    Change your eye color, if you wish. If you have colored contact lenses to change your eye color you can put them in before or after you do your makeup. This step is optional.
    • It is recommended to put them in before so that you don't smudge your makeup.

    Use a light pink or white eyeshadow.
    • Apply the eyeshadow all over your lid and just above the crease.
