Apply the darkest eye shadow over the entire eyelid, all the way up to the brows. Emphasize your pencil line to make it "shimmer".
Now apply the lightest eye shadow to the area defined from the eyebrow down to the middle of the eyelid.
Highlight the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone with a touch of gold shadow.
Coat the upper lashes with a black mascara such as Diorshow New Look.
To finish, use a brush to apply mascara to the roots of the lower lashes, without taking it through to the ends. This intensifies the eye without weight.
For drawing a kohl-like line as we have done here, or for structuring a smoky eye, a black eyeliner pencil is a must-have.
