Using your black eyeliner pencil, draw along your crease line and upper lashline, connecting the outer corners as shown in the first step. Using a brown eyeliner pencil, draw a semi-circle on the crease of your upper eyelid, filling in only the outer corner.

Using a medium-to-dark brown eyeshadow, create a deep crease and diffuse it with an eyeshadow brush. Avoid choosing colors that are too bright, or if you have very fair skin, too dark.

Avoid black eyeliner and mascara for daytime wear and settle for dark brown ones or playful violets.

The two shades of green should now be blended into a uniform color. They traditionally include three different shades of eyeshadow: a dark, medium, and light shade. Using a black eyeliner pencil, gently define your upper and lower lash line creating a subtle wing.
Next, apply the metallic blue eyeshadow. Next I am going to go in with the shade Roxanne and apply it under and slightly on the black shade I applyed to sort of mix them together. Make sure you highlight your eyebrow bone and the inner corner of your eyes with a lighter shade of eyeshadow to make your eyes look more awake and youthful.
At the center, apply golden eyeshadow and blend properly. Apply a primer on your eyelids. Carefully apply your mascara to avoid getting any on your eyelid. Don't forget to blend outwards and the edges of your eye, so that your shadow softly fades into your natural skin tone.
