Start by dipping into the color High with the pointed end of your brush to apply to the inner corner of the eye.

This'll highlight what's usually the darkest part of your eyelid, essentially making you look more awake.

Then, using the larger end of the brush, apply the shade Dirtysweet at the edge of High and blend toward the center of your lid.

You can also choose to use a flat brush for this, but that's entirely up to you.

Using the same brush (cleaned), use the shade Radar in the center of your lid and blend toward the outer part of your lid.

With a fluffy shadow brush, apply the shade Whiskey to the outer corner, blending it with Radar.

On the bottom lash line, use the eye pencil shade Whiskey (or a light brown shade).

With an angled brush, use a black or gel cream eyeliner to line the lashes and create a cat eye flick at the outer corner.

With the same brush, use the shades Black Market and Dagger on the outer corner of your lid.
