your eye and correct some errors that can occur when you are playing with makeup. (like using to much shadows at the end of your crease and making your eyes drop a little bit) To find the outer V you need to imagine a line connecting the outer edge of your eyebrow with the outer part of your eye (that is one part of the V) and the outer part of your crease. To contour or blend the colors you can use a angled brush or a fluffy one.
Lid. The lid can be divided in 3 parts, inner lid, middle lid and outer lid. If you really like to play with colors you can apply the lightest color in the inner lid to open up the eye a little bit and you can add different colors in the middle and outer lids, just remember to put the darkest color in the outer lid. Now if you want a subtler look you can apply just one color in all the lids, this works really nice for a natural look or for a smokey eye.
Upper lash line. Here is where you can have fun with colorful eyeliners to bring out the lashes, or if you are looking for a sexy look you can create a cat eye with a black eyeliner, or gel and if you want to make your lashes look longer and beautiful, you can use a thin eye liner to delineate your upper lashes.
Waterline. There are 2 waterlines in your eye, the upper and lower waterlines. The upper one can be found underneath your upper lashes and people use to line this to make the eyeliner stand out. this process is called tightlining. Now the lower waterline is sometimes called the lower rim, because it is in the bottom rim of your eye. Apply products here can be difficult sometimes because this line is very watery and the colors tend to fade very fast. People usually line the lower waterline to enhance and attract more light into the eye, specially with a white color.
Lash line. The lash line can be divided in 2: Inner and outer lash line. You can apply different colors here. It would be nice if you use the same colors that you used to fill your lids.
Inner corner of the eye. This small place between your nose and your eye is where you need to apply a highlighting color to bring out your eyes. Make sure to blend well the color and use a very small smudger brush.
