Step 7: Oh hai eyeballs.
To start, I used a light color as the base. For Christina, I blended a beige and an ivory color. Shes got amazing skin color, so to use just the ivory would have been too light. Blend the light color all over the top lid up to the brow.
Use a brush that has a nice point to it. For this application, I used a Nars brush to apply the black eyeshadow. Pick up some color (but not too much!) and tap the excess shadow off the brush...this helps to keep the excess black powder off of her cheek.
Starting from the outer corner or the eye, shade the corners and work up into the crease of the eye. You want to stay on the outer corners and try to avoid bringing the pigment or shadow beyond center of the eye.
Use a full rounded tip brush and blend the color.
