1. Apply eye cream. I recommend “All About Eyes” from Clinique. It will get rid of puffyness and dark circles.
2. Gently apply concealer all around the eye area. Make sure to get in the inner corner. I like “Studio Finish” from MAC because it camouflages and also has spf 35.
3. Smooth on “Primer Potion” from Urban Decay all over eyelid and up to the brow bone.
4. Take an eye shader brush (I prefer MAC’s) and dip it into a green eyeshadow (you can substitute the colors). Apply on your lids only, not all the way to the top.
5. Clean off the brush, then take either a really light gold or silver and apply on the eyebrow bone as a highlighter.
6. Then take a contour brush (I recommend Smashbox) dab it into a dark purple shade and create a “C” shape on the corner of your left eye into the crease. Then it is very important to blend all the colors. This brush will be helpful for blending. Repeat on the other eye (the other way around).
7. Line inner eye with either Kajol or black pencil eyeliner.
8. Line your eyelid with a cream liner by placing your pinky on your cheekbone to get a steady line. You can extend the outer corner for more of a catty look. I recommend cream eyeliner from Clinique.
9. Apply any dark eyeshadow with a thin brush to lower lid and smudge.
10. Finish off by curling your lashes and applying mascara. I recommend “Dior Show” by Dior.
