Instructions
1. Apply the Soft Ochre with a rounded blending brush across your entire eye area from the eyelids up to the brow bone to create a light, shimmery base.
2. Apply Burnt Umber from the Modern Renaissance palette to your eyelid using a tapered fluffy brush.
3. Apply Sienna to the crease of your eyelid with a fluffy blending brush.
4. Sweep Mulberry across your eyelids and into the crease of your eyelid using a fluffy blending brush. Blend well.
5. Curl your eyelashes.
6. Apply mascara to your top lashes.
7. Carefully apply lash glue to the false lashes. Using a pair of tweezers or a lash placement tool, apply the false lashes so they sit just above your natural lash line; hold them in place for a few seconds to make sure they stay put.
8. Apply brow pomade using an eyebrow brush for more defined eyebrows.
9. Apply Sienna to your lower lash line using a fluffy blending brush. Add some Mulberry to the area right below your eye with a small rounded blending brush.
