Step 1: Materials
There are a variety of beauty products you can use for this look. This instructable doesn't require you to have the same products, there are a lot of other good products that resemble the ones used. However, if you are interested, they are listed below:
-Nivea Soft Creme
-Manhattan Eyeshadow Base
-Essence eyebrow gel
-NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette (The Runway Collection-03 Caviar and Bubbles)
-Maybelline Superstay 24h Concealer
-Maybelline Eyebrow pencil (+a small eyebrow brush)
-Maybelline Volume Million Lashes Mascara
-Eyeshadow Blending brush
Step 2: Starting
Before applying makeup, clean your face properly. Wash off any excess makeup and make sure your face is clean and dry. In order to make the overall appearance of your face better, apply a face creme (Nivea Soft).
Step 3: Realness of Concealness!
In order to have a good base for your eyemakeup and to make your eye more vibrant, apply concealer to cover up any dark circles. If you want to, you can also cover any other blemishes that you might have. This perfects the overall look, as the skin looks healthier.

Dab a few drops of the product onto the skin under your eyes and use the concealer brush to blend the product into the skin. Make sure the color of your concealer is not too dark (usually, try to go one shade lighter)!
Step 4: Eyebrows
The eyebrows are very important to frame your face. Therefore, we want to make sure that your eyebrows rock this look! Use any eyebrow pencil (make sure the color is one shade darker than your haircolor) and gently draw strokes onto your eyebrow. This makes them look fuller and more defined. In order to keep the form of the eyebrows, use the eyebrow gel.

Step 5: This Is Basic!:)
Now we come to the actual eye makeup that you were looking for! Before we start, we are going to apply an eyeshadow base. This is important, because it prevents the eyeshadow from coming off or creasing.

Step 6: The Eyeshadow
First of all, you are going to take a light brown/beige color (NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette) and apply the color all over your upper lid using an eyeshadow blending brush. Make sure not to use too much and blend it outwards!
Once you have done that, take a darker brown and dab it right in the outer corner of your eye. With circling motions, apply the color along the crease using your eyeshadow blending brush.
Make sure to blend the color well and apply until you have an even transition between the colors.
Step 8: Blending
This is what the eyeshadow should look like once you've blended the product properly!
Step 9: Building the Color
Now you can take a darker color and dab it slightly towards the middle of your eyelid (more to the center). Again, use circling motions to distribute the eyeshadow properly. Make sure you just use a little bit!
Step 10: The Triangle Shape
Blend the darker color and take it towards the outer edge of your eye. Now extend your eye using the color and create a small triangle. This makes your eye seem bigger and more defined.
Step 11: Highlights
Now take a lighter color and dab it onto the center of your eyelid. Apply it with dabbing motions and make sure it is blended slightly. This lighter color highlights your eye and reflects the light, giving your eye more depth.
Step 12: Eyeliner
Now take the darker color which you have used previously and gently dab it onto your eyeline (just above the eyelashes). Try to create a smudged line on the eyeline, and wing it outwards slightly. This will make your eyelashes seem fuller and bigger.
Step 13: Contouring the Eye
Now taking the same color which you have just used, dab a small amount of color on the bottom lashline. Make sure not to use too much product because it will feel uncomfortable. Don't go towards the center of the lashline, but stay just at the corner of your eye.
Step 14: Highlighting the Browbone
We are getting to the end of this instructable. Take a highlighting color (white) and dab it right beneath the arch of you brow. This will make the eyebrow stand out and define the eyeshadow.
Step 15: Wide Awake
Take the same highlighting color that you have just used and dab a little bit onto the corners of your eye. Make sure to blend it properly, so it looks natural. This will make your eyes seem bigger and more awake.
Step 16: Mascarrrra
Now take your favorite mascara (Maybelline Volume Million Lashes) and apply it to the upper lashes. Make sure to use enough to cover the lashes and try to separate them properly (you can curl the lashes with the eyelash curler for a greater effect).
Step 17: The Look
