Before getting started, prep face with Kevyn Aucoin Skin Perfecting Primer, Sensual Skin Enhancer, and Liquid Airbrush Foundation. Priming a face before applying makeup will make colors vibrant and last longer.

Using the Kevyn Aucoin Single Powder in “Bronze,” brush on a base on both eyelids.

With steady hands, brush a thin line along the outer edge of each eyelid with Urban Decay Liquid Eyeliner in “El Dorado.” Repeat under the eye, this time from the tear duct to the corner, shaping the eyeshadow and creating a “cat eye” effect.

Bring the volume to your lashes by applying Kevyn Aucoin Volume Mascara in “Pitch Black.”

TIP: For a fuller look, use individual lashes to add in an extra flirtatious touch and volume across the eye but still give the appearance of a natural, fluttery look. Secure false lashes by lightly pressing down on the top and bottom lashes.

Apply and contour Nars “Laguna” Bronzer and “Super Orgasm” Blush to cheeks to illuminate the eye area and bring out the shades of silver and gold.
