    Professional make-up artist, Tu-Anh, demonstrates how to make your eyes look bigger including tips for applying eye shadow.

    Tu-Anh Nguyen: Hi! I am Tu-Anh with Polished by Tu-Anh. I am showing you how to make your eyes look bigger. And now I am going to show you how to apply eyeshadow. And let's take an All Over Eyeshadow brush and let me set the eyes. Look down please Lana. Okay, and this is just to help prevent greasing later on. Okay, look at me. Okay perfect. So I am actually going to use a lavender purple color on Lana to bring out the greenish-gray but she has got very fair complexion, so we can do brown as well, but I am not going to do brown today. Look down for me, okay. You want to start right on top of the lid and going all away to the right and start on light and build up, okay. If you see here I am focusing on the middle because what you want to do is if you focus on the middle it opens up the eyes. Okay, look up, okay. Look down, Look up. And then I am going to use an Eye Contour brush, I am going to apply -- I am going to smudge some eyeshadow at the bottom of the eye, look up, but I am going do it from the middle only. If you can see I am actually not applying it all the way across. I am only focusing on opening up in the middle. Okay, let's see the other eye. Okay. Sometimes use smudge eye shadows on the rest of your face, I wouldn't use your fingers or anything, I will just use a brush like this or a little smaller and just wipe it off, okay. And also the important thing as well is to make sure that you already have your complexion prepped which means concealer, foundation powder and blush, okay. And that's how you apply eyeshadow. Next I am going to show you how to apply Eyeliner and Mascara.
