You only need the following:
- Dark eye shadows
First, you need to put on a primer. It is important to keep your makeup in place and not crease your eyes.
Lift your eyes by defining your brows. You can then start putting on the base eye shadow on the larger part of your eyelids. Makeup artists suggest using metallic bases this season, aside from your usual brown, black and gray options. You can begin by putting on the base at the center of your eye socket and carefully blend it upwards. Start with a little amount at first and you can add more later if you like.
Take your darker eye shadow and start applying them on the corners of your eyes. You can use a tissue to cover your eyes and prevent the dust from falling into your face.
You also have the option to apply some light eye shadows into your lower lash line for an added drama. Finally, put a two to three coats of mascara into your eyelashes.
