prime eyelid then add white cream shadow to your. I usually only do 3/4 across. The reason I use cream shadow is that it's a really good sticky base to make the white pop more than it would alone.

Crimp eyelashes. My basic rule of thumb is to hold for ten seconds then do ten quick squeezes. Add three coats of dark black mascara. I also coat my bottom lashes for a doll eyed look.
