1 Wash your face, making sure you wipe off any dirt or old makeup. Always start with a newly clean face before putting on makeup.

2 Apply all your makeup except for your eye makeup. This includes foundation, blush, concealer, lipstick, lip gloss, etc. This also includes doing your eyebrows.

3 Apply a light tinting makeup/eye shadow to your eyelids. This eye shadow color should be neutral, not an exotic color. 4 Apply a little brown eye shadow to your eyes. This serves as a base color for the rest of the shadows. Try to go for a medium colored brown. Don’t choose a brown color that is too light, or else it doesn’t work as good for a base color. On the other hand, don’t choose a super dark brown, or else it will show through the rest of your eye shadow.

5 Use a dark brown eye shadow to divide the areas between the eyelid and under the eyebrow. This will make your eyes appear larger and clearer.

6 Apply your favorite dark shadow to the upper eyelids. For example, black, navy blue, or another darkish color. If you decide to use black, don’t pack it on too heavy.

9 Apply several coats of dark mascara to the eyelashes. Several layers of mascara will produce a more intense look for your eyes, but don’t over do it, or your eye lashes will be all clumpy. You can also apply fake eye lashes if you want.
