Do the same for the top, but only 1/3 of the way across. Drag the brush towards the center but try to keep it closest to your waterline

Color in the rest of the lid with a grey, blue or brown for smokey or neutral for natural. If you chose to go dark, use the Q tip method, or a cotton ball if it is too dark to pull some of it off

Give yourself cheekbones by pulling up and out
