  • Start with Philly as a transition shade and work it all over the lid.
  • Next, take Atlanta, a matte red-brown, and blend it deep into the crease smoking out both matte shades.
  • Place Miami, a metallic peachy gold, on the inner half of the eyelid and marry it with Las Vegas, a metallic cranberry red, towards the center and outer half of the lid. 
  • Dip your blending brush into Atlanta again and blend out any harsh edges, focusing on the outer crease to add dimension to your eyes. 
  • To add a little sexiness to the look, take a pencil brush dipped in Philly and Atlanta and smoke out the outer corner of your lower lash line. 
  • To brighten the inner corner, stamp a little bit of Houston in the tear duct area.
  • Finally, add lashes and/or mascara and you’re ready to finish the look with a bold lip!
