With an eyeshadow brush, apply a light, muted beige all over the lid. In the middle third of the lid, lightly pat on a mustard yellow shade with a fluffy brush. On the outer third of the lid, blend a deep antique gold shade with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Using a tapered crease brush, lightly blend the antique gold color into the crease Define the crease with a small, tapered crease brush and tap a soft, reddish-brown shade to add depth. Highlight the brow bone with a soft neutral highlighter shade, and then line upper/lower lash line (as desired) with dark shade of chocolate brown. For complementing cheeks, try sunkissed cheeks by dusting a light touch of bronzer, flush of coral, dusting of gold, or bronzy-berry.
