Start adding darker shades, in order to highlight and enhance the eyes further. Start with a medium blue and start with applying it on the outer edge of the eye (gradually bring the color inwards without picking up more color – you don’t want your eyes to look beady, if you do have smaller eyes. You must leave the inner corner silver to make it appear more bright and open). You can add dark blue for a more dramatic effect.
