Step 1: Using the small end of the brush, gently press "Thirteen" into the inner corner of the eye.

Step 2: Using the larger end of the brush, sweep "Password" into the crease and blend.

Step 3: Use a slanted eyeliner brush to apply "Black Market" as a liner along the top and bottom lash line.

Step 4: Finish with applying "High" on the inner corner of the eye for a subtle highlight.

Alternatives: Swap "Password" for "Armor" and "Black Market" for "Slanted"

Step 1: Sweep "Combust" all over the lid and a bit past the crease.

Step 2: Using a felt-tip black liquid eyeliner, draw a cat-eye. To keep it easy, start by creating the shape and size of the wing you want at the outer corner of the eye and then go back and draw along your lash line (connecting it to the wing) making sure to fill in and get close to the lashes.

Step 3: Apply "Radar" in the crease and blend. Using a small shadow brush, sweep "Smolder" along the lower lashline.

Step 4: Brush "Slanted" into the inner corner and sweep across the lid, into and below the crease.

Alternatives: Swap "Combust" for "Whiskey", "Radar" for "Armor", and "Smolder" for "Dirty Sweet"

Step 1: Sweep "Dagger" all over the lid.

Step 2: Apply "Armor" in the crease, concentrating it in the outer corner and applying along your bottom lashline. Blend well.

Step 3: Use a waterproof black liner (Laramie used Doll 10 Aqua Gel Liner in Noir (opens in new tab)) along the waterline, tightline (AKA straight up in the lashes), and your lash line. Add a touch more of "Armor" to the lower lash line.

Step 4: Press "Dirty Sweet" in the inner corner to finish the look.

Alternatives: Swap "Dagger" for "Black Market" and "Armor" for "Smolder"
