Step 1 

It’s important to prime the eyes and prep them properly for the eye shadow colours to stick and last long. Use the eye primer to cover the entire lid and let it set.

Step 2

Use the eye shadow on the lid from the lash line to the crease line and blend it well. Use little colour at a time and use more for more colour resolution.

Step 3

Next, is to apply a slightly darker shade to the crease line or the socket bone. This should be applied in a semi circular manner and then blended out towards the brows. This will accentuate the crease line and give more definition to the eyes. The same colour can be used at the lash line of the lower lid, this makes the eyes look larger. 

Step 4 

You should always apply the eyeliner from the inner corner of the eyes and go towards the outer corner of the eye. This further defines the eye shape.
