1. Prep the eyelid with a primer.  This will keep your shadow from creasing as well as give you a long-lasting result.

2. Curl the lashes and apply a coat of mascara.

3. Apply a creamy eyeshadow such as Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in “Cocoa” or “Smoke”.  Use your fingers and/or a fluffy brush to blend and smudge the color.  Sometimes I find that your finger tip will warm the stick, making it easier to smooth and “smoke” it out.  Don’t be afraid to get messy with it!  It won’t look perfect at first…just keep blending.

4. Line the eyes with a black eyeliner and smudge.  I love Clinique’s Quickliner Intense in “Intense Ebony”.

5. Lastly, pop on your favorite lashes.  Here I used Ardell lashes in 53’s.
