The function of eyeshadow is to give dimension and add depth to your eyes, provided it’s applied appropriately. It also accentuates your eye color and makes it look bigger.

To make the application easy, you can dampen the tip of your brush with water, then dab it on the eyeshadow and reapply. This will make it highly pigmented and make your eyes pop. Also, apply the same shade on your brow bone to highlight it as this will make it more defined.
  2. Use a blending brush to apply the mid-tone shade above the crease, blend it from the outer corner of the eyes inwards.
  3. Making use of the dark shade, contour the outer corner of the eye by applying it into the crease. Be careful not to blend in too much because it should not be higher than the mid-tone shade.

Step 4: Curl Your Eyelashes
