3. Blend the crease color into your crease with a blending brush.
4. Apply a shimmery or matte eye shadow below your crease color with the medium flat eye shadow brush using smaller strokes for even coverage.
5. Using the same brush, apply either the same tone or a different one on your lashline, sweeping from side to side.
