  • It doesnt really matter. I tend to go in the flow with the rainbow if that makes sense. If its different shades go dark to light....

  • The medium shade covers the majority of the eyelid, from the lashes to just under the brow. The lightest shade should be a highlighter and it goes at the top of the eyelid, just under the brow bone. The darkest shade, I put in the outside corners of my eyelids and blend towards my nose- gives my eyes more of an almond shape. Take a brush and slightly blend all the colors.

    Check out youtube for some great make up tutorials.
