Step 2: 

Using a blending brush take the orange color and apply right into the crease of your lid. 

Step 3:

Slightly above the orange crease, you want to blend in the yellow shadow. 

Step 4:

Apply this brown eye primer to the centre of your lid so the shadow can appear really dark. 


Step 5: 

Using the other smashbox palette apply the dark brown shadow directly above the primer. 

Then top it with the plum shadow to give it a dark plum color. Repeat both these steps below your lower lash line with a pencil brush. 

Next give yourself a winged liner using this beautiful blue liner from NYX. 



After applying my foundation I applied the concealer to the area below. 

Set with MAC mineralized powder and Contour and Highlight with Japonesque Palette. 

Finish up with these lip colors. (listed in product list above)

Here is the final product. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the blue.
