Always use a base you can use your foundation or concealer for this but using and eyeshadow primer as well will show up the pigment in your eyeshadow much better which means you will use less eyeshadow.
Blend, blend and then blend some more. I can't stress this enough. Try an experiment. Apply your eyeshadow and blend one eye with a clean fluffy brush and then use a brush and apply on the other eye. You'll instantly know what I'm talking about and you'll never forget to blend again.

If you have green eyes, wear purple, plum, forest green, brown, and khaki. Funky colors include light green, gold, and bright purple.
If you have brown eyes, wear champagne, copper, brown, apricot, khaki, and beige. Funky colors include royal blue, tangerine, and hot pink.
Everyone can wear navy, powder blue, and charcoal. Fun colors include silver.
Apply a lighter shadow in the inner corner of the eye to reflect and make your eyes look younger.
If you want your eyes to appear larger, use a light color on the inner corner, and a nude liner on the water line.
Practice until you get the application of your eye shadow down. When you get better, you will start to notice your makeup will look more natural and more polished.
Apply your dark shadow only to the eyelids from the lash line to the crease in the eyelid. Apply your medium shadow from just below the eyelid crease to the brow bone.
Highlight along the brow bone. Doing it this way will make your features stand out naturally and beautifully. Oh and don't forget to blend with that fluffy brush!
