For an Everyday Eye-Awakening Look
If you’re going for a subtle smokey eye look using your favourite eyeshadow palette, try applying the darkest shade first. Yes, we said the darkest shade in your Masterpiece Nude Palette. While some believe that starting with the lightest shade is best, it can actually result in a heavier, flatter finish, as you later end up layering dark pigments on top of the light base colour.
By shading the crease at the outer corner of your eye first, you create a ‘frame’ for your lighter shades, preventing you from going over areas and piling on too much eyeshadow.
Once you’ve defined the crease and smoked shadow up to the brow bone, use a clean eyeshadow brush to tap a lighter shade in the palette from the inner corner of the eye to the centre of the lid. Buff upwards to the crease and brow bone to meet the darker shade and leave a seamless, flawless finish.
