The primer should be the lightest color because it will also act as the highlighting color the eyes.
  • Creasing. To add an eye shadow crease, you will need to take the darkest color in the eye shadow palette and use it to create a line that follows the natural crease of your eyes. The natural crease is the part of the eyelids that folds when you open your eyes. Draw a thin line over this.
  • Medium shade. Next, choose a medium shade and use it to cover the area below the crease to the eyelashes. The medium shade should be a bit darker than the primer color that you have used, but much lighter than the crease color.
  • Blending. After you have added in all of the colors for the eyelashes, the final step is to blend the colors together. You can easily do this by using your fingers to combine the colors. You can also use the eye shadow brush to combine the colors together.
