Step 3: Using a small eye shadow brush, apply a light shade just below the brow bone. This acts as a highlighter. Next, sweep the darker shade of gray shadow across your crease, blending the dark shade with the light one and extending it out beyond the corners of your eyes, creating a half moon shape. Now fill in the very center of the eyelid with the same color or select a lighter shade for a highlight. This can be a metallic hue in gray or a slightly lighter version of your darker color. Re-apply the darker shade if you feel your eyes need more punch. Then apply two coats of mascara.
