  • Use the mid shade as a colour wash across the lid, 
  • *Pop* the eyes with a touch of the lightest shade at the very inner corner of the eye (tap the excess of the champagne colour off the brush and brush very lightly under the brow to just reflect the light slightly).
  • Take the darkest shade and initially line the eyes with a *push* liner, now blend out (this will create extra definition and allow you to see just how much deeper you need to go on the lid.
  • Gently map out the *feline* shape elongating the eye by gently blending the colour outward and above the contour of the eye.
  • Blend the shades together with a circular movement to *polish* the pigment for a flawless effect.
