Once you’re done with the selection, Start by applying one of the shades (preferably the light one) with a flat brush to the inside of your eyelid starting from your tear duct all the way to the centre of your lid.

Always back for seconds
Next, grab hold of your second shade and apply from the centre till the corner of your eye.
Remember to use a round blending brush to blend out the second shade a little above the crease of the eye.

Blend some more
Use your blending brush to blend both the colours together in the centre so that they merge and your eye makeup looks balanced and doesn’t have harsh lines between the two colours.

High-lights, camera, action
Apply your face highlighter right near your tear duct to give a dimension and glow to your eye look. You can also highlight your brow bone because why not?
