I started out by placing the scotch tape following my lower lash line, I then primed my eyelid. I carved out my crease with the matte brown shadow from my elf palette and blended upwards as my transition colour. I then pat the matte grey shade from the same palette all over my lid, then mixing black shades from both the elf and Chi Chi palette I started smoking out the colours until it was as dark as I wanted it. I went back with the brown from my elf palette and blended out the black and grey.

I finished off my eye look with the lightest champagne colour from the Chi Chi palette under my brow and to blend out the brown and black so the eye shadow is seamless, Lined my waterline with the black eyeliner pencil and blended the black eye shadow from the Chi Chi Palette on my waterline. I then added a cat eyeliner &  Ardell 120 lashes.

To complete the whole look I opted for a more full coverage foundation and buffed that into my skin I then used the concealer under my eyes and filled in my eyebrows. After I let the cream products sink into my skin I powdered my face and added a deep contour, blush and my lipstick combo.

I finished with Elfs makeup setting spray.
