One thing that's happening is that you're overriding one style with another by using the same selector twice.

If you're applying more than one shadow to an element you need to separate each declaration by a comma and that you're specificying the horizontal and the vertical offsets separately.

.main-header {
  box-shadow: box-shwdow-declaration-one,
  box-shadow-declration-two;
}
