c)    Eye-liner
d)    Mascara
e)    Kajal or Kohl-pencil
f)     Eye-shadow
g)    Some brushes
h)    Lashes-Curler or false eye lashes

Step 1:
Start by cleaning and moisturizing your face and neck completely. Blend a foundation suiting your skin type and apply it over your face and neck in a uniform pattern.

Step 2:
Apply a concealer on your eyes, over the dark spots (if any) and dark-circles to match the skin tone. Once you get the flawless tone, proceed to step 3.

Step 3:
Choose an eye shadow that matches your dress color, if not, a golden with smoky black combination suits any of the dress colors. Use a good branded brush of high quality to apply the eye shadow over the lid, just above the crease, start from the inside (nose-side) and move towards the outside.

Apply another coat again from the middle of the lid, give strokes towards the corner of your eyes and blend the shade well. This method will help you balance the tones equally all over.

Step 4:
Kajal for eyes: Apply kajal like you usually do. Don’t put a thick layer as we are focusing on the lid more than the lower part of the eyes.

Step 5:
Next step is to apply Eyeliner by keeping your hands very steady. Start with a thin line near the inner-corner and a thick one towards the outer corner of your eyes, as shown in the picture below. Depending on the kind of look you are creating, you can also choose your eyeliner pattern including winged, stretched, or mixed with false lashes, double winged etc,.

Step 6:

Mascara gives a thick look to your eye-lashes.  Apply it firmly without spoiling the liner and kajal.

Use a curler after the mascara dries up completely; it gives a shape to your lashes.

You could also try false eye lashes for a glam look. However, do not choose over decorative ones. Focus mainly on applying eye shadow and eyeliner. Also, the colours you choose should perfectly complement your dress in order to get the perfect look!
