On the eyes, he used #35 from brown to lash for a base, then swept Diamond Powder #11 across the brow bone to highlight. He used Eyeshadow #13 to give depth to the crease and to line the top and bottom lashes. To line eyes, he used Aqua Eyes #0L with #2L to add richness. On cheeks, he used Eyeshadow #13 to contour and Powder Blush #69 on the apples of cheek and a touch of Matte Bronze #2 to add life. He finished the lips with Aqua Lip Pencil #3C and Fascinating Lip Gloss #9.
