Steps to make up

  1. Shape the eye brows in a shape appropriate to the shape of the face for e.g. flat eye brows for a long face, arched eye brows for a round face.
  2. Apply eye base over the eye lids and under the eyes.To conceal the dark circles use a concealer of a shade lighter than your skin tone. Yellow shades work best.
  3. Apply eye liner on the inner rims of the lower and upper lids as close to the lashes as possible. Use pencil or liquid eyeliner. The liner should be thin at the inner part of the eye. It should increase in thickness at middle of the eye and be thickest at the end. Drawing cat’s eyes is very effective in making big eyes look even bigger.
  4. Use the darkest shade of eye shadow at the inner and outer corners of the eye, from the lash line till the crease.
  5. Use a light shade of eye shadow and cover the bare areas in the middle of the eye lid. Draw in the color away towards the brow bone. If you have pale skin, opt for pastel colors, as richer and darker colors best suit darker skin tones. 
  6. Blend the colors well so the colors appear to flow into each other. There should be no abrupt change of color.
  7. Apply the highlighter just below the brow bone.
  8. Use mascara on the upper eye lashes.
Draw a thin line of the dark eye shadow just below the lower eye lashes; smudge well using a cotton swab.
