Step 1

Use an eye primer all over your lid. Opt for a flesh toned or a light-colored primer so as to neutralize the color of your lids. This step is essential to make sure your make up lasts longer, doesn’t smudge or crease and even out any discoloration. Here, I have used the NYX Professional Makeup Eye Shadow Base in the color ‘White’ for the price of Rs. 725 only.

Use a nice bright color like maroon or brick orange or purple and place it all over the crease of your eyelid. This will serve as the transition color and give an overall nice finish to the look.
