So, I'm going to make an effort to start posting fully-labeled eye shadow photos as well as photo and video tutorials. I know many of you are familiar with these terms, but I want be geared toward the people that don't necessarily know a ton about makeup too!
These are terms that I will likely reference frequently, so study up! ;)
lid area - the most common place for shadow to be applied, the "middle" if you will.
natural crease - the naturally occurring fold of skin between your brow and lashline. Often times where shadow will "crease."
hollow - the deeper part of your eye area, where the eyeball itself recedes back into the socket. Often times this will be in the same location as the natural crease, but not always, as you can see on me.
orbital bone - that edge of bone that marks the edge of the eye socket itself. Directly beneath the brow bone.
brow bone -the area of bone beneath the brow, sometimes referred to the highlight area.
Most of these terms are self explanitory, however, I just wanted to clarity "Duct."
Duct: This refers to the area of skin surrounding the natural tear duct of the eye; not the tear duct itself.
For the above look, I used Scaredy Cat Cosmetics "Chakra" on the lid, Glittersniffer Cosmetics "Detroit" on the hollow, Scaredy Cat "Teal Dear" on the orbital bone blended into Urban Decay's "Polyester Bride" on the brow bone. Glittersniffer's Julie on the duct.
Hope this helped!!
