Just to share how I do my ONE eyeshadow look. I find that using a rich brown/ neutral shade is the easiest for this look. You can use any brown eye shadow you wish. I think even purples, greens and black/ greys can work out fine too. The application/ blending method is the same.
I normally use MAC Tempting e/s, Cocomotion p/g, NARS Mekong, or Lola Lola, and lately I think i nuovi's Techno is also a great choice. Super creamy and pigmented. It feels like NARS eyeshadows, and I would say it is a good dupe for Lola Lola, even though they look nothing alike in the pans.
Step ONE: Pick out color using a stiff blending brush, like the 217. This way you don't need to use a separate blending brush later.
Step TWO: Apply color closest to the lashes. Because this is when your brush is packed with the most color,
and you want the color to be most intense closer to your lashes.
Step THREE: Spread it over your lids, blending softly upwards. Take note that I didn't have to go and pick out more color from the pan, because it is so pigmented! :)
Step FOUR: Use a bigger fluffy brush to apply highlighter and also blend the 2 colors together. I am using a MAC 225.
The color I am using is i nuovi's Spotlight which is a pale gold shimmery shade.
This is what you should get.
Step FIVE: Line your eyes. I usually use my Loreal Superliner, but here, I am using Clinique Quickliner for Eyes in 07 Really Black.
I also smudged the line using the other end of the liner. I don't usually line my lower lids unless I am going for a full on smokey dark look.
Step SIX: Apply false lashes. Or apply mascara. Do your lashes. I used YSL Faux Cils on lower lashes.
Well, I think that's about it. Some pictures for the overall effect/ look. I think the eyeshadow blends out very nicely, because the 'blended area' shows off the undertones of the eyeshadow perfectly. It looks kind of like MAC Woodwinked e/s. On the cheeks I dusted MAC Pink Swoon, and also Solar Riche around my face. Lingerie Pink on my lips.
I hope that you find this tutorial helpful. You can build up the color and make it more intense etc.
Thanks for reading!
