Applying a transition shade

1. Apply transition shade to the eyelid

So, I’ve already put down a base for my eyes and done my eyebrows, so I’m going to go in with eyeshadow. I’m going in with my transition color first with a big blending brush and it’s an orange color.

2. Apply purple eyeshadow to the inner crease

I’m going to gently place a purple, periwinkle color on my inner crease, just on the top.

Next, I’m taking a purple, plum color and gently placing that down on the outer crease to connect it to the color that I put down on the inner crease.
