Go over the eyelid pencil you used and go lower on your lash line with a medium flat-tipped brush. Be sure to blend your colors taking into account your dark color and brushing that color upward and slightly over the crease using windshield wiper motions.
After that, apply the lightest color on the brow bone area. Be sure to blend down towards the crease to get rid of any harsh lines or streaks. Next apply the sparkly color along the lower lash line. To complete your look applies fake eyelashes or if you are confident in your lash power, apply several coats of mascara. Apply the glittery makeup towards the inner lower lash line for added sparkle. Then line your eyes with a black eye liner

Another look involves applying your sparkly shadow to your eyebrows. Supermodel Gigi Hadid made up her own eyebrow highlighter. Make your own get an angled brush and a small doll up of eyelash glue to keep the look in place.
