Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer to your eyelid and blend it up to the crease of your eye. This will create a smooth surface for your lid and allow the eyeshadow to go on evenly.
Step 2: Use a flat eyeshadow brush and apply a dark taupe shade to your eye.
Step 3: Apply a matte black or dark brown shadow in the outer corner of your eye. Less is more, so just add a small amount of color to achieve the depth you want. You can always add more, but you can’t take it back once you’ve gone too far. Blend a soft matte peach or nude shade in the crease of your eye with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Pick up the shadow color with only one side of the brush to avoid applying too much eyeshadow all over your eyelid.
Step 4: Smudge black eyeliner just above your eyelashes on the top of your lid and line your bottom waterline. Smudge the liner into your lash line with a fine-pointed smudging brush.
Step 5: Finish the look with your favorite mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
