Step 3: Eyes

Bring a touch of natural beauty to your eyes with our all natural mineral eyeshadow shades that add subtle highlights for daytime or increased drama for night.

Run your brush over the light, neutral shade and tap off any excess shadow.Tip: You can use your index finger to apply color if you don't have a brush. Apply light shadow to lid. Run brush over darker color, tapping to remove excess. Apply dark shadow to crease. Curl lashes to give eyes a fresh, awake look.
