The ideal is to choose beige, taupe and brown tones because they highlight all the colors of eyes.

Step 1: apply a special eye primer to the entire mobile eyelid.
Step 2: with a fairly thick brush, put beige eyeshadow all over the mobile eyelid.
Step 3: to create intensity, draw a “C” from the crease of the eyelid to the outer corner of the eye with a darker brown. Then lightly blend the color along the mobile eyelid.
Step 4: with a fine bevelled brush, take some brown eyeshadow and drop some flush with the lashes of the lower eyelid to give a smoky smoky effect.
