Begin by covering entire face in a white, blue or gray cream foundation. Apply color with a sponge, and blot all over until you have the level of coverage you want (Image 1). Extend it down to the neck as well. Set with white or light-colored loose powder using a powder puff (Image 2). Add a touch of pink blush to cheeks using a soft brush (Image 3).
Add Eye Circles
Line waterline, the inside of the lower lid, with white eyeliner. Put it on very thick and extend to the lower lash line (Image 1). Using a brush, dip into a pot of cream-based makeup color in a sky-blue shade. Create large circles surrounding the eyes starting at the eyebrows and continuing all the way around. Fill in the top half of the circle, covering eyelids, and begin to fill in the bottom as well — avoiding the area where you put the white eyeliner (Image 2). Once circles have been painted in, set with a quick dusting of powder (Image 3). Cover circles with blue eye shadow in a similar color. Use a slightly darker blue eye shadow for the top part of the circle and eyelid and a slightly lighter blue eyeshadow for the lower half of the circle to create a very subtle fade (Image 4). These circles will help give eyes the illusion of being extremely large.
Apply Eye Color
Line the top lash line with black liquid eyeliner (Image 1), and paint a thin line underneath the white liner on the lower lash line. Use a darker gray-blue shadow to shade a tiny bit under the black line underneath eyes (Image 2). Curl your eyelashes, and coat top lashes only with black mascara (Images 3 and 4).
