- Take kohl and use it on the lower rim. Line the inner rim and then make a broad line along the lash line. If you have small eyes, then do not use kohl on to the water line. Use a flesh toned pencil instead. Use kohl after this just below the lash line.

- Next take a black eye shadow on a Q-tip applicator brush and use it on to the whole of the upper lid. In absence of black eye shadow, use kohl to fill the entire upper lid. Leave the crease area. Using black on to crease area will over do the makeup.
- Now take a clean Q-tip and spread the black eye shadow or the kohl from the exterior side of the upper eye lid. Smudge the color and enter the crease area.
- Use the same Q-tip to smudge the lower eye lid line. Do not smudge too much at the interior portion. Only smudge at the exterior sides.
- Your eye makeup is almost complete but to give this look a more fresh form, we will use the silver eye shadow. Take a clean angled brush. Coat it well with silver eye shadow. Use this on the lower rim at the inner corner and extend following the lower rim line only half way across the eye. It should be such that the silver slowly blends into the dark.
- Give a little silver to the brow bones just starting above the crease section.
- Curl your eye lashes. Use mascara.
- If using false lashes, use them right after mascara application with the glue that comes with the pack.
