Note: This should be followed with a primer base if you have oily eyelids.

Step 2: Using a fluffy brush, apply a soft hue of brown eye-shadow into the crease. This will give you a natural look. Bronzer can also be used as a substitute to the eye-shadow.

Step 5: Take a soft brush and gently blend out all the three colors until smooth and flawless with no harsh lines.

Step 6: With an angled brush and eyeliner or cream eye-shadow, draw out a downward angle towards the outer corner of the eyes. Apply the liner along the upper lash line in the inwards direction stopping at the center of eyelid.
Note: Because this style does not reach all the way across your lids, neon shades would not work out good. However, you can try playing around with few shades to figure out the best that suits to you eye colour.
Tip: Q-tips with a little moisturizer should be kept handy for gentle touch-ups when there occurs a fault (there will occur one!).
