Eyes: First, apply a Cream Foundation on the top lids and set with a Loose Powder to create a smooth surface for the eye color treatment. Begin with a highlight on the brow bone. A mixture of Bone and Honeysuckle is the perfect demi-matte for highlight. Blend the combo from the base of the eye brow to the crease of the eye with Brush 330. With a windshield wiper motion from the crease of the eye, build a soft shadow into the highlight with the 800 Brush and the Chamois Eye Color. For warmth and to reinforce the crease use the 800 Brush and the Sienna Eye Color. Start from the outer corner of the crease and as you follow the crease to the inner corner, lighten up on the pressure. This will allow you to sheer out and taper the Sienna Eye Color. Make sure to lightly blend upward into the Chamois. At this point, you should have a gradient of color from the crease of the eye into the highlight. Use Brush 330 with the Espresso Eye Color and stipple on the entire lid. Connect the outer corner and create a deep drop shadow for the smoky with Brush 800 and the Espresso. For more drama, deepen the outer corner with the Onyx Eye Color. Blend from the outer corner on the top and lower lid. Be careful not to drop the outer corner of the eye. Line the top and lower water line with the Black Eye Pencil and top this smoky look with a generous coat of Volumizing Mascara.
