4. Dab the lighter tone concealer underneath each eye with the pads of your fingers.

6. Sweep some blush onto the apples of your cheeks.
7. Sheer the dark-colored eye shadow onto the creases of each eyelid.

9. Swipe the white eyeliner pencil onto your waterlines.
10. Draw a thin line with the white liquid eyeliner onto the contours of the lower lash lines. Afterward, go in once more with the black eyeliner beneath that line.

16. Widen the corners of your mouth by extending them with two lines that are approximately 3 centimeters long.
