The best thing I ever did was to toss the little foam applicators that came with my shadow, and invest in some nice brushes.
For summer, I like a nice sheer color all over the lid, with a hint of shimmer applied right under your brows to make 'em pop and give the eyes a lift.
Then I line my eyes with a darker shadow and a liner brush. I think it's actually easier and looks better than my pencil liner.
For nighttime, I might sweep a darker shadow into the crease of the lid. This is a definite in the wintertime, but I usually skip it in summer. If you're wearing gloss or a pale lip shade, go for it. With dark lips it can look like too much.
Remember- figuring out what works for you is key...and when in doubt, just make sure to blend.
