Using "Stellar" shadow apply to the lid keeping in the lines we've created. 4. Apply a dramatic winged liner using "LBD" gel liner. 5. Using "Ivory" (Beauty weapon palette) apply to the inner corner if the eyes! Then taking "Obsession" line the lower lash line bringing it downward as you move into the inner corner if the eyes.
