- Step: Sweep a light pink or silver shadow on inner corners of each eye.
- Step: Sweep dark brown powder across eyelid, using a heavy pressure on outer corner of eye.
- Step: Apply same color to bottom portion of your eyes.

Black women can create a great look by simply accentuate their eyes using dark brown, copper, beiges, prunes and burgundies make up. Light, powdery colors and iridescent colors that cover the whole eyelid should be avoided. Using a light brushing of loose, translucent make up powder over the top eyelid will illuminate your eyes for evening glamour.
Blush shades reds, pinks or burgundy make up can be applied too. The same can be done for lips and nail colors. If you have a wide nose, slimming can be accomplished by shading both sides with a darker tone make up. If you have thick eyebrows, you can easily narrow them simply by brushing "just enough" shading along the upper and lower edges to trim them up neatly.
