I know it seems complicated to get all those shades perfectly aligned and blended but it can be done. So do not get discouraged if you can not get it how you expected it to look on the 1st or 2nd go round, or hell in my case a million times.

Choose your favorite shade of light brown eyeshadow to start off with in between your creases. Begin by applying a light brown, matte eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid. Use a tapered brush to apply the eyeshadow all along the crease. Create a light layer of eyeshadow. Be careful cause this part of your eye shouldn’t be too dark so they shades can slightly blend together once done.
Have you a darker shade ready to go for your eyelid. Choose a slightly darker shade for the eyelid. You could use a slightly darker brown, copper, or eggplant color. Apply the shade to your eyelid and bring to the eyeshadow all the way to your outer lid. Do not bring the eyeshadow up to your brow bone just yet we will get there soon enough!

Use a chocolate brown eyeshadow for your upper eye. Use a shimming chocolate brown shade for the upper eye. You should start to apply this color along the edge of the brow bone. Going a little too heavy on the color can cause that shade to be too dark for blending with the other shades so try not to be too harsh on lines it should appear to look blended nicely with the other colors you’ve used so far.
Apply dark eyeshadow on your lash lines. Use a dark brown color and apply it to your lower lash line. Then, use the shimmering chocolate brown eyeshadow for your upper lash line. Use a tight-lipped eyeshadow application brush to apply the eyeshadow to your lash line. You won’t need much eyeshadow so just apply a small amount first and then if you need more add more( and have to start all over again with a clean eye. One tip to remember is that- it is always easier to add more than to go in with too much and have to wash it all off and start over.

Apply a brown eyeliner. Use a pencil eyeliner and apply it as close to your upper and lower lash lines as possible. And don’t worry if it happens to smudge or isn’t a perfectly straight light cause this helps you to create that smokey look you are trying to achieve.
For the final step just blend all three colors slightly together. Use a brush or your finger to gently blend lines and smudge the colors. Smudge the eyeliner and eyeshadow at the outer corner of your eye as well. Make sure that you don’t leave any harsh lines in between the colors you’ve applied they should be blended into each other.
Choose a light purple eyeshadow to apply to your lids and lashes. Use a light purple shadow. Start off by applying the light purple shade over your entire eyelid and over your lower lashes. This will create a nice base for the other colors of shadow.
Use dark purple for the outer corner of your eye. A deep plum-colored eyeshadow is a good pick to use. Use a brush to apply this color to your outer eyelids. Now blend this darker shade with the light purple eyeshadow.
Choose a light orange color for the inner corner of your eye. To make your eyes appear to be wider than they truly are it helps to use a light and creamy orange eyeshadow. Apply a small amount of it to the inner corner of your eyes. This will make your eyes appear wider
Use a deep shade for your lash line. Take A deep shade of copper and apply it to your upper lash line. Brush the eyeshadow upward slightly toward the crease of your eyelid.
Apply a slightly lighter color above the crease of your eyelid. Use a slightly lighter shade copper. Apply it slightly above the crease, but don’t bring it all the way up your brow bone.
Choose a light shade for your brow bone. You can use a very light shade of the copper, or you can use a cream or white eyeshadow. Apply it your brow bone and all of your upper eyelid. Apply this color to your inner eye and to your waterline.
I personally love this look and since I am too shy to create my very own YouTube Makeup Tutorials than I would love to share one of my favorite YouTubers, her name is Ms.Carli Bybel.
She is amazing at what she does and I have learned so much from watching her YouTube videos if you are thinking of trying out something new YouTube is the place to learn just about anything you can imagine.

Use green eyeshadow on your crease and lid. Apply medium green eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid. Any medium shaded green loose powder eyeshadow will work nicely. Use a soft, fluffy brush to blend the eyeshadow into the lid to help soften it up.
Apply the same eyeshadow to your lower lash line. Take an eyeliner brush and quickly dip it in water. Then, dip it in the exact same green eyeshadow that you used for your crease and go ahead and apply this color to your lower lash line also.
Line your upper lash line with light brown eyeshadow. Wash off the eyeliner pencil (or a small, thin makeup brush). Make sure it’s a little wet, dip it in a soft and light brown eyeshadow and just apply this shade as close to your upper lash line as you possibly can get.
Use peach eye highlighter for the corner of your eyes. Use a light peach-colored highlighter and apply it to the inner corners of your eyes. Now last but not least slightly blend together any harsh lines.
