1. To start I applied Urban Decay Primer Potion from lid to brow. This helps prolong the wear of my eye makeup as well as intensify the colour.
Underneath the brows I used MAC eyeshadow in 'Mylar' for a highlight.
2. To add a pop of colour to this smokey look, instead of using a traditional brown, I applied MAC eyeshadow in 'Electric Eel' to the crease with a small fluffy brush. This was then blended well into 'Mylar'.
There is no need to use this colour on the lids as black will be applied here.
4. To add even more colour I applied Urban Decay's eyeshadow in 'Omen' to the lower lash line using a small eyeshadow brush. This particular shadow also has a slight blue tint to it which compliments 'Electric Eel' nicely..
6. Inglot's black eyeshadow was then used very close to the lower lash line on top of 'Omen' and these colours were then blended together.
I also joined the black at the tear duct area and at the very edge of the eye to neaten up the look and connect all the colours together.
To finish one coat of Maybeline 'Great Lash' mascara was applied to the upper and lower lashes.
I also like to use cottenbuds to tidy up any fallout.
For highlighting under the brows.
