Start with clean eyes making sure there’s no makeup residue. Once you’ve cleansed your eyes, prep and moisturise with Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado. This will help reduce puffiness and prepare your eyes for the makeup to follow.
Lightly dot concealer on your eyelids and the area around your eyes and blend well. This will cover visible veins and even out your skin tone. Plus it will provide a good base for the makeup to stay in place for longer. We used the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD.
Your base will be the golden eye shadow. Using the Base Shadow Brush from the Vega Make-up Brushes MBS-06 (Set of 6) apply the golden eye shadow on the entire eyelid. Take care not to cross the crease line.
Using the Deluxe Crease Brush or a fluffy eye shadow brush blend the golden eye shadow. You don’t want the harsh lines to be visible. Blend well till all the shadow is blended well.
Highlight the highest points of your eye area. Just sweep it on your brow bone. Make sure you blend it well. Highlighting the brow bone adds dimension to your face.
Complete your look by applying Eye Liner and Mascara. You can take it to the next level by wearing falsies to add more drama to your look.
