Add Your Bright 4 of 7
You have 3 Options for This Application Step
Apply the bright color. Put this color in the crease of the eye to add depth to your eye.
Or put the bright color on the outer corner of your eye in a horizontal V-shape.
Another technique is to dip the tip of the applicator or brush in the shadow and then use it to line the upper lid. Get as close to the lashes as possible.
Still another option is to apply the bright-colored eye shadow to the outer half of the lids.
Optional: Add 3rd Color 5 of 7

Add Eyeliner 6 of 7
Apply with a small angled brush and literally just working it into the lower lash line.
Add thick black eye liner on the upper lid and smudge it upward into the shadow above it, keeping in mind you want your darkest intensity right at the lash line.

Top it off with a nice heavy coat of black mascara to frame the look, and neutral lips and cheeks.
