    Tu-Anh: Hey there, my name is Tu-Anh and I am showing you how to create Smokey eyes. Now, I am going to show you how to highlight underneath your brows and I assume that you have already chosen a highlighter color. It could be a white shimmery color a pink shimmery color, it really depends but as long as it has some shimmer and it is light, you should be fine. The other thing you need is an all over eye shadow brush again. So, you can do the same brush but flip the other side or you can have another brush and what I am going to do right now is Christina already has her Smokey creation there and I am just going to dot a little bit on my hand here, so it does not come on too much.

    What we are going to do is we are going to go right underneath the brows, as you can start to see it coming out right now. I assume that you already have your brows shaped as well because if you have bushy brows, it is not going to do anything. She has got a beautiful shape here and you are also going to put a little bit of this color on the lid, just right from the inside going towards the middle and now you can see it starting to blend out. Open, that looks beautiful; I am going to do the other side now. I always choose the white silvery color, mostly on olive skin tone because it looks really good, but for those of you with really fair skin tone, I probably would choose something with little bit more gold in it. Again, you go in the middle and out little bit, let me just blend this, okay and that is how you highlight the brows. Now, I am going to show you how to apply eyeliner and mascara.
