If you have a facial highlighter, you can use that too. You will need a small flat eyeshadow brush for application, a small and medium-sized blending brush and a smudger optional. Glide your flat brush on the lightest shade and apply this on the inner corner of the eyes.
This is where most of the product should be and then you can easily blend outwards after.
Dip the tip of the brush in water enough to dampen it. Then glide it on the eyeshadow and apply again in the inner-most corner of the eyes tearduct area. Now on to the mid-tone shade.
Use a blending brush to apply the eyeshadow above the crease, blending from the outer corner inwards. Hold your brush at the edge of your nose going up to the edge of the eyes.
Anything below the line should be clear. Using the contour shade, apply from the outer corner while blending into the crease on the outer half of the eye. Your eyelid makeup is done so you can now proceed to the bottom part of the eye.
Mix the mid-tone color and the contour shade and apply on the bottom lash line starting from the outer corner until it meets the highlighter. To complete the look, apply the matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eyes and close to the bottom lash line.
