2. Fill in the brows. Choose an eyebrow pencil that’s the same color, or, if you are blonde or a redhead and have very pale eyebrows, one shade darker than your natural eyebrow color. Using light strokes, gently color over your eyebrows to add emphasis. If needed, apply lighter shadow over the brows. Clear mascara or eyebrows sealer will finish eyebrow makeup.

3. Choose your shades. For this look you need light eyeshadow, medium eyeshadow and dark eyeshadow. It doesn’t matter the colors as son as they go well together. For cool skin colors try ivory, dove gray and charcoal. For warm skin color – taupe, beige and chocolate brown. Dust the light color over the whole lid and socket.
