In cosmetics a shadow is a color 2 or more shades darker than the base color. It is used to suggest or accentuate recessed areas of the skin. With many types of makeup, a shadow color can be made by mixing the base foundation color and neutral grey makeup; though dark browns, reds, greys, or blacks may also be appropriate for fantasy effects. The higher the ratio of the choosen mixer color, the darker/deeper the shadow will be.
