What you will need:

Primer for your eye to make sure the eye shadow stays on.

Dark eye shadow for a night time look or smokey eye

Lighter eye shadow for a day look

2 or 3 different brushes: 1 for primer (a larger brush) and 1 or 2 eye shadow applicators

Some kind of mirror either on the wall or a smaller mirror

The eye shadow shown is Almay brand and the primer is Mary Kay

Step 1: Fresh Face

Start off with a fresh face, unless you already applied face make up, then start with fresh eyes.

Step 2: Apply Primer

Apply the primer to both eyes with a brush to make sure the eye shadow sticks and stays on your eye for as long as possible.

Step 3: Then Apply Eye Shadow (night Look or Smokey Eye)

(This eye is the night time or smokey eye look)

Get some of the eye shadow onto the applicator (not too much or it will clump and get everywhere)

Then take the applicator and start from the inside of the eyelid (closest to the nose) and then spread it to the outside of the eyelid closest to the cheek bone.

You can use your thumb to spread it out a bit.

Make sure that they eye shadow doesn't go up to far on your eye lid, it should be just covering your whole eye socket, but not up to your eye brow.

Then make sure the eye lid is to your likeness (can make darker by applying a bit more eye shadow)

The last picture is what the end result of this eye shadow look should look like.

Step 4: Apply Eye Shadow (Day Look)

These are the same instructions for the darker eyeshadow:

Get some of the eye shadow onto the applicator (not too much or it will clump and get everywhere)

Then take the applicator and start from the inside of the eyelid (closest to the nose) and then spread it to the outside of the eyelid closest to the cheek bone.

You can use your thumb to spread it out a bit.

Make sure that they eye shadow doesn't go up to far on your eye lid, it should be just covering your whole eye socket, but not up to your eye brow.

Then make sure the eye lid is to your likeness (can make darker or lighter by applying a bit more eye shadow either dark or light)

The last picture is what the end result of this eye shadow look should look like for both eyes.
