When it comes to applying eye makeup, we might choose a color based on our skin tone or hair color, and we might try to contour the shadow to flatter, but have you ever done makeup thinking about the shape of your eyes? Just like we dress for our body types, we should contour for our eye types! I’ve been traveling all over lately – to Colorado, Italy, New York – and the one thing I made sure to pack was the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette. It comes with instructions on how to do makeup according to your eye shape. Not sure what yours is? Check out this video here.
The palette comes with 14 neutral shadows that are guaranteed to flatter each of the six main shapes. I love its double-sided brush. There’s a fluffy tip for matte hues and a flat one for shimmers – to provide you with complete control over how much you want to glisten. All you’ll need to complete your look is mascara, which Smashbox has conveniently included in the set!
So what do you think? Want to try the palette for yourself? Smashbox is giving away 500, plus an additional 1,000 eye shadow primers, and even a trip for two to LA! To enter, just take a photo of your eye shape and post it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or the contest site with the hashtag #shapematters. You can submit as many photos as you want – just make sure your settings are public, so that the photos show up on the Smashbox website. Smashbox Full Exposure palette at Smashbox for $49.

My full evening look. Dress by the incredibly talented Russian designer Natasha Zinko, worn with Ralph Lauren cape, Gareth Pugh gloves and Louboutin boots.
For day time, I used the muted matte shadows and highlighted sparingly along the browbone. You must try this palette, it is universally flattering for all eye shapes!
