Step by Step Guide

1.) Apply a base eye shadow, using a brush or a sponge, preferably a matte-nude shade. This will serve as the primer.

2.) Apply a slightly darker shade (a brown or a dusk shade) in the middle of your eyelid.

3.) Apply the darkest color (preferably black) at the outer ends of the eyes.

4.) Carefully blend all three colors with a soft brush or sponge. You’d know when they’re perfectly blended when edges of each layer are no longer defined.

5.) Curl the lashes and apply mascara and eyeliner.
