Step 1:

First, apply a primer all over your eyes. This will create an even surface for the eyeshadow to ensure application is smooth and neat. It will also hold the eyeshadow in place so the smokey eyes last all day.

Step 2:

Next, apply a nude eyeshadow all over the eyelid including the crease. This will act as a highlighting agent, instantly widening your eyes and making you look more awake.

It’s important to apply a nude eyeshadow to prevent your eyes appearing sunken.

Step 3:

Using a medium brown eyeshadow, apply to the outer corner of your eyes. This will contour your eyes and softly frame them.

Step 4:

Next, using a dark brown eyeshadow apply along the top and bottom lash line, connecting the two at the outer corner of your eye.
