Add Blush

Contour the hollows of cheeks using purple and brown shadows, then add a touch of mauve blush to soften.

Apply Eye Shadow

Prime lids for shadow with eye primer to help give the maximum color payoff from eye shadow (Image 1). Define directly under your brow bone with a white pencil liner then blend it smooth with your finger (Image 2). Go over the white liner with white shadow to define brows and act as a base for blending (Image 3). Apply dark purple eye shadow at the base of the eyelid, then gradually blend up with light purple eyeshadow extending all the way up to the brow bone (Image 4). Continue the dark purple shadow all the way around the eyes.

Create Dramatic Eyes

Enhance under-eye circles with gray, purple and mauve shadow (Image 1). Add a touch of pink under the eyes, extending out (Image 2). Line your waterline, which is the inside bottom of the eyelid, and around your eyes with black pencil liner (Image 3). Create a thick, dramatic cat eye using black liquid eyeliner on your top eyelid (Image 4).
