    Apply pink base

    Note: Blend it in a circular motion.

    Apply Black Eyeshadow into the crease

    Dip a slightly pointed or creased brush into a black eyeshadow and apply it about halfway into the crease of your upper eyelid. Now, blend some of this black eyeshadow onto the outer corner of your eye too.

    Note: If you have small eyes, you could use a pencil brush for applying the black eyeshadow on the outer crease of your eye.

    Apply some black eyeshadow underneath the eye too

    Use the same brush and apply the black eyeshadow on the outer third of your lower lash line.

    Apply an eyeshadow lighter than your skin tone

    Choose an eyeshadow lighter than your skin tone and gently apply it under your eyebrow line. Blend it well until you get the required look. It will highlight your pink eye makeup and soft the edges of the crease color as well.

    Note: Avoid white or glitter eye highlighters as pink eyeshadow itself is enough to enhance your eye makeup.

    Apply eyeliner to your top lash line

    Apply a thin and crease-free line of a black gel/cream liner to your top lash line and wing it out at the outer end. Wait for a few seconds until your eyeliner dries thoroughly.

    Note: You can also use an eye pencil for this purpose. You have the option to use pink eye pencil but it is always better to use black as it goes well with pink eyeshadow. In addition to that, water proof eye liners are easily available in the market in order to avoid spreading of the liner.

    Apply eyeliner along your waterline

    Apply the same black gel/cream liner along your waterline as well. Line the outer third of your lower lash line in order to soften it.

    Note: Make sure not to exceed outer third of your lower lash line as it can create a messy look and can spoil your whole effort.

    Apply few coats of mascara

    Now, it is the time to apply mascara to enhance and highlight your eyelashes, which are the main part of your eye makeup. Apply at least two to three coats of good quality mascara in order to bring your eyes out with a more prominent look. You can apply false eyelashes if your natural eyelashes are thin or short to convert them into long eyelashes.

    Note: You can use waterproof mascara as well.

    Top the applied light pink eyeshadow with any of your favorite dark pink shade.

    Take a clean eye brush and apply some brown eyeshade to the crease of your eye.  Blend it with the pink one with circular strokes.

    Dip an angled eye shadow brush in a black eyeshade, hold it in a horizontal angle, and apply it to the outer corner of your upper eye lid. Blend it as well.
