Eyeshadow comes in a million different forms. There is powder eyeshadow, creme eyeshadow, glitter eyeshadow, smudge eyeshadow, liquid eyeshadow that comes in a tube (usually metallic), the three-tone eyeshadow (one shade for eyelid, one crease, one eyebrow bone)and eyeshadow that comes on a wand and dries on contact.
It is typically worn by girls, and more recently by scene boys. Eyeshadow is great-when used correctly. Eyeshadow, especially black a/o up to the eyebrows, is very dangerous territory.
I got some new gold creme eyeshadow to wear under my brown liquid eyeliner
