Follow these steps to perfect your eyeshadow application
1- By applying a foundation over your face it gives you a good base to work with. A small amount goes a long way, always keep it light and gentle.
2- Apply an eyeshadow primer over your eyelids from the lash to the eyebrow. A primer will help the shadow to last longer and minimize the number of application.
3- Use an eyeshadow to apply the MEDIUM shade from your eyelashes to your eyelid’s outer corner.
4- Use a pencil eyeliner to mark the eye just above your upper lash. Move from the inner corner to the outer corner slowly.
5- Use the brush and go over the area where you applied the eyeliner to diffuse the color just a little bit
6- To make your eyes look deep, apply the dark eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eyelids.
7- On the brow bone apply the lighter color to highlight your eyes and make them shiny and beautiful.
8- Also apply the lighter eyeshadow from your eyelashes to the outer corner of the eye at the center of the eyelids.
9- Blend the color a little bit so that there are no hard lines
10- Apply mascara to your upper and lower eyelashes to finish off the look
