- Start by moisturizing then placing a small amount of foundation make up and powder on the eyelids to achieve a good even base. The powder will also stop the eye shadow from fading.
- Add a yellow right in the inner spot of the eyelid, and fade it out near the middle of the lid.
- Put the gold green on top of where the yellow has begun to fade.
- Add the sky blue on top of where the gold green has begun to fade.
- Apply the purple on top of where the sky blue has begun to fade and slightly further along the lid.
- Add the pink at the end and reduce to almost the outer corner of your lid.
- After you have applied the eye shadow, use your brush to blend each color together. Even blending makes for the perfect look.
- Use eyeliner and/or mascara to complete the look.

- Select suitable brush for the work at hand.
Use a natural bristle hair brush for the application of powdery makeup products, for example powder, blush and eyeshadow.
Use a synthetic bristle brush for wet makeup application, like creams, lipstick and foundation.
- Avoid makeup brushes with blunt edges. Brushes with soft, dome-shaped heads work the best for applying make-up.
Buy a concealer brush. This is an important tip of the trade since you are able to use it to ensure accurate application of the makeup product precisely where you want it.
- Test for durability just before you buy makeup brushes. Natural fiber brushes will quickly lose the bristles with use. You can do a test in order to prevent this by ensuring that when you buy the brush, it is strong well attached bristles. This means doing the tug test – pull softly on the brush in the store. If there are any lose hairs, consider buying a different brand.
- Make sure your makeup brushes are clean and free of dust. Store away from bathroom products and preferably in dust-proof locations containers or in a bathroom cabinet. Gently wipe off makeup build-up regularly from your brushes. You can use liquid for synthetic brushes or simply wipe with a tissue natural bristle brushes.
