Prepare Your Eyelids

Start by applying an eyeshadow primer– Ecostay Insta Smooth Mattifying Perfecting Primer to your eyelids, ensuring that your eyeshadow adheres well and stays in place. Then invest in a neutral eyeshadow–Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Moon Night that matches your skin tone to create a base on your lids.

Build the Gradient

Choose your desired eyeshadow makeup and apply the darkest color on the outer corner of your eyelid, following the shape of your eye. Then, blend it into the crease using an eyeshadow brush in windshield wiper motion. Apply a slightly lighter shade in the center of your lid, blending it into the darker color. This creates depth and dimension.

Highlight the Inner Corner

Use a light, shimmery eyeshadow or highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop. Depending on the smokey eye makeup look you're going for, apply eyeliner along your upper lash line. 

Smudge and Blend
