It is not difficult for modern girls to create flawless makeup without the participation of a make-up artist, because today manufacturers of decorative cosmetics offer such a wide range of products that there is no reason to turn to professionals. Shadows began to be used in ancient times, and to this day they are considered the best way to emphasize the beauty of the eyes, to visually change their shape.
