You're crazy if you're not ready to try out these gorgeous colors on your lids immediately. Follow along with this tutorial from Sabina Hanan for picture-perfect eyes to take from day to night!

Step 1: Apply either a white eyeshadow or concealer across your entire lid. Use a light powder to set it and prep your peepers for the look. 

Step 2: Swipe a bright yellow eyeshadow into your crease, and use a fluffy blending brush to blend it slightly above the crease line. 

Step 3: Take a bold orange through your crease overtop of the yellow and blend downward across your entire lid. 

Step 4: Take a deep fuschia eyshadow across your entire eyelid, blending it into the other colors. 

(If you haven't noticed, the secret here is all about the blending!)

Step 5: To add some dimension, it's time to bring in a darker colors! Using a purple eyeshadow on a pointed blending brush, fill in a "V" shape on the outer corner of your lid. Blend away! 

Step 6: Using a black eyeliner, line the top of your lash line, and apply some fake eyelashes to add some drama. 

Step 7: Apply your foundation, concealer, and contouring makeup as usual.


Step 8: Take a wine/burgundy-colored pencil eyeliner into your bottom waterline. Swipe the same colors you used on the top of your lids over your bottom lash line to bring the whole look together!
