What you'll need ::

These are the eye brushes that I used to create this look. They are all Sigma brushes and you can find them here. From left to right :: E05, E55, E40, E30, E60, E25
Step 1: Apply eye shadow primer on your lid and blend up to your brow bone. This will keep your eye shadow from creasing and will intensify the colors of your shadow.
Step 2: Take your E40 (blending) brush and sweep the shade "Naked" (a light brown color) into your crease. You will hardly see this shade when it's all said and done, but it's put down first to help your darker shadows blend easier.
Step 3: With your E60 (flat shader) brush, pack on the shade "Sidecar" (a sparkly champagne color) all over your lid. Don't go into your crease with this shade. You want to use your sparkly colors on the lid and your matte colors in your crease.
Step 4: Take your E25 (flat blending) brush and apply the shade "Buck" (a dark brown color) into your outer-V. I will be applying a black color into my outer-V but putting this color down first helps the black blend easier.
Step 5: With your E30 (pencil) brush apply the shade "Creep" (a black color) into your outer-V.
Step 6: Use your E25 (flat blending) brush again, to blend out the black and browns in the outer-V. This may take a few minutes. Blending is key. Use a windshield wiper/circular motion until it's blended the way that you prefer.
Step 7: With your E55 (eye shadow) brush, apply the shade "Virgin" (a sparkly off-white color) to your brow bone and in your inner corner.
Step 8: Take a black eye kohl (here I'm using MAC- Smolder) and apply it above your upper lashes. To create more of a precise line, use an eyeliner (E05) brush to smooth it out and create a sharp point.
Step 9: Apply your mascara. Here I'm using Benefit Cosmetics- BADgal Lash.
Step 10: Take your eye kohl, and line your lower water line.
Step 11: With an E30 (pencil) brush, sweep the shades "Buck" (dark brown) and "Creep" (black) under your lower lashes.
Step 12: Add some mascara to your bottom lashes and you're finished!
