#Step 4

Create a soft crease line using a taupe matte eyeshadow. I have used the Zoeva petit crease brush. I apply it to the crease and gently blend towards the highlighted brow, to avoid any harsh lines. Blending is everything in makeup!!

Apply the desired eyeshadow on the lid using eye shader brush. I have used the Grafotobian  Makeup medium eye shader brush. Blend the line with separates eyeshadow on the crease and lid.
