Wolff explains that since she started the tutorial with her foundation already applied, the first step is reaching for a creamy eye shadow stick (or even a kohl pencil—whatever you have on hand) that promises long, budge-proof wear. (Because no one wants migrating eye makeup mid-meeting, right?)
After applying your favorite foundation as you normally would, Wolff says to take your shadow stick (she likes the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Heather Steel—a deep gray-purple), and “sketch” it all along the outer part of the eye and into the lash line. Then, blend it out with a brush like Fenty Beauty’s Precision Blending Eyeshadow Brush 230 ($24).
“Blend using soft, small strokes to achieve that subtle smokiness in the outer corners of the eyes,” she instructs.
