Good post., I usually do the lighter shadow on the lid first, then the outer corner and crease....does it matter ??

I usually use a smaller brush for the inner lid, a med. size for the outer corner, and a large one for the crease. Then I use the larger one to blend it all together. First Pic are the Small & Med. brushes, and the large one is the 3rd brush from right in the 2nd pic.

That is very interesting.....usually I always apply the base eyeshadow first - then the dark.....they're saying....apply dark 1st....then....blah blah.....does it really matter? Especially if you know the look you are going for in the 1st place....correct?????
