2. Apply eye shadow.Apply a neutral colored eye shadow on the entire eye lid using your shadow brush. Then take a light to medium contrasting color and apply to your crease with your brush. Blend evenly.

3. Apply eyeliner to the upper eyelid. You can use either a pencil, liquid eyeliner or both for a more intense look. Take your time. Start lining at the inner corner of the eye, carefully moving toward the outer edge. Extend the liner about a quarter inch past the outer edge of the eye, and flick upward toward the temple to create a winged look.

4. Apply mascara. Use black mascara, and apply two to three coats then use whats left over and swipe over your bottom lashes. Wipe mascara wand and use as a brush to remove any clumps.

5. Apply foundation. Use your foundation brush and apply foundation in upward strokes on the face until completely covered. Blend evenly.

6. Apply blush. Dip your blush brush into the blush, swirl, tap, and shake the excess off. Use what is left over on your brush to apply to the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion.

7. Apply setting powder. Dip your face brush into the setting powder, swirl, tap, and shake the excess off. Use what is left on the brush and apply to the T-zone of your face.
