Defined Crease, Winged Shadow

This look is great if you're going out to a more casual setting like getting together with friends, going to a bar, dinner, or small party. The crease is quite defined and the bottom liner is quite heavy in this look. To balance the heavy bottom liner, the shadow has been brought up high, reaching toward the brow bone, on top.

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in area's of concern (under the eyes, around the nose, on any blemishes), and set with a translucent powder to ensure a shine free, long lasting makeup.
2 Apply a bronzer through the back of the cheeks, temples, and around the hairline. Add a pinky blush liberally to the apples of the cheeks and slightly up the cheek bone.
3 Press a neutral shimmery pink champaign colour all over the lid from lashline to brow bone.
4 Run your brown eyeshadow high in the crease and blend up and out toward the brow bone. Switch back and forth between blending your edges and adding more colour as needed. Drag this colour along the lower lash line as well, slightly extending it on the inner corner and at the outer corner to meet up with your crease colour.
5 Line your upper and lower water line (inside the eye) with a pencil liner and line the outer edge of the top lashes with an angled brush and a black shadow.
6 Apply your highlight colour lightly on the brow bone to help further blend the edge of your brown shadow.
7 Add mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
8 Finish with a juicy pink gloss.

I've used neutral colours, but you can use the same design and techniques with different colours if you'd like.
