Step 4 - The Final Touch
Next apply a lighter shadow in a neutral tone with a larger eye shadow brush, I like to use the wet/dry brush.
Encircling the entire eye area, be sure to soften and graduate outward for that perfect blended look.

Step 5 - Cleaning up The "Territory"
Brush away any shadow that has fallen below the eye with a fluffy brush and clean up any areas that have smeared with a q-tip.
Step 6 - Going Super-Dramatic
Want a more dramatic look add more Shadow and Mascara! If you are looking for the most dramatic effect be sure to curl those lashes and apply 2-3 coats of black mascara!
Step 7 - Finishing up The Lips
If you want to go for a classic smoky eye look, lightly line lips with a natural color and add some sheer color in peach, caramel, or barely there pink.
If you want to add more drama to your look, line your lips with a darker lipliner and fill it in with a deep color to get that look from YSL, Dior and Armani beauty ads.
Both, the nude lip and the deep dark pout are very "it" this season. So, it's up to you to decide which look is better for you.
And the last, but not least, don't forget to put some natural looking blush on your cheeks. It will ad some color to your complexion.
Voila! You've got the look!
