Step 1: Primer comes first, always

An eyeshadow primer or base is a must to ready the canvas for makeup, this also eases the blending process. Apart from that, the colours will pop effectively. Need we say more?

Step 2: Dab on that colour

Opt for a healthy combination of deep and bright oranges, pop pinks, and if you must add some shimmer, then a gold or rust is the way to go. Use the darker eyeshadows closer to the eyelashes and on the crease, and the lighter ones in the middle. The best effect comes when you use both hot and soft shades generously on your entire eyelid.

Step 3: Blend all the way

To ensure that the dual or triple colour combination works for your look, make it a point to blend all of it well. Use a fluffy brush and blend in short circular strokes. Any excess colour at this stage can be removed by dabbing a clean tissue on the eyelid. For a slight sheen, you can even dust on some gold or rust eyeshadow on the outer corners of your eyes.

Step 4: Hello highlighters

To add a finishing touch, apply some highlighter on your browbone and on the inner corners of your eyes. This will make your eyes pop and add more definition to the area. You’ve got to try it to believe it, ladies.

Step 5: Eyeliner essentials

Swipe on a dark, preferably gel eyeliner onto your eyes to make the look an absolutely magical one. Whether you like it winged or not, is up to you. Make it as dramatic or simple as you like.

Step 6: Bring on the kajal

This goes without saying – kajal always gives the eyes a more defined look and makes them appear bigger and more striking. While this isn’t a necessary step, it sure will add a more formal vibe to your entire look.

Step 7: Pump up the lashes

The last product that needs to be applied for this look is mascara. Start with curling your lashes with an eyelash curler, and then apply a generous amount of mascara. You could even build it up by putting more than one coat of it. Pro tip: Dust some translucent powder in between coats for dramatic effect.
