I was lucky enough to do Blogger Ash Owens makeup in the weekend and she let me take pics of the steps involved. I hope you have fun playing with these different colours, perfect for Autumn!

Step 1 - Using the Synthetic concealer or eyeshadow brush coat the mobile lid with a thin layer of Groundwork, make sure the edges blend out.
Step 2 - Using the Bobbi Brown Touch Up brush pack on Mars to the mobile lid but don't take it beyond your crease. When you open your eye you shouldn't see this above your crease.
Step 3 - Using the Zoeva Luxe Shader Brush pack on Fudge over top of Mars, this is purely to create a specific colour, if you already have a maroon/ burgundy coloured eye shadow you could just use that instead of layering eye shadows.
Step 4 - Take Frappe on a Zoeva Luxe Petit Crease Brush and blend out the edges of Mars and Fudge.
Step 5 - Then on a Zoeva Luxe Crease brush take Beaches & Cream to blend out the edge of Frappe, take this colour right up under the brow. Add another, layer of MARS to even out the colour on the lid.
Step 6 - Line the water line with the NARS Eye Paint, I like to use a small flat brush like the Zoeva Detail Shader Brush to do this.
Step 7 - Using the edge of the Zoeva Luxe Smokey Shader (the one you applied Fudge with) press Fudge along the lower lash line making sure to get right in amongst the lashes. Follow this by doing the same thing but with Mars. Blend out underneath with the Zoeva Luxe Petit Crease Brush using Frappe.
Step 8 - Finish with Mascara, Ash had insanely massive natural eyelashes so I didn't need to use falsies on her but if it was on anyone else I would use some to finish off this look. I also ended up adding some bronze eye shadow from the Natasha Denona Palette in the middle of the top eyelid which is more visible on the picture at the top of the page, just to give it an extra pop of colour.
