STEP 8: Use some eye shadow on the lower lash line and follow it up by applying some kajal on your waterline.

STEP 9: Add a dash of mascara to accentuate your eyelashes. This will open up and define your eyes.

STEP 10: Using an eye brow pencil, fill in the gaps in your eyebrows. This will help you to define the arch and give you a nice sharp look.
