Hi, I'm Daniela Rowson. I'm a makeup artist and I'm going to show you how to apply gray and white eyeshadow on the oval eyes. The products that we will need are, gray and white eyeshadow, a blending brush, and a placement brush. So, we're going to start by applying this gray eyeshadow on the crease. And this is the matte eyeshadow, so it will give you a really nice definition on the eyes. We're going to start on the outer part on the crease. And you can make it as dramatic as you want or as soft as you want, since it's more of a middle ground look. And then you want to blend it really well by doing just like soft circles and easing up on the tension on your brush. And matte colors on the crease look a lot better and they define the eye much better than a shimmery color. So, our next step will be adding the white right on the lid. You want to start just patting it on there and then we'll blend it after we've done applying the color. You can also use a shimmery white if you want. I'd rather use it mainly on the lid. If you want to use it as a highlighting color, make sure that it's not as bright, so more of a matte color. And then we're just going to go back with the blending brush and blend those two together, so you don't have harsh lines. And then we'll do the same thing on the other side. So, when you're using black and white colors on oval eyes, just make sure that you keep it more matte and simple so it doesn't look too dramatic. My name is Daniela Rowson and thanks for watching.
