Now, I have already done STEP 1 & 2 which means I have primed my lids and groomed my brows.But if you guys wanna see the pictures of these steps, click HERE for the previous post.
STEP 3 -
Take any gel liner (if you don't have one, you can use your pencil liner as well, but liquid liner won't work well here) and apply it on your lids till the crease line. It might look crazy and all over the place but it will clear up, I promise. You don't have to be neat in the application, just slap on the liner.
STEP 4 -
Now, using your ring finger spread the liner evenly and slightly smudge it around the edges.
STEP 5 -
Take a fluffy brush and pick up some brown eye shadow and apply it right over the edge of the liner smudge you have created.Apply plenty of the shadow and hide the black rough edge.
STEP 6 -
Using the same brush, blend out the brown shadow making sure the black underneath doesn't show.
STEP 7 -
I am using the same brush to pick up a matte black shadow as well. Apply the shadow right on your lids blending it in with the brown that you had just applied.
STEP 8 -
Take any highlighter color, matte or shimmery and apply it right under your eyebrows and blend.
STEP 9 -
Using a blending brush, blend out everything and make sure there are no harsh lines showing.
STEP 10 -
Take a precision brush and pick up the same matte black shadow and apply it below your lower lashes. Don't go all the way inside, just 3/4 of the eye would do. This gives a very complete look to the eyes.
STEP 11 -
Now, apply your liner, kajal and some mascara and you're done!
