Using the Clarins eye shadow quad as an example, sweep shade 4 over your lids. Next, take shade 2 and blend it into your crease. Apply shade 1 under your brow bone and in the corners of your eyes this really opens up your eye. Use shade 3 for blending into the outer corner and along the lower lash line. Finish it off with a few coats of mascara.
