Fill in and perfect brow shape using an angled brush and a Matte Brown Shadow.


 Using a concealer brush, apply a shadow primer to entire eyelid.

 To create a base for the smokey eye, apply Luxe Creme Liner to lid.

Smudge the creme liner from close to the lash line upwards.


Pat Mineral Eye Shadow in "Concord" on lid and sweep upwards.


Sweep  Mineral Eye Shadow in "White Gold" on brow bone.

Using a soft bristle brush and "Matte Pink," blend light and dark shadows together. 

 Apply Superwear Gel Liner in "Onyx" close to the lash line on top and in the water line on the bottom.

 Using a flat brush, smudge "Concord" shadow along lower lash line.

 Apply a generous coating of mascara to upper and lower lashes.

 For luscious lashes, drop in individual lashes using a small dot of lash glue.



Clean up any shadow "fall out" using Makeup Wipes.


 Using a foundation brush, apply matching foundation to even skin tone.

 Contour Powder Duo  can help to emphasize cheek bones. Using the darker shade, and a contour brush, sweep in hollows of the cheeks.

 Brush peach tone blush from apple of the cheeks to hairline.

 Highlight cheeks with the light shade from Contour Powder Duo.

 For a precise application, use a lip brush to apply Superwear Lip Color.
