Start with basic colours/shades all over the lid, white/nude or pale pink/peach colours can be used for an all over lid base.  You can also add a basic coat of mascara and top this up later.

I've added my first line of eyeliner as a starting colour using the Bold Purple liner. Follow the top of your lid above your eye lashes. You can flick out at the ends to create an Egyptian esque look.

As you can see I have added more colour and darker shades, beginning to create the traditional smokey eyes look. I used silver/grey to highlight the lower brow at the top of the lid.

I then applied a darker grey colour but dark beige/mid blue can also be used in the crease of the eye.   After this you would usually apply the dark blue/purple/black on the rest of the lower lid.

As the liner is the main feature in my look here I've used the darker shade all over the mid of my eye lid over the medium shade instead of just the inner corner. This is due to the line being thicker
