Flatten the eyebrows by rubbing a glue stick over the outside edge of the eyebrows in the direction of hair growth (Image 1). Once the glue is dry, dab on translucent powder and brush away any excess (Image 2). Use a makeup sponge and a very light foundation with hints of pink to cover the entire face. Blend it over the glued-down portion of the eyebrows as well as down the neck. Then, lightly go over your eyelids (Image 3).
Use a medium makeup brush to apply purple metallic cream makeup over the eyes and over the outer edges of the brow (Image 1). With a smaller makeup brush, add cream gold metallic makeup to the outside and inside edge of the eyelid (Image 2). Set the cream makeup with translucent powder.
Add contours to the face using a medium makeup brush to apply blue metallic eye shadow under the cheekbones (Image 1). Then, add the blue eye shadow along the side of the nose, under the jaw line (Image 2) and along the hairline (Image 3). Finish it off with a swipe of blue eye shadow just under the eyebrow (Image 4).
