~ Apply light-colored, matte eyeshadow matching your skin tone on your upper eyelid. This matte shadow is the basic eyeshadow. The darker color should be used on the crease and must be blended well.
~ To locate the crease, close your eyes and touch your eyelid to find the deep hollow indent on the top part of your eyelid. This hollow indent on the eyelid is the crease. The dark color would be used to define the crease.
~ Dark color should be applied on the crease when the eyes are open. Otherwise, the shading on your crease will not appear prominently.
~ Crease and contour eye makeup tricks make your eyes appear bigger and attractive.
~ Start lining your upper eyelid, very close to the lash-line near the roots using a black eyeliner pencil.
~ Smudge the outer one-third part of eyeliner pigment on the upper lash-line upwards and outwards
~ Next, use the black eye pencil to line/ shade the top crease from the outer corner of upper eyelid towards inner corner upwards, only till one-third, ending much away from your nose.
