NOW THE HOW-TO
1 Prime your face and apply your foundation and powder.
2 With a dark eyeliner pencil to create a foundation by coloring your eyelid up to the crease. Draw a shape that flatters your eye shape, slightly extend the pencil out.
3 Using a smudge brush, soften the lines of the pencil up to your crease.
4 Tap a deeper toned eyeshadow onto the pencil.
5 Highlight under your brow with a soft shade, sweep it from the brow bone to the crease.
6 Erase the lines of the highlight and the color on your lid by mixing your favorite shades that will compliment this look. Be sure to blend out completely.
7 Line the upper and lower lash lines, connecting both lines. Smudge out the bottom line and add the same shadow that was added to your eyelid to blend. Go back in the liner and line your upper and lower waterline for added drama.
8 Add at least 3 coats of mascara to both your upper and lower lashes, be careful not clump your lashes together. Falsies would also be a great to add on!
9 Keep your cheeks neutral by opting for bronzing powder over blush. Use the bronzer on your temples and jawline as well.
10 Apply a neutral gloss to your lip.
11 If you want, add a bit of a highlight on your cheek bones, down your nose, and your cupids bow!
