Step 1:

Moisturize and prime your eyes.
Step 2:

Groom your eye brows well. If you already have thick eyebrows, then you can use clear mascara to hold them in place

Apply a pale gold highlighter below the brow bone. You may use beige highlighter too. My warm yellowy skin tone demands that I use a little touch of gold everytime for that bright look.
Step4: Apply the gunpowder grey all over your eyelid.

Step 5:

Extend the grey to outer 1/3rd of the lower lashline as well.
Step 6:

Now, use the blue-ish lavender to draw a thick line on the crease.
Step 7:

Use some pinkish purple eyeshadow and blend the harsh lines of the crease. Earlier, I used to use matte brown eye shadow for this step, until Sweta taught us that blending with an eyeshadow of the same color family helps in maintaining the color intensity,thanks Sweta.
Step 8:

Keep on blending until you can’t differentiate between the lines.

Step 9:

Take some silver eye shadow on a flat brush and just dab on the inner half of the upper eyelid. This will add a glow to the lids. Learnt the usefulness of silver eye shadows from Neha.
Step 10:

Apply some silver eyeshdow in the innermost corners of the eyes as well.
Step 11:

Take gel eyeliner or liquid eyeliner in black and draw a “<” like shown in the picture. Do not extend the line all throughout the upper lashline.just take it till the middle,keeping very close to the lashline.
Step 12:

Fill in the “<” with the same eyeliner

Finally, finish off with kajal on the waterline and a single coat of mascara on the lashes 
This is how it should look.

Learnt from Rashmita’s tutes that a bit of “hair show” in EOTDs can enhance its look. So, all those who thought that I am an expert in eye makeup, here is how that expertise came about. Fellow IMBBians are the best teachers! We all learn from each other, don’t we?? Take care ladies, will be back soon.

  1. Hi Aprajita,
    I’m floored with your skills grl!! Every time I see your tutes, i nobody can beat that..but you prove me wrong with ur next tute. Your tutes are simply awesome. They make me believe that one can create great looks with simple and cheap make up products too. So, now I know, I don’t need those MAC eye shadows to get the perfect make up. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the next one 🙂
