Eyeshadow Combinations

I've recently decided to post my eyeshadow color combinations on here and give them local names from the VA/DC/WV/MD area in which I currently thrive. I feel that I'm capable to create a number of eyeshadow styles/combinations using the makeup that's in local drugstores or even the neighborhood Wal-Mart.

I don't believe that you need high priced eyeshadows to give you a great look or a similar look to that of another. It just takes a little know-how, time, patience, practice and the desire to create. If you want a certain look, I feel you just need to use similar colors. You don't need the same exact brands to achieve this although I will share with you where I got these shadows from in my color combinations.

Feel free to share photo's of these combinations, comments, ask for additional help and so forth. I hope to post more combinations in the near future. Below are my first two combinations, the colors are inspired from this area as mentioned above.

i've tried those eyeshadows by mabelline, but they don't last thorughout the day! do you know of a good primer? i think that's what they're called.... :)

I've found with using an eyeshadow base too really helps pump up the non-$$$ brands! I'm lovin' the Blue Ridge Sunset combo.

I've been using the Loreal Paris "De-crease" item and this works okay although I'm new to the world of primers so you can probably find a better one. I also apply my eyeshadows on as deeply as they can go using the rinky-dink applicator brush it comes with and an eyeshadow brush for blending...aside from the days I'm keeping it casual.
