Use a lighter shade and apply at the crease. Blend in the shades using a cotton swab. Use an eyelash curler and mascara to do your eyelashes.


To create an elegant look, apply brown or bronze eyeliner to lower eyelids. Use a neutral base coat over the entire eyelid. Use a single shade of eye shadow and shade the eyelid. Use a silver or gold eye shadow on the upper eyelid.


To create a soft look, use eyeliner on the upper eyelid only. Coat the eyelid with a base eye shadow. Use a pink or peach shade on the crease and blend in with a cotton swab.
