The placement of highlights is very important when trying to create naturally beautiful eye makeup. Your lighter colors (whites, creams, and pearls) should be applied in the inner corners, the middle of the eye, and just under your brow bone. Apply your lightest colors first, and then move on to your darker shades.

- Take your matte (not sparkly) eyeshadow and generously apply it to the area in which you just applied your base. Be sure to blend this shadow in with any existing shadow on your eyelid or lower lash line to avoid a harsh look. You can do this by taking a clean eyeshadow brush and lightly blending the two colors together until a natural gradient appears.
- Dab your pointer finger into your sparkly, loose eyeshadow pigment. Place this pigment just on the innermost part of the V-shaped region– your pointer finger is the ideal size required for the trick! This will add the perfect amount of “sparkle” while still appearing natural. There’s no need to blend since your look is actually dramatized by having such a tightly concentrated region of sparkle.
