See below for @rebeccacapelmakeup’s beginner tutorial on how to apply eyeshadow.

STEP ONE

Apply a By BEAUTY BAY’s Eye Base all over the lid.

STEP TWO

Apply your eyeshadow all over the eyelid to just above the crease. Rebecca is using By BEAUTY BAY Nude 42 Colour Palette shade Maple Syrup.

STEP THREE

Blend the edges with a shade slightly lighter than the last. Try shade Toast from the By BEAUTY BAY Nude 42 Colour Palette.

STEP FOUR

Apply a brown liner in the waterline to compliment the eyeshadow. Try By BEAUTY BAY’s Crayon Eyeliner in shade Coffee.

STEP FIVE

Apply those same eyeshadows as above on the lower lash line. Don’t forget to connect it on the outer corner!

STEP SIX

Apply lots of mascara. Rebecca is using Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Lash Brag Volumizing Mascara.

STEP SEVEN
