Step #2 Use a brow pencil or powder in a shade closest to your own to fill in and exaggerate your arch. We love Trish McEvoy’s Precision Brow Shaper and Brow Gel.

Step #3 Cover your eyelid with a sheer shimmery eye shadow. This could be gold, silver or pink. We like Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Bone

Step #4 Use black liquid eyeliner, for the less experienced use an eyeliner pencil, much easier to use. CHANEL AUTOMATIC LIQUID EYELINER in Noir or CHANEL LE CRAYON YEUX PRECISION EYE DEFINER in Black.
