New Shop, Please Critique And Help Me Out!
Nobody will search for hot damn eyeshadow. Put in the title and the tags what you're selling, not what you think a cool name for your product is, because you are what's telling Etsy and google what is listed. Hot damn doesn't work.
also, have you looked to see if eye shadow and eyeshadow yield different results, because maybe you don't need both, and also in the listing I looked at you had one of those twice, once as a subcategory and once as a tag. you only need it once. And phrase tags are better than single word tags, so have red and eyeshadow isn't as good as a tag that says red eyeshadow.
you should do some research on titles tags and relevancy in the forums. There's are thousands of posts on the subject.
Also, it's not proven that the most important words have to be the first three words in the title. I"m sure if you do a search for red eyeshadow the items on the first page won't all have those words at the very beginning of the title.
Joining a critique team is a great idea: www.etsy.com/teams/search/?search_query=critique&sort=relevancy&sea.... The Forums aren't as suited to critiques. That said, I was quite wowed by the fantastic bright colors in your shop! Those eye shadows look almost good enough to eat or paint with. :)
Your photos are quite strong. I think everyone here makes a good point about the importance of titles and tags in order to get found in search.
